"Magnuson Hotel in Washington, NC"
For $57 a night you can't expect a great deal but the room was clean and the staff very friendly & helpful. "My" room was in a bit of disrepair with the ceiling crumbling, peeling and stained, missing handles on dresser, toilet badly stained, free WiFi wouldn't connect and the room safe never did work. The continental breakfast was adequate if you were […] hungry and rushed for time. However, the bed was comfortable and the tv worked ok. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I knew that it was not gonna b pleasing once we turned on Carolina Ave and saw the hotel. The staff was dressed in everyday clothing, not uniformed & no name tag. The hotel had an old smell and they had bathroom wick sticks on the counter, the hallway carpet way filthy, the smoke from the room knocked u off ur feet when entering. The shower curtain […] was moldy, bed hard as a brick. Must i go on. NEVER AGAIN, thats all i could say. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
office attendant didnt even get up when I walked in. Upstairs hallway stunk. Room was ok. Breakfast was a joke, no milk for the cold cereal, no fruit. I took a rice crispies treat and left. No directions for TV, couldn't get it to work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No coffee pot in my room! Treadmill in excercise room inoperative. No-one at front desk @ 6:00AM.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a brief stay"
Room was musty smelling but not overpowering. Turns out I got a room that allowed smoking. Didn't know any hotels allowed that anymore! Towels were scratchy but not surprising with the low rate I paid. Front desk clerk at check in was prompt, efficient and friendly. At check-out there was no one at the front desk, so I just left my card keys on the […] counter. Seems the clerk was out in front smoking a cigarette and Yakking it up with friends....too busy to do her job. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This stay was better than the first time we stayed (Aug.23 &24 of 2013).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel needs serious renovation!"
Bathroom doors that won't latch, room doors that you can open without a key, broken ice machine on second floor, sketchy night staff. These are things you will find if you stay at this hotel. I wouldn't stay here again if they paid me!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They shouldn't promise breakfast if they can't deliver. Their breakfast was a poor excuse for breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was being renovated, not quite a relaxing environment, construction in the hallways. Average at bestGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Theft by housekeeping/staff"
I left my phone charger in the room after checkout. I called the same day to report that I left the charger and where it was plugged in, kindly asking the hotel to send the charger to me via USPS. The hotel clerk I spoke to spoke like it was unlikely that the charger would be found, but said that she would check with housekeeping. She took my address […] and phone number and said she would call me if it was located. I requested that she call either way after checking with housekeeping. I never received a call back and the charger was not returned. The room and hotel itself was okay (you get what you pay for), but it did share a parking lot with a rundown motel which made the area look worse than it was. The beds in the room are very hard (and I like a firm bed) leaving my shoulders aching in the middle of the night. If I were to visit this area again, I would choose other accommodations.

We saw the pictures and decided that it was a decent hotel. We also paid a good amount of money for this stay. We had a awful stay. The AC unit was making loud noises so were the people on our floor - yelling and shouting till way past midnight and again the next morning. The breakfast was minimal and the same people were blocking the small room while […] 3 other old couples waited on forever. Will never again stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Check out your room."
The first room 114 was not ready, refrigerator issues; the second room 210, had a leaking toilet; the third room 214 had a bad thermosate, it was either on or off; did not set at a temperature. We moved three times that night. The magnetic keys would not always open the door. The breakfast was good and the lady behind the counter was very pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
hotel receptionist was outside smoking at the entrance several times as we were coming and going, leaving reception desk unattended. head housekeeper was dour, sour, unpleasant and never, ever returned any of our, "Hello!" greetings.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for the $"
The room was clean, beds comfortable, nice size fridge. Stairwells, lobby and parking lot could use some upgrades. You get what you pay for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not far to ECU"
Lovely inexpensive place to stay. Nice restaurant within walking distance, Blackbeard's.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the staff was great,only issue I had was needed more lighting where I ate in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Customer Service person when we got there and left was very nice. We went to our event and came back, found there was not a remote for the TV in the room; I went to the desk, the person there said he would have to get batteries and bring it to me. a half hour later my daughter went back to the desk; found him on his Ipad and again asked for a remote, […] said he would bring it, she waited. Our room was right at the ice machine and the front desk; no sound proofing in the room at all. About 2:30am I was awakened by a loud laugh and commotion in the lobby. I went out to ask if they could be a little quieter; the desk clerk just looked at me. I went back and found some ear plugs. The sanitation grade was 94.5; we did not eat breakfast there.

"Washington NC Quality Inn"
Room seemed confortable, but I spend the previous day entirely in my car, not in any wooded areas, yet I had a tick on my back the morning when I was checking out. I was also able to get onto their wifi the morning of check out, but could not get on the night before, dispite several tries, including rebooting my computerGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent overnight stay"
Spent one night on the way to our final destination. Hotel had some age on it, but the lobby and hallways had recent renovations. Rooms had yet to have the same upgrades. Still, not bad for an overnighter.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The AC barely worked and they had no fans, i had to go to Walmart and buy a fan for the room. I wont stay there again in the summer time anyway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfort in Washington NC"

"Room and breakfast"
Room was clean. Breakfast was not the best. Front staff was friendly. Reasonable price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent & affordable"
Hotel could use a little sprucing up with some paint & ac/heat units look a lil beat up but didn't interfere with us staying here. Only complaint I have is they could spend some $ on some bigger plusher pillows.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Pick this one!"
Spent two nights visiting my daughter and could not be more happier with our accomadations. I will stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Business Hotel"
This hotel was a good value for the price and a good place to stay on a business trip. AC was a little balky possibly because it is an energy saving unit. Other than that the wireless internet was good and the breakfats was very good (not just cereal and fruit).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good place to stay."
The bathroom door wouldn't close. The toilet run when it wanted to. Ironing board was broke. I was told I would get a replacement, but one never came. I did like the hotel though. I liked the room also. Breakfast was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
1st night was not good. Smelled marijuana down the hall on on second floor. a/c in room was not on despite reservation, room took 3 hrs to cool. Lobby used as a social gathering/drinking place. Same for entrance with the addition smoking. Staff was accommodating and moved me to first floor the next day. Rest of stay was better but nothing could reverse […] damage done.

"Nice hotel but hotel service at night poor"
Be sure not to forget anything as they have signs everywhere to just check with front desk but checked several times and promised to have next day but day after day didn't happen. If you are traveling on business -- business computer is very slowwwwwwwwww and it is located in the open in the main lobby so no privacy and people in and outGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No complaints, especially for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nicer than expected"
This hotel was actually better than the ratings online. We would stay here again. Staff is very helpful & willing to address all needs.It's not a luxury hotel, but it's perfectly fine for an overnight stay. Very nice breakfast including fresh waffles, eggs & sausage.Genuine Expedia guest review

We are not satisfied with our stay, No remote to operate tv , when called lady said she didn't know how to program and if bed wasn't laid in she would change rooms, this was at 8 that night we had played with grand baby who we drove that far to see all day, No ice, both machines were down, Pool covered, slow internet, husband could not get on at all..
"Someone in our room after we checked in"
10/17/14 Tokyo R Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Sorry, poor stay. We went to our room after checking in and found it occupied. The WIFI was weak at best. Had to switch to satellite data to get coverage. TV lineup was a lot of duplicates, no channel lineup card in the room,and when I got it it was inaccurate and no WTBS. Breakfast had no orange juice and was out of oatmeal packets. Hair dryer had grease all over it. No elevator to the second floor and stairwell area was filthy as was the hallway. Maids were nice but the girl behind the check in counter had an attitude.
"Moldy, Hot, Uncomfortable"
10/06/14 honeybair1962 Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
The only positive thing I have to say about this property is that it is economical. When we checked into our room, I noticed the huge ring of mold built up under the rim of the commode. My husband purchased a product with bleach and came back and cleaned it. There was also mold around the windows, cobwebs at the top of the window, a stain on the white light panel of the window. The mirror had dust around the frame and the bathroom floor was very dirty. Worse than the bad housekeeping was the discomfort caused by the AC. They must program their units to not cool during the night. A friend had a room across the hall and she had the same problem. I would never stay here again. The property was a Quality Inn which must have lost its franchise.
"You get what you pay for"
10/03/14 HerrP Warner Robins, GA
Internet price was $70 for my room. But when all was said and done, it was $84 with taxes and fees. Caveat Emptor... Room crams a decent size bed, a desk and a sofa into a little bit of space. Gotta give 'em props for that. Cleanliness is shaky. As soon as I walked into my "No smoking" room, as the sign said, I was welcomed by the stank of stale cigarette smoke. Not a good way to start a motel stay. When I checked out the bathroom, I saw the toilet and couldn't resist taking a picture of the stain. See pic. There's no elevator, so get a 1st floor room room if you've got a heavy suitcase. The so-called fitness room is pretty weak. There are 3 machines. The treadmill requires some sort of magnet from the front desk, according to the sign on the machine. The cycling machine looks so weak that I wouldn't get on it. Don't get yer hopes up. The TV shows analog. So if you're sitting back against the back wall, it's not so bad. There are 2 program listings in the room booklet, but both are incorrect. Free wifi is cool, if a little slow. Just have some patience, and your pages will load. There's a safe in each room. Note however that you will be charged $1.50 automatically even if you don't use it. Large frig and small microwave in each room. Coffee and coffeemaker too. That's a plus. Bed feels comfy. Also has lights on both sides, along with nightstands. See pics. Bottom line: you get what you pay for.
"I was surprised!"
09/29/14 Corwin_Hyman_Sr Woodbridge, Virginia, United States
So I booked this hotel solely for the price... I needed a quick stay for a quick trip. I didn't expect anything special and kind of expected a little disappointment. To my surprise the rooms were VERY CLEAN! The service was awesome.... staff was SUPER friendly and accomodating. I had a couple room visitors that night who were typical Hampton Inn stayers. They realized the rooms were about the same as well... definitely worth a look. Continental breakfast was typical with perks... They had a waffle maker and overall service was pretty good

I traveled here last month with the kids to take them to the beach and ride the ferry in Ocracoke, so we spent the night at the hotel before we left to catch the ferry ride the next day. I got the King Suite in order to ensure there was plenty of room for me and the kids. There was a huge king bed, and a sofa sleeper, we also got a rollaway bed so there was plenty of room for us, the suite was quite spacious, and very nice for the price.It had a jacuzzi in there that was seperated from the bathroom, of course the kids enjoyed that, they also enjoyed the pool, which was small, but quite enjoyable. If anyone is planning a family vacation with the kids, I would definitely suggest you stay here. The rooms are very clean and nice, and the staff is extra friendly.

Very clean rooms, friendly staff, helpful with directions and recommendations. Property was well maintained. Cleaning staff did an excellent job on the room. Beds were very comfortable and the room was quite. Enjoyed the fridge and microwave. Would recommend staying here when in Washington, NC. It is also near the movie theater and several restaurants nearby and easy to get to the waterfront.

"Possibly the worst hotel stay I've had"
08/31/14 Mshiel10 Charlotte, North Carolina
My girlfriend and I had the unpleasant experience of booking a room at the Magnuson Hotel in the bustling metropolis of Washington, NC for a friend's wedding. After trying repeatedly to call the hotel but getting routed through an overseas call center, we realized the hotel had no direct, publicly listed telephone number that worked in order to make a reservation. We went with an online booking agent and opted to place our faith with the fair number of positive reviews we came across. Our immediate impression of the hotel left much to be desired. It's adjacent to a number of other fine hotel establishments that look as though they may still rent rooms by the hour. As the hotel was overbooked for the wedding, we got stuck in a smoking room in the far back side of the second floor (to which there was no elevator access). We were told by the front desk staff that the smell "wasn't so bad". That was far from the truth. The smell hit us like a brick wall. Everything brought with us reeks like an ashtray with a hint of mold. Every minute spent in our hole of a room was nauseating. Aside from the smell, the furniture was terribly stained. Our sheets were stained as well. The exposed portions of the mattress were covered in hairs and featured more stains. The carpet was stained. The tile in the bathroom was somehow even stained. I'm usually easy to please and admit that most hotel stays are similar, but it'd be inhumane to not try to prevent other travelers from staying in this dump. The city of Washington should do travelers a favor and condemn this establishment.

In town visiting family and didn't want to impose, so decided to try this hotel, which was close to where family lived. Must say I was very pleased, also added bonus was that a waffle house was right across the street, because at 2am that pattie melt hit the spot. Rooms are very clean, and the lady who checked us in was very helpful as I told her I hadn't been to Washington in 10yrs and things were very different than I remember.
