Magnuson Grand Pioneer Inn and Suites
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Escanaba
Reviewed 10 October 2011

Not my favorite place to stay. The staff was nice but the room were not up to par. Nothing horrible - but small things like mold in the shower; needed new carpet and the beds were OK. It was well located. - 6 min. drive to the airport; 2 minutes to Subway; 3 minutes to McDonalds.

We were on a 2 week long driving trip through Wisconsin and Michigan. We were heading over to Mackinaw Island and had to stop in Escanaba for the night. We called this hotel because we usually have good luck with Best Westerns. And this is probably one of the best ones we've stayed in.
We were about an hour south of town when we called and just happen to get their last room for that night (due to a cancellation)! We were so lucky.
This is probably the cleanest, tidiest room we've ever visited. We have two small boys who are all over the floor and I wasn't worried about it here. You can tell the hotel is older, but the rooms are so clean and quiet. The staff was so friendly too. Every housekeeper we passed in the hall made a point to say hi and talk to our sons.
Their breakfast was very good - waffles, eggs, sausage, fruit, toast, potatoes. We didn't leave hungry (even our older son who can be very picky!).

If we're ever back in that area, we would stay there again.

Stayed here a couple of months ago, and when we went up to our room found the whirlpool torn apart and the room unusable. They immediately put us into another
room and gave us a discount (because the new room had no sofa!). On returning
home we received an email from the manager stating that they felt there hadn't been
enough recompense for the room and we were given a credit for a free night in a
whirlpool/fireplace room (which was the same as the original room). On both visits
we were greeted by a very friendly desk clerk, and everything was very well done.
The buffet breakfast was okay, not great, but what can you expect for free? It had
eggs, sausages, sausage gravy and bisquits (yum), hash browns, and fruit. The pool
looks great, but haven't had a chance to try it yet. There is a restaraunt onsite, and
a bar downstairs. Everyone is friendly and the room very clean. The beds are very
comfy - in all, we will be going back!

We stayed for 3 nights and were very satisfied. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool is kid friendly, but also has an 8 ft deep end. Pool towels must be requested at the front desk and are very small. The breakfast was great. It included scrambled eggs, sausage, and breakfast potatoes along with muffins, cereal, etc. each day with some additional hot foods on the weekend. The cook and wait staff were very friendly. We had checked prices online but got a much lower rate when we stopped to inquire in person, arriving at 9:00 on a Wednesday night, so I was glad I didn't pay ahead! Overall, it was a very good hotel for our needs.

The hotel room was showing its age, but it was clean and well maintained. The staffing was professional, however the breakfast was nasty. The waffle was the frozen type you put in the toaster, the potatoes and eggs were cold. The only good thing was the coffee.

This is an ok hotel in Escanaba, MI. The rooms are a outdated and the bathrooms are small. Everything was very clean and the price was right so if you don't mind the old fixtures, its an ok place to stay. The service in the resturant was horrible but the food was delicious.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room.

Good rooms, although we got close view of the air conditioning unit. Nothing else to moan about. Staff are excellent, food is good.
