One of my staff and I visited Chuuk from 9/22-25, 2010, to see one of our TRIO programs there. We had meetings with several state educational leaders as well as our own staff in Chuuk. We stayed at the Truk Stop hotel which was the venue for all of our meetings. The service is still excellent, the location is still ideal and the rate is still outstanding. Our meetings required morning snacks and lunch and we could not have asked for a better service. The quality of the foods and drinks that were served during our two-day meetings were very good, but the most ideal part of the hotel is its location. It is in the middle of the island of Weno which is the seat of the state government. Given the current condition of the road, Truk Stop is the best place to stay for any business or even for pleasure. This is my third visit and I will definitely stay there in my next visit. Our meetings were held at their VIP room with its brand new pull-down screen which was extremely convenient for our power point presentation. The VIP room is inside the restaurant so everything is accessible. There is also a free wi-fi that is available to the hotel guests so my staff and I were able to constantly communicate with our office on Guam. In the evening, the walk to the pier would seem to melt all of your stresses away as you sit, and seemingly drinking the quietness and serenity of the area while watching one of the most spectacular sunsets this side of the Western Pacific. Once the sun is set, you then walk the path way of the pier back to the restaurant, have a glass of wine, have your dinner, enjoy the internet and meet with your friends.........ahhh....... and you call this work........if I am dreaming, please do not wake me up....yet. For hotel and other info, please contact Melba at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will take care of you. I am including three pictures I took of the pier and sunset so you would be able to see for yourself since they are worth more than what I can write.
