“Made anew!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

After a cruise through town,,,, (and a price check at the Ramada $160) this property stood out. Obviously the "newly renovated" on the sign had some backing to it. My wife checked the room while I discussed price, the answer from her was "beautiful" . The new owner explained how he has been investing and upgrading this property, from the waterfall patio area in the parking lots,,,, to the rooms. Pleasantly surprised after booking a single Queen, discovering that the room was a king, all new! Could not find a ladder to access the extra thick King size bed, great sleep by the way ;) Some problems with the Wifi at first, fixed very quickly,,, and the teen age Son (IT support) came to check on us and ensure all was fixed.
Within walking to a nearby plaza, restauraunts... Very impressed over all, good gob on a great place to stay. Now,,,,, I'm off to the free breakfast ;)

Room Tip: rooms directly across the parking lot from the lobby get the afternoon / early evening shade first...

Thank you for your review of the Magnuson Hotel. We have had many positive comments on the comfy beds this season. Maybe we will look into little stepladders to get into the beds. lol We hope to see you both again when you visit Creston and area.

This hotel has mostly been renovated and there are still renovations happening in the court yard. Breakfast was small but it was there all the same. We were there when it was mostly empty, that could explain the size of the complimentary breakfast.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Magnuson Hotel, Laura. The waterscape and BBQ area in the courtyard is now complete. We think you will find it very relaxing. The continental breakfast has been very popular and we will try harder at keeping it fully stocked for all guests from 7am-10am. Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon.

Not fancy, but an excellent place to spend a night. Got a very good sleep, and very friendly service. Owner ran out to meet us as we were leaving to give us a map with directions to where we were going. Highly recommend.

We started by having a curry in the adjoining restaurant (very good) then stayed at the motel. Room was quiet, with nice bed. the room has microwave, coffee maker and fridge. Bathroom has rain shower head. floors were hardwood and tile, and very clean. Clerk was very friendly and interested. All in all a great experience.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Magnuson Hotel on TripAdvisor. The spring and summer has been filled with customers having a great experience here at the Magnuson. We are thrilled you had one too. The outdoor waterscape and BBQ area is now finished and we think you will have an even better stay next time.

I decided to try the Magnuson after being dissapointed by the Ramada on my last business trip. This was a great choice. The beds were as comfortable, the staff much more professional and the rooms cleaner. A couple of the renovation choices are still a little old fashioned (bedding), but a nice, clean, friendly place to stay.

Extremely pleased. Good service, good rates, and fantastic staff. We were there on a motorcycle and they were glad to have use unlike some places. They are actually anxious to have more motorcycles and group come there. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Motel is close to all amenities. A great place to stay. I'll be back and I'll recommend it to others.

Room Tip: I have stayed at the front and in the middle and have found both to be equal.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Magnuson,Sandra. We are always happy to see all the bikers enjoying the world famous Selkirk Loop. We would very much like to see the Magnuson become a preferred stop for the many bike tours throughout the biking season. Our waterscape and BBQ area is now finished for you to relax and enjoy on your next stay.

Recently stayed at the Magnuson and had my expectation met.

This is NOT a Four Seasons property, so do not expect the amenities that you would of a 5 star calibre hotel.
The Magnuson is your typical old school independent "motel", however it has recently been renovated. The room decor was bland, but comfortable, clean and fairly spacious. The renovations included new laminate flooring, paint and full bathroom redo. The bath tub was absolutely huge and was a treat to soak in after a day of playing baseball.

This isn't usually the type of place I'd stay, but due to the fact that the one major hotel chain in Creston was booked solid, I gave it a shot.

The only issue I had was the fact that the "free wifi" signal didn't reach the room I was located in.

If you are in the area, and are looking for a place to lay your head, check out the Magnuson.

Thank you for the review Mark. We have addressed the WiFi issues by removing the three old modems and installing five new higher powered modems. We have also installed Shaw's new Shaw Go WiFi for existing Shaw customers. We feel this should give us perfect coverage throughout the 51 rooms. Thank you for giving us a shot and we hope to see you again.
