“Perfect family location”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

If you have an infant and you want to visit Kona this is the perfect location. Its just across the road of a family beach where the waters are very calm and warm because its closed up from the ocean and its a bit like a pool. Restaurants and supermarkets are also just around the corner so the location is perfect.

The room we got as a walk in customer was 120 USD per night without ocean view, with ocean view its 30 bucks more. Its a clean place and the people are very friendly and supportive, especially when you have an infant. The only reason why I do not rate it excellent is because the building is old, they said it was built 1971. But the rooms are still in good conditions. We recommend this place.

Room Tip: The room without ocean view have a nice view to the sunset, but that also means that the sun shines...

We were pleasantly surprised by the KONA SEASIDE hotel, where we stayed only 1 night at the end of our Hawaiian holiday, just before flying back to Honolulu and China. First it has a great location, fully central in Kailua Kona: all the fun restaurants & shops are within walking distance. There is a free parking for your car. Second, it is reasonably priced for the quality: around 100 USD / night. Rooms are spacious, clean, with a small balcony, and there is even a nice pool at the ground floor. Sleep quality was good, I enjoyed having a ceiling fan above the bed. There is also an individual air conditioner, if needed, and a mini-fridge. It was a faultless stay, offering good value for money: perfect for a last night in Kailua Kona.I would recommend this stay for any budget-minded travellers who want a clean, satisfactory hotel close to the fun night spots without breaking the purse.

Room Tip: Even the basic rooms are spacious and nice.

My daughter and I came to Kona for two nights to do some scuba diving. A bit of a spur of the moment trip so I was interested in keeping costs down a bit; very hard to do in Hawaii. At $85 a night and a short walk to shops and restaurants on Alii st this place fit the bill. Not a lot of frills and a bit dated but clean and comfortable. Window AC was a bit noisy but effectively kept the room at 69 degrees. Staff was friendly and helpful. Even though we didn't use it, the pool area was nice. Rooms have nice balconies with partial ocean views. They charge $5 a day for parking but the lady at the front desk will direct you to a free parking lot that is about a 2 minute walk away.

This place is great! We had initially booked a private suite off airbnb, what a nightmare it was! Filthy, stunk and totally disgusting. Currently fighting to get my money refunded. Had to head to mcdonalds to access free wifi, found this place online, very reasonably priced. Came over, had a look; rooms are clean, don't smell and have partial ocean view looking out to the kona pier. We instantly took it. Staff are really great, service is fantastic. If you're looking for a decent hotel, not over the top price wise, I recommend this place. It's a pathway walk to the seaside where all the fun is. And the recommended restaurant splashes next door is terrific!

Room Tip: Ask for ocean side

Check in was very easy, the front desk staff were super friendly, and we were pleasantly surprised to find out the Seaside Hotels are the last Hawaiian-owned hotel in the islands. The location was perfect with lots of options for food in the morning and the evening. We would definitely stay here again.

Best hotel value in Kona. The location is perfect and the rates are the lowest I found in the area. Clean rooms and friendly, helpful staff make this the best place to stay. We got a basic room with two comfy beds and a bathroom. Comes with a small fridge and a space to hang some clothes. If you want more be prepared to pay more elsewhere. But if this suits your needs this place can't be beat.
