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

“Thank you so much for this wonderful book. We have never been to Hawaii, and chose to go to Oahu in January. Our stay in your wonderful island was more than we could have expected. And I am convinced that it would not have been so, if we would have not bought your book. Now Hawaii will be an annual pilgrimage for our family.”
