Just OK
Looks like we walked into a time capsule. 1970 style hotel reception. Definitely needs renovations. Carpets have to be replaced asap (dirty is an understatement). At full price, this place is not competitive with 3-4 stars hotel.

Nice staff but so so room
The hotel staff was really nice and polite. They offered complimentary parking which was appreciated since most hotels in Japan do not. That being said the room was not quite up to the pictures. It was older than it looked like and there was some moldy smell. It did not seem super clean either. It was ok for one night, but I would not recommend to stay there for a longer stay.
