Places to Stay
There are only a couple of bona fide hotels on Molokai these days: the Hotel Molokai and the Sheraton facilities.
Hotel Molokai firstname.lastname@example.org
The hotel is located at Kamiloloa Beach just outside the main town of Kaunakakai. Rooms range from $85 to $140. It has a pool, dining room, and bar.
Sheraton Molokai Lodge and Beach Village www.sheraton-molokai.com
The Sheraton Molokai Lodge is a small 22-room hotel, while the Beach Village consists of canvas bungalows. Two restaurants serve the lodge, and the village has an open-air dining pavilion. The resort has a spa and also provides a good variety of activities including fishing, horseback riding, and mountain biking. Rooms at the lodge start at $360. The Beach Village starts at $275.
In addition to these two, you can choose from a number of houses, apartments, and condos for rent.

Part of Molokai's western end bears the name Kaluako'i, which literally means “adze quarries.” The basalt found there was good for making the stone blades that were then hafted to wooden shafts for cutting and carving.
