Magnuson Hotel Clearwater Central

Reviewed September 11, 2013

As mentioned above this place is a pleasant and clean place to stay for a very reasonable rate. It has a very nice pool with shaded areas to hang out. The staff is very nice and always accommodating. It is also convenient to Tampa Airport and the Clearwater area in general. I will continue to use this Hotel each time I go down there.

I have gone to this hotel many times and I always have a great experience. They cater to everyone and anyone. No matter your preference; dogs, pets, babies, cribs, families, smoking or non-smoking, late or early check out. They just make everything so easy and seamless. I keep coming up with new requests for them and I hardly ever hear them say no. They are all very friendly and over the last few months have even gotten to know my family. :)

It is obviously a low cost hotel so don't have unrealistic expectations but you get a lot for a very cheap price. I wouldn't stay anywhere else based on my experience.

Room Tip: Be direct with the front desk and let them know of any special requests. If you give them time they...

Value was great. Front desk staff was friendly. The door to our room should be replaced. The key card didn't work at first until we pulled and pushed on door to get it to open. Had to pull up on door on the inside to get the deadbolt to work. Really didn't feel secure. The shower has a ceramic soap dish had head level and my friend hit her face off of it and got a cut on her eyebrow and ended up with a black eye. Came back from spending the day at Clearwater Beach at 5:00 and found that our room had not been serviced. Had to go to the lobby to get our clean towels. They only had a one clean towel set to give us. She had to delivery them to us 1/2 hour later. Housekeeping showed up at 6:00 wanting to service our room. We said no as we were getting ready to go out for the evening. Bed and pillows need replaced. VERY uncomfortable. Location was hard to get to with all the construction going on. Probably would not stay here again.

There were women in the lobby who appeared to be prostitutes. There were bugs in the bathroom and fleas on the bathroom counter.
