My son and I stayed here for 10 days and for the price it was a great stay. The location is great, being very close to a nice snorkeling spot and many restaurants plus close to the highway. Our room had 2 beds and a nice balcony. The staff were very nice and helpful when we asked for places to...

Hotel Close to Beach & Restaurants. Rooms were clean and friendly staff. No frills but very adequate for reasonable cost stay close to beach. Several excellent restaurants within minutes walking distance. 5 minute walk to marina where, whale watching, para sailing, and snorkleing boats depart.

We stayed here for just a single night. The hotel is average, but the location is worth it. The hotel is divided into two parts - the newer towers and the older rundown 2-floor building. We were put in the older part, and on the third floor, but there was no elevator there and I had to take my heavy...

We were unable to get into our condo till Saturday, so we decided to find a place just for the night since our flight was reaching Kona at 9 pm. Thanks to TripAdvisor, we decided to stay here, and are very glad. No, it is NOT like a big Chain hotel with all their amenities, but for the price, including...

This hotel is central to all Kailua kona stores & activities. It is not new or super modern, but clean, friendly and reasonable. No whirlpool hot tub, but the pool is good size. The Big Island grill is only a block away. There is an excellent acupuncturist right next door.

We arrived at 10:00 pm and stayed at the Kona Seaside Hotel for one night before heading off to Volcano the next morning. The hotel is right in the town of Kona and close to a small sandy swimming beach. The staff person on duty was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and perfect for our overnight stay.

SO it could be a decent budget hotel but it's not. The location is ok one block too far away on a busy traffic intersection. The pool is minimal and shady (cold water). The worst is the front desk service and the fact that noting works,*(i.e. apple computer for the quests, ice maker etc.) The ladies at the front desk...
