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

“First off, let me say what a fantastic book. I bought it last year to surprise my wife on our 23rd anniversary and we spent a year studying it from front to back…Your book was so right on target for everything from the moment our plane touched down until the time we left. My wife and I had so much fun, that we are returning in December and are taking the children with us and plan on getting your Maui book too for some island hopping. Again, you made our trip the most incredible experience that we could have ever hoped for.”
