A few minutes walk from the ferry wharf is the Savai'i Ocean View Motel with four self-contained rooms with fridge. There's a restaurant/bar (Monday to Saturday 0700-2200).
Farther up before the market is Taffy's Paradise Inn with five rooms with shared bath in an airy European-style house overlooking the lagoon. This place would be noisy if full, but it seldom is.
The more upscale Jet Over Motel, upstairs in the Bluebird Mall opposite the market, has five "budget" rooms with fridge and fan, plus four "deluxe" rooms with kitchenette and air conditioning.
Lusia's Lagoon Chalets, a 12-minute walk south (left) from the Salelologa ferry terminal, offers six garden and four lagoon fale with shared bath and lockable doors, plus two garden, two lagoon, and one honeymoon fale with private bath. The new Matthias block has six rooms with bath on the ground floor, another six rooms on the middle floor, and two VIP rooms on the top floor. Breakfast and some sporting activities are included. Lunch and dinner can be ordered at their restaurant/bar. There's a refreshing freshwater swimming pool right by the shore but no beach. Non-guests can picnic here for a small charge. It's rustic but acceptable.
The Faleaiga Restaurant (weekdays 0830-1500, Saturday 0800-1100), in the store opposite the Ocean View Motel at Salelologa, serves a good plate lunch weekdays per scoup of chop suey or stir fry. There's a bakery here. You can also get a basic lunch at the food stalls in the market, but it and most shops close down by 1600.
Le Ifilele Bar and Restaurant (Monday to Saturday 0700-2200), on the water behind the Blue Bird Mall, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It's good for an afternoon beer by the lagoon.
Evaeva Bar and Restaurant (Monday to Saturday 1900-midnight), a five-minute walf south (left) from the wharf and halfway to Lusia's Lagoon Chalets, has a band playing on Fridays from 2000 (cover charge). The transvestite show Thursdays at 2130 is a lot of fun. Cheap meals are served.
