      Hotel was as expected after reading the other reviews on here and Trip Advisor. The hotel has dated decor but was clean. I stayed there for 2 main reasons; location to the dive shop I was going to be doing all my diving with (20 minute walk) and the price as I didn't want to spend a ton of money on lodging for this particular trip since it was only 3 nights and I was by myself. Location is convenient with several very good restaurants nearby and shopping all within walking distance. Staff was friendly and helpful in arranging an early morning cab ride to the airport for me. Decent value for the money and I would not hesitate to stay here again when in Kona.

      Dead cockroach on the floor next to the sliding door to the balcony. Never saw any live bugs of any kind so I tend to believe this might have been isolated. Room service forgot to add coffee during one of the cleanings which meant I could not have any coffee in the room prior to leaving...a nit I know but sometimes you just want to make coffee and sit before beginning the day. But that got me moving a bit sooner so I could go hunt down some coffee.

      Thank you for an opportunity to stay in your hotel! I like very much the people (very nice ladies in reception area). I was afraid that my room will be very noisy and asked for quiet room dacing away from traffic - my wish was met and it was O.K. (I used my ear plugs during the night just in case). Breakfast was good and in great location with nice waterfront view! Swimming pools nice and clean! Your price for hotel room I stayed in was reasonable. I would stay in your hotel again.Thank you! Sincerely yours, Andrew

      My bed was little too hard...

      I have stayed at the Seaside at least a half dozen times. It is clean, safe, great location, and inexpensive. For me, that is all I need. I am already planning my next visit.

      The Seaside is an old hotel, but well maintained. It can be noisy. If you are a light sleeper, you probably will not like it.

      The free breakfast was great.

      The room we had (5019) was the noisiest I've ever had. It took a while to fall asleep due to the traffic noise on Palani. Having a motor cycle dealer across the street was partly responsible.

      The location.I Did not use the pool but it was nice and clean.

      For the price paid internet should be included. In the bathroom no hairdryer. No safe in the room. Rooms are too noisy (windows are really "light", you hear all the traffic. The breakfast is not in the hotel. They give you a voucher you can spend in a nerby restaurant. Parking was additional 5 dollars (again for the price paid parking should be included).

      Really good value for money. The restaurant 5 course meal for $14.95 right on the beach was fantastic! Lovely, helpful staff on the front desk.

      Parking is limited, so we did not feel confident going out in the evening in case there were no parks left when we returned.

      swimming pool is ok

      Wifi was not free (and a bit slowish for the price)

      We stayed at this hotel because it was convenient for us. We came from Maui to join our ohana in the celebration of our cousin's 1st luau at the Hale Halawai Hall near the beach, which was" Awesome". Pretty much everything is in walking distance, the shopping, Ono-Ono restaurants (all types) reasonable prices for the ohana,parking so convenient to get in and out. The hotel is clean, walk ways, pools, lobby, hotel rooms and laundry room. Can't forget the staff, we always can tell when they are friendly, it starts with the front desk when you check in. The staff would greet us everyday while we were there, rather if it was day or night. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who will be visiting Kailua, Kona. Mahalo for making our weekend vacation a memorable one. Until we meet again aloha !!!!! Eddie & Van

      I liked the free breakfast. The restaurant was nice. The location of the hotel itself was excellent: walking distance from everything we wanted. The staff were very friendly and competent. The lobby was beautiful. The beds were comfortable. Everything clean.

      The location of the room. It was close to a busy intersection. We asked to change rooms, but the alternative we were offered was just a few doors down from there, still close to the intersection with traffic noise and pollution. The rest of the hotel seemed relatively empty including rooms on the quiet side of the hotel, and we wondered why we couldn't be over there. The plug in our bathroom sink was loose.

      It was fairly close to the airport which made it easy to get to. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. It was a big place with 2 pools and a few good choices for breakfast, one of which we enjoyed overlooking the ocean.

      I wished they would have offered a shuttle to and from the airport. Of the 3 hotels recommended none offered shuttles so I just happened to pick Seaside, but if they had a shuttle from the airport it would have made Seaside definately the one to choose over the competition.

      Nice location, in town center & near seaside. Nice breakfast restaurant. Hotel site good and well maintained. Good and clean rooms

      Many youths, which means that it can be noisy, particularly Friday- and Saturday evenings

      Location near shops and water front.

      It is a bit old and tired, with furnishings and fittings in need of an upgrade.

      Helpfulness of staff. Also, I like the fact that each room has a lanai.
