I've stayed in the Flight Motel now on three different occasions (in August 2005, January 2008, and January 2011), and I've always had very comfortable stays. That said, my last stay was a bit of disappointment, not because the hotel has become terribly deficient, but because I know it has seen better days.
The hotel obviously started on a major renovation about 3-4 years ago, but seems to have abandoned those plans. As a results, much of the (originally lovely) little hotel is surrounded by an unfinished, multistory concrete hulk. The rooms have also showed some signs of age.
That said, I was pleased that I was able to make a last-minute reservation (because of an unexpectedly late-arriving flight in Entebbe), and was greeted by a staff person at the airport at a very late hour. (The free shuttle to and from the airport is quite reliable.) The hotel is pretty much as close to the airport as you can get, which makes it extremely convenient for late-arriving and early-departing flights.
The breakfast was also a bit less extensive than I remember it being (i.e., no eggs--just toast and a choice of pineapple or watermelon, plus hot beverages), but it is inclusive, and the price for the entire night plus breakfast is quite reasonable.
