We had arrived at the Commons Inn for 3 nights. The hotel is located 20 minute to the city (I am a bit slow walker so an average of 15). The staff is very friendly – the owners are Koreans and they had different people working in reception. Housekeeping service isn’t regular but the housekeeper is friendly. Breakfast is included – cereal, muffins, toast, juice (not real nor fresh juice), tea and coffee, nothing spectacular (breakfast room is in the basement)
We had a standard clean and basic room with a fridge and it was located near the lobby and across the street from the café. The bathroom was okay though there was no hot water at night. The owner had informed my partner that the café located across the street is popular with druggies. There are no other restaurants or shops in the area – everything was in the city centre.
The building itself is in good condition but it was freezing cold in the hallway. There is free communal internet in the reception area.
We stayed here since we were on a budget and it was the cheapest accommodation that provided private room & bathroom ($92.97 including tax per night). A taxi ride from the city centre is $4 (worth the money at night time). The 2nd most cheapest accommodation we could find was the Radisson ($119 plus tax per night).
It was okay but for 1 night, I would stay in the city centre due to safety, convenience and location.
