First of all, be clear that this is a budget hotel ("budget" by Japanese standards, of course). You will not get all the bells and whistles of an upmarket chain. Furthermore, the trip from lobby to room gives the impression of a motel rather than hotel - if it's raining you'll likely get wet on your way to breakfast in the morning.
That said, this is a good place to stay. The room was large, spotlessly clean and well-appointed. Heating and A/C were quite efficient and the shower was fantastic. The beds were fantastically comfortable as well. There is TV and safe, hairdryer and internet cable (no WiFi in rooms, though).
Breakfast is Japanese style, not really to my tastes but fairly good nonetheless. The food at dinner was not bad but a little pricey for what you got, though the cheap Asahi during happy hour made up for it.
As another reviewer has said this is very close to the Kadena Air Base and you can watch the military aircraft coming in to land. It can occasionally be noisy during the day but the flights stop between dusk and dawn and I experienced no problems with noise.
