Stayed in Molokai for 3 days over the 4th of July weekend. The hotel staff was very pleasant. They let us borrow a cooler for our day at the beach at the front desk and gave us ideas on which beach to go to. The hotel atmosphere is very relaxed and the bar setup nice, right by the ocean and... More

This is a very laid back place, with great people and the best view conceivable in the evening from the restaurant/bar. For the price paid, I would have appreciated a better quality mattress. I was happy without A/C and screens as the fan provided great ventilation and white noise (we had some neighbors with noisy kids, though not late at... More

Perfect spot to do nothing. Views are nice, pool is clean and grounds are maintained. There were very few visitors so had the place to ourselves. Room had no a/c but there is a strong breeze that blows through the louvered windows and screened sliding doors. The lanai had nice table and chairs, there is a small kitchenette, we had... More

Being this is the only hotel on Molokai one needs to keep this in mind when reviewing. Overall the hotel was fine, quaint 60's style bungalows with updated decor. The interiors have been recently face lifted and the beds are comfortable. Currently they are updating many features of this motel to make it more modern and comfortable. That being said... More
