Try for a few more dollars to get something better. Dirty, very. Excellent attention at ck in and great recommendation to have a bite to eat near by, but looks like you have had to have one too many drinks to crash. Next time know better. Just gas stations around ,very industrial part of town. Huge room but DIRTY

Had a lovely stay at the Magnuson. Friendly helpful staff and large spacious room. Lovely swimming pool and close to amenities. A lot of traffic but couldn't be heard in the room. Air conditioning was a life saver for me not being from a hot climate. Overall an enjoyable stay 10 day stay :)

We stayed for one night, travelling from New Orleans to Little Rock. The bedlinen and towels was clean enough, but the floor was really dirty, with hair clips and other stuff on the carpet. It smelled of sigarettes, but the bathroom was clean. The breakfast was allmost okey, like any US motel. That means that the "coffee" was some hot... More

The beds are uncomfortable the breakfast is inedible There is loud traffic noise including a train. I don't understand how this "hotel" could ever get a good review.This is just a low budget motel at best. On a positive note the shower gets very hot.
