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

We stayed a week at the Hotel Molokia. The people on the island and at the hotel are truly amazing. From the time we got off the plane to the time we left everyone was eager and willing to help.

Nice accommodations, but what really makes this hotel is the staff. Each and every one was friendly, helpful and honestly interested in our having a great time. The room we had was first floor, ocean view, no air conditioning, but it wasn't necessary. You can leave the lanai door open (screen door locks) and turn the fan on...perfect sleeping!

We stayed here for one night on our overnight visit to Molokai. It was a nice hotel, I'd call it rustic, with adequate beds, our room didn't have A/C, we slept with the patio window open (screen closed) and a rotating stand fan was already in place in our room. The bathroom and bedroom were fine and this island has... More

The good and the bad: The place is cheap and right on the ocean (NO BEACH/NO SWIMMING IN OCEAN). The view from the bar is amazing if it was whale season this would be the place to sit and watch them.
