Sadie Thompson Inn
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Pago Pago
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We only had the chance to stay here at Sadie's for one night. The staff there was so nice. They were so welcoming. The hotel was in good shape. The room was clean and they pre-turned on our AC before we arrived so we arrived to a cool room. The gal at the front desk was very informative. We need info on transportation and costs. She knew everything offhand.

Food was very good but pricey...it would've been ok if the service was good but it wasn't. That is the least you could expect...if you're paying for an expensive meal you should at least get really good service...the barmaid they had is the manager and I got to say...for a manager...her attire was very unprofessional...short shorts...really??? and her jokes??? its more on the offensive side than it being a funny joke. Everything about the restaurant except for the food was very unprofessional.

The rooms appear clean and comfortable. It is also the cheapest hotel (of the three at the time). There is NO internet. What shades everything was the horrific experience we had at the very pricey ($42 for a steak) restaurant. It is impossible to believe this could actually happen all in one night. Nearly an hour to get the initial drinks and order placed. Several attempts at ordering wine-the Riesling was brought out and it was a red wine, they insisted it was a Riesling. The meals came out at very different times, the folks who ordered fish got it at 25 min, the steaks came out at 45-50 min (by then the fish was cold). So after being there 2 hours we finally got all the food on the table. But the steaks were all covered with some indescribably goo, called 'gravy'. So I guess gravy on a high dollar steak may be the norm in Samoa-but it wasn't mentioned on the menu. If you do take a chance on this place - and it is tempting- Be as specific as possible about drinks, wanting to eat at the same time as others in your party, what you want and don't want on the food and the temperature of the food.

Room Tip: Leave expectations behind

Stay over 4th of July week, Barbara welcoming host, a/c all new and cool, cool, service wonderful, restaurant little pricey so we ate at Sadie's by the Sea that was priced reasonbly and food was good, location wonderful in Pago, across from harbor, McDonald's across the street, located close to Samoan Marketplace that displayed Samoan crafts and food. Would have given 5 stars but after all Inn is close to being 100 years old. GREAT stay on the frontside facing the harbor.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in harbor side rooms

had my 5th visit to Pago in May 2013, stayed at Sadie Thompsons each time. it must be time they changed the name plate on Rm 204 to my name!!
But I cannot speak highly enough of the place. The welcome you get when you first walk in is incredible, and is backed up by top service right the way through. Barbara at the front desk, Oli in the restaurant, Siale everywhere, Tee overseeing it all - what more can you say. And then there is Raych, the most attentive and gracious hostess you could hope for. She even sorted my celphone for me when i couldnt get it to work.They remember exactly what you are drinking, and never let your glass be empty, they serve the biggest and bestest meals in town. The family environment they promote makes Sadies a true home away from home. Having trouble acclimatising to the cold back home which makes one thing sure - I WILL BE BACK.

For the 3rd year we have stayed at Sadie Tompson Inn during May, while our boat is moored across the road in the Marina. Rooms are spacious and clean / tidy. Restaurant has improved markedly this year, with an excellent menu and good portions. Staff are excellent. Very friendly and always helpful. All in all, very good value for money.
