I found this hotel for super cheap on Hotwire.com. I was a little worried we might not be 100% comfortable here but as soon as we arrived we were greeted with very friendly and helpful front desk staff. The hotel is a bit dated and isn't exactly luxurious but our room was very comfortable and for the price we paid,...

This is a nice budget hotel, rooms are clean & decently sized. However, there is limited parking available & there are additional charges for parking. Our stay was nice & comfortable except that next doors there were some really noisy & loud people partying all through the night, which was a big disturbing factor.

Nice, quiet, comfortable and clean room. The king size bed was better than home! We slept through the night after a long flight and had a free breakfast at a restaurant on Alii Drive the next morning. We have stayed at this hotel four or five times in the last four years and have always been pleased.

The positives: -close to shops and restaurants -Rooms aren't fancy but clean -beds are comfortable -budget priced Negatives -limited parking in the hotel lot and you pay for parking. Free parking is a couple of blocks away -unfriendly staff at checkin and checkout -no views

Stayed here in October, found it had everything we needed, an older property, but close to most of the activity. Shops, restaurants and shopping centres all within distance. Convenient supermarket close by. Internet access very limited to foyer which was a bit of a problem. Restaurants serving breakfast, lunch and dinner close by. Spent time on the balcony but you...

We stayed here for one night after a 6 pm arrival at the airport. The hotel was easy to find in the dark and close to a lot of restaurants and tourist's shops. Because of our late arrival we could not park in the hotel parking lot ($5 up charge and it was full) so we parked for free about...

Although this hotel has a good location to the waterfront of Kona, Hawaii, it has some limitations you should take into consideration. It is an older hotel which needs renovations, especially to its air conditioning systems, which are the older wall units and which are very noisy. Although it offers free wireless internet-if you go down to the lobby, they...

Great location in Kona. Hotel is a bit dated but is very well maintained. The staff iOS friendly and very helpful. They all seem to enjoy working at the Seaside. Thanks for a great stay. Great service and price.

I read the reviews ahead of time. I needed a room for one night that was not expensive, just a clean, safe, good location to sleep. I was so glad that I picked this hotel. Everyone was so friendly and kind. From the person who initially reserved my room to the wonderful lady at the front desk, Pua Maile, we...

We stayed here one night after landing at the airport late in the afternoon. It's centerally located, very clean, easy to fine and easy to park and get into hotel. We were able to walk to a restaurant easily and catch some sleep before heading out the next morning for a destiation across the island. This was a fine value,...
