The front desk is always staffed with helpful people and I've attended several conferences here. Everything is neat and in order and the grounds are beautiful esp. in the spring when the azaleas are blooming

We landed at this hotel because it was getting late and we needed a place for the night, and it was close by. We were delightfully surprised at the grounds and room. The room was furnished well, clean, and the breakfast was awesome!

Magnuson Hotel is located in a convenient location, and is in a nice, relaxing area. UTT is close, restaurants are nearby, as well as shopping areas. It's not the newest and fanciest, but I, and other friends or relatives, have found it to be neat, clean, and comfortable for our needs. The staff has always been very friendly, nice, and...

I probably have stayed in most of the "new" brand named hotels in the area but for the last couple of years I have been coming back to the Magnuson because of it's central location, comfortable rooms, great service and overall bang for my bucks.

What a great location, professionally ran and super clean. The staff were extremely helpful, kind and made sure our stay was exactly what we wanted. The breakfast we had was delicious, the pool was outstanding, the accessibility to local venues was easy.

The staff and manager will welcome you and promptly address your requests. Our room was clean and appropriate for the visit. I loved the charm that negative reviewers call dated. If you want to spend 250 a night for a brand new, "efficient" hotel then do that and suffer impersonal treatment and excuses about short staff issues. The Magnuson is...

I'm not sure why it's called the "Grand Hotel" - it's actually just an average, dated motel. We stayed here based on the beautiful photos on their website, and it's disappointing to see in person. All rooms are exterior-facing. It's noisy - you can hear traffic outside, conversations in the room next door, and the fluorescent lights buzzing. The whole...
