Knoxville, Tennessee

I stress out when trying to find hotels that I can afford. I was apprehensive (as usual) until I arrived and saw the room and the grounds. The room was very clean, the grounds were clean and kept, the pool and pool area were clean and it was just a cheerful, colorful place. The staff was great and always helpful...

James, we have recently renovated, so it's concerning to read all this. There is another Magnuson Hotel here in Clearwater that your review might be meant for. We take special care in maintaining our rooms, so you should never find writing on headboards or anything of the sort here. Next time you're looking for a place to stay here in...

Annie, this certainly doesn't sound like us, so I apologize if your experience was anything but excellent. We've actually recently renovated and have heard nothing but great things about the space and the wi-fi connectivity. That being said, we're always grateful for feedback, so if you have any additional context to give, don't hesitate to reach out.

Our room was very nice and clean with wood floors and a nice bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The free breakfast was the standard fare of waffles, cereal, fruit - very nice. Friendly staff. The A/C was noisy when it turned on. It is a bit tricky to get to with Highway 19 raised by pass right by it. The...

We had a awesome time staying here. We got a awesome rate for our rooms. The breakfast was good and the pool area was awesome. I would recommend to stay here. Only 15 minutes to get to the beach if the traffic isn't bad. All the staff was very friendly.

My family and I (2 adults & 3 children) stayed here for two nights in April 2017. The room was clean and plenty big enough for a short stay. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The pool is a good size and heated which was open until 11pm, which the children loved. The hotel was being used by...

The reviews are deceiving for this hotel! Our room was bare-bones. The room was big enough but empty--no table or chairs to sit at or relax on. Our neighbors kept us up most of the night with bass music beating all night and men and women talking outside our door until 3:00 in the morning. This is definitely not a...

We stayed here just one night. The pluses would be that the lobby area is nice and the pool looked nice. Several people were using the pool. They are also right next to Lenny's restaurant which we love. The minus would be that the rooms are just ok and it can get fairly noisy at night because all the rooms...
