Pros: I liked that it was attached to the train station.
Cons: The thing I'm actually really upset about is that I booked the hotel because of price and convenience. Then when I was already in my room they said they would charge and extra 2,000 yen for having another person in my room. This is a proper hotel, not some charge by the hour/person. That's why I'm giving it a not so positive review.
Pros: Great position tight by the railway station

Pros: Good for a budget hotel (under $100/night)
Allowed bed-sharing with kids, so we had a twin room for a family of four (kids aged 1.5 and 4)
Coin-operated laundry facilities available was a bonus
Public bath on floor 10 was nice to have
Breakfast buffet was good (cost extra)
Great location less than 5 min from train station. Walk 5-10 min to get to loads of shopping, restaurants (giant Aeon mall opening next door in Dec 2014), 20 min stroll down busy/fun street to Okayama Castle and Gardens.
Cons: We travelled in November and it was hot, (22 C, around 70 F) but the A/C didn't work. I think they turn it off at a certain point in the year, so setting it at a low temp only blows air around the room. We had to crack the window but it only opens about 3-4 inches for safety reasons. The staff brought us a fan but then housekeeping took it away the next morning and we had to ask for it again. Minor issue but our Japanese was terrible so communication was slightly difficult.
