We stayed at Uncle Billy’s in early May this year. Location of the property was perfect, excellent walking distance to everything. The room was adequate, bit of a musty smell. Everything was clean. Breakfast was very average and we chose to eat out everyday.

We didn't have a kitchenette but we had a fridge and a microwave, but we didn't use it, We used Uncle Billy's as a one night stay until we were able to enter our room at another hotel.
