    Everything was clean and tidy. The only thing I noticed was they didn’t change cups which we used when they cleaned the room while we were out.

    素泊まりでこの値段ならいいと思う。

    素泊まり利用だったので、この値段なら非常にいいです。朝食は別料金でしたが、メニューが多く、食べ過ぎちゃいました。 気になったのは、トイレの便座が暖房のないやつだったので、冬場は、ちょっと冷たいかな。それと駐車場を利用したのですが、チェックアウトで1000円払って出ると、目の前の駐車場が800円だったので、どうかな? まあ立体駐車場だったので、雨が降っても濡れることはないから、荷物が多いときは、いいかな。コンビニは少し遠い

    チェックインの折り、朝ごはんの時間場所やチェックアウト時間の簡単な説明がだいたいあると思うが、ここでは無かった。まあ部屋の案内ファイル見ればわかるけどね。

    素晴らしい立地でしたがコンビニと飲食店までの距離が少し遠いかな? スタッフの対応、施設も満足しました。
