Magnuson Hotels, the world’s largest independent hotel group, announced today the complete rebranding of the M-Star Augusta. Formerly a Relax Inn, this 150-room hotel seeks to upgrade its local, regional and national market position through its affiliation with the Magnuson Hotels brand designation.

Corporate, educational, government and leisure travelers will appreciate the 100% non-smoking M-Star Augusta. The hotel is conveniently located in East-central Georgia, between Atlanta, GA and Columbia, SC near I-520 Exit 10, about two miles Northwest of Augusta, GA. Augusta State University is minutes away to the Northwest and manufacturing plants for Procter & Gamble, GD Searle NutraSweet and Coca Cola are less than 5 miles from M-Star Augusta. The Belair Convention Center is close for corporate travelers, at about 9 miles West and military families can enjoy the close proximity of Fort Gordon, which is only 16 miles to the Southwest.

The M-Star Augusta offers guests free airport shuttles, free high-speed internet access, free parking and services for fax, copy and wakeup calls. Other amenities include onsite laundry facilities, RV/truck parking and a 24-hour front desk. Guest rooms include cable TV with extra stations, free high speed wireless internet access, microwave, mini-fridge, free local calls, air conditioning and electronic door locks.

“Guests will enjoy the variety of activities near the M-Star Hotel Augusta. We are proud to welcome owner John Momin and his staff, and are committed to increasing their property visibility and reservations,” stated Thomas Magnuson, CEO.

As a Magnuson Hotels affiliate, the M-Star Augusta will receive complete brand representation across North America and the UK, without the costs and requirements of franchise brand affiliation. The M Star Hotels brand offers owners of upper economy hotels the highest visibility brand positioning, to clearly communicate the value of their hotels’ service and quality to value-conscious business, group and leisure travelers worldwide.
