This is a converted Holiday Inn Express. We were traveling to Florida and just decided to stop and get a hotel. Booked it on hotels.com from our phone. Front desk staff was amazing. My wife wasn't feeling well and they got her some hot tea. Breakfast was great (sausage and gravy, waffles, and full continental). Room was pretty standard. Clean....and... More

The first room I was given had rat poop in both beds. When I called the front desk it was apparently they were not surprised. They moved me to another room. 30 minutes after I turned everything off and settled into bed the rodents started scratching and running in the walls. I got NO REST!! I asked to speak to... More

Maybe it was the room, we were on the first floor, but there were Roaches in the bathroom, and Roaches crawling on the walls and ceiling of our room. The tub was full of water and didn't drain. We were exhausted just needed to sleep a few hours. We slept in our clothes and left as soon as possible. DON'T... More

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
