Room service is available only from 4:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. No refund if you do not take the breakfast. Other than that the bed was very comfortable.

Everything about the Common Man is exceptional! I had to reschedule my stay by phone several times and each time the Front Desk was very helpful and kind. We stayed in the Cascade Suite and was amazed at the luxury feel we got as soon as we walked in. The room was immaculate. We had the continental breakfast each morning... More

We spent two nights over Father's Day weekend and truly enjoyed our stay. I booked two rooms, one for our family of three and another for my parents. Both rooms were large and had offered great views of the river. The beds were so comfortable. The staff was overly accommodating as we were in town for a family funeral, anything... More

We stayed Memorial Day weekend and had a wonderful experience. Our room overlooked the river and was spacious and comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating when we had a special request. The highlight of our stay was meeting Alicia at the bar, she introduced us to her special sangria recipe, both red & white, Overall a special place!

What a peaceful place to visit. Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We spent great time watching the river on the stone patio by the river. In the morning we took our coffee out there and sat for an extended period of time. The only negative would be that the coffee was weak both times we... More

Great Hotel, Nice Rustic Feel. Friendly staff. I've stayed in a couple of the 2 story studio style rooms and would recommend them for a get-a-way. The food at the attached restaurant will keep you coming back if the rooms don't! Plus amazing cookies in the lobby!

The Inn sustains the aesthetic of the Common Man restaurants... Colorado Lodge meets New England Victorian? Very comfortable, with superb bedding, bath, toiletries, service. Great bar and restaurant as well, all with the bones of the mill intact.

Let's face it, if you need to be in the Claremon, NH area, like I recently found myself, there are not a lot of lodging options. You're either going to Springfield, VT or Concord NH for chain hotels or one of the many small towns for local lodging. But fear not, The Common Man Inn in Claremont gives you the... More

After traveling through Vermont, we were headed home to NH and thought we'd spend the night at the Common Man Inn. The lobby is so very welcoming and cozy. We later learned that the wainscoting was actually made from old doors salvaged from a home in Portsmouth that was to be demolished. Very clever and beautiful. Our room was very... More
