“Excellant start to our tour of Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

This was the first of many places we stayed on our recent 3 week visit to Florida from Oxford England in January '13 We stayed at this MOTEL and really enjoyed it. It is NOT a hotel, however the room was large and included a fridge, microwave, plates & cutlery. The reception staff were very helpful and our room was cleaned & bed linen changed regularly. We originally booked to stay 2 nights but stayed for 5 because it was so central for beach, pier 69 etc. We also didn't need a car during this stay as we used the local trolly bus which is excellant value at 2.25 dollers a day - hop on and off all day. We didn't use the pool so can't comment. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in 412 pool view - there are rooms with a sea view but I think costs more.

This place was very gross! We walked into our room and immediately left! Probably the worst I and my family have ever seen. When we drove up to the location it even looked shady. We walk into our room and the beds only come up maybe 2 feet of the ground and were solid as a rock. Then we noticed the light fixtures were just bulbs. The place gave off a dirty vibe and I didn't feel safe there. I would guess my father and i spent a total of 3 mins at the hotel and then went to find another hotel.

I recently went on vacation to Clearwater Beach, Florida and I was on a very strict budget. Let me tell you, if you are the same, I would definitely consider staying at the Magnuson Hotel. Hotel was very close to the beach and very close to all the restaurants, shops, and of course the beach! Also, many other hotels in the area required the main check-in guest to be at least 21 years of age, a requirement that my boyfriend and I did not meet. However, at the Magnuson, you only need to be 18 years of age. Would definitely recommend this budget hotel to everyone.

Check in was very well organized. All staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Excellent location. Dave was the best. It was nice to have breakfast included. We can't wait to return next year! Highly recommend this hotel. We stayed 9 wonderful nights.

Stayed here two weekends ago. It's a very basic hotel, and need of a refurb. It's a shame because with some big money invested into it, this would be a fantastic hotel. It's well situated right on the beach, and although dated our room was spotlessly clean. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. If you are looking for a cheap weekend break on a low budget, I would recommend this place. If you're used to a bit of luxury, then would give it a miss.

Stayed for a couple of nights after a cruise. We were in a bit of distress as we had booked another motel in the area, took one look at it and decided we were not going to stay! i wont name it but there was a furniture sale on in the parking lot, there were a number of people drinking beer and smoking outside. It looked like a hostel for drop-outs! We fled and pitched up at the Man=gnuson. Very helpful, very friendly. It is an older hotel but clean, right on the beach and very reasonable. We had a room with a gulf view. We used the laundry facilities to get our clothes sorted and chilled out. Continental breakfast provided was a bit limited, but for a snack before you went out it was fine. Location, location location. Perfect.

Room Tip: We were on top floor with a gulf view, recommended. Room had two double beds, fridge, microwave and...
