John and his family are awesome hosts. They do free airport pickups and John is always there to meet us. This is a Ugandan family owned business and they provide us the best service we've ever received anywhere in the world. And we travel a lot. Don't even look at the other hotels. J Residence has what you need and...

I stayed at J. Residence for 3 nights in September last year. It was the last stop of our trip in Uganda. My boy friend left earlier for work while I spent two more nights by myself. The hotel owner, John, took good care of me to make the hotel like a home. He helped me book tour to chimpanzee...

J's motel is great. The staff are welcoming and always ready to help. The rooms are lovely. It's a little bit further from the airport than some other places but it's worth it. Best value for money you will find.

The motel is clean, well serviced, comfortable accommodation and very well maintained. Breakfast was good and sufficient enough. I travelled as...

As I arrived in Entebbe at 01:00 am, I found the hotel driver waiting for me at the airport. The hotel is located near the airport and very neat, clean, and comfortable. The bed is okay for a good sleep, and the breakfast is superb with fresh fruit, juice, cereal, bread, coffee, and egg. If you plan to travel from...
