Spent a week at the unique Hotel Molokai. While this is, in many respects, a reminder of travel when I was growing up, the staff go out of their way to assure your comfort and someone is always available to answer questions and provide assistance if needed. Manager Michael Drew has assembled a first rate staff that is friendly and... More

We went to maui but did a two night stay in Molokai. Hotel was clean and staff was very nice. It's not a resort to spend a lot a time at, but a perfectly fine place to stay as your busy in your activities.

Everyone we talked to was very nice but then we got to the room. Phone didn't work, curtains were filthy, coffee maker didn't work, no shower head, noise from the road really load, and then they didn't bother to clean the room. Paid too much for this kind of service.

Wonderful, fascinating vacation experience on our 30th anniversary in Room 208, with kitchenette! BEST BAR EVER! Excellent mixed drinks $4-$6 at Happy Hour from 3-5 P.M. Even better yet is the "Manager's Special" with free drinks on Monday. Chat at the bar or check out the stunning scenery a few feet from the ocean (there is a pool also). Stunning... More

This hotel is great. It is like a time warp back to the 1960s. The staff are very laid-back but the service is amazingly friendly. We came here after a 5 star deluxe stay in Honolulu, but each was fine in its own way. Would love to be back again. And yes, you do need to rent a car since... More

The good: - very lovely environment: characteristic buildings, right next to sea, cute bar and swimming pool - very very genuine friendly and helpful staff the bad: - potentially unsafe: (please see my photos) there is no lock on the door to balcony. The sliding screen door is only secured by a latch, and the door came off easily when... More

As far as we know, this is the only hotel situated near the commercial center of the island. But we had hard time finding "Aqua Hotel Molokai." The receptionist told us the hotel is now one of Aqua hotel chain, but the name of the hotel is still Hotel Molokai. It's not fancy(nothing is fancy in Molokai), very basic. But... More

Molokai has just become my favorite Hawaiian Island and the Hotel Molokai is my favorite hotel. The price is a little more than you will be used to paying for a similar property else where but this is not elsewhere remember, Location, Location, Location.

Molokai Island/Hotel was the perfect place to get away from the fast pace and stressful everyday life in Chicago, Il. As a pastor my wife and I had not taken a real vacation in 20 years our dedication to church and Community is our mission. So Molokai was The answer to our prayer. It was very peaceful and laid back.Our... More

As the only "hotel" on the island, we weren't sure what to expect, but this property was great! Nice rooms, staff was very helpful & friendly, located right on the shore of the ocean, just a super place.... The small bar they have was by the pool, and low key, and overall the grounds are very cool..... Definitely hope to... More
