Our experience at the Magnuson was great! The cost was MINIMAL and it was just what we needed - a place to stay while in Macon watching a baseball tournament. The hotel is clean, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the room was quiet, the bed was comfortable and it was overall a great experience. We'll definitely stay here... More

As good as a capable $3-$7 bottle of wine is a hotel/motel that does a fine job of getting the basics right at a superior value. To be clear, my ratings are reflected on those expectations, not in comparison to places like The Four Seasons. This is the category of hotel I use when I am going to be spending... More

I travel to Macon 2-3 times a year and am still looking for the preferred hotel. This wasn't it. It popped up in a search and had amazing reviews. From the picture I couldn't place it but it was a great price and was willing to give it a go. When I pulled up I was extremely apprehensive. I believe... More

Was passing through Macon on my way to Trenton, New Jersey making business stops along the way. I got caught in a horrible rain and lightening storm and decided to stop due to traffic. I called ahead and got very easy directions as they are literally right off the interstate and everything was ready when I got there. Quick and... More

This was the suprise of the century for us. Very good price and a superb hotel room. We were blown away with how nice it was. The staff was wonderful as well. Breakfast was pretty lame but who cares with all the other pleasantries!

The beds were very comfortable giving us a good night sleep. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was average I guess but theres a waffle house just down the street. Location of this hotel is convenient to Interstate 75. Parking lot can be a little difficult to navigate to the hotel. We felt safe there. Would return again

The hotel is on the southbound side of I-75 Macon. Hard to see entrance in the dark; its behind the Shell gas station. (They could use a gigantic sign on the top of the building facing I-75) It was previously a Holiday Inn Express fronting a strip mall. Looks like they've done quite a bit of revamping (paint & carpeting,... More

Dear minniemae, Here at the Magnuson Hotel Macon, we do in fact do quite a bit of "revamping" to keep our hotel looking nice, clean and up to date. This includes of course, the quality of our showers! We are happy yo hear that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for great review! Thank you, Lisa- Front desk More

It was a perfect stay. Clean comfortable rooms, great pillows, soft beds. The breakfast was probably the best free breakfast I have seen. Biscuits and gravy, pancakes, eggs, sausage, yogurt, pastries and cereal. Didn't have time to swim but the pool was nice. Worth the money for sure.

A little ways off the highway but easy to find with your gps. Friendly and helpful staff, even for meetings. Bar and restaurant in hotel and very adequate. Other food is mainly on other side of I75. I will stay here again
