We stayed here for 2 nights, made the mistake of booking online before seeing the hotel. I know it's an old hotel, which I'm fine with...but dirty & smelly are not ok! The rooms, elevator & stairs all had a terrible musty odor & were not well cleaned or maintained. You have to pay $15/day for parking pass & the...

We visit Clearwater beach at least once a year, sometimes twice. This trip was last minute so our hotel choices were limited. It was dirty and dated. Our room was at the end of a dark hallway. I had to ask the front desk to please change the lightbulb in the hallway as it was out and we couldn't see...

The door keys had to be reprogrammed every day The room and furniture was very dated The WiFi never worked and the hotel kept saying your the only one having this problem, but when we spoke to other guest they said it did not work either.

Excellent location but the hotel is a bit tired and worn. Our room was clean, neat and spacious. Breakfast was basic to an extreme. The front desk was friendly. They charged for parking because we booked the reservation online.

Not sure what rooms these others had with all the problems. We stayed pool view 3rd floor for 8 nights this past week and it was clean and an awesome view of pool and ocean. Kathy was always very helpful along with the maintenance guys they were everywhere and also very helpful. It was very quiet and we heard no...

I arrived in Clearwater with no idea where I would stay. I had an app called hotels tonight and I saw the Magnuson on it, so I stopped. Turned out to be the wrong location, but I stayed anyway. Yes, this is an older facility. Yes, the elevator could use some elbow grease. But, my room was clean, I had...

There was more: 1) The door handle was broken. 2) no suitcase stand 3) no tissues 4) faulty A/C 5) the room smelled bad 6) no desk or chair for a computer 7) lame breakfast...

The room and hotel in general was pretty outdated, but the staff, price, and environment made it very enjoyable. Never had problems with cleanliness, and the beach is literally right across the street from the hotel. The hotel is by everything, so walking is no problem. There is a free (tip only) taxi service called Florida Free Rides! They take...
