Verified Reviews of Magnuson Grand Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Disappointed. Terrible continental breakfast. Watered down juice, cold eggs and coffee."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I was so disappointed with our recent stay at the Magnuson Grande. I Requested pillows for the sofa bed was informed that they were none. I wasn't asking for extra just the ones that should have been with the bed. My son and I slept on a broken down bed without pillows. After a horrible night sleep we were excited to have a hot continental breakfast but awake to a broken pancake machine a crock pot of tough over cooked semi warm eggs warm coffee no donuts or danish a milk machine that dripped milk into the cup and watered down orange juice. Without a doubt the worst free breakfast I have ever eaten. Upon check out I was informed that no compensation for the poor stay would be given.

"Handles Groups Well."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We had a bus load of athletes. Our rooms and keys were ready when we arrived, the rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast was ready and well stocked. Would recommend for traveling groups.

"Great place to stay"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This hotel is more than I expected after staying at a Manguson in Clearwater, FL about four weeks ago. Rooms are very clean and large, staff is excellent, breakfast is great and plentiful. I would definitely stay here again if we visit Madison, WI again.
