The feel and ambiance of this hotel was really nice. We got a nice sense of the history of the area and the lobby and hallways were decorated with antiques. The restaurant was nice as well. The condition of the rooms need improvement. The bed was incredibly old and lumpy and the room just felt old and outdated, even though it maintained some of the […] old New Hampshire feel from the lobby and halls. I would stay here again if the price were right, but you may get better accommodations elsewhere. Also, housekeeping never cleaned our room during our 2-day stay.

"Charming Wedding Stay"
09/29/14 chris j Greenfield, Massachusetts
My family and I stayed late September 2014 here for a Wedding on site. We stayed in a room called "Dixville Notch". It was fantastic. There was a mini-fridge, two bathrooms, a loft, and two tvs. Here is a brief rundown of Pros and Cons: PROS: Huge Rooms Very comfortable beds Sweet Pool/hot-tub/sauna Nice Inn Layout - lots of twists and turns, not boring hallways. Great photography on the walls Country-style without being Kitchy Great Breakfast chef and affordable food. Cleaning crew were all friendly CONS: Price ($285/night is steep anywhere - especially Plymouth,NH) Smell - apparently they are next to a waste treatment facility - don't hang out outside. Bees - There were 3 wasps in our room when we arrived - Maintenance fixed right away Wedding Food - Bad by even wedding food standards. Overall - staying somewhere for a wedding with kids can suck, this place made it suck a lot less. I would stay here again any time (as long as someone else was paying).
"Excellent Service, cozy historic feel"
08/19/14 38allovertheplace Ashburn, Virginia
I spent 9 days here at the Common Man Inn and Spa and will miss the coziness of this location. This Inn is placed within a historic Solon Manufacturing Building, this 60,000 sq ft building was converted to an excellent location while maintaining the history of the location. This INN has a "stay with family" feel and everyone from the front desk to the housekeeping makes you feel welcome. The fosters restaurant inside was a great place to end a long day, located in the boiler room is has a rustic feel with its large rustic beams and exposed brick. The food is some of the best you will find in Plymouth but the service provided by Emma and her team is exceptional. Emma makes you want to come back with her charm and attention to the details. This location does take pets in some rooms so those with hairy family members are welcome, there is a bike shop and ice cream shop on the property but if you need anything else you will need to head into town. If you are looking for a quiet getaway with a simple living feel this is your place.
"Perfect Wedding spot"
08/17/14 alik7 philadelphia, pa
I was brought to this hotel as part of a wedding. The charm and quirkiness perfectly suited the bride and groom and let to a really lovely weekend. I stayed in a suite that had plenty of space and a plethora of black bear art. The bed was very comfortable and one of the bathrooms was lovely. The other, i would call functional. With the exception of breakfast (included continental but upgrades to hot food for about $5), the food at I experienced was just ok. I was dealing with banquet setting which is always a challenge so I would not make a sweeping statement about all of the food. It is always a recurring theme in my reviews to point out amazing service and I just loved the people here. So friendly and so "new hampshire" if that is a thing. The front desk was extremely helpful and even the custodial staff seemed to be encouraged to engage with guests by making friendly conversation when appropriate. I never felt harassed, just very welcome. You could spend hours just walking around and looking at the photographs and reading the signs and learning about this very unique property.
"Charming Stay near Plymouth State University"
08/10/14 Susan M Washington, NJ
There are few options this close to Plymouth State University that are as charming and clean as the Common Man. It makes leaving your "baby" at college a much better experience! We have to drive 6 1/2 hours to take him to Plymouth State but when you arrive here you are treated so warmly and the Inn just reminds you why he chose this bucolic area. You don't feel like you are in another chain hotel/motel which could be anywhere....You feel New England in all its moose loving, warm flannel, log cabin looking best! TIP: BOOK EARLY....fills up fast for University events and upon booking tell them you have a student at Plymouth State for a DISCOUNT!
"Restaurant A Huge Waste of $$"
08/05/14 fiddleskiyogi Concord, New Hampshire
We took a couple of family members there for their anniversary. I had asked on the phone about the restaurant accomodations and was assured there were comfortable, quiet tables available and one would be saved for us. I was also assured though it is a hotel, they had a full tasty menu. Well, that didn't happen and that was only the beginning. The drinks were horrid. No one knew how to make a dry martini. The service was so-so. Worst of all was the food. Too salty. No fresh tasting veggies, etc. Limited choices. For the price not worth it.
"Worth a Trip Just to Stay Here!"
07/23/14 Pennsylvaniamom77 Pennsylvania, USA
We only spent one night here on a trip, but I wish we could have spent more time. Our room was huge and so home-like, as well as clean and beautifully decorated. There was a gas fireplace in the room, with an armchair in front of it to cozy up in, and a hidden flat screen TV above the fireplace. Since it was July, we just used the air conditioner, but it cooled the room quickly. There was even a small deck outside the room with a couple of chairs, so if you wanted to, you could sit outside and relax (though it overlooked a parking lot). The bed was comfortable and the entire night was very quiet and peaceful. The bathroom was quite roomy and there was a vanity and sink outside the bathroom as well, which is always a plus. The only thing I didn't like was we were given one bar of soap, and there was a shower/shampoo dispenser in the tub. I would rather have bars of soap than a dispenser. In the morning you can have a cold breakfast, or a warm one for an extra couple of dollars. I would rather pay two more dollars for the room and have a warm breakfast for "free". The gift shop at the hotel is lovely and the lobby is very homey and welcoming. The staff at the desk was very professional and friendly. I would most definitely stay here again!
"The best hotel/Spa in Plymouth"
07/22/14 StevaTheDiva Plymouth, New Hampshire
This is not your average Hotel/Spa, it boasts the beautiful old charm of an old time mill with all of the new features of today. The spa offer's so many different options you could spend an entire vacation in the spa alone. The hotel rooms are beautiful and spacious, there are even pet friendly rooms located on the first floor of the hotel. There is a pool and two hot tubs and even a sauna! As well as a restaurant and bar located on the grounds of the hotel. Do you have an electric car? This hotel offers a hook up to charge your car! How much more amazing could this hotel be. It is also within walking distance to downtown Plymouth and is less then 2 minutes from the highway. It is also 15 minutes to Newfound Lake, the most beautiful lake in New Hampshire. It is the perfect place to stay when visiting Plymouth New Hampshire.

My three best friends and I enjoyed a relaxing morning at the spa for manicures and pedicures. Frank took my reservations six months ago and was so sweet and polite. Heather was my assigned technician and she was polished and professional. She and the other staff did a beautiful job. Even though we did not stay at the Inn, if you are looking for some "me" time this is the spot!
"Great food, flexible and kind service"
06/24/14 CRBC22 Allentown, Pennsylvania
We ate an excellent meal here tonight. We especially appreciated the fact that, when we showed up with our small dog, the staff found a way to accommodate us outside on the porch rather than turning us away. The manager (Liz) was friendly, kind, and served us herself. Two of us enjoyed the fabulous steaks, while the other raved about her lobster mac & cheese meal. Traveling with a pet can be difficult and we suspected we'd have to subsist on takeout pizza. We really valued the staff going the extra mile.
"cozy, clean, and dog-friendly"
06/20/14 wishin4aTARDIS Bristol, New Hampshire
We've stayed here twice (both times just over a week) and returned for dining and spa visits since moving to the area. Most importantly, this place is clean! They use all sorts of environmentally friendly practices to keep the rooms & all public areas in great shape. The only negative we found was the pool area; it seems kind of worn, but it still felt and smelled clean. We loved being able to have our dogs in the room with us. The Inn even provided stainless bowls and cedar beds to make things easier. The breakfast is good...coffee/tea, juice, cereal, fruit, toast, pastries...but for a few bucks extra you can get huge, fluffy omelets on weekends (and holidays, I think). The Spa is light and friendly, yet opulent. Every detail has been considered. Ask about special pedicures! And, of course, Foster's is wonderful. We love the steaks, camp crackers, seasonal mussels, and save room for snowballs: homemade ice cream with hot fudge, toasted coconut, and macadamias. Or, pop over to the little ice cream stand - steps away - for every kind of ice cream treat (including puppy treats!) I've ever desired!
