I took a taxi from New Chitose Airport to the hotel (30 - 40 mins. $6500 yen) arrived around 9:30 hrs., in the morning, only to be told I couldn’t get a room until 15:00 hrs., typical of Japan, but a tad annoying. The room (twin beds) was fine & in my opinion a reasonable size. The bathroom is small, but does the job. The hotel has an Onsen which again is reasonable (town water, not a spring). The in-house restaurant is fine with nice staff. I would stay here again.

Overall don’t expect much from this hotel, caters mainly to Japanese workers who are in transit ... traveling through town etc. Price is very reasonable and room rates comes with complimentary buffet breakfast. Laundry facilities are useful. We were disappointed that we were assigned a smoking room despite pre booking a non smoking one. The room smelt horrible and no matter what we did we could not get rid of the smell. Rooms are pretty small as well... bathroom is a very tight squeeze, which explains why a lot of the locals choose to head to the public bath on the ground floor.

I booked only for one night but I had a perfect night. Everything was good (staff, parking included with no fee, comfortable bed, cleaness, service, breakfast,..) and it is just in front of station. I recommend this hotel.

Spent my last day staying at this hotel in Tomakomai, we arrived sometime 6 ish in the evening just in time for supper and asked the staff about this seaside restaurant my father visited last time. This lady staff looked through all the information she's got to help us to locate this restaurant. Anyhow, in the end we went to this very traditional seafood restaurant the hotel staff suggested, the food was absolutely delicious. Will definitely stay again next time.

The rooms are small as in many business class in Japan but this seems even smaller than normal. The staff are friendly and helpful. This hotel has a policy that I haven't seen in many years and was very surprised when I hear it on check-in. They required that all guest leave the key-card at the front desk whenever you go out. Not sure if it's due to a large amount of key-cards go missing but it could be a hassle. On google, it looked like a large mall is very close to the hotel and that was one of the major reasons I chose this hotel. However, it was an old establishment that wasn't that interesting. Very few restaurants close by. Most likely not stay again even in the neighborhood.

Hotel room is small and basic. Toilets is the usual Japanese plastic box type which I consider it small. However there is a bath house at the lobby that you can use. Room is clean. Parking is free on site. The best part of the hotel is location. This is next to the train station and a short walk to a mall across the train station where you can shop for groceries and just about anything at local prices. On a down side the hotel is near some smoking stacks.

I did not expect much on this hotel but surprisingly the hotel is located conveniently next to the train station. Service was good and the room was very cozy and comfortable. It is centrally located with restaurants and shops all within walking distance. The cost for a night stay is also cheap and reasonable. However, do not expect much for the breakfast.

The rooms were standard Japanese size- small. Very clean, looked decent. The hotel had a free bath for guests as well. Very good amenities- four step skin care products. Average hotel breakfast. Located right next to the station, but the name is in Japanese only, so bring a picture of the hotel, or ask. The area around is not the best- I had a view of a factory smokestack, smoking at all hours. There are a LOT of closed down businesses throughout town, and it was difficult to find a non-izakaya restaurant open nearby after 7pm. The hotel wifi was next to useless- several minutes to load a page, and then kept dropping the faint signal.

stayed here for seven nights. Had stayed at a next door hotel last time we were there and that was was booked so stayed at route Inn..too be honest this was even better than the previous one. Had clean rooms, had a Japanese indoor public bath which was great..a relaxation room where you could get body massage by machine or foot massage...right next to station but the best was the complimentary breakfast..a huge variety of food and it was buffet...three of us stayed here and this will be my first choice next time..very good price as well and not noisy although next to station. We come to Tomakomai often.....also free Wifi in our rooms

Hotel Route Inn Tomakomai Ekimae – turn left when you get out of the gates at the train station and head for the south gate. The room I had was nice and comfortable, a little larger than some of the other Japanese business hotels I’ve been to. They serve an excellent Japanese breakfast – they had more fish, fowl, and meat choices than a lot of economy business hotels. This hotel had free internet LAN and WI-FI in room.
