Why Stay Anywhere Else!”

Another great stay at the Kona Seaside Hotel! Fantastic staff, clean spacious room, super location, and a fair price. I need a place to stay overnight for a quick business trip and found myself at home again at the Seaside. These are locally owned properties and provide a great experience for visitors and locals alike. I would highly recommend this quaint hotel to anyone visiting Kona. It's right in the action on Alii Drive and was honestly the last place that I swam in the ocean. Yes, Hawaii people always working! No time to go to the beach. Great for solo traveler, couples or families. Staff is fantastic and the room is clean, quiet and good sized. Come stay with Aloha at the Seaside, on any island!

Great start to our Hawaii adventure”

We appreciated this family run hotel! Rare these days. We totally drove in the wrong way and a very nice security person helped us orient. Check in was easy- and we could vote for our favorite decorated Christmas tree :) . The room was clean and simple but bed very comfortable king. We had had a disaster travel day so this easy landing was awesome. In the morning, the complementary breakfast at splashers was delicious. Coffee great! Later when I asked a local for a restaurant recommendation- they said splashers! I would recommend the Kona Seaside for a great location. We are divers- so wanted a place to get a quick start the following day. We were a five minute drive to the big island dive shop and ten minutes to the boat. The hotel hung on to our bags to make our launch easy. Overall- great place!

Reasonable price, very clean and comfortable...”

We ended up staying at the Kona Seaside when the condo we booked turned out to be a horrible, dirty mess. After that frustration, we felt very lucky indeed that the Seaside had rooms available. The room was immaculately clean, the beds comfortable, bathroom adequately supplied, and a coffee maker and small fridge in the room. The pool was well maintained, and our unit had a nice lanai to enjoy the evening breezes. The motel is walking distance to several decent restaurants and about a short block to the ocean. I would definitely stay there again if passing through the Kona area.

close to Alii drive without being directly on it; easy walk to nice beach & cultural sites; inexpensive for location

We started ad ended our vacation at Kona Seaside and were very happy both times. Our kids liked the swimming pool, Splasher's Restaurant and easy access to the beach. We parents liked the accessibility to nice walking and travel routes. Staff was pleasant, friendly, helpful. The lobby is a nice place to hang out, complete with two computers, cold water and travel guides. While we will still spend the majority of our vacations at VRBO's, we like Kona Seaside as a place to start and end a great trip with ease and accessibility to shopping and other services.

i needed the room for only 1 night as i was leaving kona after a week-long vacation. room was clean, bed was comfortable, and i had a great balcony view of the pier, the ocean and the night sky. if needed, i could easily have stayed in this room for a longer duration. when i vacation in places like kona, all i need is a good bed and a shower. i'm not spending my time in the room... i'm out exploring! :-)

Feels like home away from home”

No extras to pay - Wifi, laundry room, push bike to use, computers in foyer to use, just ask and you will receive. Reception 24hrs. Lovely pool. Walk straight out through shops to the pier where boats leave from, 2 separate swimming beaches, $2 Trolley bus, all the shops and restaurants you need, ABC shop. Don't need a car. Family run hotel where staff treat you feel like family. So so comfortable. If we go back to Kona, we will only stay at this hotel.

Convenient place to stay”

Stayed here for just one night before an early flight and it was a pleasant stay. The hotel is conveniently located in Kona Town and is also quite near to the airport. No complaints at all - room was comfortable and it had all of the usual amenities. Parking in the hotel lot was easy in the evening, but the lot was full by night. (Parking charge of $10/day.) Great option!

Loved the "Old Hawaii" vibe at Hilo Seaside!”

Homey place with great happy hour, excellent value

not a swanky place at all - a little funky, even - and i'm sure it's been re-plastered and re-painted 1000 times. and too far from old town hilo to walk there. but the place is clean and cared for, friendly, helpful, very nicely landscaped, and well located for pleasant strolls around reed's bay and kuhio bay. we slept well on comfy beds even though our garden wing room was a tad noisy. love the louvered windows. happy hour with herb (original and cover hawaiian music) was terrific - and in hi, who complains about $2-$3 drafts with $5 pupus? our room deal included breakfast, and the 3 choices were all good. we stayed just 2 nights but would have enjoyed 2 weeks.
