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...

Aloha Aloha CreoleMaiden, Please accept our deepest apologies for your recent experience at our hotel. The city has recently enacted stricter ordinances which has created an issue of parking availability on our lot. We understand that this is a major inconvenience to our guests and we are working diligently towards a solution. Our hotel also posts security guards 24 hours...

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.

We arrived in the late evening. The super nice lady at the front desk checked us in with no troubles and explained to us the information sheet about the hotel, which also has your free wifi code. Since the rating of this hotel is 2.5 on most sites, I was a little concerned, but figured on our budget, as long...

what a great family-owned hotel... very clean and all the amenities, also breakfast was included - but since they have no restaurant, breakfast was eaten at the Splashers Restaurant. It was delicious. The hotel was located right "downtown" too so within walking distance of almost everything. Kona Seaside was well worth the money we spent to stay there.

It wasnt the reason I booked the hotel, but I found these points out after checking in. Parking can be a bit painful if you arrive in the evening,but it's doable. The hotel is centrally located right at the bottom of Palani Dr and Ali'i Dr. You can walk anywhere downtown Kona with ease, and stumble back to your hotel...
