Magnuson Hotel Clearwater Central
Ranked #57 of 98 Hotels in Clearwater
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights, when we came to visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The room was very clean, but the bedspreads and sheets were pretty old and not very appealing.
The rooms are not sound proof - you can hear people in the walkway and in the pool.
The breakfast was adequate, but the breakfast room was very crowded. We had to sit out in the lobby.

Reviewed 28 April 2014

We were somewhat alarmed at the strong mildew smell in the office at time of checkin but were quickly cheered by the very friendly and helpful front desk clerk. Our assigned room was clean and comfortable. A clogged sink drain was taken care of in good time and with cheerful courtesy. The breakfast included juice, cereals, bananas, yogurt, waffles, danish and bagels. Table space was limited but we carried ours out to the pool area tables or our room. Beds were clean and comfortable and we appreciated having an all tiled floor covering; more motels should eliminate carpet and go with tile, especially those having swimming pools!
We enjoyed our stay here and daytripped to beaches from Clearwater to Sarasota.

We arrived in Clearwater a day too early to check into a beach condo so we stayed here one night. Building and room was a bit dated but was clean and adequate. Rooms were a bit noisy but didn't keep us awake. Staff was very friendly. Continental breakfast was good and had a nice variety of items to choose from. Good value for the money.

Room was well equipped and clean, nothing fancy.
Staff were helpful although probably a bit overworked. The breakfast room was very small and got busy no matter what time you went.
The pool was very clean and always being worked on to keep the standard up.
Overall for the price a great value hotel.
I woul recommend Lenny's next door for breakfast.

Staff was wonderful and went out of their way to help. Room was clean and large had a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Excellent value for the price. Pool was heated and clean. Bed was so so and you could hear people in room next to you. The breakfast room was very nice and the staff kept very clean.
