What I liked about the Inn is that the room looked old-style, feels like an old Irish tavern which was pretty cool. I wish the bathroom is inside the room but I am okay with its common bathroom since it was clean. if you ever want to take a shower in the morning, the bathroom is freezing cold. Since the... More

We were at the U of Washington for a conference and this hotel fit both our desire to be within walking distance and within our budget. No clutter, just simple, comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Breakfast was good but there were also nerby places to eat that were fun and good quality. We would definitely stay here again.

The building is about 100 years old. That's not the issue issue is here everything seems old. Room was clean enough although I found indecent odor in the bed. They have shared bathroom and toilet, which are very clean. In bathroom the shower was not working properly. Location is nice inside WSU. Diverse places to eat, lots of choices. Unless... More

This hotel had a common bathroom and no parking. Street parking was the only the option. They served breakfast in the 4th floor and there was almost no option in the breakfast. The fan in the room was also not working. Being said that it was clean.

先週、利用させていただきました。 チェックインするのに時間がかかりました。なぜかというと、スタッフが下のコンビニとホテルスタッフどっちもやっていたからです。ただ、そのお兄さんはとても親切で良かったのですが、スタッフをもう二人くらい増やしたほうが良いと言うのが感想。 あと、駐車場はこのホテルには無いので要注意。大学のビジターパーキングに停めなければなりません。ただ、かなり安全なので夜一人で歩いてても全然大丈夫です。 I was staying this hotel for one night and the staff was quite nice to me. However there was only one staff working there I couldn't check in as normal, had to wait for the staff for a while. And, if you whould stay this place and have a car, you are gonna have to park at... More

The College Inn is a good deal for those who aren't looking for some romantic hotel where it's modern and cozy. It really just serves it's purpose- giving you a place to stay outside of downtown Seattle, for a reasonable price. Yes, you share a bathroom, and yes it's clean. The rooms themselves make you feel like you've stepped into... More

The staffs were friendly and helpful. My room was clean and comfortable. Great location! Close to the university of washington and lots of restaurants/ coffee shops. It's not a fancy hotel, but it has its own charm.

For a budget traveller it's a very good choice. The location is also great, with many buses going to Westlake Center. Also a peaceful area and beautiful area with convenient access to University of Washington. Breakfast is quite good (as a hostel); the shared bathrooms are also clean. If you don't mind the old decor (sometimes some equips may not... More

This place was comfortable enough, but a little dingy and unloved. My room wasn't completely clean, had an over-the-sink light that didn't work, and needed decorating about 5 years ago. The receptionist/office person is up several flights of stairs, and was't there when the signs said he should be, and particularly at breakfast time (when I needed some advice). It... More

This place is very odd- but I booked as it was a lot cheaper than anything else in the area at short notice. The place bills itself as a European style hotel but I have stayed in lots of European hotels which are nothing like this... The rooms are clean, and the shared bathrooms also, in general clean, although at... More
