We stayed here in November of 2016. The hotel is kind of a time machine out of the 1970s in some way. The room was fine except there was a great deal of traffic in and out of the parking lot at odd hours of the night, where it seemed like the same old crappy car was coming and going...

We did smell a lot of smoke downstairs, but upstairs the rooms smelled fine. The beds were actually nice. Nicer then I would have assumed for the look of the place from the outside. This is just a no frills hotel. But we felt safe, bed was clean. So overall it wsa exactly what we expected for what we paid....

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your stay. It valuable for us to know how a customer feels after being with us. Currently we are a nonsmoking facility and with this policy now in effect the future of the smoke smell should be non-existent. We are glad you stayed with us at the Magnuson Grand...

Family of 4. (A 20 year old young adult with physical disabilities & a 4 year old). We stayed 2 nights. We got a handicap room. It was sufficient. Nothing too spectacular, but the room smelled clean. Signs in the room state that if anyone smokes in there, they will be subject to get fined $200. Was nice to see...

What a strange place... everything from pot filled corridors with public access doors cracked open in 20 degrees, to a sign that "Columbus Police - special forces" were on-site in the daytime, but removed after 5 pm???? What the what? Anyway, the staff are awesome, the place is clean and kept. The clientele are 50/50 --- some seem very sketchy...

Thank you for your positive feedback on the hotel's cleanliness and staff. We are renovating currently in the lobby and signs are put out of place due to the desk renovations. I am sorry for the confusion when security is present in the evening hours at our hotel. We have changed brands recently and currently working on customer satisfaction, your...

It was super cheap and as well-maintained as you would expect for the condition of the neighborhood. The staff tried really hard to clean well but sometimes the place just needs a remodel. It was such a bad, crime-ridden neighborhood I can't imagine investing in the location would ever be able to be recouped by the business.

Our room had crumbs on the floor, dust and greasy fingerprints on the refrigerator, dust and hair in the bathroom, etc. The lock on the outer door was "stuck". It took several tries each time to get back into the hotel. Much in the hotel needs updated and cleaned. Staff at the pool were not friendly nor helpful. People down...

You share the pool with whomever they rent it to for lessons which is ridiculous. The breakfast in one word disgusting and the man running...

Our room had food in the drawers and all over the floors. The tv cabinet had something sticky all over it. I washed my face and grabbed a folded up towel and there was toothpaste and mouthwash all over it. Pubic hair in the tub and walls, dust and water spots all over the toilet, shelf and sink.

A bit old but clean and easy on and off the Interstate. Stayed 3 days and did not regret it. Not much for Breakfast but they are trying hard to please their guests. A bit run down but just what we needed. Great Beds and nice room. A good place to stay at a reasonable rate.
