This is the only hotel within the town. Outside of town, you will pay close to $200/night with a 3-night minimum at several bed and breakfasts. We just wanted one night so we could head into Waipio Valley for the hike in and out.
This is essentially a backpacker hostel with cheap bunks under $20, or small tidy rooms with old fixtures. We got a nice room with a queen bed (it felt like a double) that has a nice ocean view for under $90. Next time, we'll probably get an economy room for a little less, and push the beds together.
This is old-tyme Hawaii. We were warned to bring our earplugs to drown out the rooster in the morning. Welcome to the country!
The continental breakfast was all right. Toast and jam, some tropical fruit and really good coffee. But definitely not much to get going on. Hit the Tex Drive In on the belt highway for a malasada and breakfast. For dinner, Il Mondo serves good pizzas with thin flaky crust.

This place is great! Stayed here twice in last couple of years and has not changed a bit. Affordable rooms, friendly staff, free breakfast, free wifi wireless internet and located on the main strip of town.
I am not sure if there are other hotels in the town, but its not necessary to keep looking. Ask if the hostel rooms are open, you can reserve 2 beds and get the whole room to yourselves for a great price.
To top off the visit, the hotel allowed us to leave our rental car in their parking lot while we went on a 3 day Waipio Valley hike (it usually costs $15/night but they let us park for free!!). Shhhhh don't tell too many people or else the parking lot will be full.

Stayed here at the recommendation of a friend who loved the funky vibe. Wasn't prepared for what I got. The basics - pleasant staff, clean room, comfortable bed, ocean view and breezes. Felt a bit pricey for the amenities and ambiance, but that's an observation, not a complaint. The true value of the experience became apparent at the communal table over the free continental breakfast. If you've been to the Restaurant at the end of Douglas Adams' Universe, you'll find yourself among friends here!!!

My family's house burned down so insurance put them up here for two weeks. Owner is very rude and insensitive to their needs especially at this point and time. She's trying to make money from insurance and the family by charging double and doing In a manipulative way. Do not go here, she's not professional and not empathetic at all.

I stayed here a while back with a large group of high school students. Myself and another adult were chaperoning our team for a tournament in Waimea. Unfortunately all hotels were booked in Waimea so we had to look elsewhere. Honoka'a was a reasonable distance away (about 20-30 min drive).
You know how in real estate listings, sometimes "cozy" and "quaint" is secretly code for "small" and "cramped?" When someone recommended Hotel Honoka'a Club to me as "rustic" and "quirky," I knew to set my standards low.
Keep in mind, there are two parts to the hotel: the hotel part and the hostel part. I can only comment on the hostel part since bunk prices were all we could afford ($25/person/night for dorm rooms; $35/person/night for single rooms). There are more proper hotel rooms available if you'd prefer.
The hostel bunk rooms will test your understanding of what standards you really possess. If I were traveling in a small group of adults, I think it would've been fine. Hostel lifestyle is low key. But since I had a large group of students with me, there were many concerns, with safety being of utmost importance.
We had 10 people. We were fortunate enough to even get the space, but on the phone, the owner assured me that there'd be no thru-traffic from outsiders because the whole floor would be to ourselves. Unfortunately, we had a creepy old man lurk through our floor in the middle of the night, asking to use our shower and bathrooms (that kids were occupying) even though he had his own shower upstairs.
The vibe is certainly "rustic." The basement floor was partially under construction with exposed beams and dust. The rooms are spacious enough for what you need. On our floor, there were ample restroom stalls and one shower. Expect roaches and bugs. Expect coqui whistling at night. Expect spotty phone reception.
These are all things that, with the right mindset, you could accept. Cheap is cheap. However, for my high schoolers, it was rougher than they expected.
I live on Oahu so I got all the info settled via phone and email easily. Late check in is super simple. Staff is friendly. They've got set office hours so if you're out exploring most of the day, you probably won't even catch them.
For safety concerns, I wouldn't return with a bunch of kids (don't wanna get parents angry). If it were just me and a few friends, it'd be fine. You just can't expect any bells and whistles (except from the frogs). At the end of the trip, we had a ton of laughs about the weird experience and we left with crazy stories to share.
