I stayed here for a couple of nights during a recent business trip to Shimizu. I have stayed at this hotel before, but they seem to have done a recent remodel which was somewhat better. The issue with Shimizu is that there aren't a lot of choices on hotels and this may be the best one. Plus, its pretty cheap for a hotel in Japan.
Having said the above. there are a number of negatives to the hotel. First, very small rooms and they have a modular insert for a bathroom. Nothing terrible and it seemed reasonably clean. Secondly, there was noticeable smoke in the lobby and elevators and there was no WiFi available. They did have hard wired connections, but that didn't help my iPad. The restaurant for breakfast is ok, but again nothing special. There is actually a McDonalds back behind the hotel near a little shopping / market area that is an option for breakfast.
Again, there are downsides, but I'm not sure there is a better one in the area.
