In outward appearance and published room rates, this hotel doesn't even try to keep up with the times. It is a small, funky, old-fashioned hotel in the village of Captain Cook. Operated by a local family for three generations, the hotel is proud to offer rooms at reasonable prices. The low rates are good values at a Midwest motel; in Hawai'i they're unbelievable. Rooms are simple and spare, furnished either in Western or Japanese fashion. The lowest room rates apply to rooms with a shared bathroom. The grounds outside are serene and pretty, featuring a Japanese garden and a koi pond.
I was recommended this hotel by a couple of hippies. I should have known better.
Lousy service. They say they have wifi but it never works. When you ask them to call a cab, something any hotel would do, they show you the payphone.
In their restaurant the service is often just as terrible (you got t be lucky)
When you ask them to remove dirty washcloths other people kindly left in the bathroom they tell you to use another bathroom.
When you insist, they tell you they'll quick you out of the hotel! Really disgusting.
Waow! Only for people with low expectations!!
+ no AC, no ventilator, no fridge, worn furniture.
The hotel is in Captain Cook. That name rings a bell...I wonder why.....
this hotel is very basic, but for the price you cannot beat it. The food in their restaurant is also a good value. This is NOT a typical tourist hotel, but rather more for the locals and folks, who enjoy living like the locals.
Very traditional/rustic style...but the BEST pork chops I have ever eaten...well worth the drive. We also tried the fresh fish special and it's wonderfully smothered in butter...not for the diet conscience but delicious.
Lovely evening breezes with views of ocean and mac nut trees

We've stayed there a couple of times now. First as a couple, and 2nd as new parents with our 3.5 month old son. The hotel is simple..no elevator, only pay phone, no air conditioning...but what you get is a simple, straightforward Hawaiian experience. Dinner is served early, I think the kitchen closes at 7:30pm. My husband still craves the pork dish, and I enjoyed many fish dinners, ono, etc. This place is a great bargain, very simple, and peaceful. If you are looking for a clean and inexpensive place to lay your head, shower, and take in a nice view, this is place (or even to stop by for an excellent inexpensive dinner). If you are looking for pampering, room service, spas, and cocktails by the pool, this is NOT the place. The garden is lovely, all sorts of little plantings, orchids, crocus, succulents, etc. We'll be back soon, one of these days. It does cool off in the evening,since you are at a higher elevation but the room can be a little stuffy. Open windows and fan help. Behind the property, there are many Mac Nuts trees...I saw an owl fly over one evening.
We loved the simplicity of the Manago, the friendliness of the owners, and the fantastic view from our upstairs room. Our room was breezy and looked straight out to the ocean- quite magical. It's wonderfully located near many good snorkeling beaches. The hotel and dining room were extremely clean. However, it's not for everyone - it's very basic, no frills or luxuries. Of course the low price reflects the amenities, but still, not everyone would appreciate the Manago as we did.
