I stayed in Kona Seaside hotel for a week. Absolutely great place to stay. Very friendly hotel staff, had free upgrade to ocean view room. Very convenience to go everywhere. Walking distance to shop, nice restaurants, beach, local bus stop, Will definitely stay there again.

I enjoyed my stay here. It is a little far from a decent public beach but rental car travel on the big island is affordable. This hotel was solid, clean and very close to food, entertainment and the ocean. Try Kona Brewing for a meal!...More
