We were here in first week of May and booked a ocean view room at second floor, the view was ok from the lanai but not worth the extra money for ocean front room. But, if this is the best view you can get from this hotel's room lanai otherwise you have to see small garden area of hotel or...

This place is a jewel. Immaculate housekeeping; simple, beautiful surroundings; friendly, helpful staff; overall in-door/outdoor feeling. I would return to Hilo just to stay here. Nearby scenic paths and food options (Millie's!) all a plus.

Our second visit to Hilo Seaside and have stayed at the Kona Seaside and Maui Seaside. This is the least of the Seasides but it is clean, safe, friendly & knowledgeable staff and a good attached restaurant. After a minor problem, Diana at the desk was quick to fix the problem and we were satisfied. We had no parking problems...

The Hilo Seaside was a well maintained "50's" style motel. It was very clean, with pretty gardens, a good little museum, and a friendly staff. The Seaside was in easy walking distance to a lake, beautiful park, and a good sandwich shop.

Beautifully kept older hotel. When we first arrived we were greeted at the front desk with a clean hand towel to freshen up and a delicious coconut candy. There was a bowl of bananas ,lychee and papayas on the counter that we could help ourselves to. We stayed in the wing with 3 levels. There are no elevators but the...

My room was quite comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The attached restaurant is also quite good and there are several other nearby options. The grounds are nicely landscaped and include a lovely pond filled with large fish. There is even a small onsite museum

Not glitzy but well maintained and clean room with friendly, helpful staff. Lots of antherium in the lobby, neat framed Hawaiian quilts with pride of place and history. Overlooks Hilo Bay and our room looked out over a charming Japanese garden and koi pond. Complimentary breakfast included at the adjacent restaurant.

We've stayed here twice while in Hilo. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's close enough to downtown to walk if you needed and right by the Liliuokalani gardens which is amazing! It's a simple place after a long day exploring but comfortable, cozy, & clean! Love staying here and look forward to it next year!

The seaside hotel may be simple, but it is clean and has lovely landscaping with an inner courtyard and outer koi pond. It also has a small museum dedicated to the history of the island. However, what really makes it stand out is the staff. The front desk is staffed by the most friendly and welcoming individuals and their security...

Arrived on a late friday afternoon and met exceptional front desk personalities and was welcomed and escorted to my room by the pool. Maids were gracious and supplied an extra towel we needed for the grand daughter. Great atmosphere, quiet and peaceful. I will definetly stay here again.
