We stayed in the one bedroom with kitchenette. The room was huge, and the price was good. In order for that to happen, pretty much everything else gets compromised. Furniture is crappy, there is cracked, stained linoleum in the bathroom, the towels are thin and scratchy, the corridor smelled funny, etc. However, if what you want is an clean enough economical place to stay with room for a bunch of people, then this fits the bill.
The restaurant was fun with the gardens and koi. The food is OK quality but kind of expensive. Room service was one of the extras I missed -- with time differences and jet lag it would have been very nice to get a meal or two delivered.
I usually stay in nicer hotels and found the compromises a bit frustrating. But hey, it's a perfectly fair value for the price, and made an expensive vacation closer to affordable. Those nicer hotels are going to be two or three times the cost of this place. If you understand what you're getting into and value economy and space, it's a good choice.
