One kilometer (½ mile) from Ryotsu Port, this is more a friendly inn than a hotel. If you telephone before you catch the ferry from Niigata, the owner will meet you at the dock, carrying a green Seaside Hotel flag. The rooms and shared baths are fading but still clean and comfortable. Breakfast is ¥840, and a tasty mélange of regional delicacies for dinner costs ¥1,575.
