We stayed at the Hotel Molokai for two nights in July. It was the most peaceful stay that we have had in years. The highlight was the nightly entertainment and the food at the hotel restaurant. Nowhere else on the island offers it. The staff was also friendly and accommodating. I really think we found the best place to stay... More

We visited Molokai because it has not been taken over by the tourism industry and we wanted to explore. We stayed at this hotel because it seemed convenient. It was a wonderful choice. Although the facility is older, it is comfortable and clean. The staff is remarkable however. They are friendly and accommodating, handle requests quickly, and always try to... More

This resort is set right on the beach but does not have much of a beach. They do have paddle boards and kayaks to rent. The live music around the bar and pool is great and the restaurant is delicious! I had the seafood bucket and it was incredible and so fresh! My only complaint is the rooms. They are... More

Nice place, only stayed for the weekend. Had ocean view and it was beautiful to see Lanai. Staff at the restaurant was very friendly and full of Aloha. Kind of wish there was Kamaaina rates. All in all stay was quaint and comfortable.

Very pleasant service along with attentive service was provided along amazing ambiance of being next to the ocean....does it get any better!!! We part of a tour group and this did not seem to phase the staff in any way. This looks like a simple place to come back in the future!

I came to Molokai with some family and friends for rest and relaxation. My family booked a room at the Hotel Molokai and we were extremely satisfied with the accommodations.

My wife and I stayed 7 nights at the Hotel Molokai during June 2016. My wife grew up on Molokai, and were there for family business. We booked a standard room with kitchenette.

One of very few hotels on Molokai. This is centered along the south coast. There isn't that much to do right here as there isn't good snorkeling nor even a good beach. Kayaks are expensive to rent, and there isn't that much to see. That said, sitting at the bar/restaurant and watching the sunset is wonderful. We were also fortunate... More

If my digs at this place were a little larger and had a better view, I would have definitely rated it 5 stars! When I traveled here recently with my girlfriend, we weren't sure what to expect. After seeing how rural the Island of Moloka‘i was, we definitely weren't expecting anything spectacular. And the room we had - a garden... More

Let me start by saying this is not your typical Hawaiin resort as it is on Molokai which gets a very small % of tourists versus the other islands. The hotel is rustic so don't expect high end furnishings/decor...what you can expect is a clean, comfortable room with a small bathroom, mini fridge and patio or deck depending on which... More
