Really nice hotel but just tight space..
Located in Tokoname, Hotel Route-Inn Tokoname Ekimae is near the beach. Flight of Dreams and Nishio City Historical Park are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those in the mood for shopping can visit Aeon Mall Tokoname and Ceramall. Mentai Park and Hekinan Seaside Aquarium are also worth visiting. Our guests appreciate the hotel's convenience for public transport: Taya Station is 10 minutes by foot.
It’s basically an airport hotel, but the staff can’t use english, and most of the in-hotel communication is only in Japanese. Their restaurant is closed on Sunday night, and the only options for food are at the airport if before 8.30pm. They did show me a map of the local area eating options, but the map was only in Japanese, and most of them were closed (except for the smokey Japanese pub). I was lucky to get one small hamburger and snacks from the convenience store at the airport. That was my very sad dinner the night before flying. The Monday morning breakfast options are terrible, salad, fish, rice being the main “breakfast” options. They did have small sausages, eggs, and bread. But no cereals. The coffee cups were really tiny, like two mouthfuls of coffee. Everything about the hotel was a little weird. Maybe ok for a domestic business traveller, but not so great for international travellers with big heavy suitcases.
