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 water shower and tub, one double bed, one single bed, couch, coffee table, another table and chair for your laptop, fridge and best of all-free WiFi, all at very reasonable prices. Most restaurants, the post office and markets are within a few blocks, but the motel is off the main street and is very quiet. I never once needed a taxi or rental car as the dive shop-in my case, Sam's Tours-provided transportation to and from the motel and everything else was in walking distance. If you do need a rental car to sight see or any tour information the very friendly motel staff will find you a very reasonable deal.
Note that if you are not in Palau for scuba diving or have a non-diving spouse that this motel has no swimming pool and is not on or near a beach.
Included some interior photos of the room I stayed in this year. All rooms are the same (half are reversed). Exterior is rather plain and humble but they do have a great balcony surrounding the exterior of all the rooms with a table with coffee and hot water available all the time as well as chairs and table for sitting outside.
