“Just ok - good budget motel”
Reviewed May 6, 2008

I stayed here for 4 nights in May 2008. If you are on a budget and are just going to Palau to dive, this is not a bad choice since you will be spending most of your time out of the hotel anyway. Very minimal in terms of amenities but clean enough and convenient to the shopping center, restaurants and dive shops.

Overall
I guess I could stay here again but I would request a better room next time.

Positives
- Convenient location. Just off the main road with a supermarket below the hotel.
-Clean sheets and bathroom.

Negatives
-My room (3202) had a strange smell and there was another strong smell from a nearby restaurant when the sliding door to the balcony was open. (One other room I saw was nicer and did not smell).
-Hot water ran out quickly every day.
-Air Conditioner was loud.

Other
Compared to the West Plaza Downtown, this hotel seemed to be better located and a little quieter and cleaner.

Friendly staff, clean room and bathroom, free coffee in lobby, comfortable beds, working airconditioner. I like that there was a supermarket below the hotel (motel). Wlaking distance to other stores, restaurants, schools, etc. Very convenient & safe.

Phone: [--] for reservations.
