They refused refund so I called a couple days later and talked to general manager, Crystal. She too refused to refund. She said we stayed, I told her no we...

Thank you for your response; however, after reading your description of the room I am certain this is not a Magnuson Baton Rouge room. The reason for my statement is that we do not have bedskirts, nor do we have sofas in our rooms. Please review your receipt from your stay. If in fact it states Magnuson Hotel Baton Rouge,...

We booked a room here on our way back to Texas from Tennessee, and I can't even say why I chose this hotel out of all of the other choices! It was the worst! Had two ten year olds begging to leave the minute we opened the door! The room smelled horrible, was filthy, and had holes in the wall!...
