The West plaza is one of the older hotels in Palau but I quickly found out had better service than the newer ones, the staff are very helpful and are always willing offer advice. The rooms are not fancy but they are a decent size, clean and seems that their housekeeping pays attention to detail. The Red Rooster restaurant is... More

I was in Palau just for the diving so did not need a hotel with many attractions and amenities. Rooms are basic but very clean and the bed was comfortable. There is no wifi in the hotel - I would head down to Coffee Berry on the Main Street for a coffee and to use their wifi - and I... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of our Oceanic Society snorkeling expedition. The building is old and a bit beat up, but we didn't want to spend $$$ on a place to stay anyhow. It was perfectly adequate once we changed rooms. The first room we were given had a very strong odor of either old smoke or mildew... More

Who goes to Palau to hang out in a hotel all day? Clean rooms, good showers, and a restaurant that is a step above fast food. In a place like Palau you don't need anything else. For the price and quality service this place deserves 5 stars. The hotel has a small staff, but any time I had a question... More

My husband and I stayed here on our recent trip to Palau. The hotel was perfect for our needs. It wasn't anything fancy, but the room was a decent size, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was good enough for us (the water really only ever got warm, but the temperature was consistent and comfortable). There was a TV,... More

We preferred to spend more money on diving than hotels so we ended up getting this one. The view on the water at night was nice, the room was OK for the money spent. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was OK.

hotel is very very basic.....small rooms....small bathroom (although fully functional). everything's clean and there's a dumbwaiter-style elevator to move your luggage up and down floors, but you take the stairs. TV gets two channels from Australia, and when we were there they were showing the same program, so more like one channel. Air conditioner worked well, which is critical in... More

This Motel was priced right. The room was small, but the shower was hot. The little restaurant carried their own beer,which was fun. The food was ok. The location was by the water. Some days the water was really beautiful. It was not a swimming beach. I had looked at a lot of accommodations and this is not a cheap... More

While relatively economical, I was generally disappointed by my recent stay. On the plus side, the hotel is very clean with a strong shower and the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. However, the room is ultra-basic with two TV channels (!), no Wi-Fi, and an extremely lumpy old mattress. If your room faces the street, you'll hear every car... More

By the sea, or seaside, as the locals called it is on the way to one of the docks. Both sides look out onto the sea, which at sunset was quite pretty. However the hotel is quite dull and dark. Our room had an outside walkway to get to it which meant we had to keep the curtains closed, so... More
