Although we had limited time in American Samoa, we learned quite a bit about the country and what to expect while there. Sadies seems to be one the more established hotels on the island but given that, don't expect too much. The staff was friendly, allowing us to change rooms after the first night. We checked in quite late and found that our room looked out over the back of the beach bar and they were happy to move us the next day. The room was very ordinary, but quiet and clean. The grounds appeared to need a lot of attention, although the beach and pool areas were cared for and clean. Because the bay on which Sadie's is located is also home to a refinery, a cannery, and the island's major port, we did not sample the water for swimming. Despite other reviews, in our 4 nights there we had no problem with any pests. They seem to have that issue under control. The bar/restaurant was loud late into the evening, so ask for a room at the other end. Our room, on the ground floor, allowed easy access to the pool and shore area.
Once off the main road the island has a lot to offer if you are willing to search it out. Sadie's made a good "base camp" for our exploring.
