We had a wonderful time at the Hilo Seaside Hotel!! The hotel has been recently renovated and has perfectly balanced modern comfort with tropical style. We were lucky to stumble upon a cultural event they offered to learn how to make your own haku leis (hawaiian flower garlands worn on the head), which turned out to be a highlight of our time in Hilo!! Our teacher, Lehua, led us in learning how to weave beautiful and unique flowers into headbands using local ti leaves as binding - a truly unique Hawaiian experience! And they made our car smell like Paradise for the rest of our stay!! Just a wonderful place to have a vacation when in Hilo ????
Great location and a great price for a small older hotel.
We were warmly greeted by the staff and informed all about the hotel amenities when checking in.
The room is clean and has a fridge. They also provide little white noise devices and AC if you need them.
The hotel is in walking distance to Ken’s House of Pancakes and a nice little walking path near the beach and a park.
Lastly they over workshops throughout the week that our free. We did an oil class where we made a few items specialized just for us.
All and all, I would say this hotel is a great little gem and recommend it to my friends.
