Price, cleanliness, comfort Difficult to access from the hwy.
My stayed at the Magnuson Hotel Clearwater Central was excellent. The room was very clean and spacious. The best part for me was the pool area. It was really relaxing; I enjoyed swimming in the pool and laying down on the chairs while sun was shinning. The personnel was really corteous and professional at all time.
I would like my money back, I didn't get any rest, whole reason why I purchased the hotel in the first place. I was supposed to get a callback from the manager, never did. Contacted kayak as well to see if they can speak with them representative was very rude. From the bed to the TV not working properly to the noisy people outside.
Well my second day there we left bright and early for the beach. Once we arrived back to our room, we noticed housekeeping had came. Great! Then we went to plus our phones up to charge. OUR CHARGERS WERE GONE! The next morning i went straight to the front desk. The lady said she would talk to the supervisor. At this time, i let her know the fridge wasnt staying cool. She said maintenance would be out to fix it. I never heard anything back. So every morning after that i went to the front desk to ask about charger. She eventually told me, she doesnt see any of her people stealing and brushed it off. Needless to say we have to buy new chargers because someone stole ours. And maintenance didnt come for the fridge until 2 hours before our checkout.
Good price. Pets stay free. Good pet area out back. Welcoming feel for travelers with pets (cats & dogs welcome). Busy commercial area. Very basic hotel so if you don't have a pet you may be able to find one a bit more comfortable for the price.
Very easy to get to everything I wasn't but if you had a second floor room you had to use the stairs..
Stayed one night to visit my daughters college in St. Petersburg.
Claimed it was in a good location for the beach...It is only in a good location to get on the highway and drive away
Wi-Fi access, free breakfast and also a good diner next door. Staff was very helpful. Pool was very nice. A good value, honestly. Could use some updating: ie, painting and fixtures, bathroom cabinets. Pillows were very flat, obviously rather old and used.
I liked that the room met my needs and the pool was right in front of my door. I think the hotel is good. However, maybe you can update some of the furniture in the lobby and add an accent wall or modern decor to help boost up a more luxurious feel? Especially since you are competing with other hotels in the strip. You don't want to look like the "cheap one" . Keep your affordable prices and good house keeping and just do a few cosmetic upgrades. Its very inexpensive and i think it would be more visually attractive. You will get more customers as well because they will feel like they are walking into a more high end hotel. Be careful with the pool lock (it doesn't really lock, i think its broken) that might be a liability in case a child is ever out late at night and wants to sneak in the pool. Also keep all pool toys in a safe place and organized.
No microwave in roon, some staff were rude
OK Value & next to IHOP & Walmart Old, worn, & smelly. Was itching in my bed. Not sure if it was mosquito bites, or otherwise, but I was in town for 4 more nights and was never again bit by mosquitoes, so IDK. Smelled funky, especially A/C.
The location is good. It's not far from places to eat and approxomately 20 minutes from the airport, with no traffic. The linens were clean. Stained, but clean. When I got to the hotel to check in, the lobby was locked (it was 7:30 PM), there was no buzzer to get anyone's attention. When we picked ho the phone that was next to the door it rang to a voicemail, no one came to let us check in for at least 10 mins. I would have left if they didn't have my deposit. The description said there was a kitchen. My "kitchen" was a mini-fridge, a microwave, and a toaster. The fridge had an expired soda in it, the a/c unit was plugged into a regular surge protector that was stretched across our room and plugged in Behind the tv, it also Had to be controlled through the remote control that I didn't find until 5 hours after I got there. There was a Black Ice pine tree Car air-freshener on my light fixture, stains On the mattress pad (I stripped the bed in the morning to get fresh linens & saw the stained pad), and you could tell that the most "cleaning" that had been done was a quick wipe-down. There was dirt on the vanity & in the bathroom.
Clean. Friendly staffs.
The manager helped us locate a room that we felt was right for us, no questions asked. This was our second stay here and wont be our last. Clean beds clean rooms clean bathrooms comfy beds great breakfast Tv needed channels to be reset
That they had wasps nest near the door
Easy access to Busch Gardens. Located in an area with lots of restaurants and gas stations. Wal Mart right up the road. Aldi's close by. Rooms were clean and everyone we came across was very friendly. This is NOT a Hilton by far BUT it was also not a flea bag motel. Breakfast items could have had more to choose from. Only 1 waffle maker.
It was functional. Shower drain clogged easily, water collected in the bath during shower. AC is positioned to goes right across the bed, making it somewhat uncomfortable. Wifi connection was impossible from my room, as the signal kept dropping out. All things that can be worked around or ignored, not a huge deal. My only real grievance is the door. The seal along the bottom was falling off, leaving a gap for bugs to get in.
Staff was awesome! Pool was super clean and beautiful landscapes. Breakfast was great and area always spotless. Front desk gave us an upgrade to a room with fridge and microwave without charging and a room with a pool view! Toilet didn't always flush and shower head was broken but we were able to manage. And a few bugs but it is Florida.
Bed, smell, noise
good value the safe is nice but costs extra. didn't see that sign till i was checking out
Price Poor breakfast :(
It's not a top of the line place-I have stayed in a lot worse for more cost... it wasn't the cleanest, but it was clean (except that the coffee maker had someone else's coffee / coffee grinds left inside from previous occupant) Smell of chemicals was strong-on elevator; but didn't smell in room... it's not a 5 star hotel; but it's also not a five star price!!!
Front desk attendant told us we could have paid less by booking straight through them. Everything else. Smelly, dirty, older, run down, cigarette burns in the sheets, husband bit up by bed bugs, We paid $130 for a room that should have cost $30, MAYBE $40. Very disappointed, will never stay at a Super 8 again.
It was close to the airport and restaurants The sheets and bathroom were very dirty. The bathroom floors had hair everywhere. The tub/shower was dirty. I cleaned the bathroom myself. It was gross!
Easy location to airport. (PIE) Many shady characters around. We were awakened early in the morning by someone screaming "Help me!" in the hallway on 3rd floor... and then arguing and more yelling. Ruined our trip.
Convenient location. Older. But, they are renovating.
Lots of cockroaches running around the main floor room. No pillow protectors on the pillows. Very dissappointing
When we arrived to check in, Owner was friendly and went above and beyond our expectations to also help us find a cab to the venue we were going to be attending that evening, The room was very clean for the age of the hotel, We will return when in town.

The location was great. Close to beach and downtown for a great price. Also the room was big enough for our family of 5. The heated pool was great as well. The hot tub was not working
Nothing but the location. Staff so rude. They changed my room and charged me extra money. The breakfast was just coffee and cinnamon rolls. The room was so dirty. Restroom smells stinky. Carpet so dirty and my feet turned black from walking inside the room. NOT RECOMMENDED at all.
The staff was very orderly and nice. They kept us stocked in clean towels. Everything was fine given our budget.
Close to spring training . The pool was very nice A little hard to communicate. Poor shower head. Door didn't lock sometimes. Need to empty outdoor trash can more often. Hot tub was in total disrepair.
Good location. Close to food, gas, grocery stores. AC barely worked, no coffee pot in room. Pillow cases were stained. There was grease of some sort all over night stand and remote control. Shower was weak.
clean, comfortable. was able to extend stay at discount price. Refrigerator didn't work
location Its really a motel, not a hotel...

Costumer service was great very quite and make you feel home No just price kinda high
The older guy at the front desk was impatient rude but he did help after he put his foot down
I like the price I managed to get the room for and the fact that it was pet friendly. The location wasn't too bad either since it wasn't that far from some things. The tile floor in my room was dirty. It looked clean but when you walk across it barefoot, by the time you got to the other side of your room, your feet were black. Some of the things need to be updated/replaced. The silver plate around the light fixture in the bathroom was rusted, there is no main light, (although there is a switch that controls absolutely nothing) there are only two lamps (on the other end of the room) so if you get there at night, you better have a flashlight or something. I booked a non-smoking room and got one, it did not smell like smoke at all but my neighbor apparently smoked and when they lit up, I could smell it in my room; that kind of made it pointless to book a non-smoking room.
The price was very reasonable. The location was perfect for my needs. It was very basic, but met my needs just fine. I'd stay there again. The room was kind of drab and could use updating.
Location , that's it. Office manager would not honour my rate, charged me more.Phone did not work,water was shutoff one day.I was there for 4 nights, was not CLEANED ONCE! No WiFi, Dirty floors, towels were like rags, one small bar of soap.Police were on property twice during my stay.I can honestly say this was the worse motel I have ever stayed at.I only stayed due to close proximity to blue jays spring training. A young couple who had a reservation had their room given away too.I saw them trying to book another motel. Terrible service, terrible room and I did not feel safe here. Do not stay here, its not worth the low price!
was not clean
It was easy access to highway and main roads. The bed was very comfortable, although the box spring looked very dirty. Dust ruffles help keep box clean. Usually in the budget hotels beds are awful. I have very bad allergies and asthme. The cleaners you use have a lingering smell which is a big irritant. Possibly go with a fragrance free cleaner.
The only positive is that is was right down the road from Lowry park zoo.. When I saw the negative comments on this motel I thought people were being picky. well, they under played how bad it was. 1st I was nearly in tears from the obnoxious amounts of cleaners I smelled when I first walked in, 2nd I killed 4 roaches, finally I felt like I was going to fall through the shower floor because the floor of the tub was cracked and broken and their method of fixing it was gluing the bath mat down. The only reason I even stayed here for the full night was do to the fact that someone had been shot and murdered and 3 injured at a hookah lounge just a few blocks from this motel and hadn't been caught yet.. To conclude DONT DO IT!!
