Hotel New Tamaya, Usuki, Oita Prefecture
The New Tamaya is no longer so new, and the décor may be somewhat faded, but it is perfectly clean and very convenient. It is located just 50 meters from JR Usuki Station, and a ten minute walk from the ferry port or the castle park.
There is a convenience store nearby. There are a variety of room sizes including both western-style and tatami/Japanese style and a restaurant, so an assortment of meal plans are available. Prices start from just 3,500 yen.
I paid 4,300 yen and for that I got a western-style room with en-suite bathroom, TV, fridge, kettle, and internet access.
Around the lobby there are several hand written notices in English so the hotel is trying to be foreigner-friendly.
