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... More

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... More
