Did not feel safe- the parking lot was very dimly lit with only one bright light and the parking around that light filled up quickly, I had to park in a fairly dark spot and didn’t feel safe running out to my car at 10pm to grab something. Rooms were not very clean and looked worn. The first room had... More

This hotel is very nice. Free breakfast with pancakes, juice and yogurt is consistent daily. Great hotel staff! ! Suite has sofa that comfortable. King bed is very relaxing and firm. Room had desk, microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker. Bathroom standard but works well. Iron and ironing board. No alcohol casino with no smoking section just down the road.

The place is older, but it was clean. Very inexpensive at 75 bucks for a sat night. Had pool and hottub. Easy to find location. Staff friendly. Not high class by any means but a place to sleep. Good enough.

They just recently remodeled their hotel everything from carpet to new paint this is my second time staying at this hotel and I'm 100% satisfied with this place and the way it's being ran. Everyone that works here is nice and very friendly also a plus that it's right next to a casino

After the second year in a row we would like to share the experiences we had the Magnuson Grand Hotel in Madison WI. Our Family spend a weekend together to celebrate Christmas. Once again Aaron, the manager,was with us every step of the way. From the months before, to check-in to check-out, he was there for us, making sure everything... More

I have stayed at the Magnuson 3 consecutive years, each stay a week in duration. I have never been disappointed. Is this the Ritz-Carlton? No. That being said, it offers a touch of luxury at a very reasonable rate... Think value for dollars spent here, people. The King whirlpool suite ( which is what I've always rented ) is extra...

Stayed here for one night two weeks ago. The front desk was okay, but not very welcoming. Our rooms weren't quite ready, but we were there prior to check in time, so that's totally understandable. The hallways were a little scary looking with red primer on the walls, but they are undergoing renovations, and that does take time, so there... More
