Hotel was clean. Pillows small and mushy. The on campus location was not good for me. There was not much too see around but college bars etc. I was actually served in plastic at the bar at check in night because it was a game day. I eventually got a glass for my drink from a sympathetic bar tender. The...

My husband and I love the Commons Hotel when we go to U of M football or hockey events or just hang out in the Dinkytown area for really good music and dining. It's within walking distance to TCF Bank field and Mariucci Arena and is on the light rail line which takes you from Downtown Minneapolis to the Mall...

I was on the 5th floor - looks like the "hallway" really need a carpet cleaning or new carpets completely. Otherwise, the room was very nice and clean! Also, I received two completely separate bills for my stay - which I am working out.

We stayed at the Commons Hotel on Friday October 28th and attended a wedding reception at the McNamara Alumni Center at the UM. It was a very short and safe walk from the hotel to the reception. The rooms were large and each had to queen size beds, we were able to get adjoining rooms which is nice when traveling...

Love, love this hotel. Booked on Hotwire.ca, was not disappointed. Easy access to the blue line to go downtown Minneapolis. Hotel staff gave us a better room when they found out it was our anniversary.

We spent the night here thinking it was an "airport hotel" as we missed our connecting flight and it was listed on Hotel Tonight as 6.5 miles from the airport. It's not! It's in downtown Minneapolis near the University. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our stay very much mostly because the staff from front desk (who provided us with overnight toiletries) to...

We stayed here for a tournament. We asked for a microwave and Matt brought it to us very quickly and set it up for us. He was also outstanding and very kind even though it was very late Saturday night. Thank you very much.

The hotel is a warm and friendly place in the middle of the campus. Good meeting facilities. It houses a pub-type restaurant and there is an Applebees and Starbucks attached. One can navigate the campus via a tunnel system (winter weather) and the campus is a very friendly and interesting place to visit. Lots of eateries surround the hotel and...
