Lodgings are almost exclusively small, family-run minshuku (guesthouses). Booking through Kumano Travel is highly recommended: this is the only way to book most properties online and will allow you to pay up front by credit card; otherwise you'll need cash to pay at the inns. A room with no meals costs ¥4000 to ¥5000 per person; a room with two meals costs from ¥8000 to ¥10,000 per person.
