              Great Hotel”

              This is an oasis in the city , and is really easy to get from from Phoenix airport/car rental, which is always good after 22 hours travel. Staff at check in were friendly and helpful, room was really clean , the pool area was immaculate, the breakfast was plentiful. We stayed here a year ago and also this year again, and would recommend to anyone wanting a friendly, relaxing hotel.

              Inexpensive, comfortable motel recently converted”

              This is a nice spot. Scottsdale [home of many relatives] has many hotels with a huge variance of cost, generally on the higher end. We've run the gamut in terms of cost, and the Magnuson was at a price point that made me suspicious. But the room was quite comfortable, the pool lovely for laps [me] or the family just after me, a lovely aviary filled with singing birds, decent breakfast, very friendly personable staff. Definitely a nice place to consider if you know Scottsdale and have a car.

              This hotel is presented online as upscale. However, I found it to be a dated motel only”

              The furniture, fixtures, flooring, etc. is very dated. It looks like most of it hasn’t been touched since the 80s. The staff was very friendly and nice, but something fishy is going on with the online reviews and prices. I feel like the information presented online manipulated me into believing that it was a much better value than it actually is.

              I spent 3 nights here with my mom who was visiting an Aunt and could not have been more pleased. The staff was very attentive when needed and the rooms were clean and a nice size. The courtyard with pool was exceptional gardens beautiful and the birds a nice touch. Breakfast was also a nice bonus. The only thing I missed that would have been nice was a hot tub, but the price and place and staff were all lovely

              Unhappy Camper”

              My bathtub had a long, dark hair (from someone else) on it the whole time I was there (3 days) and it appeared the carpets were never vacuumed the whole time either. The place was quiet and the bed was great, but this place is old and dated. It used to be an old Best Western that sold out to Magnuson. The WIFI was awful and my TV only worked one day of the three.

              While the room was a bit rundown it was ok. The room with the bath in it was very dirty - stained tub and floor, filthy baseboards, scuffed and stained door. Also, the room with the breakfast in it was especially dirty. No one was around to clean it up. However, the staff was friendly and helpful.

              Motel Impersonating a Hotel”

              This "Hotel" is nothing more than an upgraded motel. How if got such a high rating is beyond me. There is no parking valet. One must self-part in the outdoor, unprotected parking area. Once one checks in he must lug his own bags to his room. If it's upstairs, be prepared to lug his bags upstairs. The pool furniture is decades out of date. The rooms are small and the bathrooms tiny. The "free breakfast" is average for a motel, but there is no proper breakfast cafe. If looking for a "hotel" vs a "motel" keep looking.
