We stayed one night after a week of safari before we flew out of entebbe. The staff was great, very attentive and friendly. Free airport shuttle which was perfect. Room had twin beds with mosquito nets, a fan, WiFi, fridge, tv, outlets, en suite bathroom. There was also a little sitting area with chairs and a table, plus a bunk bed (which we didn’t need). Beds were comfy, excellent breakfast buffet with juice, coffee, tea, cereal, pastries, fruit, eggs to order. The hotel itself is gated and off the main road, we went out and walked around the neighborhood and handed out toys and candy to local kids which they really liked. Had a wonderful stay, would recommend!

This motel is a great find. The rooms are clean, have mosquito netting, the staff was attentive and helpful. Breakfast is good (continental buffet, incl fresh fruits and juices, with eggs to order). They also have an airport shuttle which was great, especially on arrival as our flight got in late at night and this made it so that were did not need to sort out a legitimate ride in the middle of the night. They will come wait for you with a sign, so you immediately know who they are. The hotel is located in a back alley a short drive from the hotel, but after going through the gate it is like a little oasis. I would not look for another hotel on any future trips

My mother and I have stayed at this accommodation twice now and were so happy with our room and the service at J Residence Motel. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast offered included various types of cereal, toast and fruit. The owner John and his son Lawrence are so friendly and polite. The airport transfer is really helpful too. Thank you J Residence!

We travel to Uganda frequently and always begin our trip with a night at the J Residence. Reliable collection at the airport and a very friendly welcome by John and his staff. Nice breakfast! Yet again Trip Advisor will not let me post until I have written more words! Waste of time. J Residence still good
