Our basement room was pretty sketchy - the window was level with the ground/parking lot. We double and tripled checked that the window was locked every time we left the room.

We considered calling around to find a different hotel but in the end stayed there. The bed was alright

I stayed at the Commons Inn in October 2018 for 3 nights. It's a basic hotel (room was small but fine). Very friendly staff in a great neighborhood. Easy walk to local restaurants within 2 blocks and to downtown center. Staff went out of their way to suggest places to eat and got

Stayed 1 night while passing thru Halifax. The room, the interior of the building and the breakfast were very disappointing. It is definitely not a 3-star hotel. Obviously, the owners do not care much about the quality of the place. Maybe closing it soon?

Room was dark. Bathroom needed a variety of repairs (toilet seat broken; drain plug broken; ceiling air vent hanging down and couldn't be put back in place; spider and its web at bottom of shower). No place to hang up clothes. Middle drawer in 3-drawer chest had no knob. Shower w

Is the parking on site secure?
It's a little sketchy. The lot has limited spaces and is between the inn and the next building, like a city home's tucked away driveway. We were a bit wary of leaving our car out there given the neighbourhood, but nothing happened. The inn office overlooks the lot.

Whats yhe best way to travel to this lication from the airport
Late response to your question, but public transit is an option too. Bus stop is right at the airport, and can take you right downtown. Early AM service as well. About a 15min walk from the downtown stop to the Commons Inn. Bus trip took just over an hour.
