DW Motel - TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2016


At DW Hotel, the safety of our guests is the top priority. The new guidelines for hotel cleanliness entitled “CLEAN & SAFE STAY” ensure the safety and security of our guests and employees. With these guidelines in place, we welcome you with a clean and safe environment, as “the new normal”

DW Motel
 is a budget accommodation of 20 rooms located in Koror, Palau. This South Pacific dive lodging was recently renovated in July 2013, with many added features for guest comfort. A shared kitchen and dining room make it easy to prepare your own meals, relax with your own group, or meet fellow travelers. View our rooms and reserve your room today!

Our quiet environment away from the main road makes for a good night's sleep after a long day of diving or surfing. A short 10-minute walk to town means shopping, restaurants, bars, an internet cafe, and other activities are conveniently located. We're very near Rock Island Café and the Cultural Centre with a handicraft workshop open on weekends for souvenirs. 

DW Motel is one of the best known budget accommodations in Palau for almost 25 years. We're proud recipients of TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence for 2017. A total renovation was completed in July 2013 and the current management team reopened the lodging in August 2013.
