Pool depth: 3' to 4' 8" WiFi: 1.6 mbps I don't necessarily mind a small pool, but the hotel photos made it look much larger, and I picked this hotel over another one because the pool seemed large. The water was cooler than in pools at other hotels we've been to on this trip. Front desk staff was friendly and...

I apologize that you found the pool disappointing in size, we try and take accurate and professional pictures. We also keep the pool in the temperature range as regulated by the local health department. Our WIFI signals are generally stronger than what you are reporting so I am not sure what happened there but I apologize. We hope you will...

If it was a $60 hotel, it may have been on par, but for $100, I expected much more. Walls were anything but soundproof, as I could hear the family upstairs talking in the evening and snoring at night. When walking down the hall, I could hear an echo of my steps and my lightweight wife's as well. Normally this...

Located on the outskirts of Ishpeming and right on the snowmobile trail so it is a great location for snowmobilers with ample room to park your large snowmobile trailers. There is lots of restaurants within walking distance. They have a nice pool and hot tub so it's great after a long day of riding. The rooms are small but clean...

Really liked this hotel. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable and well-furnished. Yes, it right on US 41, but what hotels aren't right on the highway these days? Didn't avail ourselves of the pool but it was clean, bright and inviting. Used the voucher for breakfast at the Country Grill next door. They have a special...

Our room was large, clean, with very comfortable beds. We did not have reservations, but were able to get a room. They did have parking available to leave our vehicle and trailer for a few days while we quadded up to Copper Harbor. Clerks friendly. No decaf in the lobby only regular coffee. Went next door with the coupon for...

They give you vouchers for breakfast at the Country Grill next door, which is free off of their limited menu until 9:00, or $3 off any meal any time. Since Marquette is an hour ahead of our time, it was always after 9:00 (their time). No going to the hotel lounge for a quick cup of coffee. There was a...

Thanks for the review and I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay. I do want to clarify on your comments regarding our breakfast as what you stated is incorrect. We offer our free full hot breakfast from 6:30 a.m.-10 a.m. every day and guests may still use them outside of the allotted time within reason. All you have to...

We asked for a pet room because we were intending to bring our dog. Very reasonable, extra $5 per night for a pet. We ended up not bringing the dog with but kept the room anyway. There was a smell of "stale dog," but to a certain extent, I'd expect that. Other than that, the room was clean and our...

Stayed at the Magnuson on a Sunday night two weeks ago. Booked the room by phone which was easy and quick. When we arrived we found an older motel that was showing some signs of age. The lobby was very small and worn around the edges. The check-in process went smoothly although the clerk was matter of fact offering little...

I picked this hotel because it is an easy drive (70 minutes) from our house and because I wanted to get my husband away for his birthday. We arrived very early and they were very happy to help us get registered for our room which was ready! We had a king whirlpool room and it was beautiful. Everything very clean,...

Rockaway, NJ
Reviewed 21 August 2015

Rooms in Marquette were scarce on a Friday night, so we chose Ispeming as a close alternative. The Magnuson was clean and staff was attentive. Included breakfast was at an associated restaurant with very limited choices or a $3 credit towards menu items. Other than the unusual breakfast offerings, would recommend this hotel to others.
