Verified Reviews of Magnolia Bay Hotel & Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Rooms were not cleaned. We were put in rooms that we were told we should have never been put in because they had not been used (nor cleaned) in over a year. We had ants, toilets did not work, and the rooms had an odor. Several people had to change rooms over four times. To top it off they now have a no refund policy.

Response from Management on 05-Oct-2015:
Krystle, I would like to thank you for your feedback on your stay. I am the new General Manager and reading all the reviews have been a great place to start the improvement of Magnolia Bay Hotel and Suites. I would like to address the comment rooms not been cleaned. My new staff and I have made a conscious room cleaning effort top to bottom. The rooms have been updated with new mattresses and new flat screen TVs. I have replaced all but 3 of the previous employees and added new staff that take pride in cleaning, and customer service. Thank you for your comments as they were a building block back to the top.
"Business Trip"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We had a large group of people staying here and we required a lot of room changing due to the nature of our business and the hotel was able to accommodate our needs. The staff was very nice and helpful all week. Hotel was being remodeled, but they were very courteous to us during our stay.

"Better Last Year"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This is our 2nd year staying at Magnolia Bay Hotel. Last year our experience was great. The staff and the rooms were excellent. This year some of the staff was friendly, but others was not so friendly. I understand the hotel is under renovations now but some of the amenities should have been better. There was supposed to have been breakfast, but we were told that the lady who handles breakfast had a flat and wasn't coming to work. Are you telling me they only have one cook? Rooms smelled like cigarettes. Mold in the bathroom shower. Something was wrong with the water, it was filmy. Debating if we will stay at this hotel next year.

Response from Management on 05-Oct-2015:
Shawn,Thank you for your review. I have addressed several of your concerns. I have replaced all but three of the past staff and and replaced with professional employees that love their job. We have up graded to new mattresses and new TVs (flat screen). We have painted and we have a new cook Ms B who is the BEST! Your comment "the room smelled like cigarettes" has led us to put a NO SMOKING IN NON SMOKING ROOMS FEE of $250.00. We are very vigilant in this and once again THANK YOU for the review, it is the building block to back to the top!
"Horrible, Dirty Rooms"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
This hotel had dirty rooms, mold on the wall, dirty sheets on beds, and the fold out couch in rooms were jammed and would not open. Hotel staff was unfriendly and refused to help with a problem that required a late check-out for one of 22 rooms even when we offered to pay for a late check-out.

"A Little Repairs Will Make It Better."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel appearance on the inside and out looked great. We were welcome with a smile. Check-in was quick and was well organized. We had 7 rooms in our group. We checked in on Friday and checked out on Sunday morning. Friday night, one of the rooms toilet handle would not work so the toilet ran all night and we found dead roaches in the middle of the floor upon arrival. Saturday morning we went down for breakfast having been promised a hot buffet breakfast. There was only two types of cereal (Total and Raisin Bran), toast and milk. We had to go and buy breakfast for the girls. Also on Saturday morning, the girls in one room woke up to a yellow jacket in their bed and the others found large roaches in their bathroom. Saturday night when a group walked in their room their toilet had over flooded. The breakfast Sunday morning was better and it was a hot buffet. Breakfast hours were from 6 to 9 am and when we went down at about 8:15, all the eggs and sausage was gone. We asked for more and the young lady said OK, but we never received any. We didn't see her anymore that morning. It’s not a horrible hotel, just need a little minor repairs.

"Not a Great Place to Stay"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
When we arrived as always, I inspect our room. The sheets had stains on them and hair as if they had not been changed. I called downstairs and informed the front desk. I had to walk downstairs to the front desk, pick up my sheets, and change the bedding myself. The comforter had cigarette holes in it and this was a non-smoking room. The hallway had a very bad odor. The front desk clerk advised me that on my floor half of the rooms were non-smoking while the other half of the floor was smoking. The best part of our stay was the hot breakfast, but I would not stay here again.
