Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff was lovely, and helpful... right down to booking cabs and storing luggage. The unbelievable feature is two massive rooftop decks flanking both sides of the Inn! You can enjoy your morning coffee on 1000+ square ' deck. located in a cool area (urban chic) and a walk away from downtown.(7-10min) What a great find!!... More

I found this great little hotel in Halifax for about 1/2 the price of other hotels. The price included parking and a nice continental breakfast. You could walk to the waterfront, but it would be quite a hike, maybe 30 to 45 minutes. It doesn't have a gym, or a pool, but that's ok. I never use those things in... More

Overall, I was pleased with my stay, just a couple cons (And not really negative ones.), but more pros than anything else. I volunteered for Hal-Con, so I wasn't in my hotel room a lot of the day, but I did take the time to explore around the place and I was happy. There is no elevator so beware of... More

On arrival the receptionist was efficient and reasonably helpful, we did not see this man again, instead a most unprofessional and unhelpful man took his place. Our room was on the second floor, the light at the entrance to the very small room was missing and the wires were hanging loose, the bathroom was adequate though the shower surrounds could... More

We arrived late evening and were very tired after driving straight to Halifax from Toronto. When we got to the room it had a terrible odor and we discovered why when we took off our shoes. The floor was really damp to the point of being wet. It was after midnight and after checking the sheets (which were not the... More

I stayed here with my son when we went to see Dalhousie in the Fall. I would never stay there again- the room was run down, the staff were rude and unhelpful. I did not find it particularly convenient to anything and the neighbourhood was sketchy at best! Blech!!

Mildew inside and outside on the shower door, soap scum on the bottom half of the shower door. No elevator. Huge chunk of hair on the bathroom floor. Shower head sprays everywhere because of hard water scale build up or broken head, small room, only very very low quality restaurants on the same street ( pizza style), very bad neigbourhood....

We stayed one night in Halifax and Commons Inn was worth what we payed for. we could not expect more, free carpark and wifi was ok, but the breakfast was not good at all. The location was good, as it was walking distance to downtown.
