Dis appointed

This is a late review from my tyrip last January 2015. I stayed at the hotel and i was so disappointed. The shower is so small and the water drain so slow so when you're showering you have your feet soaked in water due to bad drain. Also you can not even sake your slippers off coz the carpert is dirty.

Unexpectedly awefull rooms

We checked in to ambassor excepting a 3 star hotel but there we chipped paint, stained walls, crack bathroom tiles, ripped curtains, bikini lining sticker on the wall (who knows how long that been there and how long ago was this room cleaned), dust, and dirt. Don't being kids here since the pool closes at 7 pm and there are some serious issues with the room.

Oahu Trip

When I booked my reservation online. The picture of the room was not the one we expected. The room had holes on the wall, the staff put us in a bungalow type room that is similar to Motel 6, the bathroom is extremely small, the bathroom sink has no room to put your personal hygiene stuff and it's just a sink that is maybe 2 ft. wide. I asked the front desk to move us to another room and they said that they are fully booked. Unfortunately, we got stuck to this nasty place.

Great for family

The room has a small kitchen, you may cook for family members. Free wireless internet was useful and small but cozy swimmimg pool is prepared and good for kids. You're to pay the daily amenity fee per person, even though you have no plan to use amenities. Close to the Waikiki beach and restaurants. ABC mart is just around the corner. Pink trolley stop is also near and you may walk from the hotel.

Good for family trip

This hotel is old but cozy and nice to stay for family since the room has a small size kitchen, you may cook and enjoy. It is located near the Waikiki beach, you will love to walk. Small size swimming pool is also no problem with kids. They collect an amenity utilising fee per a person everyday (Not expensive).

Great last minute stay

I had two hours to plan my trip. Flights was convenient and the hotel for the price that I paid was perfect. Good service. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Perfect wifi. Having the kitchen was an added bonus. So for a no frills comfortable stay I recommend this hotel.
