This hotel exceeded expectations. The staff were outstanding and very friendly. John took us out to get hot bread. Dorine made our wives feel special. Beautiful music around the pool every night. I could watch whales jumping in the ocean from the picnic table by the pool. The restaurant had excellent food. The grounds were kept clean. We felt safe...

We stayed at Hotel Molokai for 3 nights and were very happy with its friendliness, cleanliness and amenities. It's about 1.8 miles from Kaunakakais centre (which can be walked if you don't wish to drive - or haven't rented a car) and about a $35 taxi ride from Molokai Airport. The hotel has a small gift shop, laundry, atm, restaurant...

This is just what we were looking for during our stay on Molokai. It had been thirty years since I visited Molokai and I was so thankful for the overall experience. Keep in mind that Hotel Molokai is not a large luxury resort, it is a quaint little hotel right on the water. The staff was so friendly and helpful,...

On this island, there's not many choices. I chose to stay in the main city b/c though I like going off the beaten path, I appreciated being close to the main city in this already off the beaten path island. Hotel Molokai's best asset is it's location on the water, though there is no beach. There's a pool that during...

Never been to Molekai and this is I believe the only hotel on the Island and is also a resort. It is about 20 minutes from MKK airport. 25$ cab ride. A really quaint place - ate by the sea but in the restaurant. I would love to stay here again with my wife. Nice rooms and I had my...

There is no better place than this to have a simple no frills vacation. Just the water, gentle breezes, stars above and authentic Hawaiian hospitality. Beautiful music every night. Delicious food offerings and clean, moderately-well maintained rooms. Friendly chickens are a bonus.

Molokai is a sleepy little island, chalk full of pleasantry and unexpected charm. But if you're expecting world class luxury or even standard resort luxury, don't bother booking the trip. Hotel Molokai is a lovely as the island itself, which is mostly unchanged, and unapologetic for being so. We were welcomed with Aloha spirit and every effort was made to...

Great place for family. Had small kitchenette with loft and 2 extra beds. King bed was comfortable. However, the room we had had a giant screen window without glass for cover and a tree full of birds outside. The birds welcome you to the new day at about 5am. Not so great when trying to sleep in.
