Stay in hotel 4 or 5 times now. Its a pleasant hotel little basic , dated and i would say caters for the Japanese business man and local traveller who come to see Hikone Castle. Also weekend i think it caters for the wedding ceremony and parties. In last 2 year they have only installed free LAN connection for internet which is good for business travel like me. Rooms are clean reasonable for Japan. nice view of the castle if you get room facing the road. Staff are friendly little nervous of foreginers as their English skills are limited generally find couple older gentlemen behind reception speak OK English. You only get 2 chooses of breakfast Japanese or American it worth trying both for the experience. Breakfast is not huge but sufficient small dishes of various types all very tasty. If you stay longer than few days breakfast may get little boring due to limited choose.
I took Shinkansen to Maibara from Nagayo after arriving at Chubu International hotel. Then decided to take local JR train just one stop to Hikone 180yen then 10~15min walk to hotel. I use to take taxi from Maibara station cost around 2500yen but for the fun take train.
