Magnuson Hotel Creston

Reviewed 30 May 2014

Extremely pleased. Good service, good rates, and fantastic staff. We were there on a motorcycle and they were glad to have use unlike some places. They are actually anxious to have more motorcycles and group come there. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Motel is close to all amenities. A great place to stay. I'll be back and I'll recommend it to others.

Room Tip: I have stayed at the front and in the middle and have found both to be equal.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Magnuson,Sandra. We are always happy to see all the bikers enjoying the world famous Selkirk Loop. We would very much like to see the Magnuson become a preferred stop for the many bike tours throughout the biking season. Our waterscape and BBQ area is now finished for you to relax and enjoy on your next stay.

Recently stayed at the Magnuson and had my expectation met.

This is NOT a Four Seasons property, so do not expect the amenities that you would of a 5 star calibre hotel.
The Magnuson is your typical old school independent "motel", however it has recently been renovated. The room decor was bland, but comfortable, clean and fairly spacious. The renovations included new laminate flooring, paint and full bathroom redo. The bath tub was absolutely huge and was a treat to soak in after a day of playing baseball.

This isn't usually the type of place I'd stay, but due to the fact that the one major hotel chain in Creston was booked solid, I gave it a shot.

The only issue I had was the fact that the "free wifi" signal didn't reach the room I was located in.

If you are in the area, and are looking for a place to lay your head, check out the Magnuson.

Thank you for the review Mark. We have addressed the WiFi issues by removing the three old modems and installing five new higher powered modems. We have also installed Shaw's new Shaw Go WiFi for existing Shaw customers. We feel this should give us perfect coverage throughout the 51 rooms. Thank you for giving us a shot and we hope to see you again.

The Magnuson Hotel used to be called the Hacienda Inn. I called the hotel to book and inquire about the rooms and the front desk gentleman went way above and beyond to check two rooms for me and call me back twice. I travel with my family at least three times a year into the States and have
never had such excellent, kind service. The Hotel is completely renovated as of 2013 and the rooms have new wood floors, beds, paint, bathrooms. The hotel also serves a free breakfast starting at 7:00 am which is a bonus. Can't say enough about the service at this hotel.

I Will definitely stay there again. The clean, newly renovated bathroom, comfortable bed and great staff made my stay most pleasant. I slept well and enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. I would recommend this hotel. I had a wonderful supper at The Thai Restaurant in The Magnuson Hotel, the food was fresh and flavourful.

Thank you for your review and kind words. The complimentary continental breakfast has been a big hit. We see it getting better as the local fruit comes to harvest. Hope to see you again the next time you visit Creston.

I was very pleased at the service we received at the magnuson! Since the renos were done everything is great in the rooms!! A little squeak in the bed but still slept very well! The service was great as well they have a decent breakfast included with the room and there was coffee, tea and a fridge! Great since we had our baby with us! I would recommend staying here for anyone visiting the creston area!

The management was very helpful. We had the Thai food for supper. (it was great). Nice to have a continental breakfast. The room had some dirt stuck on the floor..seemed gummy... there was no shampoo or conditioner in the room and only one paper coffee cup... not 2. We found it very quiet and we slept well.

Thank you for your review. This was an epic fail on our part. The staff at the Magnuson Hotel Creston have now incorporated a pre-checkin room inspection. We don't want to see this kind of preventable issue again. We hope to make this up to you on your next getaway to Creston.

A very nice hotel. Restaurant has good food and it is close to grocery store and A&W if needed. Very clean, with new hardwood flooring and tile throughout. Would love to go back again when the weather warms up and enjoy the outdoor pool. Overall a very good deal for the price.

Thank you for taking the time to review us and help fellow travelers find value and comfort. Our guest have all been very impressed with the new hardwood and tile throughout the 51 rooms. Most agree with you on the location being ideal as well being right beside the shopping mall. When you return we will have our new 'waterscape' and BBQ area complete. This new area will have a place for old and young alike, to put your feet in the cool stream or listen to the waterfall as dad cooks up some yummy burgers.
