Molokai has no large resorts or modern hotels. However, there are options for short-term stays—mainly condos and vacation homes.
The best resource for lodging info is the Molokai Visitors Association. Representatives are available by phone to answer questions at (800) 800-6367, or click here for the association’s Web page.
If you’d like to stay in the island’s main town, Kaunakakai, check out the Hotel Molokai. Modeled in the style of a Polynesian village, the property has 53 open-air rooms, five of which are oceanfront. The hotel’s Hula Shores restaurant is also apparently the only place to get draft beer on Molokai. Go figure.
For Hotel Molokai reservations or more information, click here or call (877) 553-5347.
There are two rental car agencies operating in Molokai: Alamo Rent-A-Car and Island Kine Auto Rental.
For Alamo Rent-A-Car reservations, click here or call (800) 462-5266. For Island Kine Auto Rental reservations, click here, or call toll free (877) 553-5242.
