We visited Molokai for 5 nights this January and stayed at the Blue Goose. As in all of Hawaii, the price of accommodations on Molokai is, let's say, quite pricy. The cost of a stay at the BG was significantly lower and not being picky we quickly made our reservations months before our arrival. On the date of our arrival we found the B&B, thanks to GPS, but found no one to greet us. There was a phone number on a weathered piece of paper taped to the front door which we called; the person who answered seemed surprised we were there. Apparently, there was no record of our reservation although we had called twice since making it to confirm the reservation. Fortunately, there was a room available and it was clean, comfortable (but simple) furnishings, and the shower had hot water; our basic needs were met. The room ventilation relied on the ever constant trade winds, which were not present for a couple days of our stay so room temperature was a little warm, but tolerable in the evenings when we returned. The breakfast was served upstairs and was standard fare of eggs, muffins, and french toast with coffee; there was always enough that you did not need to leave the table hungry. My advice: call a week or several days in advance to ensure your reservation will be honored.
We had a wonderful stay on Molokai. The relaxed and local flavor of culture was wonderful to experience. The activities and eateries we went to were always within a 20-30 minute drive of Maunaloa, which is not bad when you consider that heavy traffic on Molokai consists of another vehicle passing you on the same road every 10 minutes. (Did I say I liked Molokai?) There are also some great beaches on that end of the island and the view from the B&B is panoramic.
