I really like the Dormy Inn chain. You always know what you're getting and in my opinion it is good quality value for money.
As previous posters have said, it's very conveniently located (just keep in mind the entry is not on the main street, but just around the corner.) There is a convenience store on the corner which is handy if, like us, you prefer not to eat breakfast in the hotel. And there are so many restaurants within walking distance you'll be spoilt for choice for dinner. The Canal area starts just across the street, so perfect for tourists.
The room was clean and compact. There was space to store our suitcases (standing on their side) under the bench. Good sized beds and non-smoking room always makes for a comfortable night's sleep.
As with all Dormy Inn's there are onsen type baths on the top floor with laundry facilities as well. Personally I preferred to wash there instead of in the bathroom in the room. The bathroom was a shower cubicle that looked slightly aged, although the rest of the hotel seemed to be quite new. Whereas upstairs the wash areas were very well fitted out with everything you needed. Plus the bonus of a relaxing hot soak.
The hotel staff were very helpful. Our suitcases were ready and waiting for us at checkin(we had them sent by takuhaibin)
I can't really say we had a great view from our room, but it was irrelevant as the best place to be in Kurashiki is walking the historic streets with the all the wonderful galleries.
