Deceiving pictures
Pictures are deceiving. Room had a thick, musty smell. Mattresses were box spring. Onsen saved the experience.

Poor 2.0
OLD dirty rooms. POOR A/C and rude staff.
When I came to check in the line was 50+ people long at normal check in time. The front desk clerk was quick to tell me that my girlfriend and I wouldn't be allowed in the hot springs or pool because of our tattoos. However, when I called they said it should be ok and there is no tattoo policy on their website, I checked and called before booking. Things just kept getting worse from there. The rooms are SO OLD. The air conditioning only has a setting of L, M, H. Even at HIGH it couldn't cool the room off and we were sweating. It was terrible! The room was also so dirty. Everything is stained. The couch, chairs, walls, bed. Covered in dirt and stains. The room also smelled like mold and mildew. I'm really glad I paid a very low amount for this room. Even for what I paid, it was too much. The only redeeming factor is the area it's located. It's beautiful and there is a lot to do. However, I recommend finding another hotel to stay.

一言で言うと、古くて大きなホテルです。温泉かけ流しは外湯のみで、COVID19の影響か一部塩素臭が気になりました。シャンプーバーを楽しみにしていましたが、シャンプー台に固定されており非常に使いにくかったです。せめてシャワー台の横に固定して欲しかったです。 館内はとにかく広い。高齢の方は迷子になりそうです。周りにはコンビニ等何もないです。クラフトビール祭りが開催されていましたが、閉店が17時と早過ぎて飲めません出した。ビールを売る気が感じられなかったです。残念。

従業員の対応は良かったです。みなさん頑張ってました。ただ、写真と実際のギャップがありました。もともとはダイワホテルなんですね。昭和の雰囲気満載の部屋で、館内全体が暗く、シャワー・トイレも古いユニットで、気分はあまり上がりません。仕方ないのでしょうが、ある程度リフォームはした方が・・・。部屋の冷蔵庫が臭かったです。 プールは室内が暑かったです。窓をあけて換気してもよいかと思います。 コロナ禍の中、卓球とかカラオケとか麻雀施設があっても、ちょっとそれはねえ。 スイートへの変更(追加10000円)をチェックイン時に勧められましたが、断っといてよかったです。
