Route Inn Shiojiri was my second experience with a Route Inn property, so the room did not quite look as pokey as the first one. Also the money we paid was a third lower than the first time, so felt better! As expected the rooms were functional and clean; the bathroom was spiffy though someone taller than me would have had a crick in his/her neck. The breakfast fare was reasonable and somehow seemed better than the first time around. More than adequate for a night or two.
