“Two Towel Limit Per Room”
Reviewed August 2, 2009

This hotel was on a recommended hotel list for our National ASA Softball Tournament. They did not have realistic expectations of the needs an athletic team which may play multiple games a day in record breaking heat would require. On the 2nd day of a 7 day stay they initiated a 2 towel, 1 washcloth, 1 hand towel limit per room which had four guests in it. They also started charging if the towels were turned in too dirty which meant we had to hand wash towels before getting clean ones. Their breakfast which is advertised as a way to "get your day started" only consisted of a couple dozen Danishes which were supposed to feed a 40 room hotel with no vacancies. I would not recommend this hotel for anyone traveling with children or in a group of two or more. There is no common area to rest or visit outside and congregating is discouraged by the hotel staff.

tulipinn, Manager at Tulip Inn Mt. Vernon, responded to this review, September 20, 2009
The softball teams were either using the towels to wipe off their shoes or taking them to the ball field and getting them stained with the red palying dirt. The red stains were impossible to remove from the bright white towels even after multiple washes. The 2nd day of their stay approximately 1/3 of our towels went missing- the teams were taking them to the ball field and not bringing them back. The teams were advised not to take the towels off the premises, but after a few days there were so many towels missing the hotel ran short and had to reorder new ones which took a few business days to be shipped. The only guests which were given the two towels were the ones who's rooms had the missing towels in the first instance. The parents drinking alcohol and "congregating in the parking lot was discouraged by our staff and the parents were made aware of licensed drinking establishments near the hotel.

I hate to be negative, but I believe that when a place is good, tell people and when a place is poor make sure that they are aware of it. The previous reviews of the Tulip Inn were done in Sept. of 2008 and earlier. I can't believe that people actually think this place is at best, even good. A lot of I-5 traffic noise. The rooms are somewhat clean. Repairs need to be done in the rooms. Breakfast is a Joke! . After looking at it, we decided to go out for breakfast. On our return (well before check-out time) we found that the bed had been stripped, the bedding was in a pile on the floor, "that's pretty sanitary" and the bathroom had been stripped of all towels etc. We were unable to wash up after breakfast. When I complained, the response was, (well that's the way we do it here) This place is more suited to transient workers, as there appear to be many staying here. We will never stay here again. Thank's for reading.

a very nice, clean motel. The owner was really friendly and suggested interesting places for our hiking. Will come back again if I happen to be in the area.

We've been staying at the Tulip Inn once or twice a month for a couple of years now and enjoy our stay there very much. It's clean and decorated nicely with comfortable beds. The management is always friendly and helpful. The small refrigerator and microwave is helpful for us as is the continental breakfast. Very satisfied.

We were a little worried about it not being a hotel chain hotel, but that was needless. It was great! Clean & quiet. Had a very small selection for their continental breakfast, but didn't partake.

Four of us went down to Washington last weekend for a shopping trip and stayed at The Tulip Inn on Friday and Saturday night. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. We liked that there was a fridge and a microwave in the rooms and that they offered pastries and coffee in the lobby in the morning. The pipes were a bit loud when someone in a nearby room was showering, but overall it was very quiet considering the hotel is just off the highway. The price was very reasonable. I'd definitely stay there again.

Excellent Choice. I was going to be participating in the Tulip Pedal bike ride in La Conner and stayed here for one night. I was more than pleased. It doesn't have all the fancy amenities, but the room was gorgeous, clean and comfortable. It had a kitchenette, so I was able to fix my breakfast the next morning. I liked having the wireless internet and the wonderful homemade chocolate chip cookies provided by the owners. They have a complimentary continental breakfast, but I didn't partake. The owners are sweet people and the whole staff was friendly and helpful. I definitely will be staying there again when I'm in the area.
