I rented a room for a week on a trip here. The location couldn't be better, well within 20 minutes walking distance to the main sights and attractions of downtown and the water front, or a quick $6.00 cab ride. If you have a car they have free parking as well. I was pleasantly surprised by the room, I had... More

Our twin room didn't have any extra space but was adequate. The shower had plenty of hot water, and there was a variety of cold foods at the continental breakfast. Free parking was also a plus. We walked about 15 minutes to Quinpool Road and found a number of restaurants there.

We stayed two nights. The bed was comfy, a bit noisy late at night, quaint furnishings and friendly staff. Breakfast was very, very basic. Coffee was just plain bad. Go to Timmy's for breakfast! It doesn't look like a hotel from the outside, so a little hard to find!

We weren't expecting a lot since we didn't pay much for the room but were surprised at how clean and comfortable our stay was! Bed was extremely comfortable, we had a nice big tv to watch and an outside deck to relax on. The place is very dated but very clean! Would stay again!

The hotel was clean and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The room was not high end spiffy, but it was clean, the bed comfortable, and included a large screen tv, microwave and fridge. The free breakfast included bread, muffins, cereals, dress fruit, yogurt, kraft cheese slices and ice cream (didn't understand that but whatever). The hotel itself was a... More

Stayed at the Inn for 4 nights and it was an ok place to stay for the price. Nice neighbourhood, well situated for walking down to the harbourfront and breakfast was ok. The staff were helpful explaining about the town and they were flexible about check out time

This was our first trip to Halifax and the Commons Inn was recommended by a lovely lady at the tourist info booth in Peggy's Cove. Thank you so much, we really loved the place.The Inn was so quaint with antiques everywhere and a very comfortable room. This is an older building but great care was taken in keeping it up... More

This Inn was several blocks from the city center. We liked this because we like to walk. It was very quiet and both persons we dealt with were very helpful in giving directions, etc. This is not a fancy place but it is beyond basic. We thought it had been converted from a dormitory but were told that it was... More

We first picked this hotel to stay at because of the value (traveling in Halifax during peak season can be expensive, so we wanted to cut costs where we could). When we checked in, we were very pleased - the staff member who checked us in was very friendly and accommodating. When we got to our room, we found it... More

I am a Halifax resident and have not stayed at this hotel but was pleased to see the postive reviews. I pass this hotel en route home most evenings and have seen this hotel being renovated from time to time and hoped that it was making a go of it. Agricola Street is a street in transition in a positive... More
