I stayed 1 night at the hotel, just because I wanted to go Firefly Squid spotting! The location is right beside Namerikawa station so it's really convenient. The hotel staff also kindly lent me a bicycle to cycle around town, which was very nice.
The room is pretty basic with all the nice and clean amenities eg. pyjamas, bathtub, electric kettle... Note that the room only comes with a heater system and you'll have to crank the window slightly open to get any sort of ventilation. The staff was polite and helpful!
The Firefly Squid Museum was just 5 minutes away on bicycle, and beside it was a sea water spa place which I did not check out. Right beside this cluster is the jetty where you can take the tour boat to see the fishermen at work.
Other than that, the town is pretty quiet, especially at night! There are a few small eateries in the vicinity of the hotel which offers pretty nice local food at a good price. There are no convenience stores nearby apart from an AM/PM about 10-15 minutes away (near the Museum).
I wanted to go out to the coast at night, but there's a very long seawall stretching out as far as my eyes could see... so if you really want to hunt down the Squids along the coast, I'd advise you to rent a car out instead.
I also had a simple breakfast consisting of bacon, fried eggs, miso soup, rice and tea at the hotel - and it did taste pretty nice compared to some of the other business/budget hotels.
