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

This is our second visit here; the first was sometime last year... a few months after they opened. It was fantastic then. After reading the reviews, we were skeptical of the "rodent poops". We stayed on the third floor and all I can say is that you need to vacuum the back of the beds by the headboards because there... More

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

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.

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
