Checked in staff were ok. The parking was only for few cars, not much lights in the parking lot. I got a parking spot though. The carpet was sticky, the plugs were loose. The breakfast room was crowded and not much selection with flies. The server wasn't friendly, we felt we were not welcome. Got this room with hotel.com for... More

Clean and comfortable rooms, continental breakfast included and close to everything you will need to see and do. Wifi was sporadic but not a major issue and certainly did not mar our stay. Good place to stay and an affordable price.

Good value and continental breakfast offered. Friendly and helpful staff. Two minuses- no elevator, so travel light or arrange for help with large suitcases; WIFI did not work during our one night stay

We stayed for 2 nights June 6/7 2016 at the Commons Inn. The location is good, the price is good, and the room was small but adequate...the only problem was we had mice in our room both nights. The first night we heard them, but did not see them, but it was very evident they were in the suitcase and... More

Great bed and breakfast type stay. Walking distance to the harbour, Citadel, etc. A self serve breakfast is provided in the morning and free parking! Have stayed here twice now and would stay there again!

We were in the city for a week of school. This place was exactly what we needed. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean and quiet accomodation. Easy to get around the city from this locale. Good secure parking.
