The cheapest I can find at Kona. But you have to pay additional money on internet and parking. There is free public parking 2mins walk away. Nothing special

I loved the location of this hotel, you are right in the heart of Kailua. However the rooms are a little dated, the shower was kinda unpleasant and the air conditioner was really loud. I felt that the quality didn't match the price. Overall however it was a pretty good place to stay.

The Kona Seaside Hotel is located just a block off the main street, and it actually has a terrace overlooking the Bay and you can get a good sunset. The hotel is one of the least expensive in Kona and though the hotel is dated, it certainly does the job. The room was clean, and service of the room was... More

It has it own Hawaiianish style of furniture. I especially liked the carpeted balcony. Besides that, the rooms are very clean and functional, no frills. But who need luxurious rooms when all you want to do is go outside, because your on Hawaii? And it has two nice pools. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel connects to... More

As others have said, it's nothing fancy. Very basic, and rooms feel a little bit dated, but for the price and location it served its purpose. My only two complaints were parking and the pool. The parking situation was very bad. They charge $5/night to park, and their parking lot has very little space available, and fills up fairly early... More

Stayed here for three nights. This is not a plush place, but it is cheap, clean, and the staff is amazing. We were granted a 5 o'clock check out. We are long time travelers, including platinum members at Marriott and have never had a hotel so willing to work with us when we were taking a late flight. The furniture... More

I read some bad reviews here, but if you are simple and easy going, this is the hotel for you. Good local vibe and minutes away from Ali’i drive. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We will definitely go back again.

I stayed in the "tower" portion of the hotel. It was most convenient for the parking and the lobby. The hotel is older but well kept and clean. The staff was super helpful and kind to me. I recommend checking out the entire grounds as there is alot more there than you'd think at first. Tantas (sp) Restaurant on the... More

We chose to stay at the Kona Seaside because of decent reviews, good rates, proximity to the Kona airport, and the fact that - as a hotel - we could easily check in after our late arrival. We found the hotel very easily and got checked in - though parking was very tight despite the unexpected requirement to pay extra... More
