Location, gardens, friendliness of stsff
The location was convenient for making day trips by car.
WIFI was unavailable in room, had to go to pool or lobby to gain access. Close proximity to the Hilo airport made it a little noisy when helicopters/airplanes were landing or departing.
I liked the custermer service
The keys didn't work many times
Our room was basic, but nicely upgraded and comfortable. An on-site museum with exhibits about Hilo was a bonus, as were the lovely quilts hanging in the lobby and hallway. The pool area is lovely, though we did not swim. It was nice to stay in a Hawaiian-owned hotel.
Dates accommodations but clean and tidy
Very limited parking
Our room had a balcony heading the sea.. Beautiful scenery, also because of the banyan trees Grocery stores are in close driving distance Free parking! Nice location if you want to do jogging
The vending machines close at 8pm already... It's very close to the airport, so you hear the planes landing and starting ... Also the traffic is very loud during the whole day Walls are very thin, you can here your neighbors talking
The pool is a decent size if you actually want to swim! The rooms are clean. The staff is great. It is near the beach and a very close drive to Volcano Nat'l Park as well as other things to see and do.
Seaside is really close to the airport. First plane comes in at 6:30 AM, you can't miss it (noise). But get up, start your day, there is sunshine to be had and places to go! Can't say that it really bothered us at all.
Pool area where you could relax after a long day travelling
Needs updating. But a fair hotel overall
Close to places to walk in the morning, and several places to eat. Best prices we found on the island for meals in their attached restaurant. Good breakfast.
Wifi is free, but did not work during any of the three days we stayed their.
The receptive and friendly staff throughout the facility. The comfortable and easy reception area just inside the open doors:-)
Wish there had been available help with the luggage.
This is an old hotel, but very well maintained. The landscaping is gorgeous. Great pool. Very large koi pond. Close to beautiful parks. Lots of shopping and good places to eat. (Ken's pancake house) The front desk was wonderful. The cleaning staff was excellent and helpful. The beds were comfortable. It was quiet. Restaurant onsite was ok. Nice, clean laundry room. Close to the airport, Farmers Market and lots of waterfalls. (Akaka Falls, Rainbow Falls, and lots of others) This side of the island is tropical and beautiful. Be sure to go to Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden on the 4 mile scenic route, $15, but worth it. (Skip Botanical World, not worth it) And the Pana'ewa Rainforest Zoo was great, and It's free.
No beaches. Small rooms, but very clean and comfortable.
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 hotel Good staff Good value
Very limited parking - we ended up going to what turned out to be an excellent walk-up stand (Verna's Drive In) around the corner rather than risk losing our parking space on the street next to the hotel.
Close by the airport
You will be charged for everything: Baby crib: 10 USD/Night Microwave: 1.50 USD Breakfast: Not included, but they have a restaurant. Pool only open from 8am - 7pm, not allowing you to cool down after a day of sight seeing.
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! :-)
