This Victorian B & B was a great value and conveniently located near the university and bus lines. We had a rental car and getting to and from the airport was EASY. My daughter and I loved the unique decor of each room, the sweeping veranda and rustling of the tree leaves in the night breeze. John and Theresa (the... More

Though we reside in Oahu, we were searching for a secluded place to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary. We wanted something different yet special, romantic yet secluded from the city life surrounding us. This was a true find of all the many options available to us in Waikiki, North Shore & Makaha areas; we thought this was the best of... More

This B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood with handy access to the freeway & is walkable to the University. The rooms are large with antique furniture. Not every room has a TV if that is important. The pool, surrounded by tropical plants, was open to guests. A continental breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt & muffins is served. The owners... More

Robert/ Ann We stayed at Manoa Valley Inn during our visit to Hawaii in April and May. We really enjoyed staying at this beautiful, historic inn. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The very best part of the home is the lanai/porch which overlooks Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. The grounds are impecable, and the pool, after a long... More

This is the perfect choice if you have any business at the University. Leave your car here and walk to every point on the campus in minutes. Parking on campus or anywhere near campus is a headache. We had seven family members staying here, and we rented three rooms. Each room was unique with its own antique furniture and art.... More

My husband and I have stayed here a couple of times and we can't wait to go back to this beautiful B & B. We were attending my son's graduation from U. of H., Manoa.

Theresa and John helped us feel completely comfortable in their 100-year-old National Register home. Shops and restaurants are a 15 min. walk away.

This hotel used to be a lot better and could be better again when John and Teresa have gone. For now I would NOT recommend staying there. The only public area, the verandah is shared with the family, including pets and children. There seemed to be no awareness of the guests, that they might want to be without teenage kids... More

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.
