Hachinohe is a very small city in Aomori, but there is a Shinkansen station, so quite some tourists have a stop there. To me though I did not take the train when travelling in Tohoku, I stayed a night there so that I did not have to drive too long from Oirase Keiryuu to Tanesashi Coast.
Comfort Hotel is a typical business hotel with very small but clean rooms. It is only 2-3 minutes’ walk to the train station. I had a twin room in which I could open two medium-sized suitcases. Breakfast is included in the room rate. There is not a lot of choice but made from fresh ingredients.
The best part to me is the carpark. It is unlike many business hotels in Japan, of which the carpark is in a tall building and was parked automatically by a machine. The disadvantage is that every time you want to drive out, you have to ask the hotel staff to send the car to the entrance. The carpark of Comfort Hotel is just the normal one, just beside the hotel building. Then you can drive out to have dinner or go to the market any time you like.More
