At the time we booked our stays for our holiday, this was the only one available. And we didn't regret that. The room was nice, with a patio. For the kind of room you get the prices are pretty high. Especially compared to other Hawaiian islands. Be sure to rent a car, to explore Molokai. This island is still pure...

Twilight birds chimed in at the open-aired reception area as hostess Puoi welcomed and pleasantly detailed the Hotel Molokai layout and amenities. A short stroll to our room and the bar/pool/ocean view area revealed a boutique island paradise that their web-site photos didn't seem to capture. The grounds and room were meticulous and clean. Manager Michael greeted us in the...

This is the Island of Molokai where the rural Hawaiian life, culture, and traditions are extremely important and should be respected as the people of the island are trying hard to maintain their heritage.

Hotel Molokai is a throwback to the motels you stayed at on family vacations in the 1960's. In some ways it's quaint, and I wanted to like it, but the downsides are just too many to overcome. The lack of air conditioning would be a deal breaker for some. Wasn't an issue for us, except that it meant that with...
