Let’s face it, the name Tip Top Motel does not exactly instill confidence. The rooms are very basic (hard twin beds, linoleum floor) and have not changed in all the years we’ve visited. They could use some new furnishings. Be warned—if you arrive late at night, there may be no one there to check you in. The restaurant on site is a good bargain (see review in Island Dining). Parking may be hard at busy times because of the restaurant patrons. Owned by the same family since 1916, and not much has changed on our many visits. Rooms (approx. 120 sq. ft.) are $75. Credit card only. $50 refundable deposit. They charge you $50 if you smoke or leave a room really dirty. So follow the rules or things can get pricey. You may be better off at the Kaua’i Palms.

What Readers Have to Say

“I would like to thank you very much for the awesome book you have written on The Big Island. My husband and kids loved it. We just got back from our trip and your book is the best book I have ever seen on giving such specific and accurate information…Your maps and picks for every town were awesome. I did not leave this book out of my sight. When we drove to the volcano and waterfalls your maps and directions were so accurate. We took a lot of your suggestions from where to eat, beaches, shopping, etc. I was not disappointed with anything. Keep up the good work and I will definitely recommend it to all my friends traveling to Hawaii.”
