cheap - breakfast included . clean if dated room. better value than the colored roof hotel chain down the road - and cleaner too. breakfast selection better than anticipated and included a funky pancake conveyor machine so your pancakes are hot and fresh.

"MAG" offers a great hotel in a great location with everything you need and nothing you don't and it is a 100% SMOKE FREE facility. The rates are what they are - and seem high to me after mid-west travels - BUT they are in line/identical with ALL their neighbors AND they're the ONLY one here with a full FREE... More

Rooms were basic but clean and spacious / free breakfast was good. Great location - everyone was very friendly - even when we checked in close to midnight. We were traveling w another family - by request they put us in rooms next to each other. I'd def stay again.

When we first arrived I was a bit skeptical about this hotel. The outside looked very old and somewhat run down. However after arriving at our room I was pleasantly surprised. The room had two double beds but it was quite roomy. The room was clean the beds comfortable and the bathroom was good size. I wish there had been... More

I have stayed here twice this year and the Magnuson did meet my needs. An upgrade of the building and rooms would do wonders but the rooms were clean and properly serviced every day. The hotel is convenient to many restaurants and shopping as well as movie theaters which brought me back a second time. The staff was polite and... More

We recently stayed here for the Guns N Roses concert at Gillete Stadium. Location was convienent, we were able to take back roads to the venue and avoid heavy traffic. Hotel is on a main road with many restaurants near by. Ken's steak house is across the street and my favorite mall - Natick is very close by. Hotel looked... More

When I was a kid this was the local Howard Johnson motel and restaurant, which I found amusing. The front lobby building still has the A frame look and the attached restaurant is not a British Beer Company. This hotel is 2.5 star rated and it is pretty much what I expected for that rating, which is actually good because... More

I have been staying at this hotel twice a summer for six years. It is an older property, but it has always been very clean and the rooms are large, quiet and comfortable. This year Magnuson took over from Best Western. Thankfully it is still clean. However, a few things have suffered. When I arrived in June at about 2:00... More

After reading the reviews and rolling the dice, we found this hotel fit our family needs very well, and was a great value overall. We toured the Boston area (flew in/out of Hartford, drove south to Cape Code and New Bedford, north to Salem, Lexington and Lowell) and found Framingham to be very convenient to them all. In addition, it... More

This is a nice hotel near where we needed to be. The hotel is older, but the rooms are nice and the staff is very friendly. The breakfast buffet isn't much. I remember cereal, yogurt, bananas and bagels. Nothing hot like bacon or sausage. There is a British pub next door that I really enjoyed. Overall a good stay. Would... More
