Was a bit apprehensive about the Hilo Seaside after reading a few reviews. However, having just stayed there for 2 nights, we would not hesitate to return.
It is very well located and quite reasonable in price. It has a decent on-site restaurant, free wifi in the lobby and friendly staff. It is family owned and operated which is charming. The koi pool was very nice and the location on Banyan Drive was beautiful, with amazing banyan trees lining the street.
True that this is not a deluxe / resort-type venue. Rooms are modest in size and amenities. Virtually impossible to avoid stairs, which makes large luggage a challenge.
All in all, we really enjoyed the Seaside despite its imperfections. It had uniqueness and character on its side, and the price was quite nice.More
