We stayed at Sadies by the Sea for a week. The staff was exceptional, always willing to listen, talk, make suggestions and work with us. American Samoa is very humid and can be very hot. This causes moisture build up (mold/mildew) in rooms if not adequately vented. Our first room had problems with condensation on the air unit however when I mentioned this, the staff moved us to another room. We had no cell phone service (ATT) but that was sort of nice! Also internet was sporadic.
Loved being by the ocean and close to town. Bus transportation picked up outside the hotel and cost only a $1 to go anywhere on the island. The hotel shuttle picked us up at the airport and took us for our return trip home.
If you come with the right attitude, American Samoa can be a paradise and Sadie's by the Sea awesome but if you come with a poor attitude expecting 5 star accommodations, I would suggest staying in Hawaii.

"Very Nice People; Decent hotel in an awesome place"
The folks at Sadie Thompson inn were extremely nice and easy to deal with. They were helpful, and gave excellent recommendations on travel and dining. The view from the porch upstairs of the harbor and sunset were pretty good. Wish there was a little more hot water in the mornings though!
The on site restaurant is good, as are the korean/japaneese restaurant and the McDonalds across the street. The store adjacent to the hotel has plenty of clothing for souvenirs at fair prices. Can't wait to go back to Samoa!
