Located just across the street from Ofuna Station. Ofuna itself is only 1 or 2 train stops from Kamakura, but this hotel was vastly cheaper than anything we could find in Kamakura itself, so staying here worked out exceptionally well for us. The room was small but clean and quiet. Staff was pleasant. The bed was comfortable. Shopping and restaurants... More

We arrived in Japan for cherry blossom season and a lot of the Japanese are also touring around, so rooms fill up everywhere earlier than usual. We chose this hotel because it's at the terminus of one of the NEX - Narita Express - trains and a short walk from the station. We wanted to go to Kamakura to sightsee,... More

You get a lot for your money at the Sotetsu Fresa Inn - Ofuna. Take a left from the front of the Ofuna station when facing the Mcdonald's and it's a 3 minute walk. Smallish room by western standards, but super clean, comfortable bed, desk, flatscreen TV, bath with all the essentials, slippers, pajamas, pants press, free tea service and... More

Having traveled throughout Japan in the summer of 2015, my family of 4 stayed in various hotels ranging from very pricey 5 star ratings to 3.5 stars. As with most hotel rooms in Asia, even a quote quadruple room can be relatively small and always expensive. We booked at the Sotetsu Fresa Inn in Kamakura 2 double rooms since they... More

We stayed at Fresa Inn for 5 nights while visiting my uncle who is a missionary priest in town. On the first morning, we woke to head downstairs for breakfast (part of the package). The fellow who cleans the rooms saw that we were larger than the pajamas he had set out for us and motioned to us that he... More

Nice Clean Simple Hotel location Great. Though the pajama/yukata are always a bit too small. Easy to walk to from the station and lots of eateries around the corner. There was a brilliant tonkatsu joint just down the road.

We stayed at the Fresa Inn Ofuna for one night whilst we visited Kamakura. It was a little tricky to find but the staff were very friendly on arrival and let us leave our bags there whilst we headed to Kamakura. The room is small but clean and has fast wifi.

Couldn't be more convenient right across from the train station. Hotel staff were very friendly, always smiling. Rooms are tiny! The bed was right against the wall so you have to roll over your partner to get out or in. No space available to open your suitcase except to take turns putting it on the bed. We had a small...

Great budget hotel with a good location for visiting Enoshima and Kamakura. Hotel is located just a few minutes from the train station. The rooms are somewhat small, but this can be expected in such a hotel. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and breakfast reasonable.

We wanted to stay close to Kamakura, and we chose Sotetsu Fresa Inn Ofuna for its proximity (just 1-2 stations away from Kamakura). Stayed 3 nights in May. The hotel is an easy two minutes' walk to the Ofuna station, with plenty of food choices around, either at small eateries or takeaways from nearby supermarkets/departmental stores. Don't expect much of... More
