The hotel does not much look like the pictures they use for marketing but it is a pretty decent hotel. It just is far away from city center. Macon has very nice houses. But city center is a bit run down. The hotel has a swimming pool but it is embedded by their parking lot.

Very nice stay and would stay again in the future. Friendly staff and very clean. The complimentary breakfast was nice, warm and fresh. Parking was convenient, the room was spacious and very comfortable.

Clean room with comfy bed. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Breakfast was decent for a hotel breakfast... Had scrambled eggs, sausage gravy with biscuits, waffles. Room was already nice and cool when we got there. Will definitely stay here again when in Macon.

We hadn't made reservations for the night because we were traveling to Florida and wanted to drive as far as possible before we stopped for the night. Once we decided to stop, every hotel was completely booked. We called every hotel that showed up on our GPS within a 30 mile stretch along I-75. Finally, Magnuson Hotel said they had... More

Dear tomwyant, Oh boy!

When I am in the area for business, I usually stay at this hotel. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating they go above and beyond to ensure I have pleasant stay. Hotel was clean, comfortable and breakfast had plenty of options. Would definitely continue to stay here.

Pretty good overall, but not as good as we expected from a hotel with a 4.1 rating. A bit dated style wise, curtains and fixtures were old. Small things like ripped shower curtain, toilet seat too small for the toilet, furniture not dusted, stained bed skirts, TV stand too low prevent us from giving it an excellent rating. But bigger...

I usually travel to the area for business. I need a place that fits my budget that my company gives me. I found that this place was fantastic. The hotel staff was more than helpful when I needed a shaving kit that I forgot at home. They really went out of their way to make me feel like home. Neil... More

Good hotel for travelers, short stays at an economical price. Rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. Some things might be a little worn but overall it was a good stay. Breakfast was pretty much the standard thing for this class of hotel...make your own waffles, etc. Pool was clean but pretty busy in the evening. Waffle House and... More

This place is a nightmare!!!!! When I checked in and took a look around I saw that it was a dingy little motel but I needed a cheap place for a 2-day visit to Macon, my 1st mistake. I had housekeeping change my sheets because I saw a drop of BLOOD on the white sheets. When I asked how often... More

The hotel and the room were clean. I was pleasantly surprised considering where the hotel was located. It almost looked abandoned. However when I got in my room....comfort. The staff was pleasant as well.
