Seaside Hotel Hilo Sep 21, 2011
We were arriving late from the Mauna Kea Summit late at night and just needed a place to crash on the way to National Volcanic Park the next day. Yes, was not expecting too much from 2 star rating especially after having viewed the hotel online. This area, Hilo just does not have nice accommodations. Lobby is decorated in "Hawaiian" style, the staff wanted to appear professional. Everything seems to be taken a few decades a back. No elevator to my third floor, had an attached AC unit in the bedroom which did not cool the room down. The room was very small, so was the bathroom. Everything was outdated, however, shower was very good, had nice pressure. TV was very small and of course, outdated as well. Beds were okay, was given 2 full(?) sized beds, good for one person. During the first few minutes of turning off the light, my hubby has gotten numerous flea bites, so ended up joining me in my small bed. Complained the next day, refunded money. BTW, there is internet in the lobby which is not free. I wouldn't recommend staying in this place at all.

The Hilo Seaside is owned by the same family who owns Maui and Kona Seaside Hotels. They are very similar in room size and features but they are laid out differently. The Hilo Seaside is much larger than Maui Seaside and has many gardens located throughout the hotel. It doesn't have any beach access so if that is what you are looking or then you should look elsewhere. There are two main problems with this hotel, in my opinion. One- the airport is adjacent to the rooms so you will hear airplanes taking off and landing but not at all hours of the night, mostly during the day. Two- there is an alternative church that loves to rock out on Wednesday and the weekends. If you are in the back, then you will be able to feel like you are right in the sermon. I advise you to request on room in the front to avoid the rockin gospel music, unless you don't mind. :)

The people were super friendly and the rooms were super clean.

DON'T EAT AT THE RESTAURANT - The Coconut Grill. It is expensive and not worth it. Go elsewhere.
