I just stayed for one night but had a very pleasant stay at the Kona Seaside Hotel! The room was clean and had a balcony with pool view. The staff was friendly and helpful! The hotel is located close to the beach and the shops.

We stayed in two different Kona hotels on our trip to the big island and this one was our favorite (over the Marriott across the street). Service, service, service. Friendly staff, local feel (it is locally built and still owned) comfortable room, we had a great view. It was obvious that these people cared for their place and the customers....

This hotel is centrally located within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Located right next to Marriott and the harbour. Room was clean with balcony however you can hear a lot of noises from next door and from the street. It has an outdoor swimming pool and the service from the staff were not bad. Will recommend this...

We have stayed here 2 times with our daughter who is now 3. Perfect location across the street to the kids beach. Walking distance to many restaurants. The rooms are dated but clean, and the only difference in rooms prices are the views. The staff has been friendly to us but they don't necessarily seem happy with their jobs... Pros:...

The hotel is very clean and well maintained but just a little dated. If I had any fault with the property it would be that there is a lot of street noise that cannot be blocked out and that they could stand an upgrade in their bathroom linens. Otherwise the rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. Also...

A very nice locally owned, Kama'aina, hotel that is located a few blocks up from the Kona harbor. The room was clean and quiet, just what we needed after our late afternoon flight from Oahu. While this facility is a bit older and not the "resort" that some might be looking for, the pool was clean, comfortable, and relatively uncrowded...

We needed just one night's stay before moving into our condo, and this place fit our needs perfectly. It's even right near Quinn's Almost By the Sea restaurant, which is one of our favorite places to eat. The room was clean and comfortable, although a bit worn and dated. We were far enough away from Ali'i Drive to miss most...

This is a family owned and operated hotel. It is several years old but well maintained. The room was clean and convenient. The bathroom was dated and the shower head hit abut chest level. We asked for extra towels and they were delivered within minutes. Easy check out also. The hotel is at the north end of Ali'i Drive and...

We wanted to stay in town after dinner with a client and an early flight out in the morning. The room is clean, the staff is friendly, and the property is right in the heart of Kailua, convenient to eateries and shopping. Not my first time to stay there and it won't be the last.

Yes, there are new and fancier hotels closer to the beach but this one had everything I needed and cost a lot less. My room was clean and comfortable and the hotel is within easy walking distance of the water front with its many restaurants and other attractions.
