Truk Stop Hotel is a family run hotel close to the town centre of Weno. It has 23 rooms, some with a view of the ocean and all are air conditioned and have private bathrooms and balconies.
Truk Stop Hotel is just a short walk into the centre of Weno and less than a mile from the international airport. There are fifteen large islands in Truk Lagoon with Weno being the largest and also the capital island of the Federated States of Micronesia.
The hotel is an ideal base for your wreck diving adventure, if you are looking for simple, good value accommodation. The Truk Lagoon Diver Centre, which operates from the hotel, offers good technical diving facilities with two dive boats offering up to four dives a day. Nitrox and decompression gas mixing as well as a comprehensive scuba equipment repair service is available.
In the Truk Stop Hard Wreck Cafe there is a reading room, 40 inch TV and DVD player where guests can review their diving footage and still photographs.
The Truk Stop Restaurant offers a large selection of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Freshly caught seafood features regularly on the daily menu as well as Micronesian and Asian specialities.
Cocktails and a range of alcoholic and soft drinks are served in the outdoor Patio Bar and in the Hard Wreck Cafe, where there are comfortable seating areas, a TV and a pool table, snacks and drinks are available.
Facilities at the hotel include a gift shop, free wi-fi in the restaurant and adjoining lobby and there is a small spa offering massages, manicures and pedicures.
Cars are available to rent if you wish to explore the island by yourself, or you can take one of many guided land tour options to visit such places as the old Japanese communications centre, the heavily battle-scarred Sapuk Lighthouse, or to see the impressive Tonata Guns and Caves.
Island excursions are also available and guests choosing not to dive can enjoy snorkelling and kayaking from the private dock.
