If one wants to be near the airport for a morning flight and does not have a lot of time to take advantage of amenities, of which there are few, Seaside is perfect. Clean, quiet, good mattresses. We woke up fresh
And ready for a days travel to California. Exactly the right hotel.
Hilo Seaside Hotel is 4 miles from downtown Hilo and 1.5 miles from the airport; Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is 26 miles away.More
The facilities at Island Goode are great and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The location has very good views of Hilo bay and is close to a number of tourist attractions such as the botanic gardens, plus Akaka and Rainbow falls.
The main problem is in initially finding the place. There are virtually no signs on highway 19 (just a small road number), however once you're there you can spot a few landmarks to allow you to return. We had to rely on sat nav to get us there first time.
The call of the frogs are noticeable at night because it is otherwise so quiet, but the air conditioning works well to mask the sound - so we weren't bothered by it at all.

Large clean room with access via a veranda to a tree shaded backyard with tables and a barbeque. Best breakfast with a variety of generous choices of eggs, meats , fruits or cereals, jams and cream cheese ( whatever is in the fridge as a fair game).
The cottage is located within 3 minute walk from a beach next to million dollar homes., and a short drive to other beaches, parks and waterfalls, museums and everything else the east coast of Hawaii has to offer.
No volcano gases (VOG) which bothered me on the Kona side! Just crystal fresh air and waters!
If we ever come back to hilo this is the best place to stay.

The place is filled with unique antique looking things. It provided everything we needed (fridge, kitchen and kitchen appliance) it was a very comfortable stay. The only negative thing I have to say was that the two days I stayed there, the weather was hotter than usual so sleeping at night was a little hard just because it was very warm. It helped with opening the windows and putting on two fans but It was pretty warm.

This place is run-down so be prepared for a hippy experience. That being said, that is what gives it the charm,.. it doesn't claim to be fancy, but does have deep history and we can't really complain... we slept well despite the loud frogs.
I'd say this place grew on me.

Sugar was once king in Hilo. Now, the town is known for its bay, shops, and farmers market that teems with exotic fruit. Swaying hips abound at Hilo’s Merrie Monarch Festival, a week-long hula contest held after Easter. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is nearby. There, Kilauea is the hottest attraction as one of the world’s most active volcanoes. At its helm is Pele, the Hawaiian volcano goddess.
