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. Rooms (approx. 120 sq. ft.) are $75. You may be better off at the Kaua’i Palms for a few more bucks.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just wanted to write and thank you for all the work you’ve put into your guide books. The Maui book was our bible on our honeymoon two years ago (how do people know what to see on the Road to Hana without it???). We just got back from a week in Kauai and again, your book was what I used to plan our trip and couldn’t have been happier with how our trip turned out. I’m honestly not sure how I will plan future non-Hawaii vacations without one of your books.”
