“Don't forget the earplugs”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

One of The best part of the hotel is the very nice clerk that checked us in . She was really pleasant, and helpful. Also the Chinese restaurant right next door was pretty good with awesome soup! ( Fortune chinese restaurant)
The bed was very comfortable too- unfortunately I didn't sleep a wink, literally never longer than 45 minutes at a stretch because out neighbor had a booming type of voice and it was so loud in our room they seemed to be up all night. There are also trains that go by in the middle of the night-- so bring earplugs!! ( note to self!) Also the heat is supplied by baseboard heaters that make a lot of noise-- not a steady type of white noise, but an intermittent snapping .
The room was very clean, if outdated. A close walk to Walmart, very convenient to the freeway.
I really wanted to give this a better review, but couldn't due to the loudness of our room.

Very clean and comfortable rooms with huge walk in shower. The staff were very helpful and courteous. Will definitely stay again. Great location for the shopping in Burlington and close to beautiful Anacortes.

stayed 1 night, room was clean but in need of updating. Looks like the entire hotel is in need of major renovating. The breakfast was very good with lots of choices. I wouldn't stay here for a lengthy time but it is ok for a night

We were starting our annual trek south. we are Best Western rewards members so naturally decided to check out BWesterns first. We went into the office to iquire if their were rooms available for that night. We clearly interupted and inconvenienced the clerk because the greeting was basically "what do you want?" A room for the night perhaps? The opportunity to give you our cash? With much grumbling, she got to her feet....could we see a room? Much eye rolling from the desk clerk. That was really an inconvenience. Did we know the pool didn't work? If we wanted a pool, we should go across the street to the Quality Inn. So we did, and gladly. We were clearly an inconvenient interuption. Just in case readers think we were undesirables being discouraged, we are a clean, sane looking, well dressed couple in their 60's, travelling with a black standard poodle who is welcomed everywhere. Have no idea what a stay would have been like. The reception we received was so rude we would never consider staying here.

This hotel os great. Clean, quiet, friendly front desk. Across the street from an Arby's and DQ. Very comfy, linens are outstanding. Would definitely recommend. 2 blocks west of I-5 & college way. One exit from anacortes exit and outlet center.

Room Tip: My room was around "back" and very quiet

To be fair, we thought we had booked the "other" Best Western in Mt. Vernon. This one is located just off the highway, but really the noise level was insignificant. Not so good: the bathroom is tiny (sink is located outside the bathroom), entrance to the room is from the outside, and the furnishings are well-worn. Pluses: the staff is friendly and the expanded continental breakfast is really quite good (waffles, fruit, baked goods, cereals, yogurt, boiled eggs, juice, coffee)!
