Magnuson Country Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Ishpeming
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Was a good value for the price with the exception of an inoperative bathroom exhaust fan. The wires were disconnected and protruding from the fan cover. It was reported but not corrected by the time we left. We had two rooms connected together and overall the stay was ok. We were there for a funeral so not sure if we could have received a bereavement discount or not. I was going to hassle with it considering we had other things to focus on.

Thanks for the review and kind words. I apologize for the fan issue, we did get it corrected but it could have been done more quickly. I am sorry to hear of your loss and to answer your question yes we can offer a bereavement discount. Thanks for staying with us and I hope you will consider us next time you are in the area.

Overall a good place to stay although if using points it's about double what you'd redeem for a similar quality hotel through other reward programs. The staff was very congenial and helpful. The town of Ishpeming area has very limited lodging options so I was happy to find this hotel to be near the quality of those I normally use when travelling for business or personal reasons. Cindy, the manager, is personable, professional, and very helpful. The housekeeping staff members are prompt and thorough in providing a clean and comfortable place to stay.

The rooms were very clean and well-maintained, there is a pool and sauna area, as well, which I didn't have a chance to use, but it looked nice. Check in was very easy, and the lobby looks like it was well-maintained, also. I definitely liked the coupons I received, upon check in, for nearby local businesses (gym, tanning, restaurants and bars). This hotel is very close to everything I needed. I would stay here again, if I ever have training at nearby Bell Hospital.

Rates were reasonable, just wish the rooms had a fridge in it. Sofa sleeper definitely needed to be upgraded! (we switched rooms) Staff was very accommodating in all requests. Going next door to the Country Grill for breakfast was not a problem. Food was amazing! Would stay here again.

This hotel has gone down from the last time I stayed here. The entire hotel is dated and could use a facelift. The wifi is non-existent. Using my 3G is faster, sadly... It isn't there fault no 4g, but without it, wifi is for sure expected. I can't hold a connection to their signal at all! The hair dryer is old and blows lukewarm air. The exhaust fan is noisy in bathroom. Just everything about it feels old... Too bad. This used to be our favorite place to stay years ago.

Thank you for the review and I apologize your stay was disappointing. You will be glad to know we have recently upgraded our WIFI equipment and now have strong signals throughout the whole property. We also are planning a property renovation in the near future which will give us a nice facelift as well. RL

This was a clean, quiet and safe place to stay. However, the website is misleading. It lists complementary breakfast as one of its amenities. At check-in, you are given vouchers for the restaurant next door. When you go there for breakfast, you are given the choice of complementary breakfast of dry cereal and fruit/ toast and fruit or you can take $3 off any menu item. Either way, you would be leaving a tip for the waitress so it's not really complementary, is it? Only other issues we had were poor internet service and inconsistent water temp in the shower. Otherwise, it was a pleasant stay.

This hotel looks good on the outside, but is in poor repair. Windows leak, no sound insulation very loud. reserved a king bed and received 2 doubles on check in and no other rooms available. wanted to charge me for the room if i went to another hotel unless they could resell it even though it was there mistake on not reserving the right room.

Thank you for the review and I apologize for the room mix up. I have spoken to my staff and instructed them on how to better handle a situation such as this if it ever were to happen again in the future.

In regards to the hotel we are in the planning stages of a major upgrade which should give our property a nice facelift.
