It's a nice hotel, the only bad thing I could mention it's maybe the parking lot, you may get a spot far away from your room, beside this, the hotel is clean, the staff is very helpful and it has a good location.

Great hotel to stay for a vacation. Awesome air conditioning. Will definitely be staying there again when we go to Brownsville. Very great price value. Loved swimming in the big pool. A very convenient hotel can get to any place in Brownsville less then 5 minutes.

The hotel has great access to everything downtown area and mall very close by. The pool was very clean was able to do some laps and then a quick workout in their gym area. The best part was the FREE Wi-Fi it was a great speed. Thank you Magnuson hotel for a perfect stay.

My first impression upon arrival, to be honest, wasn't favorable. It's clearly an older property, and the lobby looks like a circa-1968 Ramada Inn. But the room was very nice, nicely outfitted and comfortable. Overall, the atmosphere was quiet and felt secure. I would easily recommend staying here, especially considering that the cost is below a lot of the other...

I stay at this property when I am working late and I don't want to drive home...it's a basic property bur everything is clean and works. Much more secure than similarly priced hotels in the area, and the attached restaurant is pretty good (but not free).
