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

I stayed here over night and loved it. The hotel is located right near the highway (75) and surrounded by a variety of shopping and restaurants. The hotel is kinda nestled away, but worth finding.

The staff was very friendly and the breakfast staff very hospitable. It's an okay place for a need, but I wouldn't recommend it for a family trip. Could be neater and cleaner. And NO FOX NEWS CHANNEL! Bathroom clean but not bright. Beds hard.

Very strange location, in the middle of an empty strip mall. Sketchy motel next door. Not near any restaurants. That said, it is clean and friendly. I would not leave anything in the car. It is $20 less than comparable hotels in area.

My wife, two grand-daughters and I stayed here overnight heading back home from Disney. It appears that this is an old hotel that they have been "refreshing" with minor repairs and paint. Easy to get to off I-75, beds were comfortable and the breakfast was hot and well stocked. Nothing special, but nothing specifically wrong.
