10/10 Exceptional

The DW motel is conveniently located on the Main Street in downtown Koror. It is a no-frills, economy hotel in a convenient lopcation, and as long as you are not looking for resort amenities (and price!), this place is very good. The staff is friendly and helpful, and very good responding to inquiries. We were looking for a convenient, inexpensive, place to catch some sleep while waiting for a midnight flight home, and this place filled that role perfectly.

Great budget motel
Staffs were very helpful, just keep in mind that there are things that they cannot do when the manager is not around, like restocking your favourite beer. There is not much to this motel, which is just fine when you have other priority, like scuba diving. Actually the whole Palau has very little to offer other than scuba diving and related water activities, you'll notice the moment you landed: an airport without air-conditioning. The location is just a bit west to the main strip, so it is quiet. Free filtered water and cooking facilities are provided if you like to take care of yourself. The staffs keep the place clean, but creatures like ants are unavoidable, if you have food in your room, keep them locked and sealed. Wi-fi is inconsistent, at least on the 3rd floor where I stayed.

Palau Through the Eyes of the DW Motel
Hafa Adai: I was truly unaware off the hotel's capacities until I arrived. It was lovely yet hidden motel. It was quiet and truly focused on those that just want to be away. It was far from the general hotel areas, quiet. It was a small hotel and I felt at home. I was not walking a huge reception area, or elevators or expansive hallways. It was exceptionally clean and maintained. Since there are no restaurants at the motel, I needed to eat somewhere. This was not a problem since the eating sites are within walking distance. In addition, small stores were nearby providing my basic daily needs. Palau is a beautiful destination. Nature was all around. Thus I was always mesmerize by the island's landscape, flora and fauna. From my room, I observed the extensive mangrove forest. The motel was a neighborhood location. Families lived surrounding the hotel. I thought this gave me an insight and casual observations of how Palauans lived. The people of the land is the primary asset of any destination. Nearby, the only Public High School of the island is located, Palau Senior High School. Thus, I observed the students daily in the morning and early afternoon when I walked through the main boulevard of Koror.. Adjacent to the high school is the Palau Community College. Not too far, I was able to see the Palau National Museum and certain National State Government Offices. Again, all were within walking distance. Truly, the DW Motel was my home away from home.
