Magnuson Hotel Norfolk Airport
Ranked #92 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

There's so many terrible things I could say about this place! Our room smelled awful to the point I had to go to Walgreens and spend $15 on Febreze products! Our AC didn't work and there was a huge bug crawling on the wall so we asked to switch to another room, they gave us a different room and it was so hot that we had to turn on the AC and leave for several hours till the room cooled. I ended up having to Lysol and febreze that room also. We felt very unsafe in this hotel. It's too far from the beach, the pool was a creepy place to be. Just a nightmare all around! Stayed here to save a few dollars...never again! Will be going back to VB Monday and we are staying in an Ocean front Hotel far from the Magnuson!!!

Stayed: July 2013, travelled with family

I am so sorry to hear that your experience was so terrible. We strive our best to accommodate our guest and make sure they are happy and comfortable. I am not sure what the smell was in your room. Our housekeeping supervisor inspects all rooms thoroughly. We hope that you would give us a call as soon as possible to discuss this matter further.

I recently visited the hotel and had a wonderful experience. This hotel came w/ a pool, complimentary breakfast and you could even take yoga classes w/o having to leave the hotel. It was located close to the interstate with really nice restaurants close in the area. It's close the mall and shopping center which really came in handy. The front desk people are helpful and if you need any help finding activities to get into they have a stand with activity pamphlets that let you know what's going on in the area (bonus). I've stayed in some hotels and it kind felt like you were on your own but this is not the case. They really go out their way to make sure you have a well rounded experience. The cozy feel of the rooms made me feel right at home. I really loved where it was located. I will visit again.

The service is great, staff is very friendly and helpful. The prices are very reasonable, especially since it's "tourist season". I'm from the area and remember this place from before, and the upgrades and new owners are wonderful.
This is my second stay here, and it definitely won't be my last!!

I stayed here a couple years ago and loved it so much I came back! Now, the entire hotel has been renovated and the rooms look better than before. The room I stayed in looked like it was built yesterday! The staff is friendly, the prices are great considering you are right in the middle of everything, and my favorite part is the fitness classes! I HAVE to work out when I travel and this is the ONLY hotel I've been to that offers Zumba, Yoga, etc. I highly recommend The Magnuson Hotel to anyone travelling to Virginia Beach.

Simple but fun place, good quality for the price. Location is very convenient and ample parking is available. Rooms are big, comfortable, and generally clean. Walking distance from many good eating places. I'd definitely stay here again!
