35th annversary trip.

The people at Kona Seaside were extremely helpful, very courteous, and willing to help us find things to do, or where to send us to get the information we needed. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean.

Average

Hotel is in walking distance to bar/restaurants, shops/stores, Luau, pier, beach and has a small pool. Rooms are ok, but were not cleaned every day. Parking is tough to get and costs $5/day. The free breakfast is not in the hotel and is very limited.

Great Location

The Kona Seaside Hotel is centrally located to all the tourist activities and right across the road from the beach. It was reasonably priced, considering it IS Kona, and I felt comfortable and safe there. The staff was friendly and helpful, and even though it was right downtown Kona, it was quiet.

Cheap and cheerful

This hotel is older and basic but the fantastic location makes it a great value. The woman who checked after a late arrival was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and fairly simple. Only complaint is the small beds. Made a good base for a couple of days of exploring the island. The breakfast at the cafe next door was also a great deal.
