This was the worst hotel that we stayed in on our two week holiday to Canada. The hotel is very tired looking and in need of complete modernisation. The room was very small. There was a big hole in the arm of the sofa in the room, where the underlying sponge lining could be seen. The bathroom had not been properly cleaned. The reception staff were very noisy throughout the night, wakening another member of our party who was travelling with us and staying in another room. There was significant rubbish left under the desk in the room. Please avoid this hotel.

As it turned out, Commons Inn is well located - about 30 minutes from anything you want, from the waterfront, the Ferry, and attractions like brewery tours and Pier 21. Just 20 minutes from great shopping, and only about 15 minutes from the Citadel. Be sure to check out the best burgers in town (don't go for the ambience), at Gus' Pub. Don't miss our best meal of the vacation - EnVie for wonderful food which happened to be vegan. Floors were a bit sticky, and take the pillows down from the shelf instead of using the ones on the bed (too stiff) but overall, had a great stay here.

This is Over price for what it is and has to offer. It was a mistake on our part to go there, lesson learned. Very disapointing. Floor not leveled. Bathroom door can't close completly (1 inch gap near door frame ). You can ear people in parking lot.

The room I stayed in was in need of an update and make over. There was no closet and only 3 coat hooks on the wall to hang clothes, cracked tiles in the floor in the bathroom to go along with outdated fixtures and sound that was easily transmitted through the hotel walls and ceiling. This is a $60/night room at best.

It was a great hotel for the price! I have no complaints. The room was dated, but still nice and comfortable. Everything was clean. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was less than a 10 min walk to downtown Halifax, and it was a nice safe walk. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. On a side note, the hotel in the picture is not at all what the hotel actually looks like.

Located a block away from Halifax Commons (and Olympic class outdoor Speed Skating Oval) this inn, made from a couple of Victorian era townhouses, is quaint, old fashioned and a bit quirky. First of all, there is no elevators so those with mobility issues are out of luck. The journey to the complimentary breakfast area was like a quest through hallways and stairs before reaching breakfast.The rooms are small but neatly furnished. No shiny chrome cookie cutter rooms here. I found the room clean and neat, with plenty of hot water. I did not have a car but considering the area, old town, space at a premium, the fact there is any parking is amazing. The front desk is 24/7 manned with helpful staff.

We were given an upgraded room due to the slow time of year so the room was very comfortable and the queen bed was super. The bath was not clean as there was a used soap still in it. The heat was hard to control with a baseboard heater ( it was cold when we arrived). The staff were friendly and helpfull. The neighbourhood is not good and I did not feel comfortable walking in that area. The hotel breakfast was awful and the whole place needs updating. The price, however, was low so you get what you pay for.

The Hotel was not expensive and suited my brother and me travelling light through Canada.The Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast plentiful. The rooms were comfortable and for the price paid perfectly OK although not if one was aiming for a romantic stay.There is a great Delicatessan eating house opposite where the food was fantastic and good value. The milkshakes were heavanly but I had more than was good for me at my age. It is a short walk from the Citadel about 10/15 minutes and about the same from the town centre and bus stop for the Airport. A taxi from the Airport is 60/70 dollars and the bus is 3???

The hotel staff is exceptional, they helped me a lot on what to do during my short stay, I was also limited to my funds and was unaware of a security deposit u needed to leave, the staff was very understanding of this and I was able to leave my passport as a security deposit instead... I would stay at this hotel again!! Thank you for your hospitality we had a great time in Halifax :)

Would not repeat it. The room was clean but the ceramic tiles in the bathroom were moving under my feet. The street had noisy pedestrians all through the night. The hotel offers no amenities except a continental breakfast. The hotel is not suitable for the handicapped. It has a lot of stairs and no elevator. It is, however, close to the Citadelle and other points of interest.
