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 The bed was incredibly old and lumpy and the room just felt old and outdated, even though it maintained some of the […] old New Hampshire feel from the lobby and halls.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.

"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!

I spent a long weekend at the Common Man Inn and Spa and was pampered from the time I arrived to the time I had to leave. The rooms are incredibly beautiful, comfortable and clean. We had our own fireplace! I took advantage of the Spa and got a massage from Boris who was wonderful. He even helped me out with foot issue I was having! I also had a new hair style in the salon. You have to try the waterfall hot tub and the restaurant was awesome. I can't wait to return.
"Guest at Wedding"
05/19/14 Sunnydaze59 North Chelmsford, Massachusetts
We attended a wedding over the weekend. The ceremony was held at the Green House with the reception at the Common Man. First of all it was a beautiful day, sun shining (a little hot in the greenhouse) The grounds at the greenhouse site were very nice. After the ceremony, we ventured to the Common Man where the reception was going to start at 5:00 pm. We arrived very early and decided to go in and sit at the bar for a drink. Unfortunately, the staff refused to serve us, told we had to wait until the wedding venue bar opened up. Really??? It's not like it was open bar, refusing to serve paying customers, first time this every happened to us at a wedding venue. We were very embarassed as other patrons where in the bar at that time. Pretty aweful and demeaning experience. The wedding food was your typical banquet hall food. It was Buffet style and the food was cold, not warm cold! I even watched them replace two trays of food while in line and those trays of food were cold as well. Bottom line, I would never visit this establishment again, due to the our first experience of being refused to be served at the bar prior to the reception, but the food topped it off. Also bathroom could use some sprucing up, it was dusty and dirty. The wedding itself was fun as it is always whenever we get together with family and friends. Unfortunately the venue was lacking.
"Don't stay when there's an event going on!"
05/09/14 Erin v
I drove three hours to spend Mother's Day weekend with my family while my husband attended a nearby board meeting. Although the Inn has a charming aesthetic and nice amenities none of that mattered when the event they booked in the event room began. The throbbing music made it impossible to sleep. When I asked the front desk about it there was nothing she could do and I was told it would persist until midnight. Although she said they'd ask them to turn it down it remained loud and pulsing. From now on IF I come back I will definitely find out if there is an event during my stay. Too bad. Not a great way to spend Mother's Day weekend. It would have been nice if the front desk offered a spa or restaurant gift card as a way of validating my complaint...but I was just told there wasn't anything they could do.
"Upscale yet rustic"
05/03/14 Special_Deluxe New York City, New York
This is one of those rare places that the more you look, the more you see. There are unique crafts and antiques in every corner, yet somehow it does not appear cluttered or dusty. I wish I could achieve that at home! It conveys an upscale atmosphere while being so comfortable you could kick off your shoes and read a novel in one of the antique chairs in the lobby. Another word I debated using in the title of this review was "spacious". The room was one of the most spacious hotel rooms I have ever been in. Ours was one of the rooms that allowed pets, although we did not bring our dog. It had two queen-sized beds, a HUGE dresser, a table, an extra counter with a sink outside the bathroom, and a fireplace. Yes, a working propane fireplace! There was a ton of space around all that furniture. I took several photos to post with this review because they should help where my descriptive words fall short. The spaciousness of this facility has it's roots in being a huge factory "way back when" that made wooden tongue depressors, paint stirring sticks and ice cream spoons. Are you old enough to remember wooden ice cream spoons? They were probably made here! The Inn has a spa that I did not try, but I suspect it is very good. I spoke with the spa staff on my way to their exercise room and they seemed very knowledgeable. I walked by a hot tub and/or small pool on my way to the exercise room. I was not paying attention at the time so I cannot really offer details about the hot tub and/or pool. The exercise room was the only part of the entire facility that I would say was small and skimpy. There were treadmills and Nordic tracks stacked in a row on both sides of a narrow room. The head of the room had some hand weights, but no bench. There was not enough room to do any floor work if you are into interval training/body weight exercising. If you just want to get your heart rate up with a treadmill, then their exercise room will suffice. There's too much good stuff to eat in their on-premise restaurant! I think I will talk about that in a separate review. For the hotel, the continental breakfast is good. I ordered an extra breakfast that was beyond the continental offerings. It was very reasonably priced. I had eggs Benedict with sauerkraut(!). Don't ask me how, but the combination worked. Without exception the staff were all friendly. They seemed genuinely friendly and happy to be working at that place, not the kind of friendly where they were living in fear of losing points towards some award. I want to thank Gary (one of the night staff) for letting me wander around the lobby at 5:00AM and take a lot of the timed exposure photos you will be looking at here.

Hello- Stayed at the Inn a week ago. Loved the place and art/photos. Would have appreciated if they had asked if I had pet allergies (which I do). When I checked in for an event I was just given the room. Please ask people this in the future. I would recommend your facility to all but adding that question at checkin could really help people like myself.
