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 open windows at night for ventilation, there was no way to block light coming into the room. (You could draw the drape and kill the ventialtion on one side, but there wasn't even any drap over the front door, and no way to avoid the exterior light.
There's no kitchen on site due to the fire, which remains an ongoing problem.
The Hotel does have a nice water view, but its on a mud flat, with no beach, and no way to use the water behind the Hotel (might want to consider a little bit of sand for a beach front, and renting kayaks and paddle boards.)
Service was spotty. At times, some of the employees were nice,and seemed to geniuinely care about providing service. At other times, some employees, were testy, and seemed indifferent to our presence.
Hotel Molokai is pretty much your only hotel choice on Molokai. If you come, be prepared for a funky, old, hotel, with limitations, and be ready to drive to get in the water.
