Ratings & Reviews
I stayed over a week for business purposes, the hotel has relatively low rates for the average SXM hotels. It is located close to Cay Bay and was a bit difficult to find, the best reference you can give when ask for directions is the bakery located next to the hotel. There is no elevator so take this into account for baggage or special considerations. The front desk is located on a second floor. Rooms are big and well equiped, my biggest complain is the bed, I struggled each night to have a good sleep. Regarding service the breakfast was a nice touch and is included on the rate. You can ask for a coupon if leaving the hotel before 7:30 am, the bakery is open and has good sandwich selection. The front desk helped me to coordinate laundry at an affordable price so that was a plus.
This hotel sure is "unique" It is in a sketchy part of town. 2 sets of stairs to climb with your luggage to find the office. Office personnel stayed late to check us in as our flight was quite late. She was very friendly and accommodating.Brought my husband a coke and ice to the room as rest. was closed. Had no blanket on bed only sheets so she brought us a blanket which looked like a rag as well. My husband didn't even want to use it. There was no hand soap or ammen. in the washroom, which was also very worn. Room was clean but very dated and pretty rough looking. Bed and pillows were terrible. I was actually a little leary about even sleeping there. Breakfast was included. I didn't even look at it. My husband went to get a coffee. It was instant. We just needed something for 1 night. Flew in late and didn't need any amenities. Hotel was low in star rating. I presumed it was because it was not on the main strip, didn't have a pool or any view. Would have booked elsewhere and paid more had I known how rough it was. I guess it would be suitable for back packers or anyone on a budget holiday.
Carls Unique Inn was very nice and cozy. There is a restaurant and mini mart just downstairs which I thought was very convenient. A/C worked great. This is a plus, since it was very hot at that time. Will most likely stay there again.
The room is definitely big for a couple. It is very clean and the AC works. The only thing difficult when staying here is that the rooms are located at the 2nd floor and they do not have an elevator (I heard that they are installing one soon, not sure). The best thing about staying here, for me , is the food. They have free breakfast. The food they offer is very much acceptable. I stayed here 3x already and would definitely go back. No, they do not have a pool but for a simple, overnight stay, this is a great option
Booked on BOOKING.com. May be a low rate - but I would have Not booked if I had known. Very industrial, trashy, gross part of town. We did NOT stay. I would give a - 5 if possible. I DO NOT recommend!!!
