I have sampled many of the hotels in Minamisoma over the past couple years and so far, this is the best. The rooms were average by Japanese standards (i.e. clean, with a good solid bed, but small) but my overall experience at this hotel was the best out of the 4 or 5 hotels I have tried in this town. There is free parking out front, and the breakfast bar was superb for a hotel of this level. The hotel feels new and clean and the staff were very friendly although not a lot of English is spoken in this part of Japan.
