I stayed here with my son when we went to see Dalhousie in the Fall. I would never stay there again- the room was run down, the staff were rude and unhelpful. I did not find it particularly convenient to anything and the neighbourhood was sketchy at best! Blech!!

Mildew inside and outside on the shower door, soap scum on the bottom half of the shower door. No elevator. Huge chunk of hair on the bathroom floor. Shower head sprays everywhere because of hard water scale build up or broken head, small room, only very very low quality restaurants on the same street ( pizza style), very bad neigbourhood....

We stayed one night in Halifax and Commons Inn was worth what we payed for. we could not expect more, free carpark and wifi was ok, but the breakfast was not good at all. The location was good, as it was walking distance to downtown.

This place is a hidden gem for the travellor who is looking for basic facilities. Rooms are not fancy but fabulous service and very clean. My room did have a fridge and microwave which was a nice addition. A good location for walking to most of the sites. Fruit salad at breakfast was outstanding and this is coming from someone...

The place is really beat up. The bed is terrible. The shower is tiny. All the furniture looked like it had been bought at garage sales and just shoved in the room. The "Continental Breakfast" was not even worth my time. Look I know what that means but could I get some cream cheese for my toast not kraft cheese...

it was a clean, lovely, cosy place to stay. Service was very good. I had a great sleep. It was very close to downtown and the Halifax Infirmary was in walking distance. I would definitely be happy to stay there again.

I stayed at this hotel recently with my family, and I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was very friendly, and my room was great given the price of the room. I had a comfortable sleep, and my room was very clean. The location was great seeing as it was just a bit away from downtown, and the free breakfast...

I had a trip which included landing in Halifax, driving to Saint John (NB) and going back to Halifax. I chose the Commons Inn because of its vicinity to downtown, and boy I was lucky! the rooms are great, breakfast is very nice to, a 5 to 10 minutes walk to downtown and the price was very good!

Going to Halifax last minute with no hotel reservation, we stayed at the Commons Inn. It was cheap, considering the rate of other hotels in Halifax. $95 with free parking. Check In was fast, aside from the guy at the desk forgot to give me my ID back (paid cash) and left it under the scanner. Called down to the...
