This hotel is a fine place to stay. I can't really say anything particularly bad about it, but there also wasn't anything great about it. It isn't close to anything. We had to drive 15 minutes to get dinner. The room was clean, but nothing special. I saw a review that said they didn't feel safe in the parking lot... More

Unfortunately the furnature and decor is from the late 1960s or early 1970s and it also appears it hasn't been kept up since then. They allow pets but unless everything else is booked, as it was for me, I will not return to this place.

We booked about 10 rooms at the Magnuson Grand Hotel for our Boys' High School Tennis team and their families. The manager, Aaron, was a pleasure to work with by phone and email (on short notice). Check-in went quickly and smoothly, and our rooms were all together in the same hallway. The double rooms were large and clean, my only... More

Definitely would choose somewhere else. Kind of rundown and dingy looking inside. It was not the WORST but DEFINITELY would not stay again. We chose this location out of convenience on our trip, and it appeared to be a nice place and good value. We also thought we may go to the casino down the street, which we ended up... More

I booked this hotel through Hotwire, which listed the hotel as having an airport shuttle.. an important feature because I didn't have a car on the night I arrived. When I called during my travel in Portland to arrange pickup upon arrival in Madison, I was told they have a shuttle but that it was all booked up with a... More

My family and I came to this hotel for 2 nights. They did not clean our room once throughout our entire stay. When we talked to the front desk about it they said we were lying and it was cleaned. The room was gross and smelled. No towls, soaps, or garbages were replenished and no beds were made. I was... More

This was our second stay at the hotel. The first was good but this was bad. They advertise free internet is all rooms. We had none. When I went to the front desk the girl behind the desk was very flustered. She was making pizza, answering the phone and waiting on the desk! When I went to ask about changing... More

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.
