Kauai, Hawaii
Reviewed 8 May 2013

This is the only hotel on Molokai. The location, just outside of the main town, is great. We had an ocean front room that had a great view. The room was clean and reasonably comfortable. The one negative was that the carpet was dirty and worn in several areas. As others have said, there is no air conditioning, but the...

Compared to other hotels we stayed at while on this trip to Hawaii, this hotel was overpriced, and the accommodations were....well.....subpar. However, as far as I know this is the only hotel on Molokai, and when there is only one hotel on the whole island, I guess they can pretty much charge whatever they want and offer as much, or...

But then, it is the only hotel in town--or the entire island for that matter. The people who work here are truly fantastic, so helpful and friendly. The room had a few drawbacks, though the bed was super comfortable. I left the placard saying I didn't want my sheets changed, so they didn't make the bed. And the bathroom needs...

Our stay at Hotel Molokai was absolutely wonderful. Their staff was so sweet and informative of the island and had pamphlets on things to do. Kenna was the first person we met when we arrived and she really set the tone for Hotel Molokai. She told us all about the island and gave us information about restaurants, groceries and gave...

My wife & I spent 4 weeks on this fantastic island. There were things to do if you searched them out. There was cool down time and a place to be alone. The people at the hotel were beautiful and genuine. The manager Michael and his crew with Sumu, Kenna, Pua, Andre, William JR, Lana, and others always had a...

I spent several days here with a friend. The buildings appear to be '70s era, but are well-maintained, well-appointed, and the grounds are just beautiful. Hammocks abounds, the pool looks out at Maui, and there is local entertainment on Friday afternoons. Our room had a kitchenette, so with a little shopping in town at the Friendly Market, we were pretty...

The hotel was fine, service was good, but rooster next door kept us awake every night, from 3 a.m. And you could hear all the outside noise through the open air screened area close to the ceiling. Not much to do in Molokai, don't think we'll return.

We recently spent 6 nights at Hotel Molokai and really enjoyed our stay. We had unit 220 which is one of only four waterfront rooms and is a second floor unit without air conditioning. The setting is absolutely gorgeous. We could have spent the week just sitting on the large balcony looking out over the water (which is only a...

We stayed at the Aqua Hotel Molokai for 1 night in February 2013. It is one of only a few hotels available on Molokai. We stayed in a deluxe unit with a kitchenette.

There is not a lot to choose from on Molokai, but Hotel Molokai is good for those used to better places and unable to do better than this on this smaller, less touristy island. Our room was ocean view on ground level and we especially enjoyed breakfast carried from lobby to our own outdoor terrace. The bed was comfortable and...
