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
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.
That they had wasps nest near the door
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.
location was nice hotel staff was nice free wifi was nice hallways to rooms smelled like cigarettes and wine coolers pillow cases had the previous persons hair on them sink in bathroom had hair left in it from shaving by the previous person refrigerator smelled a little moldy and had a sheet of ice on the inside of it that stunk.
the rooms were nice parking area in need of repair, halls little dirty
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!!
Location was great, clean, comfortable and the staff was great Nothing
The people running the property were amazing, the location being so close to everything was perfect and the heated pool wasn't bad... hands down best part was the squirrel living on the property! Was a little outdated and could have been a bit cleaner, just being picky.
The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. Saw bugs in the bathroom which was a bit dirty and outdated.
nice & clean, staff great. all you need, great $$ nothing @ all.
Loved kitchenette. Walking distance to everything. Dock gathering area. Rooftop for fireworks watching. People were great. Heated pool. N/a
Location, beautiful view, we even saw dolphins wile sitting in our back yard. Very confertable felt more like being at the cottage. Very central close to every thing minutes from the beach. Some updating needed
Location. One block to the beach. Cool little throwback hotel. Well taken care of. Nice swimming pool The Shower was horrible. Needs a new tub and a new shower head. The AC doesn't really cool the room all that much.
Clean, simple access to room. Mom n Pop that is cared for and fun. Grat vibe!
Staff was great. Room was awesome as was location of property. Time spent was all too short. Haha
Staff was very accommodating and friendly no
When I left Bugs, cockroaches! Bed bugs that I was told are termites
The hotel room was updated. The hotel staff was nice and friendly We were not aware of the party that was being held the night that we checked in. There was kids running up and down the halls all day.
They've made improvements on the looks Barking dog next door

The location & pool, that is all. The hotel was filthy and run down. Multiple roaches in our room, crawling on our clothes. Cracked walls with peeling paint. Dirty rag on the floor. Garbage on the ground. Entrance door that slams so hard it would break fingers.
It was close to our final destination. Had a nice pool. The grounds had some trash. I was expecting the rooms to be in better condition.
Location The room was disgusting. Broken lamp shades, broken light fixtures, damp room, sand all over the floor
Nice pool Manager is not willing to work with you, and treated me as a post 911 suspect.
Loved the beach location. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. Strictly a beach, old Florida type room ,no frills. Loved that there was no smoking on the property. Walls were thin and you could hear your neighbor.
Beach and ocean is beautiful Hotel need serious updating. I think the room were ok clean. But difficult to tell. Manager and front desk no professionalism.seems occupied when checking us in. Manager was rude to several guests. We were sitting on the lawn in front of our room watching the ocean and chatting , sprinklers turned on at 9:15pm and soaked every thing. We tried to reach staff of hotel, no one was available by phone or in person. Parking was very limited. We had guest trying to visit, no extra parking anywhere close to hotel. Will not return.
Location and beach were great. Plenty of hot water. Outdated and in disrepair. Room was clean, although furnishings were old and worn. "Resort" did NOT appear as in pictures! The room rate for the surrounding area was very low, but the rate for what you actually got was very disappointing. Would not recommend.
View from the room was perfect. It was quiet and close to several restaurants Hardly any hot water.
Location was convenient, price was great, everything basically worked, bed was comfortable and the linen clean. Floor was dirty, AC was very noisy, everything old and worn (I'm OK with "dated" but this was a little beyond that, furniture had broken bits)
The Staff were friendly and nice at check in. The room was roach infested and they never so much as emptied the garbage nor cleaned the bath tub. Not a good experience.
Price was great... Old rooms and noisy area.
Front attendant was friendly. Old and dingy. Sheets and bed reeked of sweat and filth. Moldy bathroom. Location was horrible with homeless people trying to get rooms. The tv didn't work. We could not stay one minute in the room. We raced back home (3 hrs away) half asleep. This was just a health hazard all around.
Stayed one night to visit my daughters college in St. Petersburg.
Easy reach from Interstate (though outdated address on our sat nav), some 15-20 minutes from beach. Superb pool with seating, BBQ and animals to watch and be watched by (lizards & squirrels).
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.
Two (2) positive offerings will make your stay pleasant. First, the availability of the wee-stocked breakfast offerings is a welcome bonus. Last, the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is reminiscent of what great customer service should represent. N/A
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.
Very attentive staff, nice place, great deal and the kids love it too!
Very easy to get to everything I wasn't but if you had a second floor room you had to use the stairs..
Nothing Lous dirty smells
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.
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.
The heated pool was a wonderful amenity. I swam laps each day either before I went out or in the evening, 9-10. Breakfast was more than adequate. Link tv, channel 375, was available on the tv and was what I watched most of the time I was in the room. The bed was comfortable and the room was kept clean each day. I was able to secure my computer in the room safe. And I only spent about $50/night.
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.
