I stayed three nights at the Hotel Molokai at the end of April and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The location is very good, near the center of the southern shore of the island and a very short drive from the center of the largest town on Molokai (Kaunakakai). The hotel grounds are welcoming and the staff is friendly. The rooms... More

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Molokai. The hotel was nice and the staff was very friendly. The rooms were clean and the grounds well kept. The pool and bar were also nice. Unfortunately we had extra guests we were not expecting. Ants, bees, mice, and roosters. We had to spray for ants daily. Our room... More

The hotel was very conveniently located and the view from the bar is spectacular! The manager was extremely nice and the rooms were large and ours overlooked the garden...Since the restaurant was still closed, we brought food from town (at their suggestion) into the bar area every evening and had a fantastic view while eating...The breakfast was continental...

This was our fourth visit to Molokai. We had previously stayed at the Kaluakoi Villas on the western tip of the island, but since the hotel there closed quite a few years ago, we decided to stay at the Hotel Molokai. (We stayed for six nights.) One of the main reasons we wanted to stay here was because we knew... More

We stayed only one night at Hotel Molokai, but wish we had more time there! The service all-around was great. We were able to check into our room early as there was availability at the time. This made it very convenient for us to drop our bags and go exploring right away! The property is rustic and has a super... More

We stayed here for one night before boarding the Safari Explorer. The hotel decor says economy as it is a bit dated, but the beds are comfortable, the wifi worked fine, cell service was hit and miss. Breakfast is good coffee and small grocery store muffins. It sounds like the restaurant will be out of commission for several weeks (months)... More

This hotel (the only real hotel on Moloka'i) is quite lovely. The grounds are kept really well, with some beautiful flowers, and a small little stretch of beach behind the hotel. We were booked as part of a large group, and were supposed to get an oceanfront deluxe room, but every room was booked and they seemed to be putting... More

Great ,central location. Lots of parking. Big room and with the shutters open, nice breeze came thru. We were island hopping, so it was fun to add Molokai to the list. It was only $68 to fly in from Maui. I couldn't get a car 3 weeks out, but checked again the day of arrival and got lucky and got... More

Stayed there with my fiancée for nine days, December 2012 - January 2013. The place was amazing! No air conditioner...please, you DO NOT need one, at least on the second floor. Top windows are just screens, and turning the ceiling fan on will make you feel cold, so no need for conditioner. The room was big enough to fit a... More

Our ocean view deluxe room was tiny, just a bed, desk and small bathroom. Wifi did not work. Apparently it has not for some time. There is no cell phone service at the hotel so I was totally cut off from work. The room looked nothing like it does on the website. Will never go back.
