Reviewed 15 September 2013

We arrived late evening and were very tired after driving straight to Halifax from Toronto. When we got to the room it had a terrible odor and we discovered why when we took off our shoes. The floor was really damp to the point of being wet. It was after midnight and after checking the sheets (which were not the whitest) we reluctantly laid on the bed with our clothes on.
The bathroom was dirty and there was garbage left in the garbage bins from the former person who stayed there. When we told the front desk the next morning that we will not be staying the next night we were confronted with a very angry clerk who said that he could charge us because of their cancellation policy. If he would have charged us I would have then told him how I really felt about the stay we had. The lobby had guests and I was glad that I did not have to be rude in front of them. My husband is not a fan of B&B's and this experience had us running to the nearest hotel happy to pay extra for a good nights sleep. I would never recommend this dingy dirty place to anyone. They should be ashamed to take money from people.

Room Tip: book another place to stay

the commons inn ist located very centrally, only 10 minutes from downtown.
the staff is very friendly nd helpful.
the rooms are ok and clean, but there was no room service to make beds or change towels, so we had to change the towels ourselves at the reception.
parking just on the backside of the hotel.
breakfast is ok, not extraordinary.
i would go there again and can recommend it to anyone who is looking for a cheap and clean hotel in halifax downtown.
we did not have bed-bugs.

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. The call it the Hood on the other side of the street. Welfare and street gang area. Not good hotel for old people or families. Really very low end

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.
