A nice and quiet hotel, in a good location, close to the seaside, reachable in a couple of minutes.
We just stayed for one night, personnel is nice and well-mannered.

The hotel has a private park, where you can leave your car
Prive is good for the quality of the rooms and for the breakfast. Definitely the hotel has a good quality / price ratio. We can recommend it for tourists.

Friendly staff, Hawaiian-owned, good breakfasts, very clean rooms and right in the middle of town. Stay in the tower, 4th or 5th floor facing the water and it's all good. Free wireless in the lobby.

If you're looking for value stay here. If you're used to luxury, this won't work for you but if you don't care about that and you're looking for clean and decent, it's fine.
My stay was made even better by the front desk staff who were super nice.
Book online and get a better deal than in person.
Thank you Kona Seaside.
Back in rainy Vancouver, BC now.

Room Tip: Choose "the tower" 4th or 5th floor with a view of the water, not the side facing Pahala Road.

The Kona Seaside is a fabulous find in Kona should you wish to be near to just about everything. It is an easy walk to Kona Brewing Company, the beach-side shops and restaurants and both grocery and drug stores. The hotel is older and dated but the price is right and it is exceptionally clean. With two swimming pools, a neat garden space and hotel access to two great restaurants, this is a great place to stay for a visit to Kona. The rooms in the garden wing have recently been redone we were told, and the beds were new and extremely firm. Noise level is moderate as you are on a main intersection but the location and the service is great. If an upscale resort is what you are looking for, don't bother but if you want to have access to all Kona has to offer and not spend a fortune, call on Kona seaside.

Room Tip: The main part of the hotel has an elevator. Rooms in the garden wing require walking up stairs...

The service overall was good, but there were times when nobody was helping at the front desk and others when it took everyone at the front desk to help one person, leaving others waiting. I asked about bike rental and the young woman I asked didn't know, but others did know about activities in town, so it depends whom you ask when trying to find out what to do and where to go. Internet connection is awful, very slow, I had to use the lobby computers and they're limited to 15 minutes... you have to pay for internet in your room ($8.95), pay for parking ($5), but the pools were good. The bed was the worst, awful, bed springs creaking. But it was clean and friendly staff. I paid more to get a decent view, wasn't really worth $115 a night, but maybe $89. Oh, free breakfast at Tante's, the service varied everyday, one day I couldn't get the waitress to serve me so I left and the food (as with all the restaurants) varied as well, some days good, some bad. Go with this information and you'll be happy, wonderful island!

Room Tip: Get the garden view for quiet. The pool view may also be on the street side and louder.

My husband and I and three children stayed at the seaside. We enjoyed a kitchen with a large refrigerator a full sink and stove. This service in the hotel was terriffic. We asked for rollaways and received them immediately. The room was clean and we had ample towels. There was also Internet access available. The Kona Seaside is close to shopping centers and the airport. We enjoyed our stay
