Claremont's Common Man is a quaint Inn in a repurposed mill building on the Sugar River. The room was nice. I would caution folks planning on taking one of their economy rooms that they can be very noisy. We were visiting for a surprise Birthday party so had three rooms. Two of us had noise issues: One was next to... More

I did not expect to be so charmed by the Common Man Inn. I loved the reception area and all the grounds. They did such an amazing job remodeling the old sugar mill.

We thoroughly enjoyed every bit of our stay at The Common Man Inn. Perfect location in "downtown" Claremont, easy to explore nearby things on foot. Also an easy drive to Sunapee and other local tourist stuff. Housekeeping staff are superb. Daily cleaning provided, and a unusual really nice amenity kit. Most often a hotel's restaurant is dull, but NOT the... More

Hi Jeff_Brad, So glad to hear your glowing remarks! The two-story suite option is a great room. The exposed rock wall is actually from the natural river bed and was incorporated as part of the building. The preservation of the original construction was an important part of the restoration. For your next visit, try our premiere terrace suite. The river... More
