If you need a shower and place to rest your head than it's okay. Note that all beds in the entire property are twin size beds. No air-condition, no tv. Also the shades were broken so people could easily see in the room.

Had a fantastic stay here, we did have to push two twin beds together but you can't beat the location, cost, view & sunset! Friendly staff, when we booked online over a year ago we actually got a free Starbucks card for breakfast. You couldn't be the price for a beachfront location. Just down the street in walking distance is...

Stayed two (2) nights, interesting room... at first I wasn't impressed, no air condition, no room phone, no tv, microwave & ice machine only in the lobby, lobby hours 9a-7:30p...but then you get the awesome oceanfront view, the spectacular sunrises, the pool mostly to yourselves, free parking, clean room, kitchen utensils, wifi, grill to cook and grass area with picnic...

The room was basic with two twin beds on the second floor. It had a refrigerator and a ceiling fan (no air-conditioning, which wasn't necessary anyway). We had a lanai overlooking swimming pool with a side view of the ocean.The bathroom was clean, spacious, with a window, and was quite recently remodeled. From the outside the hotel looked run-down and...

We just left the resort today after staying for a week. Here is my opinion: - Whole hotel is outdated, falling apart. - Our front door had a huge gap in it(bug city). A couple on the first floor said their sliding door didn't lock so front desk didn't move them, they just gave them a stick to place in...

The room was clean, comfortable, and a perfect fit for us. We really liked it. The trade winds made an air conditioner unnecessary, we generally don't watch TV on vacation, and we had our cell phones, so not having those amenities was totally OK for us. We had our own balcony from which we could relax and watch the sunrise...

I gave this an average rating based on location (5) and actually room (2) We have stayed at this location for the past 10 years or so. A few years ago Castle Resorts bought the property, and this is the first time back since then. I will do the "cons" first, then what I enjoyed. The room is really getting...

Mokihana was a little difficult to find at first as we drove past the entrance 3 times before finding it. On arrival they had no record of our booking but managed to fit us in as Walk Ins & luckily had a spare crib for our daughter. The lodgings are very basic (there's no TV, air conditioning & just a...

As stated, you get what you pay for...which is literally nothing. No AC. Run down, bad. If they are out of box fans, you'll need to run up to Walmart and get one. You'd think there'd be a nice breeze from the ocean, but there isn't one and the room gets muggy and hot. Good luck getting a good night's...
