Upon check-in a booking error was made by myself which was rectified by the friendly staff. Room was comfortable, although somewhat small. Bed was very comfy, and room was clean. I missed breakfast and a very accommodating staff brought me some muffins. Pool was great. Nice quiet clean room and hotel. Would stay here again.

The Sharp odor of smoking inside the room makes my friends going crazy. Their young kids can't sleep until 11:30 PM that night. And hotel manager did sent somebody to check after we left the hotel. The hotel said it's new carpet smell not smoking smell. I wish Best Western Inn of Mount Vernon, WA (College Way) can understand what... More

Dear Lisa L, Since we are a nonsmoking property, we are concerned about smoke odors in all of our rooms. If we find a room to be smoky (or have a strong odor), the room is placed on hold until the issue is resolved. It is our goal to identify these rooms prior to guest arrival. When your friend reported... More

I drove 5 hours for the Skagit Valley Highland games and thought I would take a chance on this BW in this small town. I am so glad I did, it was way nicer than what I expected. It is very conveniently located by the freeway as well as a few restaurants. I was impressed by how clean the room... More

Unfortunately, a medical emergency was the reason for this stay in Mt. Vernon. The BW College Way Inn is very easy on and off I-5 and only 1 exit away from the hospital so it was nearby. I asked for a room away from the ice/vending machines and traffic noise and got a quiet, corner location.

I came to this place with my family just as a mini overnight vacation. We came from Canada to go shopping and just get out of the house.

Chelsea-Claire F, So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay (from the guest room to the continental breakfast). In regards to the "shabby" look upon your arrival, we have started a property-wide design renovation project and are working on the exterior this year then moving into the guest rooms next year. We're sorry to hear that the wifi was not... More

Suffers from being older. Great bed and shower, not enough hot water, poor electrical outlets - not enough, and things found disconnected. Good microwave and fridge. A bit crowded in floor space. Noisy, but probably to be expected on weekends.

I was nervous to book this place as a few of the reviews were negative but to my surprise it was clean, nicely decorated, beds comfy and folks at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful. Its central to everything you need in Mr. Vernon. I would stay here again!

With Best Western... one never knows what one will get. I stay at a lot of Best Westerns and this is definitely a Best Western to pass by. The College Way Inn is an ancient motel to which some new paint has been applied. 1950's style furnishings abound. Our room was so musty I thought Edgar Allen Poe's Annabel Lee... More

Dear Breathingtokens, We’re sorry to hear about a musty odor you found in the room during your stay with us. While 25 of our 65 rooms were built in the 1960’s for the world’s fair in Seattle, we have done numerous upgrades to all rooms and are currently in the middle of a property wide design upgrade for all areas...

The room was smelly but seem to be clean. The bed was good. Difficult to operate the heating system, but seem to work well once it was set up. The TV system can be difficult to operate. The restroom was very small. Our allover impression was a very outdated room for a very high price.
