Highly recommended and would stay there again. Room was well appointed and clean. Janice, the proprietor, is meticulous about her B&B and pays attention to detail. Minuses: the tub/shower were in the room with the bed and not private (behind a door that could be closed). Only one chair at a small desk (not enough room for a second chair).... More

This inn is very rundown and lacking the basic amenities. There's construction/renovation going on and workmen walk by the bedroom and bathrooms windows early in the morning and there's no privacy with the flimsy window curtains. There's no one to greet guests when they arrive and there's no effort to help guests with any sevices. Location is not walkable to... More

This is a small bed and breakfast that is on a hill a short distance from Waikiki which provides a great night view of the skyline. Breakfast was very good, filling and complete to include fresh fruit which was set up in the lush garden. The staff was very friendly. Laid back and quiet but close to everything. Below it... More

I stayed here 20 years ago and remember it being a lovely B&B then. They don't seem to have done anything towards upkeep since then and the new owners are indifferent at best to issues of service.

Aloha! Sometimes the best reviews are the challenging ones where the expectations of the guest were different from the experience.

When I was in college, I lived in a student coop whose tone was set by aspiring hippies. If we had opened a B&B, it would have been this. That has up sides. The old house is cool.

Manoa Valley Inn was a sensory and visual delight. The mansion is filled with antiques that delight the mind. My room was large and comfortable: the furniture exquisite!

It's a very long flight from Florida to Honolulu and when you get here you just want to relax and take a shower. Had a conference at UH Manoa and this was the closest accommodation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Manoa Valley Inn is a Victorian Inn filled with European antiques with a bit of island flair. This Historic Country Inn is an Oahu landmark located in an exclusive area of Honolulu right by the University of Hawaii. The Manoa Valley Inn was built in 1912 and provides a luxurious and quiet experience away from the din of Waikiki for visitors and local residents alike. The Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The prestigious Country Inn is conveniently located within minutes of Waikiki and the downtown Honolulu business district, yet it is surrounded by the beauty, luxury, and serenity of Manoa Valley. Relax in the quiet of the peaceful and spacious veranda and soak up a bit of Hawaiian nostalgia from years gone by. Stay with us, it's a very special surprise. It is an intimate retreat that provides a unique alternative to resort living. The Manoa Valley Inn has six special, spacious rooms and a charming country cottage waiting for you. We are within walking distance to U.H. Manoa, bus lines, restaurants and theater. Relax in our tropical saltwater heated swimming pool with a soft flowing waterfall located in a secluded garden with many trees and flowers. Breakfast consists of island fresh fruits, yogurt, bread, muffins or bagels, cold cereal, coffee, tea & juice, as well as brown rice, oatmeal with plenty of assorted nuts and dried fruits, a variety of tofu dishes and stir fried vegetables .. eggs when served are from an organic farm run by a family member.
