Negative Reviews

Stains in places

There have been a number of reports by guests about some really nasty stains on the bedding. If you experience this you could ask to be moved to a different room, otherwise, as some guests do, bring your own pillow and sheet.

Cleanliness issues

Visitors have been quite unhappy about the state of the room upon check in. For one guest, old bread was left in the microwave, the bathroom had not been cleaned between guests, and the bedding was grubby. The furniture also needed a good dusting down.

Needs a super facelift

The Magnuson Baton Rouge seems to be in need of a major upgrade. Guests have recommended improvements to the rooms, as well as the outer exterior. Many visitors have said that this hotel would really benefit from improvements, as it does have some good character.
