We were there for only one night. Upon our fast and easy check in they gave us breakfast voucher which included with our booking but they also gave us free admin tickets for the FujiQ Park and 2 vouchers to use and Onsen next door also admin tickets to a museum. On a clear day you can see Mt. Fuji right in front of the hotel. The breakfast area has a great view of Mt. Fuji as well.
To get to the hotel was quite a hassle though for us as we didn't know what we were doing for one thing and the bus schedule was confusing. We travelled from Tokyo using JR train get off at Ostuki station then take a local train to Kawaguchiko station from then there is a bus from the station to the hotel and it's about an hour apart if you missed it you gotta wait a while. We purchased a retro bus ticket. it's good for 2 days and it takes you to various sightseeing spots in the area also to the hotel if you get on the right bus lol. anyhow we missed the bus and took a taxi to the hotel. it costed us JYN 1200.
After we checked in we decided to go for a walk down the road just to check out the little town and there are quite a few restaurants on the strip worth going to. If you like to experience local restaurants.
Over all the hotel was good it was clean and staffs are very helpful. Great selection for breakfast buffet.
Oh at the onsen if you have a tattoo you can't use the facility. There is a sign at the onsen but not sign or information at the hotel.
And there are quite a few nice spots in the area you can go with retro bus do some research for the area before your visit if you have a short stay like me you might not have enough time to see it all.
