Old but nice and clean. A Korean manager was always available and nice. All necessaries as a motel were provided. Beds are too soft and towels were not changed everyday. A bit far from the station. Good with a car. 韓国系の方がマネージャーで、親切でした。古いですが、綺麗で広かったです。タオルがかえられていませんでした。駅からは遠いので、車があった方がいいです。

The furnishings and colours are exactly the same as they were 20 years previous. Cupboard doors are coming loose on the hinges, carpet is worn, beds feel "old", it's like...

very disappointed in this motel, the advertising pictures looked OK, but its very run down. Poor lighting (you can't read in bed), no curtains in the bathroom, people could easily see in, flimsy nets in kitchen,and plastic table and chairs in small kitchen(cheap outside chairs). Plastic table cloth, painted kitchen bench top.
