I had the best time staying at this hotel! Friendly staff, wonderful accommodations and the best decor I've ever seen at a hotel. So comfy and inviting! I love the old school feel mixed with just and edgy vibe. Everyone was super helpful and kind! I never wanted to check out!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a few weeks in May and June, 2015. We chose the hotel to stay, because during that time, my husband had a surgery at a hospital near the hotel. The hotel is so wonderful, the guest services are great, the management is excellent. The entire service team had taken care of... More

This hotel was in the middle of Dinkytown and right next to the University of Minnesota. The hotel restaurant was very delicious. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. We had a driver from the hotel pick us up from a wedding we were attending and he was incredibly patient while were loading things into his van. The hotel decor... More

The first time we visited the rooms are nice but the customer service was terrible! When we asked to speak to a manager we were told there was not one on and we had to talk to the front desk staff. HMMM they were the problem. The next morning we where checking out and the Room Manager was the one... More

I was very impressed with all of the staff at the Commons. They were all friendly and professional. The room was clean and very quiet. Having Starbucks right downstairs was a big plus for me. The on site restaurant had good food and drinks. Try the turkey burger but be prepared for some heat. It was delicious! Hope to come... More

The hotel is located at the heart of the U of M campus right by Dinkytown, with lots of fun restaurants and bars just blocks away. Hotel has a very unique style that spans from the lobby to all of the hotel rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Commons has an amazing restaurant, The Beacon, with a... More

My son and I visited the University of Minnesota and chose this hotel because of its location right on campus. We had a wonderful experience. Riley at the front desk was full of great suggestions and information on what to see during our short visit. As a current student at the University, he also shared about his personal experience which... More

The Commons is right on the university campus and the green line. Can't get more convenient than that and to top it off this is a cool hotel that is a refreshing change from the big chains. The lobby decor is warm and cozy as are the rooms. We had a room right off the elevator and were a bit... More

This isn't the first time I've been compelled to write a review, but it's the first time that I've actually followed through -- that's how great my stay at The Commons Hotel was. The Commons Hotel hit all three Cs for me: clean, comfortable, and convenient. Clean. Fellow neatfreakers and slight OCDers rejoice -- this hotel is about as clean... More

I was really looking forward to staying at this hotel in Minneapolis. When I arrive at my room I really like the look. My mom was checking out the room and when she pulled back the sheets their was dried blood all over the corner of the bedding. Went downstairs and reported the issue. Manager came up and stripped the... More
