So the fridge froze everything I put into it. Sorry BW but I did not expect that. When I told the staff they informed me that the owner said that I am supposed to check the temperature setting when I use it. Really? Ok. So I am supposed to know that this fridge doesn't keep stuff cold it freezes it. Would have been simple and nice to just pay me the 15.00 for my veggies. Oh, the maid took a nail file. Not a big deal in the whole scheme of life but the front desk staff response was - 'our maids don't do that'. Typical I guess. It is the customer's fault in both cases or I'm just lying. Apparently it is better to say it is my fault than a simple apology - at minimum.

AC/heat doesn't work well. Push buttons all you want. It doesn't change a thing.

Building is outdated. So is the inside. Breakfast is just OK. Check-in took over 30mins since the lady was on phone talking and talking.

great pool, maybe just a little more care getting it ready for the next day.

Room is somewhat small but comfortable and clean. Convenient location. Breakfast is cleaned and good.

This particular Best Western exceeded all expectations, insomuch that we're now seeking out Best Westerns whenever we travel! The room was welcoming, clean, and happy...with all the amenities a traveler needs (refrigerator, microwave, coffee/tea, etc.). The breakfast was way better than anticipated. Here, they offer even more than the usual continental breakfast, such a nice variety!!! The environment also was very peaceful and warm...would definitely will stay here again, when next in the area. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

The breakfast is even better than before. Hot eggs and bacon and hash browns. Yogurt. And of course starches. Room was quite spacious and very clean

Everthing was as seen on their web page. Called to alter our rooms & the staff was very helpful! During our stay any requests were addressed immediately. The morning breakfast was good and nicely done. Great place to stay.

Nice clean room with kitchenet would recommend room to anyone

Older but kept up. Far enough from the interstate to be fairly quiet. Walk to DQ, Arby's. Good Chinese restaurant next door. A few miles to the Burlington Outlet Mall.

We stayed overnight after a wedding. Room was spacious, but the free breakfast didn't have much variety. Everything was clean with no signs of wear and tear, and the bed was comfortable. But you won't be awed.

Good for the price. Only negative I'd say was the constant train noise

We went to Burlington primarily for Black Friday shopping. This hotel is well located. It is within a few minutes drive to the shops like walmart, best buy, Cascade mall, etc. Hotel offers free breakfast and staff are nice and friendly.

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent. Room was a hotel room but clean and quiet.

Clean, good location and nice breakfast. Some train noise but not bad. Staff was courteous and helpful. No resort for sure, just a nice place to spend the night.

The hotel is located on a busy street, noisy and uncomfortable. The room's carpet is moisturized with dirt and makes breathing difficult. Nice Samsung TV and that is it. I won't recommend this hotel to anyone. Note: Their continental breakfast is surprisingly above average

We stopped for a night in Mt. Vernon at Best Western. Hotel room was clean and pleasant, staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The hotel entrance road is a bit obscured by the road to the neighboring Lowes store and its parking.

We stayed in room 108 last night. After reading some reviews,I was not expecting much.The mattress was great and seemed new and the shower area looked newly upgraded.

We only needed a place to spend the night, and this one was clase at hand, clean, maintained. We had little time for TV...the four thick pillows looked nice on the bed and were good props for TV watching and book reading, but I was glad I had my own towel to roll and use as a low pillow, or I would have had serious neck/headache issues. I do not do well with the thick fluffy pillows and always appreciate a choice in thick or flat ones. The continental breakfast was nice and got us on our way.

This place is your average motel. They still have tube tv's in the rooms, but at least they have cable. The selection of food for breakfast is pretty good.

Dear Anonymous on Orbitz, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay with us. We are sorry to hear about the problem you had with the refrigerator freezing your veggies. While it is the guest's responsibility to double check the setting on the refrigerators, things do happen to appliances as thermostats go out and items can be either frozen or not cooled. (We had maintenance check the refrigerator. They located the problem that was causing items to freeze and have fixed resolved for the next guest. We apologize for the inconveniences and frustrations that this caused and are in the process of making contact with you.) As for the missing nail file, we are looking into this matter. While we do currently have a wonderful group of housekeepers working for us and have had no reports of any missing guest belongings, the taking of anything in a guest room is not acceptable and bears looking into. We hope you will give us a second chance the next time you are in Mount Vernon. Sincerely, Management & Staff BW College Way Inn
