Great price and an indoor pool.

Furthermore, some guests appreciated having an indoor pool to wind down in, while others were very happy to find their pets could stay with them, without having to pay too much of a fee.

Convenient Gulf Shore location.

Negative Reviews

Run down, with maintenance issues.

This hotel has generally been described by guests as run down, with a range of maintenance issues: The furniture and furnishings were sometimes found to be in a bad condition, the hot tub had been out of order for some time at the time of writing, and the technology was more than occasionally found to not be working, including things like air conditioning, ice machines and smoke detectors.

Poor standard of cleanliness.

The cleanliness standards at Magnuson Hotel and Suites Gulf Shores AL could be a lot better, according to reviews.The housekeeping service during guests' stays was sometimes found to be poor, and there were occasionally reports of bugs found in rooms, as well as dank odors and black mold.

Staff service and breakfast not the best.

A fair number of those who stayed said the breakfast was not very good, with only a few options of cereal or bagels available — but at least there was coffee on offer. Meanwhile, some people reported receiving poor customer service, from staff members who seemed inconvenienced, and were thought to react to requests less than professionally.
