Value priced, Island-style Hilo hotel with bay and garden views
The locally owned Hilo Seaside Hotel offers guests Island-style budget accommodations and a convenient location near downtown Hilo and the airport. The hotel is built around a swimming pool and landscaped with gardens and ponds. An on-site restaurant and free parking add extra value. Just across the street, the picturesque Hilo Bay is trimmed in green foliage and dotted with small catamarans.
Outdoor swimming pool

Hilo Seaside Hotel sits across the street from a sheltered bay and just off historic Banyan Drive in central Hilo. Liliuokalani Park and Gardens is within a few minutes' walk, and a 9-hole golf course is just across the street. The sleepy town of Hilo offers visitors a view of "real Hawaii" life and easy access to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Hilo Seaside Hotel offers simple Island-style guest accommodations, including a few rooms designated for smokers. Each features views of the hotel gardens or the bay, plus air conditioning, a ceiling fan, TV, mini-refrigerator and private balcony. In-room high-speed Internet access available (fees may apply). Request in advance for an in-room microwave or coffee-maker.
Stay cool at Hilo Seaside Hotel's large outdoor swimming pool, or build a local-style tan on the sundeck. Enjoy a quiet moment in Hilo Seaside Hotel's manicured Japanese rock garden or Hawaiian tropical garden.
The hotel offers dining 7 days a week at Coconut Grill, a steak and seafood restaurant. Hilo is packed with tasty eateries and cafés, including local favorite Ken's House of Pancakes.

It was Ironman weekend in Kona, so had to stay in Hilo. This was the cheapest I could find w/ decent ratings. Overall, the building was a bit old. The amenities are sparse and very limited open times, but we mainly used it to sleep, so it was very
comfortable, clean and well maintained. it's walking distance to a few restaurants which came in handy for a late night dinner or early breakfast.
The hotel is a mid-century property that has charm, but could use some updating. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly, location was great.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
There are not a lot of "touristy" shopping opportunities in Hilo (other than the Hawaii Candy Company and Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory). Hilo is more of a "local blue collar" type of town... not much nightlife that we could see, no big major resort hotels, just a nice little "local" town.
