Good stay would go again.
There was a long line at check in although it went quickly. Kids received a little welcoming gift (plastic minion purse) which they were thrilled about. They even carried it around USJ and collected park stickers in it. Room was as expected. Parking is ¥3000 per day in the hotel parking garage. The breakfast buffet was good and had a large variety. Although discounted at ¥2500 per adult, seemed rather expensive for breakfast. If you need to have the TV going for kids at any point during the stay bring your own tv stick. No English channels. Kids were happy to see the minions (pictures and figures) at the hotel. We were able to purchase Universal tickets for the next day after check-in at the adjacent desk counter. We were able to get park entrance area passes after we entered the park on the USJ app. They have free lockers if needed about the size of a back pack if needed. We used the washer/dryer while there ¥300 per machine. They had a change machine and a detergent vending machine.

My tail toe was hurt because of the small table design. Also there is no wardrobe. But it is clean and bright. I am appreciated with the clock without “sound”.
