The stay was nice but it did not start that way. On arrival, the stand in receptionist could not find our booking and when she did, she did not know how to complete the process.

We stayed at Carl's for a week. It was not the best place we ever stayed at, but it was good enough. Free fresh breakfast, from the bakery downstairs. Rooms were outdated, but kept clean. How much time do you spend in your room anyway. We are planning on returning to Carl's for a month in early 2009.
