We were pleased with our stay here; if we came to Molokai again, we would probably choose to stay in a condo where we could cook our own meals, but the location (pretty central on the island) and conveniences of the hotel are nice (and if you're only staying a couple days, you can't beat the price here). There's plenty... More

Molokai is one of the Hawai'ian islands with less touristic infrastructure, which makes Hotel Molokai one of the few choices you have on the island. The hotel is 60-70 style but that's easy to cope with, as the location is fantastic.If you are looking for a place which lacks air conditioning (fans only), but has a lot of nice people... More

So, I read a few of the negative reviews before we stayed here and was a bit concerned. If you are looking for luxury or want to be pampered, stay away. In fact, you probably shouldn't be on Moloka'i either. Me? I loved this place. We stayed on a 2nd floor A-frame with a kichenette, king bed and bathroom on... More

Your choices of lodging on Moloka'i are limited. In fact, the Hotel Moloka'i is your ONLY choice. That said, I enjoyed my two night visit to this facility. The Hotel Moloka'i was built in the early to mid 1960's and is certainly starting to show its age. However, I think that adds to its charm! The buildings are classic "tropical... More

This was my 3d time staying here and most likely the only place I'll stay on Molokai. The rooms are clean, spacious and offer a nice kitchen and lanai. I love the view of the ocean and the hammocks around the property. The staff is possibly the nicest I've ever encountered. Always friendly, smiling and offering their services. I see... More

I was looking for peace & quiet, so Moloka'i seemed the perfect island for me, and I was right! Hotel Molokai is a charming, quaint little hotel on water front (not much of a beach!). The views from my ocean front room & the pool/bar area were calming & beautiful. The grounds are well maintained and lush. It's a beautiful... More

We booked a last minute trip to Moloka'i to escape the hustle and bustle of Oahu. This was our first trip to another Hawaiian island and we needed to be able to travel with our two small dogs. I was having trouble finding a place that accepts pets till I came across Hotel Molokai and I'm really glad I did.... More

Our two nights at the hotel were relaxing! The hotel design and layout is fantastic. We had an oceanfront room, right on the water. Staff were friendly, the gift shop was a nice surprise, swimming pool was refreshing, and the location convenient. Our room and lanai were clean, we would stay here again! While the restaurant was not yet open,... More

There is not much choice in hotels in Moloka'i, unless you are going to stay in an apartment. This is the only regular hotel and we enjoyed it very much! It was our first time on the island and it's very different from the more tourist-inhabited areas. The hotel was nice and the staff were very friendly. The only thing... More

I had no idea that the buildings were an A-frame design! The rooms are small and simple. If you are looking for a perfect place to rest after a day at the beach, hiking or riding the mules to Kalaupapa, this is the place. I enjoyed the ocean view, since the hotel is right off the beach. No A/C needed... More
