We stayed here 10 nights on a dive trip in May 2012. When we arrived at the airport, someone was waiting for us (as well as someone from Sam's Tours regarding our diving the next morning!). When we first got to our room, it was hot--it would be nice if they had turned on the A/C in anticipation of our... More

What a gem. This is reasonably priced , clean comfortable and the family who run it will do anything to assist . The location is fabulous only about a ten minute walk to town and you will save on accommodation to be able to do more tours of the rock islands (amazing). Some of the other similar priced accommodation are... More

I discovered family owned and run, Guest Lodge Motel last year and liked it so well I went back this year for 17 days. They have airport pick-up and delivery which is important as the flights mostly arrive and depart in the wee hours of the morning. The rooms are quite large and spacious with free TV, air conditioning, hot... More

I debated very seriously where to stay in Palau for my vacation and felt that this hotel was going to give me the best value for the money, and having stayed there, I feel that I made the correct choice. The room was spacious and comfortable with a wicker couch and chair and a double bed and an additional single... More

This is a basic motel, but for the price, location and service, it is hard to beat. We flew into Palau at about 11 pm and they were there to pick us up for the 15 minute ride to the motel. The room was large, basic, and worn down, but the linens were clean and everything was in working order.... More

If you want a clean, comfortable, affordable hotel with excellent service then you can;t do better than this. Sure, it is a bit shabby, but the rooms are spotlessly clean and the lovely woman who runs the place more than makes up for it. It's a tiny bit off the beaten track but you can still walk easily to restaurants... More

Can't add too much that other reviewers haven't said. Despite the horrible hours that we arrived and departed from Palau, the Guest Lodge picked us up and dropped us back off at the airport (we stayed more than 2 days). The management was very helpful, always asking if we needed anything. On our first day it poured and they arranged... More

Excellent value. Nice clean large rooms, refrigerator, satellite TV (but no movie channels, sorry), great hot water (heater right in the bath, no wait for hot water!), phone with free local calls, very pleasant, friendly and helpful staff.

I am currently staying at this motel for 9 weeks, and leaving Palau in 10 days' time. They offered me a good long-term rate, and can also offer a slightly discounted rate (from their normal rate) if you bargain (politely, of course). Please note, this is a motel and not a hotel. It is great, especially for divers who'd rather... More

“Take extra bug spray just in case. Loose high expectations for a romantic place. Just enjoy the budget experience.”

“Room 213 has a fridge and workable microwave, might be worth the few extra bucks if it is something you would use.”

“If you get pickup service from this hotel make sure to remind them you are coming (with time of arrival) the day before and take their phone number with you. If they do not show up call them or have someone at the Palau Visitor Bureau call them. They were late picking up every one of us. Ask for a room in the front. The balcony is nice.”
