“Average hotel; below-average rooms and location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2010

We stayed at the Route Inn for 1 night before our flight home from Okinawa. The location is very convenient for Okinawa Port, a taxi cost us 800 Yen. The hotel lobby is cool and attractive, and the staff checked us in quickly. There are 3 computers with free internet which was very useful.

Our room was very clean but unfortunately very small. Having lived in Japan for about a year I'm aware that hotel rooms are generally smaller than Western visitors would expect, however the size of the room was not consistent with the hotel's price! There was nowhere for us to put our suitcases apart from at the foot of the bed, no bedside table, ugly green decor and a funny smell.

The bathroom in particular was very tiny, with a cloakroom toilet that has to be sat on sideways. The shower is over the bath which makes the bathroom feel even more claustrophobic.

The final aspect which made our stay less than ideal was location. It's 10 minutes to Asahibashi, the nearest monorail station, and about 20 to International Street. In the Okinawa heat, pulling your suitcase, this is not great! Apart from the disappointing rooms and location the hotel was fine, with surprisingly comfy beds, good aircon and a decent breakfast. It's just a shame we felt like we could have had a better hotel for the same price.

This is a great value business hotel in downtown Naha. I stayed here in transit between various islands around Okinawa, and found it great for this purpose. There were x3 computers in the foyer with free internet access as well as a LAN cable in the room with fast internet access. Vending machines and laundry machines are on every 3rd floor which is very handy. You'll need to catch a taxi or bus to get to the main shopping strip, but it's walking distance to the city beach. The rooms are typically small as with most Japanese hotels, but the bathroom in particular was the smallest I've experienced, but it serves its purpose.

  • Liked — good value
