We loved the restaurant on the property. The hotel is also easy to find.
The hotel has several hallways and levels, it was difficult finding our room and we had to go up and down stairs to get to it.
clean. good location. staff was adorable. so close to airport! suprised how much i really liked it and it is well cared for
dated. in need of renovation
This historic hotel is beautifully preserved and it shows that the staff is proud of its heritage and runs it with a lot of attention to detail. I enjoyed the friendly personell, the clean rooms and the beautiful gardens. It's close the the airport, right next to the sea and there are some stores and restaurants in walking distance. It's also a great based for going to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
The Seaside was pleasant enough and the staff were friendly but not "problem solvers". The general reaction to any request was "sorry, we can't do that". We had an included, but very limited, breakfast and I would definitely skip this. Better value is available across the road.
Not on or near a sandy beach and not close to town. You will be lost without a car. First time visitors will be saddened to discover that Hilo (and that whole side of the island) is very rainy - Hilo is one of the three wettest cities in the USA. Don't go out without an umbrella. Staff around the hotel walk around saying Aloha/Malala and expect you to be entranced by their authenticity as Hawaiians and they desire you to take your shoes off in the rooms. No wonder there is so much athletes foot disease around. We also stayed in another nearby hotel (the Nemesis, I think it was called). It was supposedly more deluxe but I would not say it was any better than the Seaside. They are all pretty much a ripoff. Go to Kona instead of Hilo - you will be better treated and the weather is much better.
Early check in, helpful staff Free parking Free wi-fi
Clogged bathtub Dune beetle and cockroach in room No balcony when booked balcony Squishy beds Walls thin as neighbors had loud music No breakfast
location,price was fair
the lady at the front desk who checked us in had an obvious cold with a real bad cough she even had to step away for a minute to cough and then came back to help us and coughed all over our ID,credit card,and room keys,she was not very friendly probably because she was sick,and a week later we were sick
great hotel! :-)
Friendly and helpful staff provided valuable insights on sightseeing and travel plan.
Finding a parking spot could be difficult.
breakfast was delicious, staff was very nice on a busy night. Impossible to beat for the price.
The beds need some updating. Everything else was great!
The laid vibe and the welcoming staff. The inner sanctuary aread are lovely. A great location for those flying in or out of Hilo airport.
Can be noisy at high traffic/guest movement periods.
The pool, lagoon, outside garden. Very attentive staff. Clean. Third time staying here in 2014 alone!
No complaints from us.
Restaurant very good. Staff very friendly. Room well maintained and up to date.
Rooms around pool can be dark.
The hotel was convenient to the airport and the staff very friendly. This allowed for a quick check-in upon our arrival to the Big Island. The lobby was very attractive and having lemon, lime and cucumber infused water available in the lobby was a nice touch.
The walls were a bit thin and we could hear other guests as they settled in. Their dining facilities were closed when we arrived but we were directed to two eateries that were only few hundred feet from the hotel.
the price and service match.
Hotel is old but very clean and tidy, and staff very helpful and respectful. Lovely setting and a great location. The restaurant was good and reasonably priced.
Friendly staff, great location on the ocean, near two great places to eat and centrally located near mall and old Hilo town.
Roll away bed for kids was extremely uncomfortable, recommend getting new mattresses.
close to the airport
rooms are very noisy ,the tiled floor has groves in between the tiles ,so when people tool on their bags you hear the noise loud and clear as the windows are nothing but glass louvers,one can also get startled by the knocking on any of the nearby doors/
Room was clean and it was quiet most nights.
Room was a bit cramped with all the furniture. Hotel felt a bit like a maze with all the seperate buildings
We stayed for a total of 2 nights and didn't have issues with parking either day. Once arriving at 8pm and once after 9pm. The room was normal size but 3 girls take up a lot of space.
Windows were the style like plantation shutters so you can hear everything outside. Also airplanes fly overhead but that didn't prevent us from sleeping well.
The Hilo Seaside Hotel is literally a little bit of history. One room is set aside as a museum and Hawaiian quilts decorate the walls. The staff is very helpful. The location is good. As well as the restaurant in the hotel try Ponds across the street and Ken's Pancake House a block up th road. The view from the front of the hotel across the fish pond is great. Unfortunately these rooms were closed for maintenance while we were there but we would choose one of these rooms if we return. Parking is good.
There are a lot of stairs and no elevators but staff will help with luggage. There are some first floor rooms with flat entrance from the parking lot but most rooms involve stairs. Our room was not large but it was adequate.
This is a family owned hotel so there are unique features such as Hawaiian gardens and a small museum. Clean and quiet.
Not really for children. Pool only open from 9-6 pm and often has maintenance during those hours. Parking split on different sides of hotel so a bit of a walk if you lose out on parking.
It's well maintained with nice gardens and great staff. Even a little museum!
Nothing was bad really, the airport was a concern but even that wasn't an issue.
