Best Hotel in Molokai.

Posted Jan 25, 2015
Pros: The quaintness, which matches the island. The bar was also great.
Cons: They need to get the restaurant rebuilt ASAP. Island dining is limited.
Location: Pretty spot, about 2 miles from town. You need a car as most things to do are 30 minutes or more away.
If the restaurant was open, and one could swim at the beach, it would be a perfect fit for the island. The view was great and the grounds are well kept. The staff was very responsive, and we were able to delay checkout until late afternoon.

Wonderful hotel - great sunset view!

Posted Jan 20, 2015
Pros: Everything
Was very surprised at the luxury feel of this hotel. King sized bed in a very large room with a wonderful balcony. We were more than comfortable. Sat near the bar in the evening for a (wonderful) drink and had a perfect view of the sunset.

Only Game in Town

Posted Jan 19, 2015
Pros: Staff was great!
Cons: New beds would be an improvement.
Location: Not much within walking distance but town is a short ride away.
This is the only hotel on Molokai. There are also a few condos, B&Bs, etc. With that in mind, the staff was very helpful and demonstrated the aloha spirit. The facility is old but has been partially renovated to make it as pleasing as possible. The grounds and pool were well-kept and we enjoyed our stay. A light breakfast consisted of packaged fruit cups, packaged muffins, apples, coffee, tea, water, & bread. I was surprised there was no fresh tropical fruit or juice. There is also a bar but no restaurant (currently). Our room was just okay. Two uncomfortable twin beds and a few mosquitos. Shower was good. No A/C but we didn't need it. A long offshore reef makes the ocean shallow and muddy in front of the hotel. You would have to drive to a swimming beach. I would stay here again.

Older hotel but centrally located

Posted Jan 14, 2015
Pros: Staff was great! Asked if we could get a late checkout and we got it!
Cons: Once the restaurant opens, this place will be a whole deal!
Location: Southern part of Molokai, centrally located, near main town (more like a village). This is a quiet island.
Wanted to see Molokai and experience the mule ride to Kalaupapa (the leprosy settlement) and found Hotel Molokai on line. There are condos for rent but most wanted a minimum of 3 nights and we were only there 2. This hotel is centrally located and in the process of rebuilding its restaurant which we were told burnt down in a fire a while back. The room we had was equipped with a kitchenette and had a nice balcony. The architecture is unusual. There is a small pool and a bar that has Happy Hour each afternoon. The place was rockin' when we were leaving on Friday evening since they have great shows with locals on ukulele and guitar.

The best short term stay in Molokai

Posted Dec 28, 2014
Pros: True hawaian flavor small and quiet
Cons: restaurant could be up and working
Location: Not too much to do close recommend renting a car to tour the island. Could walk to town around a 1 1/2 mile walk
We have been to Molokai several times now over the past ten years. We dearly love this quiet little island however this was our first time staying at the hotel. The main reason we booked was in the past they had a great restaurant. However to our surprise the restaurant burnt down a couple years ago and is now under construction being rebuilt. With the restaurant up and working it would be an excellent place to vacation.

Helpfuf staff, good price

Posted Dec 14, 2014
The frienday staff is what makes this a truly unforgettable experience. Diamond &precious welcomed us warmly and helped us to with suggestions for hiking and eating. The took the time to give us direction. My only suggestion are to put more fresh tropicsl fruits and locally made baked goods on the "continental" breakfast. WiFi would be good cell phone coverage weak outside the town. We are from Honolulu. And the sliding screen door is not very secure. We would definately stay here again.

Great getaway for a quiet, stress-free weekend

Posted Nov 19, 2014
Pros: The sunset is lovely. The rooms are clean. The wifi is beyond helpful because of the limited phone service on the island.
Cons: A restaurant on the property would be great, though not having one gave us the opportunity to explore. Hopefully it will be completed soon.
Location: Not much to do on Molokai but that doesn't mean your time there will be bad. The lack of traffic was awesome. The untouched scenery was spectacular.
The hotel was charming, clean and right on the water. There isn't much to do on Molokai but relax and enjoy the scenery. Next time, I'll spring for an ocean view room, though my garden view room was amazing. The staff at the hotel was friendly and very accommodating.

Great hotel on laid back island

Posted Sep 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
We loved the rooms and atmosphere at Hotel Molokai. The rooms are nicely renovated, the bar is great, and the hotel is right on the beach. Locals seem to love the bar, and restaurant, which is currently being reconstructed after a fire, I believe. Yes, the rooms at least on 2nd story are open and loud with the all night road traffic (which was surprising, given the slowness of the island). Luckily ear plugs are provided. Hotel staff was wonderful, we would definitely recommend and stay here again.
