On the main street with all shops, restaurants and trolley that stops in front of the hotel. Just $2 for a trip around the town. You really do not need a car .Nice location with a farmers market just 1 block away.

Uncle Billy Hotel is mid level accommodation for 120-180 usd. Old but clean. Still need renovation. Breakfast is VERY simple, not worth it. There is small kids pool but water is very cold. Hotel is very close to shopping area.

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.
