“GREAT VALUE”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

We stayed at the Ambassador from April 5th to 12th, 2014. We loved it there; large room cleaned and supplies replaced every day. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good security; the elevator wouldn't work without your room card. Well equipped business center included in the price. Very central; 10 minute walk to Waikiki Beach and several very nice eating places. The only thing that could have been better would have been FREE parking, but overall, a great value!! We would return.

We stayed from April 1-10. I was traveling with 5 adults and two children ( 4 and 6 months). We had two rooms both with kitchens. This hotel was perfect for us. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful with any questions. The only way to get wifi in your room is with a laptop. Each room is hardwired so all you have to do is plug in the Cat five wire. The only draw back for this hotel was the pool. Pool hours are from 10am to 7pm. I will stay at this hotel again.

If you are planing on renting a car I would contact Hawaiian Discount Rentals. We rented a minivan at a great price.

Great hotel that covers all the essentials. Perfect location for Waikiki beach and the main shopping areas.
Tip for anyone looking at visiting Pearl Harbor from this hotel. Forget the tour sales person in reception. Catch the 42 bus from Saratoga Avenue round the corner. Costs 2.50 instead of 80 dollars the tour guides charge to get there.

I stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed it very much. Loved the location. Near enough to all the action but far enough away to get out if the busy noisy shopping area.

Great sized room. Wonderful bathroom and kitchenette. Pool is a bit small but the beach is close enough, go swim with some turtles!!

Only problem was the noise at night. We were in the second floor and could hear every bus that arrived and the rubbish removal all through the night. I would request a room on the other side of the hotel next time, away from Namahana St.

This hotel is fine for people on a budget.The location is excellent. Close to everything, Also only a block away from the beach. Excellent choice of places to eat.From the expensive to the very cheap. all within walking distance.
If you are looking for a resanoble priced hotel then this is for you . the rooms are spacious and most have cooking facilities.The rooms need a make over but that is reflected in the price.As for the staff at reception,Nothing is a problem for them.They go out of there way to help you.and it is all done with a smile.Just a little tip,ask for a room above the 5th floor or you may be woken by noisy people in the car park.

Room Tip: The higher the better and away from the Lift, They tend to be a little noisy

When we got there they up graded us to kitchenette room. Very friendly, super clean and excellent location. We could walk every where that we wanted to go, take the trolley or rent a car. We had a marvelous stay at the Ambassador. Thinks ambassador see you in 2014.
