The room was ready when we got there. It was nice and cozy place to stay. We did a day trip to the Big Island. It could have been better but the it was raining the whole time we were there. Would stay there again. It is a look back into the 60's.

We stayed here for 2 days on our bike tour from Volcano to Hilo. The staff was very kind to us. The rooms are standard, nothing fancy or unique. Perfectly decent stay. Nice swimming pool. Fairly close to downtown Hilo, roughly 3 km.

The hotel is literally a stones throw from the airport so travelling to and from there isn't an issue. It is also located next to a bay / lagoon area which is nice to walk around. There are a number of restaurants nearby if you chose not to eat at the hotel restaurant (separate review). We landed early and was...

This hotel was a real surprise ! The hotel is very conveniently located, clean with a very nice patio, splendid pond and a view to the ocean.

This is my fourth time staying here at Hilo Seaside and enjoyed each visit. Convenient location to the airport, free parking and wi-fi. Nice to have both ceiling fan and a window AC unit. Loved the room location especially looking towards the ice pond and ocean. The sound of the falling rain and coqui frogs didn't bother me a bit....

From the moment we walked in we felt relaxed. Family, locally owned and operated has a good effect on all. The room was comfortable, clean and neat. The restaurant was set out with a local touch and had great service, even the happy hour was enjoyable for meals and drinks. There is a really informative room turned into a museum...
