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 am traveling to Hawaii (Oahu) for the first time in September with my wife and bought your ‘Oahu Revealed’ book last weekend at Borders. There were a number of guidebooks, but yours really jumped off the shelf at me with the aerial picture on the cover and then all the color photos and maps throughout. I have already read it cover to cover and am amazed that there actually is a guidebook that is so helpful and honest. Thanks for a job well done. I also love the Web site.”
