This hotel is run by a local family, I hope that statement is true as it is posted on the wall at the front desk. Pay for parking and put your parking permit on the window or else it will get towed. At night it was hard to find parking but we found a space next to the resort. It's... More

Poor check in experience combined with very bad beds of the worst quality. Poor quality towels that they protected like more than the 0.50 cents they paid for them. Honestly, the only good quality was location. Couldn't recommend it other than a crash pad of last resort. Very tiny bathroom.

I'm not the kind of person who needs a fancy hotel. I just like a place to be safe, clean, and friendly. And this was it. And bonus, there was a patio! Great place to just sit and have a few beers and talk to your travel buddy at the end of a day of adventure. It's very close to... More

We spent just one night way back to Honolulu I had encountered 3 different front desk staffs and they were all friendly and helpful , perfect "aloha" service :) However, the hotel room was just ok, the wall is quite thin, easily to hear ppl talk next door or from outside. The aircon in the room was pretty noisy. They... More

We only had one night here before a drive to Hilo the next day. The location is great, right in downtown Kona but our room was clean and quiet. The front desk gals were friendly and helpful and recommended the restaurant Splashers for dinner (which is in close proximity). The swimming pool looked nice but we didn’t have time to... More

This hotel was located close to areas I need to do business in. Quick access in the center of town. Room was very clean although a little dated. Close to restaurants, service station and shopping! Enjoyed my stay here.

Our trip this year was a last minute vacation after a very busy work schedule. Used my Hawaiian Miles to fly. Hotel had a good price and a good location to town. We did not rent a car, so location was important. Room was small, king bed was comfortable. We had a room on top floor (5th) view not great,... More

This hotel is owned by the locals, not a giant corporate, so that's a plus. Also the location is perfect as it's right by the ocean, main pier, shops, and restaurants. If we ever come back to Kona we will definitely be staying here again.

We stayed 2 nights at the Kona Seaside Hotel. Just long enough to do the night dive with manta rays with Big Island divers (separate review there-highly recommended). Overall we were very pleased. It is very well located right near the center of town. The rooms were clean and of decent size, although a bit dated. The room had a... More

Hotel in great location, close to all facilities including shops and the waterside. Many activities available from the immediate area. Kona has some great "happy hours" available, with many interesting activities to view while enjoying your beverages.
