Prós: Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is included featuring Japanese dishes. Neighboring the Hotel is a coin operated laundromat, a convenience store (like 7-11), and ramen/gyoza cafe. Free parking and immediate access to highway 2. Room is tiny by American standards but very clean. Bathroom has a deep soaking tub. Liquid soap and shampoo are provided as well as toothbrush and paste and disposable razor. Water boiler for tea or instant coffee is also in the room. LCD TV shows local broadcast.
Contras: The only problem I had was connecting to the internet. It is Not WiFi nor USB. It is LAN connection so if you want to us your laptop you will need a LAN to USB converter. Also, if you have never used your email accounts in Japan you may have trouble logging in unless you have a way to verify your account. I finally managed to get mine working by using my mobile phone number to get a verification code texted to me.
