Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Outdated, smelly, bad futons
Was very disappointed that the mattress was uncomfortable to sleep on. The pillow was small and flat. Didn’t like the open area in lobby for smoking, it made the whole lobby smell!! We got the room with shower and bathroom which was a good idea but it room was outdated and shower and toilet was in different corner of the room. The doors and floor are so thin that we could hear everything around us!

Grandsons first trip
Great Japanese breakfast. Location is very convenient.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Wahitsu (Japanese room)
We booked for a Japanese room but it was very small and was far from a Japanese room as I know of it. The room had very poorly repaired and scratched-all-over furniture. The room was the same floor with the sub-kitchen and very noisy. Staff was very kind and helpful, the only positive point. Will only recommend to the homeless person.
