Street parking, yikes!
It's inexpensive, service at the front desk was great. Didn't care much for street parking, so plan ahead if you are visiting during high season.

Nice and close to Gus's pub. Great for bands and folks wanting to see a show.

Great value at this clean and quiet little hotel.

2/10 Poor

We prepaid but based on our experience the week before we opted to find better accommodations. This place is a dump and is not a two star hotel. The Holiday Inn at the Halifax airport is rated as a two star hotel. The Commons Inn is not where near the calibre of the Holiday Inn Express. Seriously Expedia should not represent this hotel and I doubt I will use Expedia again.

2/10 Poor

On the front step empty beer bottles, wine bottles and a gin bottle along with hundreds of cigarette butts on the sidewalk and lawn. Look out the window to the alley and watch the junkies shoot up. There is no internet and no cable TV Overall this hotel is grossly over-rated at a two star facility. It is old and worn out in a questionable area of the city. Perhaps the worst hotel we have booked in the last 45 years. It was so bad we left a day early on a prepaid room.

Personal service at check in was amazing. Owners need to address issue of parking. Perhaps they could contact near by businesses to see if they would accommodate after hours parking.
