Room facilities are not so good or clean for "hotel" but I feel like in my room. In the night, you can go to town in just 10 minutes for famous molokai hot bread. And there are some hammocks to relax or see stars at night. The hotel is not big, so each can enjoy by her/his self and meet... More

We had a wonderful time at Hotel Molokai. The entire team is accommodating and extremely hospitable. The rooms are simple but have everything you need. I highly recommend the Ocean Front rooms - the view from the balcony is absolutely stunning. We will definitely be back.

I love Hotel Molokai. I stay here about once a year with an event. Hotel Molokai is not the Ritz, the Hyatt, or the Four Seasons. It is classic, vintage Hawaii. Variety of room types - I usually stay in the one w/a king bed plus 2 twins, along with a mini kitchen (fridge/sink). It's not fancy, but gets the... More

Once you familiarize yourself with the critters, you'll have a great time. Quiet and ample accommodations, on site eatery and bar. Not all units have A/C, so if you are in need of air circulation, be sure to ask first or bring your own. Beautiful views of Maui and Lanai. If in Molokai over a weekend, be sure to visit... More

Moloka'i is a must if you're going to Hawaii, and Molokai hotel is the place to stay. Nice room, helpful staff and good restaurant make the right place to be in the island. Well placed in the middle of the island, is a few miles of everywhere.

I hate to give this property a bad review because the staff are very nice and sincerely try to accommodate their guests. The island of Molokai is so peaceful and beautiful, why stay in town in a hotel adjacent to the highway, listening to other guests' televisions through the thin walls? We stayed here one night and promptly checked out... More

You'll not find luxury here, nor the latest amenities. In fact, it's more likely you'll see Luci and Desi pop out of this classic beachfront hotel, pretty much known as "the hotel" on the island.

Visitors to Molokai will find lean pickings on hotels . Local people like it that way because it protects their way of life. Hotel Molokai is the last man standing of this genre.
