Hotel Molokai was perfect for us. It is located right on the beach with gorgeous sunsets. The pace is quiet, but interesting, as they have live music by many of the talented local folks every evening. Friday evenings, there is a group they refer to as "the elders" who sing and play Hawaiian songs. The staff was very friendly and... More

Most people who visit Molokai stay in condos. Several reasons for this. Only one hotel and limited restaurants. We were only on the island for two nights so the hotel was best for us. We enjoyed staying here. It is right on the ocean. We watched whales breaching toward Lanai while eating breakfast. The rooms are simple but clean. There... More

The owner even came with glutenfree crackers... More

First of all, if you are looking to be pampered in the lap of luxury, Moloka'i is not the island you are looking for... I wanted to unplug and relax, and Hotel Moloka'i was almost perfect. The room was big, my pillows and extra pillows were fluffy, and the kitchen let us enjoy the fruits (haha) of the farmers market.... More

I love this hotel. We stayed here for a week. Very relaxing on the first couple of days but then it got boring at the end of our stay. It is a very good place to stay towards the end of your vacation for 2-3 days and not for a whole week with children. Nothing much to do.

This hotel was a perfect compliment to my visit to Molokai. The room was basic, but always clean and had everything I needed. The grounds are well-kept and the staff was always friendly. The flora and palm trees throughout the premises add a nice touch, and there are hammocks here and there for lazing. My room did not have an... More

This is an old but well kept property. The staff was helpful, the food (newly re-opened restaurant) was good, and the evening music delightful. If you want something like a fancy Waikiki resort, this might not be for you. But if you want charm, quiet and nice oceanfront location, this can fit the bill. And currently it is the only... More

This place is cute and very well maintained. The rooms are small but well appointed. We stayed in an oceanview room so did not experience the traffic noise others did.
