3泊予定でしたが、1泊のみで自腹キャンセルしたほど、非常に印象が悪いです。他の部屋は良いのかもしれませんが。 【良い点】 ホテルのスタッフは、口コミ通り、親切で非常に良かったです。花火イベントによる渋滞情報なども教えてくださり助かりました。 【悪い点】 部屋が本当に悪かったです。2 Twin Bunk Bedsを予約しましたが、予約サイトの写真は正直詐欺です。 部屋には窓がなく、昼夜など外部の様子が全くわかりません。あとテレビがないのは予想外でした。窓やテレビの有無を確認する発想がありませんでしたが、せめて部屋のタイトルに「窓なし」くらいは記載したほうが良いかと。 お風呂に猫脚のバスタブがありますが、シャンプーボトルなどの置き場がないので、シャワー利用するには使い勝手が非常に悪いです。一方、バスタブに湯を張ると、身体を洗う場所がなく、さらに、お湯を抜くと洗面所が全て水に浸かります。床がタイルで滑りやすく、子供や年配の方には結構危ないと思います。 この部屋で一泊した翌朝、この部屋に戻ることを想像すると残りの沖縄ステイが楽しめなくなると思い、自腹覚悟で残り2泊をキャンセルしました。キャンセル費用はエクスペディアさんと相談すると仰って頂きましたが、その後5 日経っても何の連絡もないので、たぶんそうゆうことなんでしょう。 外国含め多くの安宿も経験してきましたが、残りの宿泊をキャンセルしたのは初めての経験でした。 場所は良いですし、他の部屋は良いのかもしれませんが、この部屋のトラウマがあるので、個人的には二度と利用しませんし、知人にも絶対におすすめはしません。

Rooms are a lot smaller than the advertisements. Felt like I was staying in prison but I wasn't planning on being in there much. Also no one was available on the day of checkout. Waited 45 minutes at the front desk before I gave up and left a note. All in all clean rooms, small, no service but cheap.

the place is perfectly good for a big group of family. We have 10 people with good arrangement on the beds. 3 toilets in the room we stay. But 2 shower rooms and 1/2 are actually 2 showering facility. Although we are family, it is still a bit inconvenient on arranging the showering time among the group. Overall comment for this property is still good.
