very comfortable and familiar

This B&B, the ornate classical house near the University of Hawaii, is now managed by the Japanese family, so it's very comfortable for us Japanese clients. The room is classical and large, although the bathroom is rather plain. The breakfast service is very good and order-made (but they have little milk). The location is a little far from the city-center, while there are so many connections of bus: it would be perfect to offer some bus tickets to the center.


Lovely B&B in a nice neighborhood in Honolulu

I lived in Honolulu as a child and hadn't been back in over 30 years, so I wanted to avoid the tourist highrises of Waikiki. My wife and I were not disappointed, Manoa Valley in was lovely. In comparison to hotel prices in the area, it is a great value, and to be able to hear the birds first thing in the morning and feel like you really are LIVING there instead of just visiting is a treat. The staff are friendly, helpful and not at all intrusive. The garden is wild and lush and I wouldn't want it any other way. I almost want to keep this place a secret, as we will be staying here again the next time we visit Honolulu.


Beautiful home and neighborhood

Manoa Valley is a very nice place to stay. Walking the neighborhood for restaurants and bus service was very comfortable. The home was beautiful.

We chose this Bed & Breakfast to celebrate our 32nd Anniversary because it looked romantic and unique. Our room was the "Cooke"and it was lovely. The shower was large and had plenty of hot water. The 4 poster bed had a chandelier light above it that was charming.The flowered sheets were soft and cozy.Our breakfast on the patio was generous.It was so delicious with coffee,two types of juice,eggs,Portuguese sausage,potatoes, pancakes,& assorted breads.Rice & sauteed vegetables were offered also. The staff were friendly and polite.We enjoyed our stay very much and will return again!


Musty, dusty, smelly….that describes Manoa Valley Inn.

1.0 on February 01, 2016

Our group reserved two rooms, both were smelly, musty and dusty. Our rooms were on the third floor, no elevator, and parts of the staircase did not have handrails. Bathroom facilities were primitive. Pillows smelled musty; bedding and towels had never seen hot water or bleach. Signage for the Inn was difficult to see..we located it by process of elimination. No staff could be found when we decided to check out after one night so we had to carry our own baggage down the two flights of stairs.Certainly did not meet the expectations set by the B&B listing. If we could have found staff when we left, we would have requested a refund. Don't waste your time or money! Disgusting!!!

Innkeeper Response
Aloha and welcome to future guests, I’m so sorry to hear of the experience reported below. After long flights occasionally guests arrive and find out they have not booked a Waikiki hotel with an elevator, staff at the front desk and a standardized hotel room. Our guests are greeted by a staff member or by one of the five family members living on the property. Our housekeepers keep the rooms very clean and on an occasion when something is not correct or extra towels or something is needed we are always there to help. It is a shame that these guests left without saying anything… We are here with the spirit of Aloha. Please do understand that we are a hundred plus year old historical Victorian. Our family and staff look forward to seeing you in Manoa!


A wonderful alternative to a hotel in Honolulu

4.0 on January 02, 2016

Manoa Valley Inn lies near University of Hawaii up the hill and across the H-1 highway from Honolulu. It is a beautiful and majestic palatial house with about 8 rooms on the second and third floor for guests. The first floor is occupied by the host family with their dogs and cats, including Peace, a small and charming dog who greets you and cages pets if you are interested. The furnishings are beautiful Victorian era and house is magnificent. There is a garden and a pool. Breakfast is served on a covered veranda overlooking the garden, with the skyline of Honolulu in the distance. We enjoyed watching the fireworks of Waikiki from our room on several evenings. On the second floor there is a sunroom overlooking the garden and Honolulu to the South. The owners are friendly and welcoming. Our stay was quiet and relaxing. The AC kept the room at a comfortable temperature. On return visit to Oahu, I would look forward to staying again at the Manoa Valley Inn.
