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

“We are heading to Hawaii in a little bit over a month and we were given the “Maui Revealed” book by my mother in law. I have never really gone by guide books in the past, and I tend to look things up on the internet and plan our vacations based on that. This book has made all the difference! I love the humor and the sincere opinions about the different attractions and companies. I have (sort of) changed our itinerary for our trip based on your recommendations and I have just ordered your book on Kauai. I guess I just wanted to say that I absolutely loved the book (and all the dirty looks I get on the train when I laugh outloud reading a book on Hawaii in the middle of sucky winter in Chicago) so thank you for making our vacation planning so much easier!”
