“Kona Seaside Hotel Kona”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

I believe it is the same family owned Maui Seaside hotel in Maui. Excellent rate with excellent service. Reasonable parking fee. Staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and courteous. In room air conditioner is a bit noisy. However, after cooling the room down, ceiling fan is more than adequate for sleep. Good location in Kona. As in Maui Seaside, micro wave oven available at hospitality room. I believe one can shower there even after checkout on the same day.

Wonderful staff. Really went above and beyond to make sure my recently disabled wife could make it around their property and the neighborhood.

Everything is older but sooooo well taken care of. The owners and staff show their pride in looking after their property.

Free breaky was great!

This was one of our last hotels during a 2 week island hopping vacation and I had my reservations prior to the stay, however I was pleasantly surprised. The room was well maintained and clean. Breakfast at the nearby restaurant was good, large servings and good quality. Hotel was located within a block of the ocean and near the heart of the main shopping/eating area.

I live in Hilo and come to Kona to dive, which necessitates I stay the night. Have stayed in other hotels in Kona, but like the Seaside because of the very friendly staff and the feeling of being at 'home'. Great location for downtown Kona. The rooms are basic, but very clean and comfortable. Great value for the money. Love the free internet!

My son and I stayed here for 10 days and for the price it was a great stay. The location is great, being very close to a nice snorkeling spot and many restaurants plus close to the highway. Our room had 2 beds and a nice balcony. The staff were very nice and helpful when we asked for places to visit. The $5 a day for parking kind of sucked but you only worry about that if you are diving. We would stay here again.

Hotel Close to Beach & Restaurants. Rooms were clean and friendly staff. No frills but very adequate for reasonable cost stay close to beach. Several excellent restaurants within minutes walking distance. 5 minute walk to marina where, whale watching, para sailing, and snorkleing boats depart.

We stayed here for just a single night. The hotel is average, but the location is worth it. The hotel is divided into two parts - the newer towers and the older rundown 2-floor building. We were put in the older part, and on the third floor, but there was no elevator there and I had to take my heavy bag all the way up by myself. Also, as it was raining, we got wet too. Maybe the people staying in the newer towers would have a better experience with the elevator. Also, parking is a bit difficult; there are lots of spots, but too many cars already parked. You pay $5 per night. Overall average experience. Not recommended, but if you are on a budget, definitely consider this.
