We stayed here on our first and last nights in Kona. Kona is a busy, bustling tourist town, and the Seaside is a great location within the city: it was a quick walk to the grocery store, drug store, and lots of the bay's restaurants and shops. That said, it can be a little noisy since it's on a major... More

I enjoyed my stay here. It is a little far from a decent public beach but rental car travel on the big island is affordable. This hotel was solid, clean and very close to food, entertainment and the ocean. Try Kona Brewing for a meal! I loved it there, the food and beer was amazing!

Great location near the shops, gentle beaches, pier and water. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly! The lobby computers were new Apples and a great way to check email, etc. My room was very cool and comfortable in the small building lower floor, no need for the A/C. The bed was also very comfortable with unique sheet, blanket and... More

These are not high-end rooms, but if all you need are the basics, a room that is clean, in a great location, book one of the deluxe rooms in the tower. Because it is in the center of everything, it's a little noisy if you leave the sliding doors open at night.

Stayed in Kona seaside hotel for 2 nights during the big island west coast trip, the staff was very friendly, room is clean but decor is tiring and need renovation. There is no view to the beach/ocean from the room; The aircon is really old and loud, if you need quiet sleep, the room also has ceiling fan as alternative.... More

Nice spot to stay in Kona, reasonable price for a clean, spacious room. Front Desk staff and housekeeping staff were very friendly! I stayed on the 4th floor, main building. Outside noise from the main road can be a slight challenge, as is chatter from adjoining balconies if you have party people for neighbors- Convenient walk to so.e shops and... More

Ok for one night stay. The room was clean. I found the hallway smelly. Another strange thing was they had parking spots available on their lot but sent us to free parking lot close by which made no sense as we checked in close to midnight. We took this hotel as closest to airport.

This hotel is reasonably priced, clean and comfortable. Get a room with the garden view; then you can see the sunrise and sunset from the deck of your room! The pool is a bit too cold to swim for a long time, but cannot complain considering the price.

We checked into the Kona Seasde Hotel for a one night stay. When we asked for a quiet room, they placed us in one of the "garden" rooms. The room is a good size, but the bathroom is tiny, and in poor condition - the vanity is falling apart - and fixtures are really old. The biggest problem was the... More
