This was our first time going to a bed and breakfast. Walking out on the varanda in the morning was such a pleasant way to start the day. Birds in the yard, smell of beautiful flowers and a fresh arrangement of fruit was wonderful. The view in the evening was just fabulous. After one drive to Honolulu at night, we decided to stay close to home in the evening. A bottle of wine, wonderful guest to enjoy and a view that was beyond compare - this was Hawaii! We are from a small town in Washington and we felt very safe staying at the Manoa Valley Inn.

Not enough room to complain fully.
Section 8/student housing next door which means screaming kids and drunks. Cranky owners, terrible parking, no services except toast and fruit which are gone by 9am. our expensive cheese was frozen solid in the in room mini refer, the owners' dogs run around and you get flea bites on the back porch ("veranda" they call it). Pushy and rude owners as well. We were here for a wedding, can't believe we wasted our money on this waste of valuable real estate. Mildew in the bathrooms, the owners kept turning off the fan in our room (I guess to save money) which meant the place was muggy all the time. The place was having work done and the workers (and the owners) regularly blocked in guest's cars in the lot.

after spending four nights ($120 and $160 per night) for two different rooms, I feel comfortable writing this review. Upside - in a quiet neighborhood with gorgeous landscaping in the backyard, 1.9 miles from Waikiki. The house was built in 1912 with a massive amount of wood from the N.W. I had no issue with the decorations or bedding, but the bathrooms were not re-stocked daily with simple things like soap, tp and shampoo. We had both a private bath and a shared bath (needs a new shower) on this visit. While the veranda was very nice, everything there was rather dirty. The in-room literature said we could use beach towels, but the owner was very put out about getting us the towels when I (very politely) asked after I had mentioned we were going to the beach one hour earlier. After the second day, I found it easier to talk with her husband (if you can find him) and avoided her at all cost after having more run-ins with her. Not the best host. The 'breakfast' would be considered continental by most standards, not a b & b breakfast. I would recommend different managers to bring the place up to snuff, then it would be fabulous.

Unbelievable that they dare offer rooms here. The place charges top dollar for rooms that are musty, dusty and fading. for our room we had to cross the living area, the hallway, the owner's dining room and the pantry to get to our "private bath" which though clean was poorly ventilated. The door connecting to the living room from our unit could not be locked. A fact which Theresa dismissed: "With oh yes, those old doors." The other door which led outside was difficult to lock because the handle kept falling off. "Breakfast" as noted by another reviewer was so far from the expected standards of B and B's as to be unworthy of the name. The windows were covered with sheet like fabric that did little too diminish the intensity of the searchlights shining through our windows. It was like trying to sleep on the beach. (Which would in every respect have been more pleasant.)

There must be something good to say. Oh yes, the verandah is lovely, but since they had workmen pounding on cabinets there , it's loveliness was diminished to say the least.

The owners need an education in what even a minimal B & B is.

My husband and I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts and inns over the years and have had wonderful experiences. Until now.

The Moana Valley Inn was a major disappointment. The staff was nice enough but the inn lacked the usual thoughtfulness and care that typically accompanies inns and B&Bs.

From the faded comforter on our bed, to the peeling paint, to the can of "Raid" ant killer in our bathroom (in plain sight!), to the day old newspaper at breakfast, to the raggedy landscaping, it was evident that no one cared. And we stayed in the most expensive room in the inn - the Alexander Cottage - described as an ideal spot for honeymooners. It did not inspire romance at all.

Breakfast, typically a place for B&B's to shine, was dismal. All we got to eat was a fruit plate and piles of white bread with a toaster. That was it. Drinks included some sort of fruit punch, coffee, and tea.

The location for breakfast was the back veranda, which had a wonderful view of Honolulu. That and the friendly cat "Yoda" were the two highlights of the inn. Everything else was disappointing.

Note: They have two dogs in addition to the cat.
