Great National Commons Inn Hotel, Cork
Great location; tired hotel
Hotel was nicely located near Cork and Blarney castle. Made for a nice opportunity to explore the area without too much driving distance. The hotel is tired and needs a few upgrades and should include breakfast in the room rate.

Clean but poorly staffed and inconvenient shower
Clean and spacious. Shower was handheld only with no place to put it so that it would stay overhead- not very convenient. Our payment info had another credit card number (last four digits only) listed other than ours somehow which was strange, not sure how that happened but we had them fix it. We were unpleased when after being told the night before by reception that our reservation included breakfast, the hostess at breakfast the next morning told us it did not and confirmed with reception that it did not include it after all.

Easy access to highway
It's a convenient location to get on the highway to Cork or Blarney.

Hotel was not as well kept as hoped though the food was good and breakfast was comfortable. Also one of our rooms smelled like smoke tho it was a non-smoking room.
