Hotel is older, but clean. The room did not smell musty like most older hotels do. Location was excellent, easy walking distance to Kona shops & restaurants. Breakfast options at Splashers were delish...must have the macadamia nut banana pancakes.
Desk & security personnel were helpful & knowledgable. Would stay again.

When we selected the Kona Seaside hotel for our one night in Kona (on the way across the Island to Volcano and the East Side) we had modest expectations for a clean room and not much more. What we found, however, was a well-located hotel with a remodeled room and great ocean view, not to mention uniformly pleasant and helpful staff. We didn't try the pool, but others were in it and appeared to be having fun. We would have no qualms in recommending the hotel to friends.

Room tip: Ask for a room in the main building.

I've stayed at the Seaside 4 times now & haven't had a bad experience. The staff are always very friendly & helpful, the rooms always clean & presentable. The small 3 hotel chain is owned by a Hawaiian family that obviously cares about presenting tourists with the true Aloha spirit, i like supporting the local guy. Would.t stay anywhere else in Kona

Room tip: The best view is the back side facing the ocean but the town view isn't so bad either

Great place, great location, good people. Still feels like Hawaii! Very clean, completely refurbished, older hotel. Close to everything you might need and want. Would stay there again. Owned and operated by a real Hawaiian family. Not surrounded by a concrete jungle or high end stores like Gucci, very refreshing and real!

Room tip: Ask for ocean view, fourth and fifth floor!

This hotel was better than we expected for the price. It's in a great location. Within walking distance of most everything. It has a very nice pool (but it's cold). Beautiful landscaping. The free breakfast was very nice in the restaurant out front, with a great view. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were on the small side, but very clean, and well kept up. They each have a good size balcony with a view. Has a refrigerator, coffee pot, hair dryer, iron and board, but No microwave in any of the rooms. They have a hospitality room with one microwave that is shared by everyone. They have onsite parking for $5 a night. I would recommend this hotel to any budget minded person
