If you're looking for a 5-star hotel, the Magnuson is not it. HOWEVER, we found the rates to be much lower than nearby hotels, and the staff is amazing. Garry, Joel, Joey and others will take a personal interest in you and your stay, doing all they can to make it the best. Also, the Magnuson is next door to...

I am a 4th Grade Teacher who came from a small town from Immokalee with 29 students. The service from every employee was absolutely amazing, the rooms were spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast was amazing. We visit St. Augustine every year and always go to this hotel because they are so reliable and take care of anything we might...

Located on a tidal river...sit on the raised patio, surrounded by flowers, and watch eagles, herons, dolphins, or the sun setting over the water. Train line built by Henry Flagler, industrialist who developed Florida coast, offers rare close-up views of occasional trains - kids and train buffs run to watch. Neighborhood across the street includes many architectural styles, from large...

Although the Magnuson Hotel was undergoing some renovations the staff made you feel like you were special to them. The room was great. We were on the back side of the hotel and there were train tracks. OMG I though because I just knew the train would keep me up. That was not the case. It was rather exciting. My...

We stayed at the Magnuson over the weekend for a local festival. Price was a bit high for this type of hotel, however this is what you get when you come during a busy time. Pros: - The owners were there serving breakfast. They are a wonderful husband/wife couple who are obviously putting in a lot of investment, time, and...

While I would call it a budget hotel it was clean and comfortable and newly renovated(some areas were still being renovated). They had 24 check in which was great as we didn't arrive until 11.30pm. There was free parking and while I would describe it as being just outside the old town it was certainly possible to walk from it...

Thank you for your review and we are convinced that, when the hotel is totally renovated, we have a great place for our future guest. As I do not know which room you stayed in, I can guarantee that all our AC units are replaced as we speak. We are looking forward to welcome you again in the future...

Liked the fridge in the room, the room was quite clean, the view is very beautiful but windows were dirty as hell. :) Also didn't like the disposable tableware at the breakfast. The price was very high for this level of the hotel.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. After hurricane Matthew, we are going through a 100% renovation. The reason for the window being cloudy is that air got in between the double windows. In the last stage of our renovation, all the windows will be replaced, however, we apologize for not explaining this to you upon your arrival. At all...

Between the construction in the motel and the train that runs behind it...oh and when the A/C comes on on it sounds like a plane taking off...it was fine. On the plus side, you don't spend a lot of time in the room when you visit St. Augustine. Another plus side it was $80 a night. Wouldn't do it again...
