The room was 2 star hotel at best. The only convenience is that it is down the street from Busch Gardens.

Dump. Renovation work not finished.Staff rude.

Posted Feb 11, 2017
Stayed there for conference. Renovation supposed to be finished but was not, attendees not informed of issues.Everything about the facility was gross.Plywood duck taped to concrete floor partially covered by area rug for walkways-buckled with 2+ people walking on it. No restaurant in the building.Food brought in for breakfast dry and insufficient for # of people Box lunch sandwich-box would have tasted better.Ten degree swings in temp. Staff surly, clueless. Room fridge had rust on inside surfaces.Room key issues, no insulation between rooms, Noise! Room not vacuumed.Lights flickered constantly in meeting rooms and guest room. Parking lot filled with broken curb pieces and construction debris.Staff removed my luggage from room sometime between 8am and 10:30 bc they "thought" I had locked myself out with luggage still on the room. Technology in meeting rooms malfunctioned. Odd smells and sounds throughout .Not enough space to list all the horrors.

Lost our reservation and lots of construction

Posted Jan 23, 2017 on Hotels
I'm incredibly disappointed with this hotel and the service we received. We went to the Magruder for a dance conference, so our choice in hotel wasn't very much of a choice. We reserved the room months in advance, but showed up and our reservation had been lost. The staff were fairly useless in finding it and I'm still trying to work out all the problems with that. The reservation was confirmed and paid for, it was lost on either your or their end. In addition, the actual hotel was completely torn up and under construction. We had to walk entirely from one end to the other to do anything. There wasn't food available and because we had booked through a 3rd party we didn't get a voucher for breakfast and had to spend even more money on it. The carpets were gross, there were whole sections that were blocked off due to construction, and we were just generally disappointed. The rooms were clean and average sized, but the cons definitely outweighed the pros.

not worth the money.

Posted Jan 3, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel is nice from outside but interior definitely needs updating! Wish the site had said under renovations! Bathroom so small that you can not open the door if the bath mat is on the floor. Bed was so uncomfortable I tossed and turned all night. Ice maker on 2nd floor did not work so we had to go to the 1st floor vending! on the plus side, staff was nice.

Dear Karan, Thank you for staying with us at Fort Magruder Hotel & Conference Center. I sincerely apologize for the issues you encountered with us during your stay. I have made our Engineering Department aware of the issues with the ice maker on the 2nd floor and they are on top of it. On the other hand, I am very pleased that our staff gave you great customer service as that is what we are known for. Just to let you know, we are almost done with renovations and are expected to be fully completed very soon. We invite you to come back and stay with us during that time. Again, thank you for your honest feedback.

Fair and clean

Posted Jan 3, 2017 on Hotels
The stay was just fine. The room served its purpose and was a fair price. The indoor pool and spa area was a nice treat as well. The only thing we didn't like was that there was a renovation going on.
