Clean hotel, a little far from the beach but other than that it was a really good hotel, clean, we never got to use the pool because it was raining, but it was clean, the rooms were always very clean, the hotel had breakfast every morning so it was good.

I glad to hear that the hotel was to your satisfaction. We are about 15 minutes from the ocean front, but our rates are significantly lower than the rates on the ocean front. Our staff works diligently to maintain the rooms at the Magnuson Hotel and make sure that you have a nice complimentary breakfast. Thank you for posting this wonderful review about the hotel and we look forward to seeing you again.

I arrived at the hotel extremely late. I thought I would have issues checking in, but it was the opposite. The front desk clerk was extremrly nice and put me on the first floor hecause she new I was tired and had a lot of bags. The room was great, very spacious and the kids loved the pool. They helped us with directions and suggested great places to visit. All I can say is that me and the kids already plan to come back next year.

I am thrilled to hear that you can’t wait until next year and we also can’t wait until next year until you return. To know that the kids loved the pool and had an extravagant time means a lot to the Magnuson hotel. Our number one priority is making sure that the guest has a pleasant stay. Once again, we thank you for taking time out to give us a wonderful review and we can’t wait until next year.

Staff here is very friendly. Hotel is conveniently located off the interstate. For the price the rooms are clean and in good shape, would give this place 3 stars. If you are in the area and need a good place to cheap for a good price, this place is worth checking out.

When we arrived at the hotel, the staff was great and friendly, but they failed to tell us where the rooms are, so we had to walk around the area for a while. We checked in to a non-smoking room but when we entered the room it smelled like smoke! We complained about it immediately but the only solution they gave was an air freshener. The inside of the bed sheets looked like they weren't changed at all, we even saw some dirt and hair on it. The "free" breakfast was disappointing. The area was too small that we had to eat quickly so that the others can eat that were standing.

We would recommend you to stay for the a night, but not more than. The area was great. It was close to the beach, some attractions, and dining places. If you are traveling with kids, we don't recommend staying here, especially if they have asthma, the allergies will act up.

Room Tip: Choose to stay on the 2nd floor! You would probably sleep better.

Please accept my sincere apologies for any difficulties you experienced. The rooms are checked daily and we reassure you the room did not smell like smoke when the room was checked. Unfortunately, since our hotel property is not all non-smoking, sometimes the smoke from the air may get in the non-smoking rooms. We take allergies and asthma very seriously and we have a machine that cleans the room of any odors or bacteria in the air. As far as the sheets that were not clean and the breakfast being disappointed we do apologize, we try our best to exceed our guest expectations. Again, I apologize that you did not have a pleasant experience and wish that you get in contact with the hotel to discuss this matter further.

I went to VA beach this past weekend as a get away for a few days. I went on this vaca to relax and have a stress free environment to only find that this "hotel" was definitely NOT a good get away. This room was filthy, the sheets on the bed were dirty, the bathroom looked like it was not cleaned for years. The TV was outdated and the floors had stains on them. I do not recommend this motel.
