Older hotel but spacious. Try the private onsens!
This hotel must have once been a grand establishment, but unfortunately the years have not been too kind to it. Many parts of the hotel are showing their age, and the place now feels too large and empty for the amount of business it sustains. We do want to give credit to the hotel staff for their kind service, and the rooms are really spacious even by Western standards. The highlight of our stay was a 45-minute session in one of the private onsen rooms (reservations highly recommended!) Other than that, the public baths were decent and clean, the buffet breakfast had a large variety of foods to choose from, and we certainly can't complain about the free parking (even if we did have to walk across the street with our luggage to access the main part of the hotel). The hotel itself is a 5-7 minute drive from the main part of Matsuyama City. Judging from the other hotels near the main drag, we certainly do appreciate getting more space and hassle-free parking at Okudogo Ichiyunomori.
