Affordable, convenient & comfortable! This is an older hotel, but the mattresses were comfortable and the staff was friendly. We checked in late one night and checked out right after breakfast (which is free). It was an excellent hotel for a quick pit stop.

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.
