Owners were really nice and the breakfast was great. The room was big, clean and the facilities were a little bit funky but very cozy. We can really recommend the Manoa Valley Inn an would definately stay there again.

Simply put, there is no place I would rather stay in all of Honolulu. This amazing, historic antique house makes the perfect B&B. Mark and Jena are the most lovely hosts, helpful in every way. Manoa Valley Inn feels like a home away from home. It is both elegant and comfortable. With a stunning view of the city skyline and... More

What an amazing old house, tucked conveniently in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to all the major areas/roads. But the kitsch factor is beyond belief. Frowsy, disorganized but warm and friendly--very much like its owners. A good breakfast when you can figure out the system of getting your eggs ordered. A mix of truly beautiful antiques and tacky garage... More

Manoa Valley is located near the University of Hawaii Manoa campus, not near Wakiki. Our daughter is a student at the university so we wanted accommodations close to her. She was able to walk from campus to the bed and breakfast. We took a taxi from the airport to the inn but rented a car on the campus. The bed... More

Friendly, kind and helpful staff. Interesting guests to chat with and share stories. Quiet neighborhood and beautiful views from the veranda. Away from the crowds but conveniently located. Classy place.

Draped in the cobwebbed canopies of the early 1900s, renovated in 1982, features lingering bits of Victorian ribbon and bows, marble statues of Venus and Cupid, and brass lamp bases carved with freedom fighters engaged in battle -- the Manoa Valley Inn is an absolute delight. The decor -- consisting of crystal chandeliers, rippling silk and creamy lace drapes and... More

We stayed at the Manoa Valley Inn for four nights in early January, 2014. Making reservations was easy, and the staff was outstanding. The Inn is an older mansion in the university area. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. The house was old and beautifully decorated with antiques and artwork from the early 1900s. The furnishings were awesome for antique... More

We stayed at the Manoa Valley Inn for four nights in January 2014 - it was an absolute delight to stay there. We made our booking based on the incredibly convenient location of the property, which is less than a block from the university. However during our stay we were blown away by the hospitality of our hosts, the beautiful... More

Went here for one week over new years. The house was decorated for Christmas and they had a beautiful great tree on the front porch I smelled/inhaled purposely every day as I came and went. The house itself is a historic structure and it is interesting just staying in a house this old on the island. The house is a... More

There are not many true B & B options in Honolulu and if you are looking for a convenient base for Oahu sightseeing, you should definitely consider the Manoa Valley Inn. A rental car is a must as it is located away from the main centers of activity (which is part of its attraction). Free, off-street parking is available although... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Manoa Valley Inn is a Victorian Inn filled with European antiques with a bit of island flair. This Historic Country Inn is an Oahu landmark located in an exclusive area of Honolulu right by the University of Hawaii. The Manoa Valley Inn was built in 1912 and provides a luxurious and quiet experience away from the din of Waikiki for visitors and local residents alike. The Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The prestigious Country Inn is conveniently located within minutes of Waikiki and the downtown Honolulu business district, yet it is surrounded by the beauty, luxury, and serenity of Manoa Valley. Relax in the quiet of the peaceful and spacious veranda and soak up a bit of Hawaiian nostalgia from years gone by. Stay with us, it's a very special surprise. It is an intimate retreat that provides a unique alternative to resort living. The Manoa Valley Inn has six special, spacious rooms and a charming country cottage waiting for you. We are within walking distance to U.H. Manoa, bus lines, restaurants and theater. Relax in our tropical saltwater heated swimming pool with a soft flowing waterfall located in a secluded garden with many trees and flowers. Breakfast consists of island fresh fruits, yogurt, bread, muffins or bagels, cold cereal, coffee, tea & juice, as well as brown rice, oatmeal with plenty of assorted nuts and dried fruits, a variety of tofu dishes and stir fried vegetables .. eggs when served are from an organic farm run by a family member. We buy local products from local organic farms as much as possible.Our Inn has five permanent guests who are 4 friendly and playful dogs and 1 mysterious black cat! E Komo Mai...
