The rooms are fairly basic but clean, probably should be half the price that they are charging. However it does seem to be the only option so if you want to visit American Samoa there's probably no other hotel choice in a decent location which is no doubt what the owners are banking on. For the price I'd have thought they could do something to make the exterior less like a cell block.

The kettle didn't work, they replaced it with a coffee percolator so we ended up boiling water in the microwave.

Food in the attached restaurant, the Goat, was ok though and reasonably priced which was good. The beach was clean as was the pool

American Samoa is with a visit though and Sadie's is probably a good base to explore. I'd suggest hiring a car at the airport though as they seem to be hard to get in town.

We spent an enjoyable 5 nights at Sadie's by the Sea. The location is very good by Pago Pago standards, right on the water front with a small beach and safe swimming. Our room was comfortable, a good size and clean on the second storey with a small balcony (a little dingy as it had a solid wall in front). The staff was friendly and helpful. The Goat island Cafe attached to the hotel was great. Nice food at a reasonable price and a lovely location looking over the sea. On several nights there was live entertainment. There is a swimming pool. The first night we were there it was rather murky with scum over the top but the next day and subsequent days it was fine. There are fins and masks available for limited snorkeling off the beach.

There is not a lot to do in Pago Pago but I was attending a Conference. My husband was able to fill in the time by catching the local buses which passed by the hotel to various parts of the island. He even attended a political rally that he happened upon (it was just before the US elections) There was also free Wi Fi. Altogether we enjoyed our time at Sadie's by the Sea

Room Tip: Lower room numbers look over the pool area. Higher numbers out over the Bay.

NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH SADIE THOMPSONS INN...
Sadie's by the Seae, is the best location. Beach, Pool, Restaurant, Wi-Fi. Remember this is the South Pacific and NOT the Mailn Land. Rooms are adequate to comfortable. If you are visiting, don't expect to spend to much time in your room. The local economy dictates the price. Ask for the $120.00 rate. The Restaurant /Bar, has teriffic view of Bay Entrance. The fish is the best you will ever eat! Drinks are good. Good selection of Beer's.

The STAFF, is just wonderful!!!! Nices people you would want to meet. Thank You!! for a GREAT visit!

Room Tip: RM. 111, up have great Harbor mouth view.

Hotel is old, feels tired and needs to be refurbished urgently, the rooms have that terrible smell old US motel rooms have. But after leaving the windows open 24/24 the smell becomes bearable. The people are nice though, there is a good restaurant, a small pool, free wifi and the room does have everything you need. So all in all, not a bad place as such, it just needs some work, oh yes, and because of the current state of the hotel, it is overpriced, rooms are worth $ 80- $ 85 max, not the $ 139 or more they charge.

Pickings in AS are slim, but between this and Tradewinds, based on location, convenience, and the view, i'd pick Sadie's every time. Fridge, microwave and utensils in the room & every room has a patio facing the water (some partially obstructed by pool facilities).

Higher room numbers have better water views. There are two buildings. From @ 101/201 to maybe 120/220 (give or take) have partially obstructed views.
