we recenly stayed at the Magnuson Marina Cove and we had a very enjoyable time. The rooms were pretty standard but they were nice and clean and the cleaning staff were right on top of things. The hotel is quiet so if you're looking for alot of action it's not for you. The washroom was clean and nice and roomy.There is a boat cruise that leaves from the hotel called the Adventure Boat Cruise which is a must do!! The hotel is conveniently located right at the 275 entrance and is within a 20 minute drive to Clearwater,Treasure Island, Madiera Beach and Tampa. There is also a huge mall nearby called the Tyrone Shopping Center.The beach at the hotel is not that great so you would probably want to use the pools. The restaurant (The Periscope) left a lot to be desired and the first night we got there we didn't pay enough attention to the bill and left a 15% tip not realizing they had already INCLUDED an 18% tip in the bill. We were NOT happy about it. Believe me the sevice was not worth the 18 % let alone 38%!!!! I would stay at this hotel again it was enjoyable and reasonably priced.
