6/10 Good

Budget hotel
The room was clean when I moved in. I stayed for 6 nights. The staff does not give you clean towels or take out your garbage unless you put a clean room sign out. The hotel does not have cable, nor satelite TV. The rooms have TVs but they do not receive anything. The room did have air conditioning that worked. There is no onsite parking. As I flew in I did not need any.

Disappointed Albertan
Not what I was expecting, there was no TV available and we're supposed to use our own net flix account to link to tv. No explanation as to how to do this. No parking except 2 hour parking on street. No hair dryer. Karrie staircases made it difficult get suitcases up to rooms

4/10 Fair

Pricey for what you get.
I booked this hotel for a 1 night stay because most of the reasonably priced hotels were sold out. (Jazz festival & Grey cup weekend). The location was good, great restaurants and coffee shops close by, $10 Uber to the Harbourfront. The room did not look like any in the pictures, it was small, weird smelling, and the screen to the window was ripped open. On the plus side, we had a small fridge, microwave, and the air con worked great. There's a tv, but no cable, you have to use your own media app such as Netflix/Crave, and that worked fine.

Commons Inn Halifax - BEWARE - scam
We booked 2 rooms for 3 nights (total 6 room nights) for our technicians who travelled in from Moncton, July 11-13, 2022. Upon arrival one of our technicians went to his room and found that it was filthy (bed was badly stained, there appeared to be mold, furniture was damaged), not at all like the photos posted on The hotel manager refused to provide another room and also refused to refund ANY of the 6 nights that had been pre-paid. could not assist and said that refunds are solely within the authority of the hotel. We called the hotel and asked to speak to manager. Front desk (lady named Min) said that manager was not available and refused to give managers name.

Extremely disappointed!
The worst experience ever. The staff did not care about our concerns. They let workers in our room while we were out without telling us they’d be in there! Shower was filthy. No cable television. Didn’t tell us they had a parking lot until our second night there so we had to fight for parking on the street. We had to move our car every two hours to avoid tickets!
