Hotel Molokai features open-air, oceanfront bungalows located on exotic Kamiloloa Beach, adjacent to Hawaii's only barrier reef. This hotel is the ideal setting for an authentic Hawaiian island experience and the perfect location to explore Molokai, where the natural beauty is astounding.

Looking to "get off the grid?" Molokai holds fast to its natural roots, offering pristine beaches, the steepest cliffs in Hawaii, a fascinating history, and absolutely no high rises. Known as the birthplace of Hula, it has been deemed the Friendly Isle.

Styled after a Polynesian village from a time when outrigger canoes were the only transportation, Hotel Molokai is your secret hideaway from the frantic pace of modern life. These are quaint bungalows positioned east-to-west, allowing the breezy trade winds and soothing sound of the surf to gengently lull you to sleep each night. Rooms include down comforters, internet access, mini-refrigerators, coffeemakers, and cable television.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of paradise during the day. When the sun sets, cool down with nightly poolside entertainment while dining at the popular oceanfront restaurant.

Wonderful Experience

Was disappointed in that we only planned one night at this lovely spot - would have loved to stay another 1-2 days! The staff was friendly, welcoming and helpful. Felt like I had a "spa weekend" without the spa. The room was clean, spacious. Had a lovely lanai we could enjoy. The pool was espcially refreshing and the restaurant was also "up there". Highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Moloka'i - I certainly found it to be the "Friendly" Isle. I don't think I encountered anyone while walking around town, or on the hotel property, that didn't say a word of welcome to me. I will be back!!

Great place

We enjoyed our time at Hotel Molokai. The staff was kind and very accommodating. This is an older hotel, but very well kept. Most of the rooms are pretty basic, but there are lots of choices....small studio to large oceanfront. We stayed in the room over the restaurant and it has a sitting area separate from the bedroom with a very large deck. We will return for more than a week next year and are already looking forward to it.

It was wonderful!!!

We spent 3 nights at the Hotel Molokai during February, 2019. It was wonderful!!! Much like the Island of Molokai, the Hotel is very laid-back and comfortable. And our many interactions with the Hotel staff were pleasant ... and sometimes fascinating (especially Doreen). We are sincerely grateful for the "gift" Michael gave to help us celebrate our anniversary. It is obvious that Michael cares about his visitors, his staff, and his Hotel property. We highly recommend Hotel Molokai and we plan to spend time there during our next visit to Hawaii.

There simply aren't many options on Molokai for where to stay. There are a handful of condos and rentals around the island, but the largest hotel is this one. They offer kama'aina specials on the website, but many of the rooms are privately owned and are for rent through various online apps. The hotel is located on the south shore of the island, a few miles outside of Kaunakakai. It's a quick drive from the town, but not walkable. The hotel offers shuttle service from the airport for $25, or it's an easy drive with free parking for a rental car. The hotel is a number of bungalow type buildings, many single story with a few double. Each building has the name of a Hawaiian island. The grounds are kept amazingly green and well manicured. There are trash and recycling bins around the property. The lobby has a few tour desks and a gift shop. In the center courtyard is an ice machine and vending machine. Guest restrooms are in the main building along with Hiro's Ohana Grill (see my other review). They have a wonderful pool, beach access (no swimming here), and hammocks both on the beach and in the courtyards. This is the kind of hotel that if you're looking for a relaxing weekend, you may never want to leave! Rooms are older but cozy and comfortable. Each room has a lanai with a table, perfect for spending time outdoors. At night, there are a lot of flying insects, so be prepared for that. The property is small and easy to walk around. I would love to stay here again!

What a gem!

We arrived in Molokai for a two week stay after a week in Maui. We absolutely love Hotel Molokai! Room 115 was cozy with a great bed and bedding, comfortable temperature, rainfall shower head and hot shower, and daily dose of Hawaiian coffee. The garden view lanai was perfect for breakfast and visiting our friends. Shirley kept our place so clean. Room 216 is our room for the second week. It is a bit larger than 115 including a kitchenette. Since checking in this room we have enjoyed having our meals on the larger, protected lanai overlooking a garden where weddings may take place. The grounds are meticulous and beautifully landscaped. There is a sweet scent flower in the back of the lobby that drifts throughout that area and toward the ice machine and pool. We played cards at a table set up in this area. The pool is clean, the pool furniture is nice, and we have seen whales from the deck. Last Friday we enjoyed a hula show on the pool deck. At night we listen to live music from Hiro’s, the hotel restaurant, at the pool. The stars are so bright. Tiki torches at night create such ambience. We have enjoyed the hammocks listening to music on our phone. But the best part about Hotel Molokai is the staff! Kanani, at the front desk, (does she ever go home?) has been so sweet and accommodating! We feel we have made a new friend! The rest of the staff at the front desk, Carolyn, Sonja, and Ashley, are very friendly and helpful. They knew our names and room from the start. We met the general manager, Michael Drew, and were impressed he knew our names and room and that we were traveling with friends last week. We highly recommend Hotel Molokai and hope to winter here again. Thank you for our relaxing vacation!
