NileGuide Expert tip:
Try to book in advance, but don't hesitate to call last minute.
A family owned hotel, the Kona Seaside is hands down one of the most affordable hotels on the island. It is far from luxurious, but is clean, simple, offers basic amenities, and is right across the street from the ocean. The hotel is in the heart of Kailua-Kona, allowing visitors to walk around town to swim, eat, and shop.
The Kona Seaside features two outdoor swimming pools, laundry service, air conditioning, in-room refrigerators, a balcony for each room, non-smoking rooms, and a restaurant. The hotel offers the basic necessities, and although the pools are enjoyable enough to tan at for hours, the quaint hotel isn't for vacationers who want to live in the lap of luxury at their hotel and get pampered on-site during their stay.
Nearby attractions include Kahaluu Beach Park, Hulihee Palace, Kona Airport, Kealakekua Bay, Submarine Dives, Puuohonua O Honaunau, Coffee Farms, Captain Cook Monument, and many other shops and eateries.
With rooms starting at $88, the Kona Seaside in an affordable option for locals as well as visitors from off-island.
