Breakfast is good, but if live one night they will not offer you bottled water. If you arrive late when convince store all closed, you can't buy toothbrush in hotel

"Good value"
We chose this hotel because the price and location were good. Able to walk to everything we wanted to see by the waterfront plus the Scotiabank centre as we were attending the CCMA awards there. Hotel is older. Another reviewer said it was like an English Inn. This is a good description. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Our room was small but clean with a microwave and a fridge. Continental breakfast was fairly good. Will return.

"Will Not Return"
This motel was horrible. Staff was friendly but it doesn't make up for unwashed linen or HORRIBLE bed. The location is very sketchy, and we didn't dare walk around even during the day. The worst thing about this motel is the nonexistent housekeeping. Once I got in bed, I noticed a strange smell...I sniffed the bed sheet and realized the sheet hadn't been changed---DISGUSTING!!! The shampoo bottle was also half full...so I'm assuming they recycle everything (nothing wrong with that, but at least fill it up so the guests won't notice, geez). But by far, the bed was the worst...it creaks and dips with EVERY move and the mattress we slept on must've been 30 yrs old cuz u could see the curvature in the middle too. The breakfast was mediocre (good toast & yogurt, tasteless mini muffins, great fruit salad, and milk/coffee/ON) but they have a big dining area and a separate common area with TV. Parking was good. Printing will cost you $0.75 per page (ridiculous). We were only there for one night, thank goodness. NEVER staying here again!!!

Nice stay and value for the money, but walls very thin. If you don't have a white noise app on your phone (or anything to drown out exterior noise), you will not sleep! Other than that, staff was very nice and helpful. Room was comfortable, location good for downtown.

We selected hotel because of its location close to downtown. We just wanted one night of stay. We did not have much interaction with staff. However, room beds were not in good shape. The headbard was broken and it used to make noice everytime I turn side.Washroom was very basic , there were some apparent temporary fixes. TV quality was basic with cords hanging . Breakfast was ok with rerasonable stuff. Interestly , there was mounted camera in the breakfast area.

We enjoyed our stay at the Commons Inn. Friendly staff, they helped me carry my bags up 2 flights of stairs (no elevators). Decent breakfast menu. Interesting neighborhood, away from the downtown touristy areas but not too far; kind of artsy and young; decent restaurants within walking distance.

"A Step into the Past with a British Flair"
We stay at The Commons Inn regularly when in Halifax. We like its old-world character, its quirky design and it's location. Only a few minutes walk to the Halifax Common a bit longer to center city. Rooms are adequate in size with old-style furniture and modern bath. TV and Wi-Fi are included. A special bonus is the free parking and breakfast. Agricola Street, where the hotel is located, is being gentrified and has many good eateries within a minute or two from the hotel. Prices of rooms are very reasonable.

"Miserable hotel in a bad part of town."
This has got to be the worst hotel I've stayed at in North America. At 7am every morning the woman at front desk would start her shift. I had the unfortunate luck of getting a room down the hall from the front desk and could hear every word being said at the front desk because of her voice projection. Tried to get a room on another floor but they would not accommodate. Smallest hotel room I have ever seen. Woken up every morning at 7am because of the chatter at the front desk. It might as well have been in my room.

"Not bad but more like a hostel than hotel"
While I didn't have any of the clenliness or bed bug issues mentioned in other reviews I will say that during the two nights of my stay the hotel definitely seemed more like a higher end hostel than anything. There was a lot of noise and door slamming until approximately 2am some of which appeared to be by staff based on the types of conversation. Overall it's an adequate hotel for a fairly good price but nring earplugs unless you're a really deep sleeper.

We did not notice that hotel charges full charge even if we were not pleased with it and decided not to stay. In order to be able to cancel with no charge we would have to cancel same time as we booked. We travel all over the American Continent and reserved the hotel with our Visa Card many times. As it is hard to say what is the condition of the hotel before seeing it we usually ask to see the room before we commit. Most of the times it is satisfactory but sometime - if we were not satisfied - we were never charged the full amount. Cancellation fee perhaps but not the full rate. So we would recommend that our fellow travelers pay lots of attention to cancellation fees especially in our home province of Nova Scotia. Unfortunately. Thank you.

""KEIRAN" STAFF ARE HOTEL'S ASSET!!"
Keiran was the first employee we met and he was the reason we decided to stay. Being visitors to Halifax I will admit I was a little uneasy when driving through the neighbourhood to the hotel. He answered our questions and added some history about the neighbourhood. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, had a great sense of humour and reassured us that we would be safe walking/travelling through the neighbourhood. Keiran is an absolute asset to your hotel staff! I'd highly recommend doing whatever is necessary to keep him as a member of your staff!

"Average hotel, not worth over $100"
Stayed for a night with family. Close to Halifax attractions. No need to drive around, just by walk you can cover the attractions. Beware, no elevator and if you have room in 3rd or 4th floor, it will be troublesome to carry the luggage. My room had a big glass arch on the topside which was a nuisance while sleeping. There was no way to block out outside light. Breakfast is ok with few options.
