9.6 Excellent
Pros: Right next to Shirahama train station. Though it is situated away from the busy, attraction-filled area of Shirahama, it wins in terms of convenience: easy access to bus stop where you can get to all the attractions in Shirahama, also easy access to train station if you are getting out of Shirahama early in the morning. The lady owner of the inn mainly speaks Japanese and is very hospitable.
6.3 Good
Pros: Location is right next to JR Shirahama station. The Meiko Bus into town is a minute walk away. Rooms on the second floor have a private outdoor bath which is nice. Great views for train watching!
Cons: Booking.com says this property accepts credit cards for payment, this is not true. When we arrived, there is a sign in English stating your reservation must be paid in cash. As we showed the Inn Keeper we did not have enough, she tried to get us to use our visa at an atm in town to withdraw cash, which I refused to do. I showed her the confirmation From Booking that’states visa is an accepted form of payment. After a few back and forths and a call to her friend who speaks English, she agreed to charge the card Booking.com has on file to hold the reservation. Also, room is clean, but in colder months, there is not too much insulation so the rooms get cold.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location! And the bed is bigger than I expected! Host is super friendly.
7.1 Good
Pros: Bath outside
Cons: Cash only. Do not trust booking
7.5 Good
Pros: the minshuku inn is a homey place. it is like visiting your aunt and staying in her place for a vacation. the proprietress was very funny and friendly. her breakfast (which was an addition to our room rate) was typical japanese with a touch of homeyness, like what a japanese mom will prepare for her children. the room we had was a shared room and it was adequate for japaness standards. we got the room with an external bath (which was an open air bathtub) which opens up to the nearby jr train station. it was quirky and cute. you might think that it nearness to the jr train station (it's literall a spitting distance) would make the place quite noisy but surprisingly it was not. wifi is good, free bread and snacks and tea is available. brewed coffee is fresh for 100 yen. its a working inn and the husband and wife team who owns/manages/cleans the place are very welcoming and friendly. because the place is near the jr station and bus terminal, you have easy access to going to key places in shiraham such as adventure land (which was 15 mins by local bus) and shirahama proper (at least 30 mins) and tore-tore shin (nice open market food court cum grocery supermarket). so it will be no difficulty to go from one place or another in shirahama and the other key natural areas to be visited. unfortunately, we devoted most of our visit to adventure land because of the baby panda and stayed there the whole day and had no opportunity to visit other places in shirahama during the day time. you definitely need more than 3days to visit.
Cons: the inn is a bit off the main commercial/town center and therefore not many shopping or commercial amenities are available specially at night. shirahama is like a typical small japanese town, where activity and shops closes by 7pm even at the city center. if you are not staying in the city centre like where minshuku inn was you have to dinner early in the city to be able to go back to minshuku (or else miss the last bus or take your chance to get a taxi). in our case, it was fortunate that there is a tourist shop cum eating place near the jr station/minshuku inn that is open until 730pm, last order is 7pm, that serves very good local ramen, rice curry, soba/noodles, and other local delicacies. its a family-owned shop and the people there are very warm and helpful too.

Pros: The room was spacious, very stunning sea view. Showering room was superb. And the bed was good too.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The front desk staff are nice and helpful. One of them even know Cantonese and helped us to make a reservation for dinner at another night. The onsen is great. The dinner and breakfast buffet is okay. There is a lady selling local fruit in front of the shop at the morning. -- I recommend this as those are great and juicy.
Cons: Our rooms are just opposite to the function room and it is too noisy even we close the door. Lucky that the banquet closed at 9pm.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The room was really big with great ocean view. Their "box lunch" was exceptional value. Employees were super nice. This hotel is what I would call a resort hotel.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The room was very nice, and it was convenient that they offered to pick us up by car and take us to the hotel, and then also drive us to any nearby restaurants. Our stay was very comfortable and we enjoyed the trip very much!
Cons: The room lacked a tall enough mirror to use to get ready. The one above the sink was not convenient for me to use and we had to wait for the other person to finish getting ready before we could use the mirror.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great view of the ocean. I don’t like that they cover the ocean view from balcony with a permanent screen. I wish they would have a curtain so we can open it when we sit in the private tub on the balcony instead of block it up, and you can only see it by standing up.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: the staff was very nice, there is a pick up car service around the hotel
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly hosts, especially the pick-up service was unbelievably helpful! We loved the location with a great view on the ocean (especially when we could watch the fireworks right from our balcony). Best part was the private Onsen on the balcony! Just perfect!!!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Nice staff, anxious to help.
7.5 Good
Pros: Good design of onsen bath
Cons: Light too dim and scene is not good enough
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Firstly, the view from hotel is great! The hot spring in the room is excellent as well! It would be better that the bamboo fences could be replaced by glasses which can only be seen from inside instead of outside so that customers can enjoy the seaview while in hot spring! The hotel is equipped with a lift. And they have a minivan to pick you up at bus station or beach as hotel is in the mountain, hard for people to walk up to.
Cons: We arrived late on the first day as our flight was delayed. When we got there we met a not very nice receptionist who rolled her eyes at us when one of us approached to the car set in the lobby. And she emphasized like three times on only two pick up one day, which makes us feel that we're not respected and welcomed. And it's a wee bit expensive considering the location and no meals.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: We had a brilliant stay here. The rooms are funky and each has a private bath on the balcony. The baths are super hot. So use the cold tap to cool down. Don’t worry about the overflow. They also have three private Onsen in the basement. 2 are family size one is couple size. You just go down and if the are unlocked they are free. Go in lock the door and enjoy. Living in Japan and having been to hundreds of Onsen this was a real boon and highlight. Usually it’s a reservation system and extra charge, but not here. The hotel has no food or cafe but provides facilities for heating food. The major advantage is the free driver service. You go to reception tell them where you need to go and they take and bring you back. This is brilliant as they are located atop a steep hill. Makes you feel kind of special being chauffeured around Arno additional cost.
Cons: Nothing. We had a great time.

7.9 Good
Pros: The room was large and the staff were lovely. I was given a lift to the beach one morning and to the train station at the end of my stay.
Cons: The aircon wasn't quite powerful enough. The room needed to be a little cleaner. The bed could have been softer. It was further from the beach than one would like, but I found a great Italian restaurant on near Ezura beach as a result so it worked out for me.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Awesome service! Seriously, 5 star for this. Uncle was kind enough to drive me to the onsen and to the train station without me asking, he just offered straightaway. He talked to me about the onsen and about the beach, he's quite fun to talk to even with the limited english.
Cons: It's a bit hidden location-wise, but once you familiarize yourself around the area, you can go back to the property without using maps.

Pros: Great value basic accommodation. Clean. Staff seemed very friendly but spoke very little English (this was not a problem). Parking available. Could walk to a very good Italian/Pizza Restaurant overlooking the ocean (just in case you had to much great Japanese food and needed a change). Staff gave us directions to visit a local major park that had a fantastic display of cherry blossoms. Easy drive to Osaka if you need to fly out from there.
Cons: A bit out of town, but was quiet and in a local neighborhood.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We arrived to the apartment around 7 something as per the late flight, the owner was friendly and wait us very patiently with big welcoming. We were impressed his nice and introduction, so we finally added breakfast at 9am by next day. He made breakfast very on time with knock the door as morning call, we were fully satisfied for the 1st day to Shirahama at Wakayama. The design is good and a bit local Japanese style decorations. Breakfast delicious and the owner served us additional coffee and fruits for free trial. Thanks for sharing the great food and enjoy yummy fruit together, highly recommend! The location is quiet. Even though beside the graveyard, it still peaceful and safe.
7.9 Good
Pros: Staff was really friendly, even with the language barrier. We were invited to a jazz show on our first night in the cafe/bar on the first floor which was a lot of fun. Our room was comfortable and spacious. We loved being close to Ezura Beach/江津良海水浴場 (around a 5-7 minute walk) which was much less crowded, not at all touristy, and felt a lot more natural than the main beach area in Shirahama. Cute and quiet neighborhood. Not a whole lot in the immediate area, but a couple of good restaurants were within walking distance (Pescatore/ペスカトーレ and Hikari/洋食ひかり) and there were food stands by Ezura Beach in the afternoon. Breakfast was good, typical Japanese "western style". One of the staff gave us a mini tour and a ride to the bus station after we checked out which was really helpful!
Cons: We had a lot of wet things from going to the beach a lot, but no hangers or drying racks minus one so we kind of had to improvise. Most of the room was clean, but the toilet room was a tiny bit dirty and had kind of a funky smell. There were no towels in the room so we had to ask. Location is a bit inconvenient on foot unless you packed pretty light, but would be easy to access by car or bicycle.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The host was very friendly and accommodating, taking us on a tour of the town and arranging details with a rental car agency. We were the only guests at the time and had a good sized traditional studio room with tatami mats and futons. On one side through rice paper screens was a kitchen and on the other, a bathroom. The hotel was in walking distance to cafes, restaurants and the beach. The hotel has a cafe/restaurant downstairs with a band playing some nights, of which the manager is a member.
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: Bar at 1st floor little bit noisy when you are in the room
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff/manager waited for me to till about 11pm, for me to check in. I emailed them and explained my flight will arrive at 3pm and the bus ride would take about 6 or 7 hours to Shirahama. When ever i emailed pension through the app, they was veey responsive and emailed me back asap. Thank you
Cons: I didnt like i couldnt stay longer and enjoy city. I needed a place i could over night and spend the morning in Shirahama. I am looking forwards to staying again.

5.8 Okay
Pros: It was near the beach and the rooms were clean and the room was pretty spacious.
Cons: There's only one bath area for the whole house and it was fully-booked at that time. Our group was only allotted 2 hours per day for bathroom use. Hope they advised us ahead of time with that situation because that greatly inconvenienced us - having a bath area is a major factor in choosing a place to stay in.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and cosy, you really feel at home! We highly recommend this place.
Cons: You need to book time in advance to use the bath/shower room, but that way, of course, you're sure it's free when you go to shower/have your bath (if you are not late :))

8.8 Excellent

7.1 Good
Pros: The staff is super duper friendly and accomodating 100 stars
Cons: The dust is flying around the room
7.5 Good
Pros: the guest house is 10 minutes walk to the beach, friendly staff, the place is clean. Thankful bec they allowed us to check in earlier than 4pm
Cons: There was only 1 hour alloted time for our group of 5 people. Because there was only common bathroom per floor, we were scheduled using the bathroom from 5 pm to 6pm, and so we werent able to use the shower next day morning. It was inconvenient bec we had to use public shower near the beach,and go back to the guesthouse to change clothes.
