A very pleasant and interesting hotel in a good lo

Posted Mar 23, 2014
Pros: I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the chance to stay in a authentic mansion that has a place in Hawaiian history! It is a peaceful oasis!
Cons: The Manoa Valley Inn just needs to keep lovingly maintaining the historic structure and gardens. That is already an expensive and comprehensive task.
Location: The Manoa Valley Inn is situated in a quiet suburban area away from the frantic high rise hotel/beach area. We had a rental car to use.
The Manoa Valley Inn has quite a history. The present owners have done a good job of restoring and maintaining the building and gardens. They have also added authentic furnishings which keep the historic background of the mansion and gardens intact. Each room is carefully decorated and is unique. It is the real deal! As a guest you feel like you have traveled back in history. The gardens are very lush and add to the beauty of the mansion. A special treat for guests is the hidden swimming pool surrounded by the flowering trees and bushes. The delicious breakfast/brunch served on the veranda is another high point to the visit. The protected outdoor surroundings add to the feeling of enjoying your own mansion on a leisurely morning. I'm talking about a full on breakfast with something for everyone. The kitchen staff will also cook "to order" items including special pancakes! I wish I lived closer to the Manoa Valley Inn!

Manoa Valley Inn is a great place to stay!

Posted Mar 20, 2014
Pros: The historical nature of the inn and a really cool bedroom. It was on the third floor, and almost seemed we were in a tree house.
Cons: Parking is a little tight, but we never had a problem.
Location: It is close to everything in Honolulu, and it is easy to get to the major highway. It is also close to Manoa Valley, a very pretty area on Oahu.
We really enjoyed our five night stay at Manoa Valley inn. A very interesting inn with very nice grounds, and a great location. It is close to beaches, Diamond Head and shopping. It is only one block from the University of Hawaii, and close to hiking in the mountains. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the complementary breakfasts in the morning were healthy and interesting. It was great fun staying in a historical mansion with many birds in the nearby trees and sweeping views from Diamond Head to downtown.

It's a quirky B&B

Posted Feb 3, 2014
It is a quirky family run B&B. Quite cluttered with furniture and decorations. For an old house it needs constant attention and many things were being fixed or needed fixing. (I go on holidays to get away from that at home) I ruined a pair of pants with white oil based paint after brushing past a chair or something that hadn't dried. Upstairs bathroom was impossible to shower due to ceiling height, even the toilet was a challenge if you are over 5ft so be aware. They keep several dogs in the house as well.

A memorable stay for all the right reasons

Posted May 27, 2013
Pros: Character of the hotel.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Great views, short drive to downtown and motorway - very accessible.
We'll remember this place - an historic home overlooking downtown Honolulu. Unlike bland chain hotels, this is a place where you can relax in a room with character. A pool with a view to Diamond Head plus fresh and organic food for breakfast, this place is a wonderful experience. This is a place for those who don't want to forget where they stayed because it was just like any other hotel.

Overpriced, far location from everything,

Posted Feb 11, 2013
This an old house full of dogs: dog and cat odor is the first thing you will notice: overwhelming, the pictures are deceiving, dont be fooled by the grand entrance, in reality, its small and nothing grand about it: the dole junior suite where we stayed: small bed and I am only 5'8", bathroom so small that you cannot stand up, have to be bent down while taking a bath, overpriced for $150, far away from downtown and everywhere in waikiki, not worth staying here, staying in waikiki beach area is best,

Historic Bed and Breakfast

Posted Jan 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Manoa Inn is an antique lover's haven. The design of the inn itself and the friendliness of the staff in showing the inn allow visitors to appreciate the reasons that it is on the historic register. It is currently undergoing a renovation which when completed will add more to its charm. However, due to the renovation process, there might be some issues that bother some guests. These include the small, outdoor pool needing cleaned, the outdoor lawn furniture being moldy, and an antique bed that is located on a gazebo type platform next to the pool that is also moldy due to rain. Updates to the B&B include new bathrooms in some of the bedrooms, which previously were without. Given more time to complete renovations, both house and outdoor areas will be delightful to true B&B lovers. We would stay there again.

Very relaxing experience

Posted Jan 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
I was on the island on business and my stay here was wonderful. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the staff very helpful. I was able to park for free on the property, breakfast each morning, and it is very close to the beautiful hikes available right in the Manoa Valley.
