Magnuson Hotel Clearwater Beach
Ranked #59 of 98 Hotels in Clearwater
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I picked the Magnuson Hotel Clearwater Beach based on Trip Advisor reviews, the price and the proximity to the beach! All were perfect. Granted the hotel could definitely use some updating ... I'm sure in it's day ... it was the best on the beach. There were always workers seen fixing, painting or cleaning some area of the place ... so they are trying. I like the smaller hotels rather that going 25 floors and down a long hallway to your room. We stayed on the top floor right in the middle. Our view was amazing! The hotel was in walking distance to everything we needed. The kitchenette came in handy to make lunch and for a place to store beverages/snacks to take across the street to the beach. We loved our four night stay and would stay there again!

My sisters and myself had the pleasure of staying here from 10-10-13 through 10-13-13. The staff was very efficient and friendly and we especially want to commend Kristin on her excellent customer service skills, What an asset to your company. She made our stay very enjoyable and is a very sweet young lady. We will be staying again next year when we make our annual trip.

Thank you again

Room Tip: We had an ocean view room which was quite nice. Were pleased with all they had to offer.

This hotel is all about location, location, location! Right across the street from the beach, it is central to everything! We had a Gulf View room and I would highly recommend choosing it, the view is amazing! The hotel is a bit old and dated, but if you are there to enjoy everything Clearwater has to offer, it is perfect! We were only in the room to sleep and clean up. The hotel staff was very nice and the rooms kept clean. We didn't use the pool (why would you with ocean right there?), but all in all, it was a nice place. I will be booking our family vacation for June 2014 and we will be staying here!

Room Tip: Choose a Gulf view room, amazing view and not too much more than a regular room.

Great location across from the beach .Free on site parking .All restaurants are a walkable distance
We had a great time ,staff very friendly .

Don't expect 4* luxury it's a very well used beach hotel .This is reflected in the room Price.

We knew what we were expecting so we were not disappointed .

I booked a sea view room...the room is a little bit old but wide and clean...the view from balcony was fab and the balcony itself is big enough. The location of this hotel is amazing , close to every thing and the beach is accrose the street...big number of fine places to eat in and the Surff mall ( clothes and super market ) is just 2 minutes walking....i would like to add a quick tips to enjoy your stay in this property :
1. Take a room only at sea side , the back room will disappoint you...not wide , no view , just a small window...espicially if you are a smoker , you have to take a room at sea side...the property is a smoke free...if you want to smoke , you could enjoy your cigarett with your coffe enjoyining the beach and sea (a fab view of sun set ). Guests on back rooms were sitting in the collidor out their rooms to smoke and bcs the rooms are small , they prefered to stay out to drink , smoke and talk...of course it is not a good idea to book a room and sit in front the door.
2.There is a very well kitchenet in the room with a fridge , microwave , sink and coffe maker along with mugs and all utenslis you may need during your stay..also there a small dine table with 2 chairs beside another 2 chairs in the balcony.
3. The price of sea view is much higher of course , but if you are in budget it is ok , you will have a very good location and a place to sleep...but read my tip # 2 again before you decide.
4. i booked my two double rooms during the long weekend of Labor day , this is why the price was high...but comparing with the similar hotels in front of the beach , that one was the best after the luxury very expensive hotels in the area ( like HYAHTT , Mariot , Hilton..etc ) . I made a phisical survey within all small hotels in front of the beach and found out that Magnuson is the best value for money...for the sea side room , always remember that : ) i uploaded some photos from my balcony to understand what i mean.
5. The pool is quite good , clean and is the biggest among all similar hotels at sea side.
6.Try to have aroom third or fourth floor for better view bcs the palms may hide the sea a little.
7. Breakfast very basic with packed items..we never had , but it wasn't a problem at all...go out the hotel , to lift or right you will find many restaurants and snack bar which serve a yummy breakfast...even Madonalds is 1 min walking.

Whenever i go back to Clearwater Beach i will stay there again...i wish you a pleasent stay and joyable time like we had.

Room Tip: Room with sea view in high floor.

Only stayed one night and had a good stay.Hotel does look a dated,we had a sea view room on the top floor the view was fab.The room was fine comfy beds and microwave coffee maker.For the price we paid it was very good.Only issue I have is that we dropped a cup and broke the handle,reported it on checkout girl said not to worry,only to return home and find a $1 charge on credit card.Would have just given them a dollar if they would have said ,only minor issue but couldn't believe they charged my card for dollar!!
