A nicely located spot to stay in MolokaiPosted Oct 27, 2013
Pros: Helpful staff.
Cons: All providers/operators (brochures/leaflets/flyer) should be represented on activity desk at reception instead of only one.
Location: Location a view minutes drive outside town within easy reach of most places of interest.
Efficient check in.

Everything was just okayPosted Oct 27, 2013
Nice location, nice and helpful staff but the facilities are in need of improvement. The pool was broken. The bathroom shower kept backing up with no maintenance staff available to fix it. No restaurant but the staff really made an effort with the bar and grill.

Basic but comfortable and relaxingPosted Oct 15, 2013
Pros: Overall atmosphere. Good size to meet people.
Cons: It's a little tired but no doubt refurbishment would be very expensive.
Location: The hotel is well located to get to all points of interest on Molokai.
Very expensive for what it is nevertheless a good experience.

Perfect place to stay on MolokaiPosted Sep 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is simple and lovely. I had a nice room with a nice patio out back which was nicely shaded. Everything was clean and neat. The location was perfect for all I wanted to see on the island. Hotel Molokai was far enough from Kanuakakai but close enough as well. Loved the bar looking out on the Pacific. Quite nice!

Monopoly on MolokaiPosted Sep 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Room closed up when we checked in - ergo HOT!!! No Air Conditioning, No Ceiling Fan, just a wall-mounted oscillating fan that was marginally adequate. Had to leave door open in the middle of the night to get enough air. Jalousie windows not enough ventilation. Weird architecture so no closets due to sloping wall. South side beach non-existent, shallow rock/mud bottom - very yucky. Molokai not very interesting - toured the length of it in 6 hours. Maybe should have walked/hiked to Kepuhi beach but Papohaku was not that wonderful. Halawa valley nice. Restaurant at hotel destroyed by fire, but they served some okay grindz.

A wonderful place to stay in Molokai.Posted Sep 12, 2013
Pros: Everything. It has the feel of Molokai. We can't wait to return
Cons: Nothing. Leave it as it is, so we can enjoy it again and again.
Location: Two miles east of Kaunakakai. There's swimming and snorkeling within 20 scenic miles, plus Saint Damian churches and the former leper colony.
This hotel precisely fits the ambiance of Molokai, the only island in Hawaii that actually feels like the South Pacific. This is Hawaii as it was before it was "discovered." The hotel is very laid back, quiet, relaxing...everything you want when you visit this wonderful island. It's not touristy, but then neither is Molokai, and the residents, and visitors who love the island, want to keep it that way. No cruise ships, yuppie tourism, families with mismanaged bratty kids, or anything else you go to Molokai to avoid. By affirmative contrast, there are is not one traffic light or elevator on the whole island, just nice people and a few good places to eat simple food...and this hotel that fits in perfectly. If you've "been there and done that," you'll love Molokai and this hotel as one of the few "real" places in Hawaii.

Gorgeous morning ocean viewPosted Sep 6, 2013
Pros: The hotel is right against the ocean and the bar and pool face out into the ocean where you can see Lanai on the horizon.
Cons: Air conditioning in the rooms. The restaurant is also still under reconstruction due to a kitchen fire but should be finished in a few months.
Location: The location is several minutes away from "downtown" Kaunakakai and minutes away from Ali'i Park by car.
We stayed out the Aqua Hotel (aka Hotel Molokai) for one night as it was the best hotel available for a single night stay. The hotel is located right against the ocean and does offer complimentary snorkeling equipment though we did not take advantage of that. The rooms are rather compact but clean and come with a fan, LCD TV, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Parking is ample and free. The hotel restaurant is under repair but there are several restaurants within a 5 minute drive. The staff is very friendly and did provide an overview of the various restaurants near the hotel. Rooms can be on the noisy side - we had a ground floor room and you can hear when the neighbors upstairs walked up and down the stairs or around their room. Our major issue was the lack of AC in the room as it did not cool down until late in the evening.

Friendly, nice, clean, fun!Posted Aug 12, 2013
Cons: The restaurant is not operative currently due to a fire but they are restoring soon.
Really nice hotel. Not a resort but if you're looking to stay on Moloka'i you already know that. HM is clean. Staff are super friendly and super helpful. The little beach area the hotel sits on is fine for wading to relax or take in the sunset. The bar is the place to hang out, have a drink, enjoy the breeze and water. Only 2 miles from town (the only real services)! Our room was spotless and nice. Friday night music (a long tradition of Hawaiian music with great local musicians) was delightful. We felt extremely comfortable and fully welcomed and at home. Very enjoyable stay.
