I flew in from the east coast, just relocated to the Big Island and was put up by my company at this hotel until my condo became available. I arrived at night and was greeted by the friendly staff, however - when the front desk staff learned that I was traveling alone (single female) there was a slight panic as...

Great value and amenities. Rooms in the "tower" are best, most have a partial ocean view. Hotel parking is $5 a day. Free wifi. No resort fees. Property has 2 swimming pools.Small fridge in every room. Walking distance to all the best shops, restaurants and activities Kona has to offer. Easy access to the trolley. I've stayed here many times....

Nice and cozy hotel. Pros: Good location close to the airport. A couple mins walk to the beach. Nice and friendly stuff. Nice ocean view balcony. Our flight leaves at 10pm and they extended our stay for a really good price. Cons: The AC noise may be bothersome.

For my Xmas break vacation I went to Kona, Hawaii. I stayed at the Kona Seaside Hotel. The main purpose for my trip was to relax and have fun and to scuba dive. Kona Seaside is very central in town, right by the ocean, 1 minute walking distance from the beach. The staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodating.  When...

This is a nice place to stay for a reasonable price. The front desk staff are very helpful, friendly, and we're accommodating. The location is centralized and makes it easy to get around by foot. In the past I have stayed at the other Seaside locations and they are just as nice. Never had any problems with any of my...

I have stayed here a couple of times before so I knew what to expect. Apart from having to pay quite a lot more than on previous occasions (US$ price that is and nothing to do with the current state of the British £) I was happy with my stay. The people on the desk were lovely and accepted my...

If you're looking for a resort type hotel where they'll cater to all your needs and treat you like royalty then this is not the place. But if you're like us where we are out and about vacationing during the day and only need a hotel to do the '3 S's' (shower,sleep,****), then this hotel will save you a lot...

Had a great time at Kona and this hotel made our trip seamless. The staff was accommodating and even on our last day day after snorkeling they allowed us to store our luggage and use their hospitality room to shower and get ready ready for the flight out!

Whilst it was not right on the water, it was perfectly located right around the corner. The staff were all friendly and quite helpful. The rooms were neat, tidy and easily accessed. Reasonably priced, easy to find and centrally located, I would definitely come back again.
