We came to this hotel based on a Priceline deal of sub-$50 per night. We were here on a night traveling to Savannah and we stacked in with three kids. It was clean, quiet, service was good and the breakfast was simple. What more should we ask for?

Everyone was very nice. I loved the shower head. It was relaxing. Floors were not clean so we kept our shoes on. Bed was clean and pillows were very comfortable. Bed was a little hard but we slept ok. Overall for a night or two not too bad.

I was quoted a rate for my reservation and charged a higher rate at checkout. The manager not only refused to refund the difference, but also denied having such a rate--even though it is clearly displayed on their website. I had to dispute the charge through my credit card company. Apparently, Magnuson is a co-op of sorts for hotel owners... More

Very friendly staff, welcomed immediately upon arrival. You can tell they've done a lot of remodeling here and it looks great. But, the bathrooms are still really small and dated and worn looking. Breakfast area is tiny and selection left a lot to be desired. But, the price was right and the bed was comfortable.

Although the location was in a neighborhood that had many empty stores, this hotel is a great place to stay. The 1st room was causing my husband's eyes to water so we figured a previous someone had snuck a dog in it. The night manager immediately found another great room and let us sit in it for a while before... More

We stayed here Friday, March 13. Check-in at 1230 am went smooth. As soon as we entered the room, we found the window covered in heavy condensation with water dripping onto the carpet. This didn't affect our stay, though. Breakfast was not great. The only fruit available was inedible, green bananas. Danishes came from Sam's club. Eggs were soggy, but... More

I was leary at first because of the cheap price, but was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, and smelled clean. Linens were in good condition. The free breakfast wasn't bad, it was free. Would stay there again.

We were driving through and needed a hotel late at night. Picked this one because it had hot breakfast and the first three we checked were full. What a nice surprise. Clean. Friendly service. Big room. Good breakfast. Price was very reasonable and Ronnie, the mgr on duty, was very nice. Two thumbs up from my family.

It may appear a little shabby on the outside but the inside is clean and smells fresh. The room was very large and clean. The bed was really comfortable and the mattress was new. The hot southern breakfast was popular and there was a limited number of cold items.

I should have asked the name of the manager, because he was just the best. In fact, I am rating this "very good" not because there weren't problems, but because he went out of his way to try to solve them for me. I was staying in a handicap accessible room that was too close to the elevator on the... More
