tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Ron Z : Reedsburg, Wisconsin

I stay at the Magnuson only because Of the location and only off season. I had a paid reservation for two rooms, but they said they only showed one room. This is why a carry paper copies, to say look right here. Get me the second room. Rooms are 1960's style, but work ok for sleep and a shower.

Wonderful experience

Our boating club with 34 members attending, spent the weekend at the Magnuson. Five boats docked at the Marina and the rest of booked various rooms. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is older but the rooms are in good condition. We all had dinner the hotel and the food and service was excellent. Great expeience and we all plan to go back again in October.

Wouldn't go back!

We recently stayed at marina cove as a family for 2 nights, unfortunately we would not return. Although the rooms were clean the hotel & facilities were poor. The beach is not what it seems from the photos online it was virtually non existence & what was there was dirty and unsuitable for children. The smell from the Bay Area was horrendous the stagnant water was disgusting. Do not go in the water it will make you sick if the smell hasn't already! Breakfast was a poor state of affairs the food was below average and the toast came accompanied with hair!! Definitely will not be staying here again and would not recommend it to others looking for a break!

  • Hillary S :

The pictures of this hotel are totally deceiving.I would listen to the bad reviews they are right. The hotel is dirty. The water smells like a sewerage. Very outdated. Plus the pool didn't look bad although I did not get in. The restaurant HORRIBLE I wrote a seperate review and forgot to mention drinks taste like water & everything overpriced. Back to hotel the pool is the onlyGood thing it seems to appear. Good spot for fishing. Only stayed here bc we where on s budget and last minute. We spend mostOf time out of the hotel and come to lay down and barely want to do that. I won't be returning. Highly Disappointed

  • Jimmie G :
Would have given a....

All things considered not a bad hotel. However, it did have flaws. First, the "beach"? No thank you. It was filled with seaweed. Also, the smell I could have done without. My room was the real issue. Let's just say I'm glad my wife and kids were not with me. Two cockroachs were found. One dead under a table and the other alive in the shower. I killed it. So, those issues aside, I would haven given at least 4 out of five. See pictures for proof.
