5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW via mobile

Super price, bleachie clean sheets, spacious rooms, central location, walk to ocean and shops. I also give this hotel a 5 star rating for hospitality and front desk service. All were kind and professional. Patty was especially helpful and knowledgeable about the island, and going out of her way to make you feel welcome. Traditional Hawaiian hospitality. We will return.

Hotel is close to the water. Entry into parking lot was bit awkward a sharp left turn and then up an incline. Very small parking lot. If you want to park in it, it will cost you $5. not a lot but a bit annoying. There is a free parking lot away from the hotel that you can utilize. I... More

We stayed at Kona Seaside for two nights. The hotel is located in central Kona. We're within walking distance to anything in town, and it's especially close to the pier where you could snorkel or rent a paddle and just have fun. It's not a luxury five star hotel room, but you will have everything you need and it's clean... More

This was the least expensive room we found during our stay in Hawai'i. It's somewhat dated appearance including the bathroom are a sign. When we checked in, we were surprised we'd have to pay an additional $5 a night for parking, or we could use the "overflow lot" (which is a lot that others use for parking to visit the... More

A quaint hotel, the place is really nice. The hotel was really clean and the rooms were adequate with a large double bed. Our room overlooked a small pool which seems to be open daily. All facilities were in line with the starage. The hotel is within reach of local conveniences such as Walmart and other small supermarkets and drug... More

So we came to see the lava on Hilo side and at the last minute we decided to go to Kona. I was able to call at the last minute and book a very reasonably priced room for us. It's not the newest or fanciest hotel. But everything is clean and well maintained. The best part was that the staff... More

My rating of this property based on value alone is 5+ stars. The hotel is very basic...this isn't a 5 star resort with gobs of amenities, but it will meet all your needs (unless you need those extras) and put you right in the middle of the action just off of Ali'i Street. The good: Location. It's right in the... More

The bed was great, I didn't want to get up! The bathroom was squeaky-clean. The lanai was nice. Air conditioning worked great. The staff were quick to answer questions and meet every need.
