If do not know who W. Somerset Maugham was and have never read his short story "Rain" look for a different place. Do not confuse this with the one of the other hotels Sadie's by the Sea (not the original building for Rain). He called it a dilapidated rooming house in 1916 and set the story of Sadie Thompson there...

I did not get to stay at the hotel on this trip as was staying at the lovely Sadies by the Sea down the road, but did dine at the restaurant at Sadies Thompson Inn. I ordered the steak and it was one of the best steaks I have had. Cooked to perfection. Service was excellent - Barbara the waitress...

My wife and I stayed here three nights, never had a key to our room, the cable TV didn't work and on Sunday night we got locked out of the hotel only to have a very kind pastry chef let us in. We were the only ones in the motel and ended up locking it all up before we went...

I recently spent two weeks here while doing college research in American Samoa. For a college student will almost no money, I ended up selecting this hotel over the pricier ones, but I could not have been happier with the experience. The location was prime, with everything I needed right in walking distance. The staff was wonderful, friendly, and helped...

I stayed here for 10 days on a business trip. If I ever return to American Samoa, I will definitely stay at Sadie Thompson Inn again. The staff was absolutely amazing and the bar/restaurant was top quality. A 5 star experience for a great price!

Didn't stay here but had a lovely dinner here in a truly quaint dining room. Soft music in the background. Very good meal at a very fair price. Service was great although our young waiter seem not totally comfortable with English. Would recommend.

I'm surprised to see negative reviews here, since we had a pretty decent experience overall. Yes, there was no Internet - but for a one night stay, that isn't a catastrophe. The restaurant was elegant and again, for the island, reasonably priced with decent food. My prime rib special ($25) wasn't outstanding - a bit undercooked, and a smaller portion...

We only had the chance to stay here at Sadie's for one night. The staff there was so nice. They were so welcoming. The hotel was in good shape. The room was clean and they pre-turned on our AC before we arrived so we arrived to a cool room. The gal at the front desk was very informative. We need...

Food was very good but pricey...it would've been ok if the service was good but it wasn't. That is the least you could expect...if you're paying for an expensive meal you should at least get really good service...the barmaid they had is the manager and I got to say...for a manager...her attire was very unprofessional...short shorts...really??? and her jokes??? its...

The rooms appear clean and comfortable. It is also the cheapest hotel (of the three at the time). There is NO internet. What shades everything was the horrific experience we had at the very pricey ($42 for a steak) restaurant. It is impossible to believe this could actually happen all in one night. Nearly an hour to get the initial...
