The staff was excellent. There were major issues in our room: Coffee Pot, Alarm clock, and Phone didn't work at all and the air conditioner wasn't cooling the room as it should but when I spoke to the front desk attendant she immediately changed our room. The second one was excellent. No issues. Quiet place to stay. Convenient to Pamlico River.
I didn't care for the fact that there was no elevator and were booked on the second floor.
I was looking for an inexpensive room near the New Bern/Vanceboro area where my girlfriend and I could have a quiet Valentine's Day getaway, and the Magnuson was perfect. The room was nice and clean, nobody bothered us, and they actually still allow smoking in certain rooms (which was a plus considering the cold weather.) It's definitely not a 5-star resort, but it's not a shady flophouse either. I would not have a problem bringing children there, but we definitely felt that this was a great place for grown people who don't need chocolates on their pillows to cut loose and have a good time without being judged or frowned upon.
