Recently Renovated!!!
I stayed 2 nights at Carls Unique and was very happy with my stay. The hotel recently opened from renovations. It is clean and has a kitchenette, coffee maker, and A/C. Breakfast is at a minimart attached to the hotel and they give you plenty to eat, a hot sandwich, a pastry, a hot drink, and a cold drink. The reception staff is friendly and there are plenty of places to eat around the area.

Cracks unique hotel was not where I actually ended up staying due to lack of furniture. One of the workers explained the situation and took us to a new hotel that they reserved for us and got use settled very easily. Although the whole situation was a surprise, it worked out well in the end
