So, I have nothing but amazing things to say about the check in clerk, Bailey. After 12 hours of packing up 2 houses to move downstate, I'm informed that they are unable to rent to anyone from Ishpeming. I've called Marquette County home for 17 years and Ishpeming home for 11. After a tiring day, all we wanted was a... More

As other have mentioned, the hotel is a bit dated. But bang for the buck? Worth it. Rooms and hallway were clean. Indoor pool area was HOT like a sauna but opening a window fixed that right up. Free wi fi is bonus! Breakfast is cold cereal Danish type continental but no wait. Fridge in our room was helpful but... More

Room was spacious but very outdated. Lamps had burned out bulbs. Some outlets didn't work. They did include a free breakfast at the restaurant next door which was nice. Staff was friendly and did accommodate a late check in.

This Hotel provided a good value and a nice, clean and fairly quiet environment. We noted there was a pool and Hot tub, but did not utilize. We did walk next door to the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast. This was our last night in the U.P. and planned to stop at Agate and Bond Falls the next day,... More

This was a nice, decent hotel for the price. We were moving our daughter up to NMU in Marquette and didn't want to pay the prices the local Marquette hotels were offering for that weekend. We found the Magnuson to be clean, and comfortable.

We stayed on 2 separate occasions in July 2016. The room was satisfactory - reasonably clean and comfortable. The rooms were quiet and nice, but they are somewhat dated and in need of an upgrade - especially the bath fixtures. The first stay was in a King room, which was better than the double beds the second stay. The amenities... More

My room was well maintained and comfortable. The Marquette area market is a bit higher than much of the UP so the price was in-line for the area. The complimentary breakfast at the restaurant adjacent to the hotel is far superior to the normal buffet style.

This was easily the best place we stayed. It's pet friendly. It has a free breakfast at the restaurant on the side. It has a pool. It's easily accessible being on a main highway. The staff was very friendly. Very good bathroom.

Nothing elegant, but basic small town hotel that was clean and comfy. Nice pool and hot tub. Not a lobby that you would lounge around in, as it is small and meant for registration, but that's about it. The free breakfast is a coupon for the restaurant right next door, where you can choose from four varied hot selections.....a large... More
