Bed bugs between sheets. Very limited free parking. Many phone calls and emails later to finally get refund on room.

Nice and Quiet.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, free parking
Cons: Noisy
I've stayed at Commons Inn numerous times. It's quiet and clean. The rooms are not luxurios, but meet the needs of any traveller. The double bed rooms are quite small, but again, meet the needs of travellers. I would recommend a queen suite. The rooms are a bit larger and offer more space to move around and store any purchases. The establishment offers a great breakfast to start the day. The Commons Inn is just that...an Inn. It is not a chain hotel or the Ritz. Also, depending on the room you stay in, you're close to a major street. It can be noisy...at times. However, it's not a major issue if you're out of the room most of the day.

Great Service, good renovations

I used to stay here for cheap rooms, but now that its been renovated the value has doubled. Its cheaper than any of the other downtown hotels, has a fridge, microwave, AC, and there's someone around 24/7 to give you a hand. Breakfast is pretty plain, but its good, and the owners are really sweet. Most importantly, the place is clean as a whistle, and you can walk downtown in 15-20 minutes. If you don't wanna shell out *$ a night, go to the Commons!

Very good hotel

Contrary to the other review, this hotel rates very highly in my book. The rooms, though basic, were comfortable and very clean. Staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. Free breakfast as well.

AVOID THIS PLACE

If cleanliness is not important, if locking your room is not a concern, if you don't need lighting, this is the hotel for you.
