Let’s face it, the name Tip Top Motel does not exactly instill confidence. The rooms are very basic (hard beds, linoleum floors) and have not changed in all the years we’ve visited. However, they did reopen the rooms directly above the restaurant. 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. 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. No refrigerators, phones or place to do your laundry. Rooms (approx. 120 sq. ft.) are $104–$130. Credit card only. They charge you $100 or more if you smoke, leave a room really dirty or lose your key. So follow the rules or things can get pricey. You may be better off at the Kauai Palms Hotel.

What Readers Have to Say

“We just returned to cold, snowy Minnesota after two wonderful weeks in Hawaii. Thanks to someone that had used your books before us, we were well equipped when we arrived with your Oahu and Kauai guide books. We didn’t do much that was not in your books and we were never disappointed by our experience. My wife and I have traveled to HI several times in the past and never had anywhere near the success we did this time… Many thanks for putting together such an unbiased, clear and entertaining set of books.”
