Recent guest reviews

good and friendly staff nice place parking was a it tough. please check in early.

Despite the other reviews about bugs or unpleasant staff, our hotel stay was fine. It wasn't a very fancy hotel, but it met our needs quite nicely. We had a nice time in their swimming pool, and their beds were fairly comfortable. There were bikes for rent, but we did not have time to use that. However, there were some minor problems. The AC were slightly noisy, and it bothered us when we slept. Also, there were no microwaves, so we couldn't heat our food. Overall, it is a three star.

The staff was very good and accommodations just average . The hotel is reasonably priced and right adjacent to the main strip. Parking is tight. I would stay there again as it was a compatible bargain.

Right in the heart of the tourist zone , just across the street from a nice little beach. The hotel is a relaxing refuge. Even though it is an older property, rooms are up to date with excellent bathroom , toiletries, great mattress, wifi, charging ports , flat screen tv , mini fridge and coffee machine. Will stay here again.

Bad parking. $5/day to park. 70 spaces for 144 rooms.

The check in was fast and the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and prepared. The staff helped with things to do in the water front area which was nice.

Had a great time at the Kona Seaside. Clean room, cold a/c and a bed that felt like floating on a cloud. Staff was very friendly and competent. Couple good bar/restaurants right next door in Splasher's and Quinn's. Couldn't ask for more, and will be back.

The room was comfortable, with working A/C, clean bathroom and tub/shower, maid service excellent and they freely gave us a third set of towels (& cups) for the third person in the room. Excellent location from which to walk and enjoy downtown Kona. Front desk friendly and very helpful.

Great place!!! Will stay again! ROOM WAS CLEAN,, AND BEDS WERE COMFORTABLE

Relaxing with great weather and restaurants. I will recommend this property to all of my friends and relatives. Great parking spaces and excess to all hotel services.

I have stayed at the Seaside three times and spent anywhere from four to twelve nights. The hotel cleaneness has improved over time. It has an outdated appearance as far as rooms and common areas, but it is clean. I wish the air conditioning units were not as noisy. I don't use ac at night, but the noise from the adjacent rooms could bother someone who has a light sleep. Garbage truck collection around 5:15am is pretty loud. Traffic noise is not a problem. Overall I enjoyed my stays at this hotel and I will use it again.

We only stayed one night as we were on our way to visit friends.....comfortable room very close to restaurants and shopping. Very clean and quiet.

This hotel is in walking distance to Kona pier and a few great restaurants and bars. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beds aren't the most comfortable but it's a nice, quiet place to stay while visiting Kona.

Hotel was very pleasant and location was great. Definitely stay here clean and beds were super comfortable. Be back soon and will definitely stay here!!!!

The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The pool area was nice. It's an "older" hotel, but the property was clean. Pillows were comfortable, however, I would have loved to see less bugs. Shower head is strangely low, but if you need a one night stay, it's completely fine.

Very budget minded hotel. Close to Kona town. Great hotel staff. Staff very helpful with just about any thing you need. I stay here on every trip I make to the big island.

I had a nice room overlooking the ocean. The staff was helpful and friendly.

Nice clean hotel, very close to shops and beaches.

Very unpleasant hotel, staff is super ignorant and unfriendly, rooms are noisy (hotel located right on the crossroads) and smell with pool chemicals.

The hotel do not have enough parking available. The available parking is much lower than total room available in the hotel. The microwave is not accessible directly , It requires a person to get key from front desk to use microwave
