We wanted a comfortable and centrally located hotel on the island. Carl's Unique Inn provided just that, in between Philipsburg, the capital on the Dutch side of the island, Princess Juliana airport and Marigot, the tiny capital on the French side. While the Cole Bay area is boring, it ensured a good night rest away from the hustle and bustle... More

Due to an early morning flight, Carl's Unique Inn was a good budget deal as their rate was the lowest you can possibly find in the Simpson Bay/Cole Bay area. The Receptionist even though helpful was unfriendly, not even a crack of a smile at all. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean enough...however I did notice a few hairs... More

Carl's Unique Inn is a well known and easy to find place. It's located above Carl & Sons in Cole Bay, which is the perfect location because that part of Cole Bay is pretty quiet, so no worrying about a good nights rest! The Inn is not that big, which I like because it feels like your own little home.... More

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. This had us waiting longer than I'd care to. The room was semi clean: there were long hairs in the bathroom, the pillows and sheet... More

It's not located near to any beaches but it is located in the industrial part of the island (no pollution though) but the truck movements shake the room that I'm in. I gave the location a 3 because you can get anything you want as all the amenities are within working distance. Cleanliness got a 2 because the sheets have... More

This place is wonderful, comfortable, quiet and very clean. It was my first time staying there and I enjoyed my stay. Wish I did not have to leave but I had to. Anselmo and the rest of the staff are wonderful and considerate. The cleaning lady is so funny she will keep u laughing all day. There r a couple... More

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 Rooms were outdated, but kept clean.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.
