“Unbelievable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Our mouths flew open when we saw our suite! It was so cleverly decorated and designed. No detail went unnoticed right down to the heating lamp when you get out of the shower to the make up mirror and remover pads. It was fun to stay here. I travel a lot for business and have never stayed at such a clever place! I will not give it away for you but staying here at least once I'm a lifetime is must! The staff was friendly and attentive and the cafe adorable!

We checked into "the Lodge" room and have been more than pleasantly surprised - the realistic decor really transports you to "the Lodge". The room sounds very much like the Squam description.
The indoor pool and rock waterfall spa are great. The hot tub is really hot - feels great.
The food at the restuarant was good and the wine selection was decent (we're foodies and wine snobs).
The hotel staff goes out of their way to be pleasant and helpful - you can tell that they really like working here. Robin at the front desk is especially friendly. And Fletcher the Cat is a very cool resident.
The Spa today was great. Small but they have all of the amenities - shower, lounge areas, sauna, etc. The spa services were very relaxing and the mani/pedi was great - and reasonably priced.
We will definitely come back to this property if we are in the area again.

Room Tip: Get one of the suites - it's so worth it.

The Squam suite was very rustic. The room was decorated with moose antlers and wood log furniture. There are 3 sections to the room- the entry with a bathroom and extra sink off to the side; then thru a wooden screen door into a large bedroom with a TV and gas fireplace; then thru a doorway to a smaller area with a small refrigerator, separate minibar, TV and daybed that could sleep 2. This section could be closed off with curtains for some privacy. Perfect for a family. The free in room wifi worked well. The only reasons I did not give this inn an excellent were a disappointing gym and a small, unexciting selection for breakfast. We did not take advantage of the restaurant or bar, so I can't comment on those.

Stayed in the Squam Suite August 6th for two nights thanks to a Groupon deal. Everything written about this place is about accurate, Behind the reception desk at check-in was Robin. She was extremely friendly and caring and gave my wife and I a good vibe about this place. Our suite was indeed unique. The bed was very comfortable.
I would have rated this palce better had it not been for what they offered at breakfast, their pool and gym. This place is an inn and therefore should offer a true breakfast and not an opportunity to buy one. The gym was in a closet. The pool was small and smelled of clorine. They would be better served to remove the pool, and enlarge the gym. We ate at two of their restauranted off-site and recommend the Italian Farmhouse. It reminded be of the NCL Italian restaurant (cruise line). Please assume that is a compliment.

I found The Common Man Inn on a groupon discount, and am so happy that I did! We stayed in the Camp signature suite and were blown away. The decor made us feel like we were on a cozy camp home! The size of the room was phenomenal and all of the furnishings were comfortable. One of us tried out the spa for a massage and left very pleased! Between the pool, hot tub, and jacuzzi in our room we both slept like babies!

We went to the Italian Farmhouse for dinner and would strongly recommend it, only 6 minutes down the road. We are so pleased and only wish we could stay longer!

My husband and I stayed in the CAMP suite at the Common Man Inn & Spa. It was definitely the most unique hotel room we've ever stayed in and we loved it. It's a very inviting and warm atmosphere--we played checkers in the lobby and relaxed in some of the many chairs and couches that are just about everywhere! The entire staff at the C Man was super friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is lacking (but acceptable) but the breakfast you can buy is delicious, reasonably priced, and filling (thank you, Jenny)! There is a bike shop literally on the property, so if you'd like to go biking they have what you need. Keep in mind that the best places to bike are at least 20 min. away on I-93 (but it's a beautiful, scenic drive). Try the ice cream at Frosty Scoops (also on property). Warning: the portions are HUGE!!! Foster's Boiler Room (on-site restaurant) is pretty good, as well. The service was good, the prices acceptable, the atmosphere was great and the food was okay/good. We didn't use the spa, but we checked out the area. The "fitness room" was lacking, and is about the size of a walk-in closet. There were a couple of machines crammed into the room as well as some free weights and balance balls (which there was hardly any space to use). Thankfully, we were planning to get our exercise outdoors on this trip.The pool is small and maxes out at 5 ft. but the teens that were in it seemed to be having fun. There were two hot tubs also in the room.

Really, it's the homey lodge-like environment that made this place special, in my opinion, and hence the 5 stars. C Man has a very well thought out rustic theme which is probably particularly cozy in the winter. I think that the regular rates are a little steep for an inn that is in the middle of nowhere (from a city-dweller's perspective), but there are some things to do in the area and its a great place for a romantic weekend getaway. We will be back if they ever offer another Groupon!

Room Tip: Camp, Squam, and Lodge suites are romantic for couples, but all of the other "regular" roo...

I live in NH and we often meet friends and family at our favorite half-way mark, The Common Inn, and Foster's Boiler Room restaurant. This Inn is the site of an old factory and the restaurant actually was the boiler room. Very good food; great servers; very helpful and fun. Always have a good meal. The Inn is very rustic for those looking for a good ole New England experience. It is very close to I-95, very easy to get to and close to many of NH's lakes and mountains.

The Day Spa was recommended to me by my cousin at a dinner one night at Foster's.
I have been to many spas, had many massages, facials, and treatments, even at Spa Resorts in Vegas and Scottsdale and Puerta Vallarta. This Spa is right up there with the best.

Atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, many treatments available. Will be going back soon for a spa day with the same cousin that recommended the spa to me.
