Kona Seaside Hotel
Ranked #5 of 14 Hotels in Kailua-Kona
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This place is really good for the price.The location is great and you can just step out into the "downtown" area. I loved it that there are really nice places to eat, shop, rest, hang out all just outside the hotel. There is a very nice beach area just outside, it might be a part of the hotel across the street but it is open to public. The parking is paid and there are no water fountains in the common area but we were okay with that. The rooms were nice and clean and the staff was very nice.

The staff was very courteous and helpful! Very clean rooms, and good location comfortably just outside the main downtown strip so you still get a quiet sleep. The parking spaces are quite narrow, but otherwise, no complaints - parking was only $5 per night. I would definitely stay here again.

1) Parking is awful, but manageable. The spaces seem to be a foot narrower than every other place. The $5 parking fee is too low in my opinion. If I was guaranteed a normal spot, I'd pay $10 per night.

2) Perfect location. My favorite restaurant, the Kona Brewery, is kiddie corner to the hotel, and so are many other restaurants. It's nice to be able to walk around the area from this location.

3) The value can't be matched. Even though my room had ants, the price was great for the value I received. Just remember that you're paying for the cheapest hotel on the island, but you're getting a very reasonable deal.

Very Cheap, and great location. definitely book this hotel if you don't want to spend a lot on a hotel so you can spend that money for restaurants and lots more in kona. I stayed in the standard room on the second floor garden wing. Has cold A/C. Also good to book if you aren't spending a lot of time in the hotel room.

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.
