Be advised. You could fit a whole animal through the crack under the door, at least! Also, the "actual size" make up remover pads seem to have been removed from our amenities. The diagonally folded Kleenex that separated the cups from the dresser made me feel that they were applying some effort, but after trying to fold one from the...

The facility is kept very clean. Bathrooms are shared but people are courteous so no big deal. Great location. Most comfortable bed and pillow I've slept on in a motel. Slept like a baby.

I booked the College Inn online and I was a little skeptical about staying there because it was so inexpensive. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small but it was clean, comfortable and really quite quaint. OK, so the bathrooms and showers were down the hall. We didn't mind a bit. The breakfast was really good....

This hotel advertises itself as European; but with bathrooms down the hall it's more basic than that. Hotel was realtively clean and neat, but old with with worn out furnishings. The price is right, the location great but old and old fashioned.

I've stayed at The College Inn several times over the years and my experience has gradually gone from pretty good to horrible. I stayed there a few weeks ago and should have insisted on my money back (which I've never done) because it was so bad. When I arrived at 10:00 the clerk met me at the door, shoved the...

This hotel is a great place to stay if you are planning on hanging around Seattle's University District. We went for a concert and the hotel's location was ideal. Lots of restaurants and bars in the area. The hotel itself is clean.The rooms are well appointed; however, all rooms on a floor share common washrooms, which is a definite minus....

My husband and I arrive to The College Inn and we loved it from the first moment. It was just like going back in time! While we were waiting for 3pm (checking time) we went to the bar around the corner to have a beer and something to eat... great place!! Went back to the Inn, and checking was easy.......
