This was my second time staying at the Magnuson and will stay again not only for the exceptional customer service but for the location, friendliness of the staff and all over value of the room. They were able to accommodate an early check-in and upgraded our room at no extra charge (spacious room with kitchen and a beautiful view of...

The location is great, the pool was clean, the pictures must have been taken long ago because it's pretty run down at this time, toilet didn't flush unless held down, bathroom fan was torn apart and rusted out, elevator is very dirty and smells really bad, breakfast consists of Little Debbies and watered-down juice. I will not stay here again.

Despite a good location and nice, helpful staff, the condition of this hotel was a disappointment. The rooms are pretty much outdoor balcony accessed, motel style, which means there's noise as your neighbours door slams shut. All the metal work outside is rusty and has been painted over. The elevator smells like an engineers workshop, and the standard of the...

We are a retired couple who wanted to see the sights in Clearwatters, St Petersburg and north in Dunedin and Tarpon Springs. We booked the Magnuson in Clearwater because it was steps away from the Trolley stop. The Trolley ran every half hour, very inexpensive especially for seniors, and took us all the way to Pass a Grille, St Petersburg,...

If your looking for a vacation to enjoy warm sunny weather and beautiful views....this a perfect place to stay! It is right in heart of everything you don't need a car parking is horrible and costly.

This may not be the nicest hotel but the staff is great and it has a great location. Multiple places to eat within close vicinity. Right on the beach and very clean. It was easy to wake up and go to the beach then come back to get comfortable.

This is a 1960s hotel that they are trying to keep reasonably updated. The location is great. Right across from the beach and next to Opal Sands. It is fine for the money spent, but the decor is no particular style 1980s and uncoordinated. The doors entering the rooms don't fit well into the archway. Stair railings are rusted. I...

First off, the location is pretty good. We did not have a sea-facing room, but it's within walking distance to the beach and great places to eat right outside (Check out the Postoffice next doors!). That being said, parking is not included and super strict! The rooms are quaint for sure, but weirdly connected to each other through only a...
