The hotel is very 70's, but no biggie. It could be cleaner in common areas and also the outside. I don't smell smoke which is a big deal for me (some reviewer said they did). We were in a non-smoking room on the 4th if that matters. Not a fan when workers don't say good morning and such, we had... More

Me and my friends booked a room for 2 nights with a great view from room. The rooms are big. Bathroom was fine. They have 2 extra futon on the cabinet.. No wifi in rooms. You need to go to lobby to connect.

Amazing location on an older property. That said, the rooms are well maintained and very clean. Views of the ocean side and beyond are great. Friendly and helpful staff at every service. Excellent value and a place we will visit again.

View from room into the bay was excellent . We only stayed one night but wished we had booked for two. Plenty... More

We stayed at an ocean view double room for 8,000 yen (incl.Tax) baring in mind that it was off season and the rooms are old my wife and I enjoyed our short stay here. Their big bath is worth a visit although your rooms have bath tubs too. The view was magnificent and the beach is so close by. I... More

This was the first bad experience we had at a hotel in Japan! Many problems with this place for a western traveler. We needed a place to stay while visiting the south IZU peninsula and Dogashima, and there were very few places to stay. We chose the Prince hotel because it has a name in Japan, however this blew away... More

The hotel itself is old and dirty, but good view and easy access to beach. The room is old carpet and two single beds. Which is small for couple. The pool is small as well and close at 17:00. No wifi. Not recommended.

I can confirm a previous review that my room did have a slightly "fishy" smell to it, the taxi drive into the downtown area is about $20, and that the hotel itself is a bit dated. Additional negatives are: (1) the hotel has no internet - not just no wifi, no internet period; (2) even cell coverage is spotty -... More
