I stayed in the Inn years ago and it was good. It seems to be under new ownership and things have slipped a bit. The room was clean but the television worked on the first night with the help of the desk clerk, but died on the second day.

I am not normally one to write a negative review, in fact I think this is the first. The room was very old and dingy, not lights on the ceiling. No space to hang clothes or even lay suitcase. No mirror. The beds were small and very uncomfortable, and there was a extremely noisy fridge in the room, which I... More

Commons Inn is in a quiet residential area of Halifax only 15 minutes walk to downtown. Our room was very small with very limited storage space. The bathroom was a reasonable size. There was a fridge and microwave in the room but no cutlery or crockery provided. Breakfast was good and included in the price with a range of quality... More

This Hotel is totally worth to stay. It is located at the cool North End in Halifax in walking distance to Gus' Pub etc. Don't expect too much but staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. Downtown is in walking distance too (15 min). Price is almost reasonable.

We arrived and then had to circle the building to find our way in, as there must have been at least 4 doors with signs directing us to keep going around the building. We booked our rooms on-line and found our booking all screwed up when we got there, although they did try to accommodate us and gave us a... More

After midnight the people across the hall had a huge fight. We weren't sure if we should call the police! Beds were small and uncomfortable. Bathroom was small but clean. Overall pretty dingy It kind of had a student ghetto feel to the place. The staff was pretty quirky. He said some odd, inappropriate things while we were waiting. The... More

Do not be tempted by the low price... it is not worth it! We booked the suite, for our family of four, which was two large rooms that had been joined together with the adjoining wall removed. It was as expected, although we noticed extensive water damage in the ceiling over the couch and lounge area. We went to diner,... More

Nice hotel , microwave and fridge in room very helpful. Within walking distance to the Citadel and downtown. The free continental breakfast each morning was great also! However not great for those with mobility issues steps to get in main door and if unlucky enough for a room on 3rd or 4th floor as there is no elevator. It is... More
