This was my third time staying at Hotel Molokai, and, as usual, I was not disappointed in the least. The grounds of this hotel are so lush and serene, and the rooms take you back to a time when you would expect to walk out your door and see Elvis or Don Ho walking up the path. The beds are... More

Jan. 31, 2016 – Feb. 6, 2016 visit to Hotel Molokai, Hawaii. My wife and I visited Hawaii for approximately two weeks, spending the last week on the island Molokai and staying in Hotel Molokai. The Hotel was rustic and cheerful looking as we pulled in. The staff that greeted us was friendly and helpful; however we were soon underwhelmed... More

Molokai is not a luxurious island. You'll go back in time, longer than 50 years. This hotel is the only game in town. Otherwise, you'll need to rent a condo, house, or brave a B&B. If this hotel seems too primitive, I suggest you consider another option. Simple, but large rooms, no a/c, expect a fan. Mini fridge, mini coffee... More

This property is truly amazing: the location, the nature, the hotel itself and the friendly staff. I spent one night there, because I was heading to Hui Ho'olana retreat the next day, and it was probably my best night in Hawaii and a great introduction to the Hawaiian culture. First, the accommodation was awesome - the room had so much... More

This is the ONLY hotel in Molokai - get the picture? Staff is very nice and they do their best. That's the good news. The rest of the story is that very few rooms are air conditioned. Who knew? I have been staying in hotels since the late 1950's and this is my first experience staying in one where A/C... More

Convenient location. Rooms are in Hawaiian-inspired individual buildings with one ground-floor and one upper-floor unit. Rooms not air conditioned, but fan and cross-ventilation through louvers keep the room cool though it can be humid depending on the time of year. Cell and data service are not great - this hotel (and Molokai in general) is a place to "unplug." However,... More

We stayed 2 weeks at Hotel Molokai on the island of Molokai, Hawaii. We loved the room which had a king bed and kitchenette. The bedding was clean and comfortable and the towels white and fluffy but some detail in the room needs attention as far as what you would expect in a 4 or 5 star rating. The grounds... More

A very nicely maintained facility: clean room, tidy grounds, adequate amenities. Our ocean view room was very pleasant and isolated from the main complex of garden view rooms. The room could use an updating of the bathroom and sliding patio door. Maid service was very attentive and thorough. Front desk service was somewhat lackadaisical as was the 'concierge' staff. The...

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
