We stayed at the Magnuson because our daughter's soccer team was staying there together. It was awful. The young lady checking us in was very upset because she was having trouble with the reservation system and could not reach anyone for help. She told us she had only worked there two weeks and was working alone on what was a...

Stopped for the night while traveling on my way to Minnesota. The room was booked late, but still got right in with a reasonable price. The rooms were clean, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. It was a very pleasant stay, and I would recommend it to others going that direction.

****BEWARE**** I came in for a conference and my room was paid for by my boss' Credit Card. Two months later, I have charge on my personal Credit card for the room. That's double dipping and an unauthorized charge on my card. The way they got my card number, I bought a pizza through them that made me sick. I...

They have 1 employee that pretty much runs the show. She was very helpful at the front desk. There were multiple other people standing behind the counter at different times that didn't help any customers. Breakfast was good the first day and the second day the cook didn't show up until late meaning no breakfast for us since we were...

Needed a room while traveling. The front desk clerk was fast and efficient. The price for the room on a Saturday evening was great. ( booked through Orbitz) The room was clean and neat. It was within walking distance to the Madinson Ho Chunk casino. I did not eat the breakfast so I can't comment on that. There was a...

Very pleasantly surprised. Hotel staff was very attentive. Room was spacious & clean. Bathroom spotless. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast was labeled as Continental but was far more. Juice, coffee, scrambled eggs, sausage, cereals & a pancake maker! There was also a pool w/a hot tub & a fitness room. We did not use any of these. We wouldn't hesitate to...

We booked three rooms (two adjoining) at this hotel six months in advance for a wedding. We arrived at the hotel and were excited when we pulled up because it looked so nice on the outside but sadly that was the only nice thing about this hotel. We went in, waited 20 minutes to check in and got our room...

I was taught that if I can not say anything nice, I should not say anything. There is NOTHING nice about this hotel, therefore I will not say anything. A better option may be to sleep in your vehicle. The weather in Wisconsin is beautiful. Lots of road construction. Power through it and keep driving past this hotel.

I had a great deal through Travelocity that took this our room from being just over $100 to $80. I may not have tried it if it weren't for that. The room was very clean and updated. The place was quiet and we had no problems at all. I would absolutely come back.
