I couldn’t book a room for 4 of us. So we separated to 2 rooms. Although the room is small but clean n bed is comfortable. The most we liked is the Onsen on 9/F. With such a small hotel which provide 3 types of hot spring baths, changing room is clean and well equipped. They provided child amenities (tooth brush, kids Onsen clothing and kids pillow) Amazing! You can also enjoy free ramen at 9:30-11pm
The location is easy to find as you can see the big hotel logo far away on the road. It is located in a small town, not very busy but many traditional Japanese restaurants near the hotel. There is a convenience store right next to the hotel, fulfill your basic need. I like the hot-spring on the top floor. You must try the outdoor hot-spring, feeling the cool weather outside and immersing yourself in the lovely warm water. The hot-spring facilities were good. If you think the shower room in the hotel room is too small, you can consider taking a shower in the shower area of the hot-spring facilities. I did not try the hotel breakfast as I bought light food in the convenience store (0600-2400). There is free ramen available for you as a late-night snack.
Super service throughout the hotel. A misunderstanding (caused by us) had the staff scrambling across six floors, all handled with smiles and haste. The outdoor section of the onsen is a true extravagance given the price-point. Evening ramen and a comfy mattress...We’re actually looking for reasons to come back to Tomakomai just to stay here again.
This hotel is located about 10-min walk from Tomakomai JR station. The whole area is actually quite quiet with few people, but still packed with many Izakaya restuarants nearby. If you do not like Izakaya, within 10-min walk you can find a Mos Burger and a Yoshinoya, and some western restaurants nearby the JR station. I suppose one of the famous spots in Tomakomai is the fish market which is also in walking distance (around 20 minutes). Other than food, next to the JR station is a big Donki mall. It is actually the most spacious Donki mall I have visited in Japan so it is really comfortable to shop inside. Besides, there is a giant Aeon mall in Tomakomai and you can take a free shuttle next to the JR station. In the hotel, it is a usual Dormy Inn setup. Room is very clean and tidy. As I stay in high floor, the view is excellent. My room is very quiet and I didn't hear any noise from other guests during my stay. I got very good rest every evening. As for the spring bath, it has both indoor/outdoor bath and a dry sauna. It is very relaxing to soak in them but I am not sure if they are using natural spring water as they seem only hot water to me. One point to note is the outdoor bath and sauna are very hot and I cannot really stay more than 5 minutes. The indoor one seems better to me. The only complaint is that the wifi is not reliable and not working from time to time.…
Its worthwhile staying here just to experience the small but lovely natural open air onsen on 9th floor. No chlorine smell! Very relaxing looking at stars at night. The room was a good size for the price and all amenities were clean and neat. Staff very friendly and efficient.
