Very clean. Owners onsite and very accommodating. Always upgrading. Good stay for not a lot of money. Lots of places to eat in area. Two or three diners next door. Will definitely stay again. Owners onsite and very accommodating.

Hotel is in the process of updating room, furniture, carpet, etc. Our room had been updated. King bed was very comfortable, lots of pillows soft and firm. Great water pressure and endless hot water. Room and carpet very clean, fresh paint although you could see obvious flaws painted over but some of the rough painted over seams in the ceiling...

Had to leave Charleston because of Hurricane Matthew. I chose Magnuson Hotel in Union because it seemed far enough away and the price was reasonable. It was a very lucky find. The proprietors were warm and welcoming. The room had everything I might need; it was well-lighted for reading, TV had HBO and TCM, there was a fridge. There was...

What a gem in disguise. The rooms are upgraded and are VERY Clean. The owners are the absolute best.. They show concern for the guests. The swimming pool is very well maintained and clean. This is the place to stay in Union South Carolina. The free WiFi works great. We stayed here Two Weeks.

My husband and I were in Union SC for the Steel in Motion event. What a good time! Classic cars, vintage campers, old bicycles, drag races, and pin up girls, what fun!! So imagine our delight when we pulled into the Magnuson drive. Reminiscent of a 50's/60's motor inn, minus the neon. The proprietress greets her guests warmly and engaged...

I recently enjoyed a two night stay and it was very relaxing. Union SC might not have a lot of things to do, but Spartanburg and Greenville are only a short drive away. Don't let the outward appearance of the hotel dissuade you. The rooms are newly refurbished and very clean. Unfortunately the pool was not yet open for the...

I booked a room with Magnuson because of the high ratings and remarks other people had made and they were on the mark. There wasn't anything we were not happy with. The room was so clean with none of the normal room odors hotels/motels have. The bed was comfortable and we all sleep well. The rate was unbelievable considering our...

My husband and I traveled to Union for a baseball tournament, and stayed here for 5 days. The room was CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, and AFFORDABLE!! The owners work very hard, and have a wonderful motel. They are accomodating in any way they can be. The pool is clean and a good size. The location is convenient to restaurants, shopping, and the...
