By force of habit, my usual economy hotel chain in Japan is Toyoko Inn. Lucky for me, a friend made this Route Inn reservation for a New Year's group of 4 adults and 2 children visiting Nagano Prefecture. Like Toyoko Inn, these rooms are small by North American standards, but clean and efficiently laid out. Unlike Toyoko Inns where I have stayed, this Route Inn had Japanese-style public baths on the ground floor. These are segregated by sex, with an extra level of card-key security in place for the women's bath.

Route Inn Suwa Inter 2 and Suwa Inter 1 share the same block and have spacious, fenced-in car parking. Signs around the parking lot warn people to remove valuables from their cars; I take this to be normal legalese in modern times.

On check-in, we received a ¥500 discount coupon good for restaurants and bars in the vicinity. The coupon did not say explicitly where it would be honored, but a couple of us went to a seafood-oriented 居酒屋 (izakaya) called 海鮮問屋東京つきぢや諏訪インター店 for a nice meal with hot sake and cold beer. They gladly honored the Route Inn discount coupon.

Route Inn's buffet breakfast is more elaborate than the typical Toyoko Inn. I had a mini-omelet, a sausage, a slice of ham, a small piece of roasted fish, some tamagoyaki, various land and sea vegetables, natto on rice, some salad items, a multigrain role with jam, miso soup, and orange juice. I didn't see coffee in the dining room, but there is a machine in the lobby that grinds and brews a cup at a time on demand.
