You can't beat the location and the pool and hot tub were great, but they need to spend more time keeping the rooms and hallways clean. It seems more like a less than $75 hotel. The breakfast needs a few more options like jam and peanut butter for the toast. Pretty heavy on the carbs.

GROTTY does NOT being to describe this hotel. Do yourself a favor, pony up a little more and get quality accommodation. The unpleasantries, as other reviewers have mentioned are so numerous and so blatantly obvious it is not worth complaining as the owner/s are fully aware of how disgusting the place is. For starters, I can not figure out if... More

The first impression was a pull out couch outside the building, pulled out and looking nasty. Cigarette butts everywhere and a big bucket of Cigarette butts outside the door that smelled so bad every time you walked in and out. The rooms were not cleaned yet when I checked in at 4:00pm (check-In time). Came back at 6:00, and my... More

My extended family stayed here for an overnight visit and rented three rooms. One room smelled heavily of smoke, despite being rented as a non-smoking room, and the second smelled of mold. No room changes were allowed because of the level of occupancy, so we had to bring an ionizer and fan into the room and left the hallway door... More

Using the term hotel is a bit of a reach, more motel. The location is near Nisswa center, about 2 miles, but that's about it. Decor was 70's, rooms small and the bathroom could hardly fit 2 people standing together. The smoking area, outside was at the back of the site, right by the back entrance where our room was,...

I stayed here for two nights with my family and dog. I arrived into town early by only a couple hours, and they refused to check me in. I have worked at a front desk before at a hotel, and I always checked if the room was clean and ready. If it was, what does it hurt to check someone... More

I stayed at the Magnuson on a recent Friday and Saturday night. To be honest, I chose the Magnuson because it was the cheapest hotel I could find that weekend. You do get what you pay for! My stay wasn't bad, it was just interesting. The Christmas lights that are obviously left up all year mixed with the leopard valances... More

Our room was a suite with a separate bedroom, two AC units, two TVs, a convertible sofa, and a small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. My kids were thrilled with the number of available power outlets in both rooms. The free wifi seemed to work well for the kids, who used it for everything from social media to gaming. The... More

This hotel was clean and comfortable. We stayed here during Lakes Jam for 2 nights. Conveniently located for events at BIR. There is no elevator as far as we saw so if mobility is an issue request a 1st floor! Check in was easy and express checkout is available. The rooms have a safe, microwave and mini fridge. Our bed...
