"Stay on the way to airport"
All was good. Nice retro style hotel. Room was clean and staff friendly. Only concern was that the room heat was only coming out of one vent and there were two other vents but no heat. Phoenix does get cold in the winter it was 40s when we were there. Despite the heat being cranked full on the room never heated.

"Fair, OK value."
A nice motel. Room could have been cleaner. Turned on ceiling fan and dust went everywhere. Continental breakfast was good. Fine for value. An older motel that has been kept in fairly good condition. Right next to Papago mall.

"Comfortable surprise in Scottsdale"
Our room was large, clean, and comfortable. This is all we could ask for for an overnight stay. The front desk clerk also made a great recommendation for dinner when we asked for a Mexican restaurant. Breakfast was adequate enough to start our day. We highly recommend staying at Magnuson Inn when in the Scottsdale area.

"Simple"
The hotel met our needs given its proximity to ironman az. Think motel 6 with a different flair to it. If your needs are simple, this is a fine place to stay. For you want to wow your wife, this isn't the place.

This is a good cheap hotel. There is free parking and its close to the airport. It's out of the way for any tourist activities. The staff are very helpful...going out of their way to help, but the hotel is pretty run down.

"Magnuson Hotel - Scottsdale"
The experience with the bartender Bruce was great he was respectful and put up a great conversation keeping you engaged and entertained. Overall the hotel was very nice, clean and staff at the reception desk were awesome. Definitely suggest a stay at this hotel if you are in the Scottsdale area, and it's just minutes away from Phoenix Sky Harbor and Old Town Scottsdale!

"Clean, pleasant, affordable....."
We had a wonderful two night stay at the Magnuson Papago Inn. The staff couldn't have been more friendly, and the hotel, while a little old school design-wise, was very well maintained. We also got a really great rate, which made it even more appealing. Would stay here again without hesitation.

"A blast from the Past"
I stayed a week and it was very relaxing. I so appreciated the "throw back" style of the place to make you feel you were staying in the past. All furnishings were very well maintained and not run down, but it felt like you were in a clasic 1960's hotel that was just opened.

"refurbished motel for sure"
To be fair the description does reference an old motel/hotel that was remodeled or renovated. It certainly was. Parking was tricky in that - hard to find. The rooms still had that musty-old cigarette smell despite the renovation. You can hear your neighbors and everyone in the pool/courtyard area due to thin walls/windows. I think all the rooms opened to that area as well. Front desk was very nice and helpful. I didn't make it to the breakfast or the cocktail lounge on site so i can't comment on that. The bathroom was small but they offered a mini fridge so that was nice. A way to keep drinks cold are essential for visiting Phoenix/the Valley. Housekeeping came by "early" in the AM (approx 9a) but since there wasn't a door handle placard to hang stating "let me sleep in or something to that affect" they knocked loudly and then opened the door. Apparently i didn't shout loud enough to stop them in time. On that note, it is not a place for quiet and relaxation. You can hear your neighbors, ppl walking around (we were on the 2nd level), etc. Location was okay, about 7-10mins south of downtown Scottsdale (you could take the first left onto Scottsdale/Rural rd) and you could take McDowell for about 4-6 stoplights before hitting the 101.

"Nice Homey Hotel Stay"
Though the hotel was built in 1965, it was very homey, quite, and nice. All staff were very friendly and the king size bed was firm. The breakfast room was setup like a restaurant with cloth table linens beneath panes of glass on tables. Drinking mugs were ceramic vice the usual styrofoam cups and there were glasses for juices. Food choices were to-be-made waffles, bagels, toast, pasties, hot oatmeal & hard boiled eggs. Would stay again on another trip.

"Great for the price."
The hotel certainly looked better in pictures than in person. Especially the pool. The hotel was old but exceptionally clean. It was in an okay neighborhood and not within walking distance of Old Town or the mall but it was less than 10 minute drive to get there. There was enough parking but the lot was very small so if you drive a large very large vehicle maneuvering around might be tricky. All that said, the hotel was great for the $102 I paid for a room with 2 (really comfortable) queen sized beds. Cleanliness is the number 1 thing for me and this place was very clean. I'd stay here again.

Front desk staff fun and welcoming, ASU gear on! Lane (sorry if wrong name, notes are at home)@ front desk worked on my laptop for over 30 minutes and got it connected to internet. Business center very useful. Can't say enough about the wonderful service, and at breakfast, too. Well stocked, hot food, great coffee. Had another local hotel that I liked but this one is more comfy, and less "corporate". Great job, Magnuson Papago!

"Way Beyond Our Expectations!"
We picked this particular hotel to save money since we were only in town a few days for a business trip. When we arrived we were surprised that such an affordable hotel would have such beautiful scenery in the courtyard. A lemon tree, dozens of parakeets, and a double swing that my spouse and I were able to enjoy every morning. When you add in the restaurant and bar this made for an exceptional place to stay! We normally don't stop in this area much but rather pass through on our way to other destinations but we have not decided to stop for the night when we get the opportunity. This hotel is a hidden gem that I will recommend to all of my friends & family.

"An Oasis in the Desert."
I came to Phoenix for my anniversary with my girlfriend. Finding a decently priced and clean hotel for us to stay was hard but the Magnuson came up on my search results decently priced since I purchased a flight beforehand. I decided to take a shot and give this hotel a try. At first I had my doubts, but I would be soon be proven wrong. One of my favorite things about this hotel is how close it is to the airport, and after dealing with the hustle and bustle of traveling it is nice to have a hotel nearby. Eating out is easy too. There are a few restaurants just east of the hotel in the Papago Shopping Center. If you need food and aren't in the mood for driving somewhere...take a walk next door. Security at my hotel is also very important to me. I can tell you that the entire time I was at the hotel I felt safe. All the rooms face in towards a central courtyard complete with a beautiful pool, a giant bird cage, and a life size chess board. All doors leading into this courtyard require a key card in order to get in. I never once had to worry about someone who shouldn't be there wandering around the place. Entering the room I was greeted to a flat screen TV, fridge, coffeemaker, ironing board, and something I've never seen in a hotel room....a ceiling fan. The room is simple, but with a comfy bed, clean carpet, quiet AC, and a spotless bathroom, there isn't much else I need. I wouldn't mind staying here again. Breakfast was simple but good and the staff was wonderful.

"1970's glamor in the middle of suburbia"
Coming here was like living on a cruise boat circa 1970. The decor was totally of that period - the orange paint, rock wall siding, the bird cage, the human-sized chess board, the two-person swing. Regardless, it's a comfortable air-conditioned stay in the inhuman 100F heat of Arizona. Breakfast is fairly typical continental - the only highlight is the single waffle maker that is always in use.

"Nice birdcage!"
The hotel advertises that they have a restaurant on site and the front desk clerk mentioned the "restaurant" was open from 7:30am to 10:30am. In reality, it is a continental breakfast with poor service. I don't mind a continental breakfast if I am made aware of that in the beginning. It was very disappointing to find out there was no table service, no bacon and eggs.
