My family stayed here while we waited for our condo to get ready for move in inspection in Waikoloa. We stayed here over a week and loved it because it was clean, great room service and the location to the beach and restaurants were amazing. Plus our room included free breakfast each morning looking over the ocean and we got...

It is in a very congested area. Feels like a downtown kind with a few homeless people around. That is not any major setback though. People at front desk was courteous and helpful. Our room invited us with a green lizard. We got a new room immediately. No hassle in switching rooms. Bed was ok-ok, you can feel the springs....

We needed to find a hotel for one night and selected the Kona Seaside Hotel - #1 the front desk people were exceptionally helpful, friendly and the place is clean - clean. Pool sparkles. This is within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. The room looks dated with a small window unit but is really kept clean clean. We...

I wasn't impressed with this hotel. When comparing the prices of nearby hotels and rentals, this is definitely a good deal. I booked the room because we were only there one night. That being said, more than one night would have been disastrous. The ground were beautiful, I must admit. The pool was clean also. The room felt like a...

We have now stayed at all three Seaside Hotels: Hilo, Maui and now Kona. This location is just great. Walkable to shops, restaurants, historic places and the beach. The hotel is a bit dated, but immaculately kept. Parking is not free, as advertised, but free parking is available at an adjacent public lot. The staff at the front desk are...

We only spend one night in this hotel. It is easy to find and well placed. Room are quite big for the price and clean. Beds are very good when you come from the volcano. You have everything in the room: fridge, coffee machine with real coffee for free, iron, hair-dryer... First restaurants are not far (around 5 min by...

Pros: $109 plus $5 for parking was a good deal compared to the other surrounding area hotels. Centrally located and less than two blocks to the beach. Very clean with balcony and pool. Cons: The A/C next door to our room made so much noise when it came on that it woke me up almost every time (about 4-5 times)....

I booked this hotel due to its close proximity to the airport as we flew in late at night for a conference and didn't have reservations at our resort until the following day. Also I didn't want to pay big bucks for place I wasn't going to be at very long. We checked in around 11pm and the parking lot...

This hotel is a good economical choice, it's centralized near the beach, ocean-side restaurants, Kona Brewery, etc. You can easily catch boats from the wharf. Staff was nice and helpful. Free parking and free WiFi. We did the no breakfast option as there are just too many good restaurants nearby and we tried a few, very yummy...

The staff is pleasant and efficient, the rooms are big, and clean, the beds are comfortable, and they have an extra electrical strip to plug in all the chargers! Internet access is free, and easy to use, nice grounds
