Another recommended accomodation is the Toyoko Inn, Daejeon Goverment Complex [Website].

Daejeon also offers a diverse range of options for hotels, easily accessible through public transport (subway being the best way), so we advise a wider search through online hotel booking sites (e.g., expedia, kayak, etc.) to evaluate a broader range of prices/features, which might provide even better rates.
