The exterior of the hotel shows its wear and tear, but the interior has been remodeled and is quite clean. The bathtub has both warm water and cold carbonated natural spring. The owner speaks quite good japanese and that is of help to some people. And the Suao Cold Spring Park is right in front of this hotel. At the park, I would recommend trying an individual room with a bathtub in the log cabin-like section toward the back of the park premise where you can dip yourself into a very clear cold water full of carbonated water bubbles. The water is quite powerful that it keeps your body warm and energized for a day or two.
