The room was very clean, but facilities were very old. Parking was limited. We had to climb 3 flights of stairs. There were also small sets of stairs to climb in the lobby. There were no elevators and if anyone is handicap it would be a major problem. You get what you pay for. I would pay a little more and stay at a better place.

I stayed there February 24, 2006. There was not enough parking on the lot. I had to park across the street on a dirt area near a pond.

The hotel has a 1960s feel to it. The nicely-landscaped atrium near my room was retro and somewhat quaint. My room had a 1960s feel to it but was clean and acceptable.

Note that this property is near the end of a runway at the airport. At around 5:30 AM there was a tremendously loud jet blast that woke me up. I thought there would be more blasts as morning flights departed, but the planes must have used other runways because all was quiet for the rest of the morning.

This property had a very affordable price by Hawaiian standards. Overall, I say it is a good place to stay if you are a budget traveler.

I just returned from a vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. I wanted to see the Volcano National Park and decided to stay in Hilo for a few nights. I stayed at the Hilo Seaside Hotel, a Hawaiian family owned Hotel. The best part of this hotel is the friendliness of the hotel staff. The hotel was extremely clean and pleasant. I would stay here again...
