We sat on our patio and gazed at the beautiful scenery when we weren't eating or sightseeing. The location is excellent and the setting is perfect - beach, pool, great restaurant, really good service from everyone.

The location is decent, within walking distance of most major government complexes. The food was okay. The beach isn't much of a draw. And for some reason, the floor was always wet when getting out of bed in the mornings and coming back in the afternoon. I think it was condensation from the AC. Internet access is extremely slow. And... More

Tom-Sadies, Owner at Sadie's by the Sea, responded to this review

Points well taken. It's difficult to explain the wet floors -certainly if it was from the AC it would be puddled below the unit. One review suggests that the floors never get mopped -maybe housekeeping was mopping yours night and morning? Regarding furniture, following some local guests it is always a challenge keeping up with senseless graffiti. I believe that... More

Seems like every time I check-in to Sadies it just goes from bad to worse. Wasn't until the next morning I notice how dirty the rooms are. Housekeepers do not sweep under the beds, or mop the floors, walls could do with some spot cleaning, and furniture was littered with graffiti, scratches and wear and tear. Sadies need to invest...

Good spot right "by the sea". Food was good. Service was traditionally slow like everywhere else on the island but the people's kindness and permanent smiles make up for it. Air conditioning is controlled by the hotel key so it doesn't stay on when you're gone. I would recommend grabbing an extra key from the desk unless you enjoy coming... More

"Private" beach was always trashed. Parties in the evenings littered the beach with bottles, Styrofoam containers, cups, chip bags. Never cleaned. Roaches crawled out of sink drain. Mattress was about 15 years over its life span. Staff pleasant.

We reserved Sadie Thomson Inn for 24 Dec. on 3 Nov. through Expedia. When we arrived at the hotel, hotel was closed. A taxi driver from the airport helped us to contact hotel people. And a staff from Sadie's by the sea came to pick up us. We heard that Sadie Thomson Inn was closed three months ago. I never... More

Very enjoyable stay at Sadie's, during 2 day business trip to Pago Pago. The room was spacious and comfortable, the air conditioning worked well (not noisy) and included free wifi. The bar and restaurant are on the harbour front, with great views and a cool breeze. The hotel also has it's own beach, which looked nice for swimming and sun... More

This is a comfortable place to crash on business! Beds are okay, TV good, Housekeeping Good. They provide everything you need to get ready for the day: Coffee, Tea, Iron/Board, AC, Soap, Shampoo, etc. Pool is almost always empty.

Hotel is great. However I had an issue with my checkout. I was charged for $500 for a broken TV. I checked out and everything was placed back to where it was left prior checking in the room. I am a resident of Samoa and I have stayed in Sadies before. When I called to reserve a room the lady... More
