          THe wonderful hospitality of the check in personnel

          Noise level....you could hear patrons as they come and go....rooms too close to the entry way

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          The hotel staff was very helpful.

          The handicap access, the handicap stalls were always taken. Could you not assign stalls to room ?

        • Single
          8.2

          Quiet, comfortable, unpretentious. Handy for airport.

          Breakfast disappointing, but that is not unusual in usa

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Proximity to Airport and Gardens

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Location, centralized to downtown and airport.

          Concerns with electrical outlets, too confusing.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was good.

          It was noisy, the beds were only doubles, and the internet was very expensive.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          Convenience. It's close to the volcano national park, the airport, and the waterfalls in and around Hilo. We also enjoyed the included breakfast (you have to book on the Web). Older hotel, but functional.

          Layout was rather inconvenient (no elevator) and it felt like a maze.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          We ate dinner in the restaurant there and I have to say that my steak was really good not to mention my crab legs that came with it. We left feeling satisfied. The wait staff was really good too.

          The pool. It looked like the water wasn't filtering properly. Strong chlorine smell also. The pool towels could have been a little bigger.

        • Single
          6.2

          No elevators, baggage gets heavy carrying up flights of stairs, Infact I through my back out, thanks so much!!! I will never go back to this place.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable and the breakfasts that came with the room were great.

          Being close to the airport, I could hear one large aircraft taking off each morning around 6 am. The other person in my room did not hear it.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Location and Fifties style

          a little loud at nicht if you are streetside and have windows open. With aircon on no problem. Breakfast was good at the Coconut Grove.

        • Single
          7.4

          location, really close to airport

          not safe as glass windows didn't close tight.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The staff was courteous, the room was clean, the food was excellent. The Seaside is a great value. The only challenge was parking; there is not enough and you could end up a fair distance from the rooms. I will definitely stay there on future trips to Hilo.

          The bathroom light should not be visible from the bed.

        • Couple
          7.4

          The staff was firendly, that they were asy-going especially with the payment despite a problem with the credit card.

          Much noise, due to bad isolation with neighbour and outside: you can hear the people walking in front of your room (motel like). Restaurant for breakfast was disappointing (slow service, not enough space - waiting line, ...)
