I stayed here for a horse show where I just needed a clean, quiet, simple, affordable place to stay for a longer extended stay. Mauna Loa Motel exceeded my expectations! Upon check-in, they mentioned that they had noted my online request for a quiet room, and they offered to show me two different rooms so that I could choose which... More

Old but clean. Outside and check in office give very negative impression, but room was large, clean, had micro and sizable frig, decent tv. Downside, no blankets on beds, just sheets and comforter, heater worked well but wouldn't shut off until too hot in room, some very small ants around sink in bathroom. Overall not too bad, worth the price... More

We booked this last November as we could not find any rooms or even an airbnb flat for the 2015 Indian Well tennis tournament, the weekend being a Christmas present to our great grandson who is an avid 8-year old tennis player and fan. (The gentleman in 2014 is not a jerk, by the way but kind.) The bed was... More

We stayed here for three days and nights. When you first pull in you think ...... Oooooh, old motel. It is BUT it is a C-L-E-A-N- old motel. The owner keeps the grounds nice too. We saw the pool being cleaned but the owner apologized that he couldn't keep the hot tub hot. Checked out more than one room. We... More

Being that there are only two other reviews on this site and no room photos, I was extremely concerned this place may not be good. However, I was very pleasantly surprised that it was actually very nice for the price we paid. When booking, I was only looking to suit my 4 basic needs; Safety, cleanliness, good nights rest, and...

Quiet and you get what you pay for. Basic no frills, but clean. The bed was really hard and the pillows flat. The shower pressure wasn't so great. But if you are just looking for a place to crash this is it! The management is really friendly and we felt safe there.

Stopped by en route to the big tennis tournament and pulled in here, Kelly, the manager, was very friendly and accommodating. She offered to assist me with my laundry for a low cost. The room was huge and more modern looking inside than I would have thought given the age of the building. there was hot water galore for the... More
