Best Western College Way Inn
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Mount Vernon
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Megan was our desk clerk on arrival and needs to be commended on her friendly efficiency. She put us in a second floor room (important in old motels like this one so as not to hear those above you), closer to the lobby. Her recommendation for a dinner restaurant was spot on: the Trumpeter.

Easy access to & from I-5, but could not hear any traffic. We did hear a train whistle both nights around 10:40. Brief enough, but would disturb your sleep in you're an early-to-bedder.

Breakfast was the usual fair at these places: cereals, apples & bananas, yogurt, make-your-own waffles, biscuits & gravy, and surprisingly decent muffins, bagels, and coffee.

No elevators to the 2nd floor, but many ground floor units available.

We were traveling from Oregon to Vancouver BC and decided to spend the night along the way. This hotel is an older place, but it is clean, comfortable and very close to I-5. It's also within walking distance to the collapsed I-5 bridge.

We found this place on Expedia and got an amazing rate on it through them. It was a last minute reservation. The people were nice. We got an upgrade without even asking. The room was spotless and comfortable. The landscaping was nice and the pool looked lovely. Continental breakfast was quite good also. We will definitely consider this our home when we are in Mount Vernon.

Room Tip: Some rooms had balconies and some didn't.

Although an older motel they have kept it clean and comfortable. The price was reasonable and the room was clean and quiet. Great spot for a good night's sleep. It was handy to the I-5 which made for easy on and easy off. Beds were comfortable and breakfast good.

Room Tip: The back side of the motel is the quietest.

Got a "non smoking" room. It smelled heavily of chronic smoke, and was really objectionable, and being on ground floor was not able to be aired out. Couldn't change as was the last room available.
otherwise clean bathroom, and beds, but door/window slides dirty.
Evening staff was pleasant.
After leaving room for a while, card key wouldn't work, (no it wasn't near a cell phone!), very annoying when that happens. Nice breakfast area offerings, very clean.

I have stayed at this Best Western three times. Each time I had excellent customer service, decent price paid, clean rooms, very comfortable beds. I like that it is right off of I-5. Yes it is a older motel, but it keeps the rooms and surrounding property clean. Pool isn't heated until June, and we were having a head wave in May. The Jacuzzi, I would like more powerful jets but it was warm with small bubble action.

We have stayed at this BW several times over the last few years. At almost half the price of other hotels in the area, this is an economical place to stay after a shopping trip to the States. Nothing fancy, but the beds are comfy and the place is clean...and shopping is near by. I wouldn't stay here for a romantic getaway, but it fills the bill for a good night's sleep after a long shopping trip.
