First confusion was GPS maps it to Magnuson Hotel off I35, the signs say it is Deluxe Inn (still don't know for sure which it really is). It is just minutes from the Baylor campus, making the location excellent. The room was ok...sheets felt musty and were stained. I asked for and received clean sheets. The faucet in the sink was almost ready to fall off. The swimming pool water was scary green but the manager said it was treated and safe. The bed was moderately comfortable, on the harder side. I believe this motel is frequently used by construction workers who were outside a lot at night smoking and hanging out at the pool They were nice, no problem, just an observation.
On the other hand, our staff was extremely nice & helpful. I had to call to find the location since it didn't match the GPS. The management had the breakfast laid out nicely and was helpful in preparations. They were the best part of this motel experience.
