I love the Seaside hotel. I've stayed here for years when I pop over to Hilo. It's a quaint little place - it's a hotel, not a resort. They've been around a long time and have done a good job keeping things modern.The staff is always friendly, and go out of their way to make me feel appreciated. The rooms... More

Hilo Seaside Hotel has become my home away from home. I stay at the hotel once a week so I can accommodate a work schedule on the east side of the island. The staff is always warm and welcoming and my room is always clean. The hotel location is ideal for me considering I travel before and after my stay... More

I arrived to the hotel early, unfortunately and had to wait around 2 1/2 hours to get a room. They didn't charge me and I was glad for that. But it was a wait in a place we didn't know. First appearance, the hotel is nice. It has a koi pond to the right and a bigger pond that lead... More

Accommodations and staff were average. Nothing spectacular, but found staff to be helpful and courteous. Musician during dinner was very pleasant. Location is perfect for a leisurely walk along Banyan Drive. In about an hour you will encounter boats in the bay along with numerous ducks and other birds. You will also be able to stroll through a nicely landscaped... More

Cannot imagine a better place to stay! The hotel was just a few minutes from the airport. There is a lovely beach park on a lagoon right across the street. I enjoyed watching local families relaxing and playing in the water. The grounds of the hotel are landscaped with gardens of tree ferns, ginger, and ti plants. The small gardens... More

Beds were really comfortable. Louvres and flyscreens - not very secure. A/c loud but it worked. Good fridge, bathroom good size. Curtains didn't cover the window above the a/c, had to put a towel up for privacy and to stop the light. Breakfast very average and had to wait a long time. Good laundry facilities, nice gardens, swimming pool and... More

The location was perfect for everything in the area especially the airport. Friendly staff at front desk, always smiling. The room was clean, just a little inconsistent with refilling the coffee packs for the coffee maker provided but, not too big a deal. Ended up buying my own so I know I could have coffee before leaving my room to... More

The hotel is located very close to the airport in a not very nice industrial area. The staff at breakfast was unfriendly. They were for example not willing to serve some fruit instead of meat! We had the breakfast included in the booking rate and there were only three choices to chose from for breakfast. The food was poor. The... More

Our room was on the road side of the pool so was a bit noisy from traffic on the road outside. This quietened down about 10 pm so was not too big a problem. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lovely garden around the pool. The location was good, close to airport and town, and to the park for walking.

The price is right and it's close to airport. It's also within walking range of parks, fishing, Ken's Pancake House and Suisan's, as well as restaurant on premises and others nearby. A fair value. Older but clean.
