This is not a 5-star luxury hotel with hoity-toity amenities. But this is a great little inn centrally located with amazing customer service in a world where that seems to be lacking.
Pros: great location--literally 5-10 minutes near Citadel and about 15 minutes to downtown/boardwalk; we loved the colorful houses in the nearby neighborhoods. Great free breakfast (toast, pastries, fruit, pb, jelly/jam, butter, 3 kinds of cereal, juice, milk, coffee, tea--trust me it fill you up!), two upstairs patios, clean, simple rooms that come with clean bathrooms, comfortable beds, great-working a/c, microwave and mini fridge, and a staff so ready to help you. All of this at a very affordable price for those of us who seek adventure on a budget. Hotel is completely NON-smoking!
Cons: no elevator = lots of stairs, central location does require a walk back UPHILL almost the entire way from downtown (but such a lovely walk), not a huge selection of restaurants in close proximity (but there are some!). Bathroom only had a shower with no tub (if that matters to you). And, yes, there is a unique smell to the room which I always equate with old house smell.
Although this is not a perfect little inn, I am giving it 5 stars for the value and location. I plan to come back to Halifax and I will be staying with the Commons Inn again!
