If you just need a place to crash, this is probably one of the best ones in the area. The train station is right in front of it, and there is a huge outlet mall within walking distance. Parking is usually included and it's convenient for road trippers too (not sure when it's busy though). There is a restaurant on-site and the breakfast there was pretty good (buffet that has both Japanese and non-Japanese food). Rooms are kept pretty clean and hotel staff was polite as well.
One thing to keep in mind that this is not an American hotel chain; meaning that rooms are rather small and their "double beds" are not really for two people (well, if we talk about the American standard). I strongly recommend that you check before making your reservation.
For those who stay for the first time: I think they give away a free ticket for late check-out. With this ticket, you can extend your check-out time by one hour for free. So I actually used it and checked out at 12 at no cost (check-out time is 11am otherwise). I don't know if this is some type of special offer during a slow period, but I thought I'd share.
