The front desk was nice enough, he gave clear directions. The room we received was clean and safe. If you are just looking for a place to lay your head down then this will do. It is nothing fancy. The elevator was non operational at the time of my stay

Was cheated by these East Indians from Punjab who run this former Best Western. They verbally agreed to let me stay an extra morning if I paid them cash and they reneged on this denying any knowledge of the verbal cash agreement and realized I had no receipt to back myself up. it wasn't written anywhere and I got a...

Excellent service by front desk. Quick check inn. Good view from hotel. LED tv, high speed internet. Near from college and interstate is like 0.4 miles far. Indoor property with complete security for their guest. House keepers gave service daily. Worth it stay and what I paid was worth it.

We checked into Magnuson for a two night stay. We noticed immediately that there was no pool as advertise. Closed for repairs. Then we got to our room there was mold in the bathtub, a tray of sticky stuff in the corner in the bathroom with live crickets trying to escape. The two lights at the end of the bed,... More

I have stayed in some pretty horrible hotels over the years and this ranks among the worst. The gentleman who owns the place seemed friendly and polite, and I honestly believe that he and his family/staff are just in over their heads. I took the creepy elevator to the second floor and noticed the rank stench of pot and cigarettes... More

This was completely opposite of the pics online...no elevators, pool covered with a rotting tarp full of debris and disgusting water. Since elevator was broken had to use stairwell which smelled of soured urine and obvious marks on the wall where someone peed. There was a homeless person sleeping at the very end of a dark, smelly hallway. Pre-Paid about... More

I stayed for one night in this hotel because it was getting late, I needed a bed, and saw nowhere else. The hotel looks like a former member of a chain, which has passed into private hands - I suspect it may have been a Best Western. I was pleased to see, on entering, a breakfast room. Having checked in... More
