This place is just plain old. The walls are filthy and the rooms are run down. While we had running water there were 3 buckets of water in the bathrooms that smelled of rotten eggs. The linen had soiled spots and the toilet barely flushed. We enjoyed the elephants, but this housing accommodation was terrible. I get it, you get...

And as basic as it looked, it was located well and had a swimming pool with water in ! The rooms are basic, but more or less work. Hot water, if there is any water, is rare, but the swimming pool was welcome. Food was ok, when you got it, but bar was good.

The motel is nice located on a hill above a waterpound, its possible to see some animals from the view point next to the motel. We stayed there for 3 night. The breakfast is a bit poor, small omlett, 3 pieces of bread, jam... But what we experienced was absolutely a no go. We were sitting next to the pool,...

Visiting Mole National Park was the highlight of our trip to Ghana. As the other reviews have pointed out, the hotel is in an excellent location overlooking a series of waterholes where you can watch elephants, several species of antelope and birds. It's even better with a scope. The rooms, although rather uninspiring, are large and comfortable, with air con...

I really don't get the bad reviews on here. Of course the Mole Hotel is a little expensive but that's the case with pretty much every accommodation in any national park all over the world: you just pay a little extra if you wanna stay IN the park. I also didn't find the place run-down, the standard they offer was...

The rooms are rather basic but spacy, clean and complete enough. Especially because you don't need anything more then a bed and a shower with a reasonable restaurant, and more important: directly next to it a swimming pool with an awesome view of the park include having breakfast and lunch together with the elephants some yards away. The staff is...

Mole Motel has a fantastic view, a good pool and restaurant, and decent rooms which come at very low rates. The rooms are comfortable, but haven't been properly maintained for years. In between safaris is great to hang out by the pool, enjoy the view and chat with other guests.

We stayed three nights. Great view. Friendly staff. Awesome spot to relax. Proximity to wildlife (elephants, warthogs, birds, etc.), made for an exciting stay. Simple, clean rooms, no frills. Good food, just on the upper edge of being expensive; order well in advance! The pool was nice, but could use a cleaning. Great location next to the park headquarters and...

This hotel is quiet old and needs a lot of refurbishment to raise its standard to a budget facility. It is now overshadowed by the Zaina Lodge nearby and must do well to improve its standards. everything in the room from towel to tvs needs upgrade. A total overhaul is required.
