Due to the small size of Japanese apartments, the Japanese custom of entertaining outside of the home, living with parents and other reasons (including convenience), the love hotel industry has been flourishing.
You may wonder how much they cost to stay in. You're in luck as City-Cost.com has an article that will tell you.

Sandwiched as we are between Valentine’s Day and White Day (here in Japan, at least) it seems as good a time as any to further facilitate feelings of love and lust by opening the doors to Japan’s default location for doing that which your mom and dad told you never to do: love hotels / ラブホテル.
There are plenty of blogs, mad photos, and intros out there about love hotels. What we want to do here is find out how much money you’re going to need to get in, do what needs to be done, and get out, and hopefully avoid knowing glances from people in the street, Oh yea! We know what you just did, you!!
