Clean and comfortable rooms, continental breakfast included and close to everything you will need to see and do. Wifi was sporadic but not a major issue and certainly did not mar our stay. Good place to stay and an affordable price.

My flight got cancelled and the inn was contacted to see if the owner would cancel my reservation out of courtesy as the person with most authority at the inn. I booked the room through Booking.com and was told that the owner checked her email several times a day. The people who answered the phone at the inn said they... More

Good value and continental breakfast offered. Friendly and helpful staff. Two minuses- no elevator, so travel light or arrange for help with large suitcases; WIFI did not work during our one night stay

To start off we never had housekeeping service. The front desk clerks were nice and I wanted to speak to the manager but was told he was out of town but I could call the assistant manager with my complaint. So I did, I had mentioned about housekeeping and then the noise and fight that had broke out on the... More

We stayed for 2 nights June 6/7 2016 at the Commons Inn. The location is good, the price is good, and the room was small but adequate...the only problem was we had mice in our room both nights. The first night we heard them, but did not see them, but it was very evident they were in the suitcase and... More

Great bed and breakfast type stay. Walking distance to the harbour, Citadel, etc. A self serve breakfast is provided in the morning and free parking! Have stayed here twice now and would stay there again!

We were in the city for a week of school. This place was exactly what we needed. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean and quiet accomodation. Easy to get around the city from this locale. Good secure parking.

I've stayed here a few times. It's good value and has all the basics - and that's all you need when you stay this close to the town centre. The staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast is okay, the rooms are clean.

We only needed a late night 1-night stay over in Halifax, so we decided to go with the cheapest place we could find. As long as it had a decently comfortable bed, we figured it'd do. First off we'd recommend requesting a room on a lower floor. The somewhat steep stairs to the fourth floor to our room we could've... More
