Breakfast is NOT included! Listing says it is included and Sheet info on wall in room said included. No Coffee/Tea available (they did loan a kettle to me) No local TV you have to have your own Netflix or YouTube account on your smart phone to watch any TV. On street parking from 6:00pm - 8:00am then you are required to move car every 2 hours or pay $15.00 for parking on property. Room over sprayed with perfumed disinfectant - took 6 hours to air out the perfume smell by opening small window, turning on A/C & bathroom fan. Upon leaving they need to check the room to ensure you didn't smoke. (I don't smoke and leave every thing neat and tidy) It just made me feel miserable! On first night at 1:00am I was awoken to a fire truck outside, they had to evacuate the other part of the property.

the building is in very poor condition, doors are very noisy, slamming every 5 min when someone walks in or out. apparently the owner of the hotel rents rooms to the government agencies that place there people with addictions problem. lots of smoking and drinking on the premises, drunk people walking all night in a hallways. i could not sleep all 4 nights i was there. its a place from hell, stay away, i would not recommend to anyone

When we arrived, the lobby was smelly : a mix of garlic smell and disinfectant; also, the floor was broken in many places. We reserved for 2 nights. The room was not clean, with obvious traces of sp*rm on one of the picture frame. Also, on the first night, there was a mouse (or mice), either in the wall or in the room, that was making noise. The only way to make it stop, was to keep the light on: so we didn't sleep at all. The next morning, I went to the the desk to ask for reimbursement. The girl at the counter said yes, we will reimburse you. So we left. But, of course, they charged my credit card, on no reimbursement. Good thing that I have recorded that conversation. One final thing, it's not possible to park close to the hotel after 8:00 AM on week days.

Though a bit downscale, the Commons offered a comfortable room at a good price.
