This place was awful. Not very clean. No breakfast other than toast. Really that is what I look for in a hotal. Staff never once cleaned our room or brought clean towels. We had to go to the office & ask for bath tissue paper. I would not tell anyone to stay at this hotel. Sorry but only 1 🌟... More

I didn't get the room I booked. I booked a room with double beds and only got a king. Also, they told us the price is wrong online and they it was suppose to be more. It's outdated and dirty. There were holes in the walls. I won't be staying here again.

No smoke detector, no exhaust fan in bathroom (wires exposed), outlets either didn't work or plugs fell out of sockets. Dead roach on the floor and another killed. Used bar of soap in tub. King suite had one towel only, no washcloths.

This was by far the worst hotel I have ever experienced. The photos on their website were of a different hotel. The hotel we stayed at did not look anything like the hotel I booked online. The sign in front of the hotel still has the name of the former hotel on it and we drove around for a few... More

Hands down the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Filthy rooms - Food crumbs on the bedspreads and under the beds, hair on the supposedly clean sheets, large nasty stains on the bedspreads, filthy doors and walls, extremely worn and dirty carpet. We literally went to Walmart and bought our own sheets and bedspread so we could stand to... More

We tried to stay here. Went and looked at 3 different rooms, all of them were disgusting. There are crumbs and food all over the floor and every single bed had little black curly hairs next to the pillows. The housekeeper was walking and cleaning in her socks, no shoes to be seen. After we told the front desk for... More

AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL This was the worst hotel and I have ever visited (did not stay). What a horrible place for a family to take a family vacation. Bed buds, dirty linens and the room smelled like mildews. The bed sheets were stains and all of this is just from taken pictures the little time we were in the room.... More

There is marshmallow and dust behind the bed in my room. Bring extra pillows because they only have two pillows on the bed for you. The pool is not clear it's a cloudy greenish color. The connection is bad and the Wi-Fi doesn't work.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Magnuson Inn and Suites Gulf Shores is located less than two miles from the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Morgan, and within easy driving distance of Mobile, AL, and Pensacola, FL. Visit The Track, a family recreation center with go-karts, miniature golf, bumper cars and rides designed especially for kids under eight years of age. Cool off on those hot summer days at Waterville USA, boasting more than 20 acres of water slides, wave pools and floating pools. If you prefer beaches to waterparks, the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico are also nearby. The Wharf complex offers great shopping, dining and live entertainment, just a short 3 minute drive from the Magnuson Inn and Suites Gulf Shores.
