Let's be clear...I go to Hawaii to get away from the hustle and bustle and drama of every day life! Isn't that why we go on vacation?!?!? So things like "no tv" or "slow wifi" are a non issue for me! What I do love is listening to the ocean, a good view, a great location, friendly people and maybe... More

My husband and I stayed here for two out of the three nights we had booked last year and were quite disappointed with the staff, the room and the pool. There was a huge line to check in when we got there at 2pm and one girl behind the desk made it perfectly clear to everyone that she was supposed... More

Aloha and mahalo for your review. The comments about the staff are not typical of our property as we strive to not only meet but exceed expectations. With that being said, I will be looking into these comments thoroughly as I have zero tolerance when it comes to poor customer service. As far as the property is concerned, I will... More

My daughter and I stayed here for 5 nights. I read the reviews and was a little uncertain I had made a wise choice. We were on a strict budget as this was a quick get together! Don't book here if you are looking for luxury and five stars but if you want an honest clean and comfortable place right... More

The hotel is old and very quaint. I loved my holiday there - it was my favourite of all the islands we visited. We could walk out of our patio door and just a few feet away over a lovely lawn, was the Pacific Ocean with its rolling surf. We had twin beds which were comfortable. The room had a... More

If you do your research, you know what you're getting with this location: a somewhat outdated property with basic amenities. Still, the staff couldn't have been nicer to and more accommodating of me and my girlfriend during our stay. We needed a cheaper spot with a bed to take care of us for one night before hiking the Kalalau Trail... More

Mokihana had everything we needed for the trip: centrally located in Kapa'a, easy access to Waimea (went river kayaking), and the north beaches. Room was clean and comfy, included new coffee maker, dishes and fridge so we could stock up on supplies. Sure, unrenovated rooms were a little worn, but the staff kept everything clean and tidy. For the price,... More

We recently stayed 8 days in this property. We had some reservations, because so many of the reviewers complained so much about the lack of amenities. And it's true, if you're looking for a poolside bar, and chocolates on your pillow, this isn't the place for you. But, what we were looking for was a room right on the water,... More

Basic, basic, basic. This property is difficult to locate, and GPS may lead you astray. Be prepared for a lackluster entrance that looks more like a deserted property. Staff is friendly enough, and the location in Ka'paa affords quick access to basic amenities like a grocery store and such, but activity at this resort is limited. The rooms are very... More

I am not sure how to describe this hotel. So I will stick to the facts and let you be the decision maker. The hotel is more like a motel. We arrived to stay one night. We were given a studio room on the 1st/Ground floor. When we walked in we were in the condition of the room. Lets start... More

The location is about 20min. from the Airport away and easy to find. Shopping opportunities like Safeway, ABC-Store, Panda Express etc. are direct located across the main street. The room furnishing may vary from room to room and is quite functional. No TV in all rooms but a kitchen area with a fridge, some dishes and a coffee machine. A... More
