Looking for a room to stay for a business meeting the next today. Great rate, great neighborhood. Older hotel that has been remodeled. Good value!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Their breakfast is okay. Not great breakfast buffet. Surprise no orange juice, no half milk for coffee. We enjoyed the environment view and many great restaurants by this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bit of a roach problem"
Where to start? No ice, no vending machines. It was hot and we were told to come to the office for ice. We were off to a bad start with the door not opening. Well it was because the entire mechanism was falling out of the door. Ok next, HUGE dead roach greeted us in the bathroom. Sheets were clean and bed was soft. This was 1 of 3 large buildings, the […] other 2 were stacked up and being used as storage facilities. There is somehow a post apocalyptic feel to this property. Finally later in the night I saw some cars and people nearby. I saved almost $30.00 over the nearby major brand hotels. As I will be returning to Tyler in the near future, I will definitely spend the extra bucks next time and NOT be staying here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Last minute booking. Very pleased"
Staff was very friendly. Room had just be renovated. Great price. Would definitely stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location for a show at Click's Live. Great customer service. The pool chemical balance was off and closed but the room was clean and the environment was quiet and peaceful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good price, good service. No smoking room still smelled somewhat smoky, only problemGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to U.T. and Loop"
Overall the room was nice. The carpet needs shampooing and deep cleaning. Location was not easy to see from road at night arrival. Pet access was plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Conveniently located and pleasantly surprised!"
After reading the mixed reviews I booked a 2 day stay for my family of 5 by calling hotels.com directly. They were very helpful in booking this way. I was hoping the information about 'new management' meant good things. I was very happy and surprised with this hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable. We needed more towels and an extra blanket (A/C […] was VERY cold) and they were provided quickly and politely. We also opted for a fridge and microwave, both in new condition. The pool was clean and refreshing and was just what we needed after a 100 degree day! It's set in the middle of the property in kind of like a park setting so there is privacy from outside viewing. The hotel is still renovating so, no on-site food (only drink machine) but it is conveniently located in the area and is close to just about anything you may need, even bowling! I suggest Coyote Sam's Bar and Grille for a near by restaurant that's got great food and decent prices. Overall, a good experience and I would take my family there again if need be.

"very convenient for pinch"
the hotel room with a little run down but there was plenty of room. The staff was very friendly.it was no longer its heydayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We felt rushed out because the check out time is at 11am and staying later than than costs extra. We would have liked to have checked out at noon instead.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a nice place to stay. I would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for just a place to sleep"
Bed is awesome. Location great. No breakfast. Needs a lot of updating. Website and door of the room say noon checkout but it's 11 am checkout and for a fridge and microwave it's 10 dollars extra per nightGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenience, great landscaping, great pool"
We got off on the wrong foot due to a miss understanding over appliances. But the staff made every effort to accommodate my satisfaction. The 2 night stay was a great deal, with a more than satisfactory staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Older hotel still needs some updates but was clean & quiet. Pool was very enjoyable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was billed by hotel after paying online.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel Is old and run down. We asked for nonsmoking rm. the rm spelt of old stale cigarettes. The pool and outside are we're closed because the pool was not up to standards. We ended up moving to another hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel rooms need to be updated, but they were clean and serviceable. Very worth the money for the stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Inexpensive Accommodations in Tyler, TX"
Room was clean and neat although the furnishings were dated. A little hard to find. It is still branded as a Ramada Inn and it is off-street about a block.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hunted 1/2 hour to find because sign said Ramada"
Drove around it for 30 min because it's signs still say Ramada. Found it when we finally stopped to ask them where the Magnuson was. Hotel was beautiful once upon a time, but was let run down badly. Our room was wonderful, clean and fully supplied with everything you could need. Bed was great. But, pool was green, restaurant was long closed, and back […] doors to main entrance were locked so you had to walk or drive all the way around to get to the front desk. Landscape and exterior was in sad shape. Too bad, so sad. Still, would recommend. Quiet and good room is all that's needed for overnite, and that we got. :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

convenientGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Old hotel that needs a complete remodel. I was only there for a 8 hours to sleep. It was quite, but there were very few other guest.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for the $$$$"
Not horrible. It was an inexpensive place to crash. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, the room was clean albeit older and dated, but overall it's tolerable. It's not the Ritz but for about 1/2 of what the surrounding hotels were charging I consider it a good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
did not have microwave or refrigerator as stated when I made reservations. Otherwise O.K.,Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A good quite place"
This hotel was located in a nice quite spot. I had a very restful night of sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is actually a Ramada Inn. This is the worst place I have ever stayed. I had a reservation for a king bed and sleeper sofa, what I got (after a confrontation with hotel management) was a king bed and roll a way bed. The room smelled like mold and mildew, which is a big deal for someone with allergies. There were two towels for three people […] to shower. Bathroom door would not shut. This place should not even be on hotels.com list. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"convient to everything we needed"
The rooms need to be up dated; but, everything was very clean and the staff could not have been more helpful. THANKSGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Magnuson has recently become a Ramada. Promised frig, microwave, and wi fi were not available. Hair dryer did not work. Staff brought a frig, microwave and new hair dryer. After four nights, wifi never became functional. New owners are trying hard, but are not there yet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is old... But cheap. I guess that makes it okGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Was across from where we were to have family dinne"
This is a very old hotel that is in need of some serious repairs - there were very large cracks in walls and ceiling, towel racks were ripped out of the wall, had to plug in lamps and even the phone. There were not even any towels in the room, had to call to have them delivered. The only good thing was that it was next door to the restaurant we were […] attending for family dinner.

Will not use this hotel again. Not a pleasant experience at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There were no wash cloths in our room, but we go over that. The service was fantastic! The breakfast in the Veranda was awesome! We may come back to this hotel just for the food and service.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was clean and definitely worth the money. The receptionst was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wow! Customer Service amazing and felt very welcomed!"
10/10/14 Lance N Christy D
I found this hotel because of a business trip. I was warmly greeted after my travels and all questions were answered before I left the front desk. My requests were catered too which is greatly appreciated because I travel a lot and try not to be needy but request certain things like first floor or close to elevators because I carry many bags to my room. I was pleasantly surprised by the updated rooms and the cleanliness. I felt comfortable and safe as a business woman that travels frequently. This hotel will be my only choice when I stay in Tyler.

We were greeted with a keycard that didn't work. Carried our luggage back downstairs for a new one. Ah, this one worked but only if you pulled the lever "up". Seems the door lock was quite broken. Ok, so we're in! Welcome! says the 3" water bug. Do NOT take off your shoes here, carpet is sticky dirty. Good news, good linens and mattresses. One bed did seem to have a whole lot of little black specks like pepper everywhere. My daughter shared mine just in case. Does this one have potential when finished? Don't know about it. Get an ice machine, maybe even one vending machine, and close the curtains on all of those empty "storage rooms". It is just creepy like a war zone.
"Great business stay"
10/05/14 Bob C Milwaukee, Wisconsin
I was recently in Tyler for business. This hotel was recommended to me by one of my clients. A nice surprise. New owners, many updates, newly redecorated rooms, and a relaxing, nicely landscaped courtyard and pool where I enjoyed my morning coffee, and unwound in the evening. Friendly staff and great breakfast. Restaurants are within walking distance. I will be returning next time I'm in town.
"Enjoyed my stay at the Magnusom"
Our family recently stayed at the Magnuson Hotel inTyler for a get together. We really enjoyed the beautiful setting and watching the kids swim and have fun in the pool. Also, enjoyed visiting in the dining area. The rooms were very nice and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. Walking distance to several restaurants. Great value for this beautiful hotel.

"Worth the price, I think"

Depending on whether the men a few doors down quit yelling ... which has been going on since we checked in. I haven't called mgmt because my husband says to let it be. We have room 267 tonight. Room very small and dark. Bed looks good. But the furniture needs some improvement. I suggest they rip out the carpet and go with laminate or tile. Would make room lighter and cleaner. I do hope the fighting stops!!! The pool is great. Lobby looks nice.
""being remodeled" , i got a "remodeled" room."

i would have avoided if i had just walked in the door instead of interent booking. unfinished hotel. my room was "remodeled" paint job could have been done by an 8 year old, same with plaster, all cheap. a well run motel six would be better.

I recently stayed at the Magnuson Hotel when I was in Tyler for business. The Holiday Inn Express was full and decided to stay here. I never heard of the name before and was surprised as it was a very unique hotel. After work I relaxed near the pool area which was very private and nicely landscaped. My room was very spacious with a comfortable king bed, oversize chair with ottoman, desk area and flat screen tv. The staff was really friendly and made suggestions on things going on in their city. The price was great and I actually liked it better than the Holiday Inn. I will be back in October and hope to stay again.
"Hidden Gem in Tyler. TX."
08/20/14 OdomGator Canton, GA
I was pleasently surprised with this beautiful property. I was in Tyler for business and stayed at the Magnuson. The guest room is brand new and decorated beautifully. The bed is very comfortable and the flat screen tv was wonderful. The lounge and restaurant area is perfect for a relaxing night working or watching tv. Although I was here on business if you are in the area on leisure I recommed this property. The outdoor pool is beautiful and there is a great patio area for eating or just hanging out. There is alot of meeting space and the property has a great ballroom for weddings. There are numerous restuarants within walking distance of the hotel as well. Hope to make it back to the area as I will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

Clean hotel with newly remodeled rooms. The service and staff were very helpful. It is in a wonderful location in the center of town. There are many food options within walking distance. Wonderful place, very pleased!
08/13/14 Les E Tyler, Texas
Loved the location and setting. This is one of the prettiest grounds of a hotel we have had the pleasure to stay at. Rooms and hotel seem to have been recently remodeled. I love the character that the hotel has. You don't seem to find that is some of these cookie cutter new hotels. Family loved it and would not hesitate to recommend it.
