We only stayed for one night - priced right and close to the airport (7 miles). We were pleased with the comfortable and clean room, kind and courteous staff and the location is very convenient to downtown Kona and the waterfront. The pool area looked clean and inviting (though, we didn't have time to ).

Upon check-in, I was told that my room wasn’t ready because the check-in time has been moved to 4pm (which is NOT posted on the website!). The girl helping me (Lovey) apologized saying it should be ready soon. I was then informed that there was NO PARKING left for the night because it was all reserved by first come, first...

Nothing great, could use a face lift. Clean and good location. Parking is very limited and I wasn't there earlier enough to park in their lot. I was referred to a public parking lot over a half block away. When I went to my car in the morning, a traffic ticket for $70 was under my windshield. I did not...

This was our second stay at Kona Seaside, which both times we have found to be a very good value. Our most recent stay was for a week and in all respects we would rate it a success. It is not a "mega-fancy" venue overstuffed with Hawaiian kitsch, but that's not what we were looking for. The staff is friendly,...

We stayed at Kona Seaside Hotel for 10 days for the Ironman World Championship 2016. The location was incredibly AMAZING, so near the start/finish line, near the beach, right at the start of Ali'i Drive...was certainly a great location to be in if you're here for the world champs. We had our two young kids with us; 6 and 2...

Upon arrival we were given access to an occupied room as well as the wrong room type. We were told that no parking on the property was available, so we had to park in the public parking area. After doing so, we go a parking ticket for being in the public parking area between the hours of 2AM-6AM!?!?! The hotel...

Although in a reasonably convenient location, the room wasn't worth the price we paid for the 2 nights we stayed there. The reception staff weren't very friendly and the room needed an upgrade. The fridge wasn't turned on when we got there and there was a strange smell down the hallway. Finally, there was no parking available unless you advised...

I checked into this hotel yesterday. My cellphone is not working. I asked Lovey at the front desk if she had any information about the movie theater close by because I had arrived much earlier than check in. She immediately asked me what movie I wanted to see, looked it up on the computer, printed out a list of the...

Location is good as others have said. Near (walking distance) to a nice/touristy area of Kona. People were very nice and the lobby was open and pleasant. The room was average. Nothing wrong, it's not the Ritz and I didn't expect it to be. The pool was basic and unheated The problem with the room was the street noise. Nothing...

We love staying in old school type hotels in the midst of bars, shops n restaurants!! Can even walk to some great snorkeling! Had a small view around corner of balcony. Love the open air lobby. Kona is such a fun town.
