Guest reviews for Magnuson Hotel Brownsville

1 out of 5

Hotel smelled too much and was dirty and in poor repair

Cons: Nothing close
This hotel was poorly maintained, from the lobby to the rooms, and especially the gym. Lobby and rooms had a bad smell (probably cleaning products to mask other odors). Won't be staying there again and don't recommend it.

Motel was unwelcoming

Pros: Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, Poor breakfast
My stay was not good. I was told there was complimentary centennial breakfast, which they didn’t have. There was a Mexican restaurant on premises. It rain while we were there and all the carpets near the doors out of the build were soaked. The WIFI did not work well. There were bugs in the room. I was not happy.

Worked for my Purposes

Pros: Quiet, clean, open pool, comfy bed, parking, location
Cons: No free Internet, no breakfast
The hotel was clean and we were given our option of upstairs or downstairs rooms which was convenient. The room was nice and had a refrigerator and microwave a very important feature to me. I could not find a wireless signal, although that made little difference since I have my own and they only have a coffee bar, not a breakfast set up in the mornings which didn't impact me but may impact other visitors that count on it. There is a Mexican restaurant in the hotel, I cannot comment on that however as I did not go there. The pool was clean and open a huge benefit to me. The perfect place to unwind after a long day. Location was perfect as we stayed here and spent our days in South Padre about 24 miles away. All in all, I would stay here again. It works for my purposes, but lack of breakfast and wireless may impact others wishing to stay here.

Good location

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet, no computer room
The hotel is located in a good location. It's right off of the expressway, which made it easy to get around. The staff was really nice. The room was okay and clean. The downfall was that they didn't have a computer room for me to print my tickets for my flight. They had one computer in the front that dial up. It was extremely slow. They also do not have wireless internet. They have a really good Mexican restaurant in it.

Not so good...

The tv was fuzzy and the front desk guy came to fix it. He said they remodeled the rooms and not the cable and he couldn't fix it. The laMps in the room didnt work and the outlets were iffy as far as functioning properly. There was hair on the pillow cases and bed sheets. The bottom fitted sheet came about a foot and a half from the end of the bed, so your feet will touch where everyone elses has touched who stayed in the hotel. The interest was too slow to stream movies that we tried to watch on netflix since the tv didnt work. Overall, not so good...
