A friend & I were booked into Sadies by the Sea on June 21 for a nights vist from Apia. I am not one to be too critical of hotels - I have travelled a lot and all I ask is for a clean room. Unfortunately, Sadies by the Sea could not provide that. The room was horrible - it had a dreadfull smell of mould as soon as we walked in. You could not possibly sleep in a room like that. The bedspread had big mouldy patches on it when we pulled it back and the bedside lamp was rusted and mouldy. I realise that humidity is extremely high in Pago year round but the owners must know this and counteract by running the air con daily as part of general maintenance to keep rooms fresh. I must say, the front office girl was very obliging and showed us an upstairs room, but it also was smelly and the balcony was black with mould. There has obviously been little maintenance here for a long time. The swimming pool was covered in white scum and the gardens were full of trash. How they could charge US$150 per night I have no idea. We had to re-locate to another hotel which was cheaper and 10 times better, albeit without the charm we thought Sadies would have had, given its position on the harbour. Reading some of the reviews was quite misleading. You would not want to go snorkelling here and have rubbish floating all around you as we witnessed. As I have said, I don't like to give bad reviews but I warn customers who think this could be a lovely holiday or business destination - there are other much better options available in American Samoa.
