    A taste of old Hawaii
    The front desk staff were welcoming and accommodating with an early check in and a late check out. This is a charming older hotel in a fabulous central location, with many shops and restaurants near by. There are different historic photos on every level. The WiFi was reliable and there was a bar fridge in the room. Not much in the way of amenities and a bit short on drawer space. The pool area is nice but the pool is not open during the night. Every shower was a mystery... will I freeze or fry? Even in the middle of the day, the water temperature was wildly inconsistent. I was not happy to discover a staff member dropped off something in the room when the "Do not disturb" sign was up. Overall, I do recommend it.

    Kona Love !!
    3 nights at Kona Seaside were amazing. The only negative is that I did not have a view, just faced the street. The location is great. Just down the street is the bay with calm water. Nice restaurants within walking distance. The Kona Brewing restaurant is a 5-7 min walk. There is a Target within a short drive or long walk. There’s a Safeway open 24hours not too far. And there’s a local supermarket within walking distance with a Kona Coffee & Tea in the parking lot area. Kona is very central to the island. Kona Seaside is a good value, if you wanted to stay in an area with loads in walking distance.

    Good place
    Stayed 1 night, great location - there was a street market that night (Sunday), and for St Patrick's day there was a band playing at the restaurant next door. It has an outdoor pool, is not on the beach but very close. Was a bit dated but nice, and comfortable bed.

    1 star hotel
    Should be 1 star. Had to park in public parking which had a 2 am tow sign (Our vehicle didn't get towed.) Coffee made with the room water was not drinkable. There was filtered water in the lobby but none in the room. Not enough sugar/creamer in the room. Not good value for the rate. Also not a good rate on Located only 1/2 block from the waterfront.

    Clean hotel, great staff
    Staff was excellent and very friendly and accommodating. Room was small and little storage to put things away. Hotel is older but very clean. Pool area is small and only gets about 2 hrs of sunlight per day. Overall for the dollar value hotel was good, close proximity to everything.
