Very happy with the accommodation and cannot fault the service. Extremely friendly, courteous staff who were always willing to help. Breakfast was great, coffee was even better.

We were so happy to get to our hotel after our flight. Service at the front desk was little slow. Our room was very warm due to air condition issues. Location was awesome though! Great shopping nearby. Great restaurants and always a beautiful sunset.

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.
