Older hotel property, but easy walking distance to the beach. Nice beach restaurant/bar next door. Hotel did have continental breakfast items available which was nice. Carpet in the room appeared to be fairly new.

We have been staying in Clearwater Beach for a 2-week winter vacation for the past 9 years. The best find ever has been the Magnuson. The view is amazing, the staff is friendly, helpful and kind.

Hotel is within one half mile of all beach functions. Staff was highly supportive. Establishment is a little older but cleanliness is top notch. The Jolly Trolley stop is right in front of hotel which is very convenient.
