I am a Halifax resident and have not stayed at this hotel but was pleased to see the postive reviews. I pass this hotel en route home most evenings and have seen this hotel being renovated from time to time and hoped that it was making a go of it. Agricola Street is a street in transition in a positive...

It was great - only reason for giving a 'very good' instead of 'excellent' is we were told by staff we would be able to see the harbour July 1st fireworks from the rooftop terrace. This info was incorrect. Otherwise it was a great location, large room - clean, bed was comfortable (pillows were a shade hard for my liking,...

We are just checking out this morning (June 26), and just had to let everyone know what a fine place the Commons is for a Halifax stay. Large, clean, spacious rooms, large bathroom (we even had the tub with the jets.......ask for #311....), free parking, free breakfast (toast, muffins, fruit, coffee, tea, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal), friendly and helpful staff...what more...

Good choice! The Commons has been nicely decorated, inside and out, and gave us a very good value stay. After our first night we booked another. Staff keen to help and ready to put themselves out. Comfortable rooms, without pretentions. 10 minutes walk to the Citadel, 20 to main shopping, probably 25 to the waterfront. Free off-street parking. The area...

Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff was lovely, and helpful... right down to booking cabs and storing luggage. The unbelievable feature is two massive rooftop decks flanking both sides of the Inn! You can enjoy your morning coffee on 1000+ square ' deck. located in a cool area (urban chic) and a walk away from downtown.(7-10min) What a great find!!...

I found this great little hotel in Halifax for about 1/2 the price of other hotels. The price included parking and a nice continental breakfast. You could walk to the waterfront, but it would be quite a hike, maybe 30 to 45 minutes. It doesn't have a gym, or a pool, but that's ok. I never use those things in...

Overall, I was pleased with my stay, just a couple cons (And not really negative ones.), but more pros than anything else. I volunteered for Hal-Con, so I wasn't in my hotel room a lot of the day, but I did take the time to explore around the place and I was happy. There is no elevator so beware of...

On arrival the receptionist was efficient and reasonably helpful, we did not see this man again, instead a most unprofessional and unhelpful man took his place. Our room was on the second floor, the light at the entrance to the very small room was missing and the wires were hanging loose, the bathroom was adequate though the shower surrounds could...

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...
