Good location, basic, pleasant staff

The hotel is across the street from a park and near the main Waikiki shopping areas. The room was spare but had a valuable partial kitchenette. The room was clean and the staff pleasant.

Wasnt too pleased with the Hotel

Old, outdated, room. It was for 2 people but they gave me a room with 3 VERY small twin beds... I couldn't sleep with my wife! Air conditioner only ran on high, so it was either humid and hot, or ice cold.... Small shower stall, no counter space to do makeup on. It was clean and the front counter personal was VERY helpful and nice. The room was just functionally terrible. Also there wasn't any complimentary breakfast...

First Timer

Hotel room had a full kitchen, small clean and served its purpose. Been in worst and been in better. If you are looking to save money on hotel to do other things on island go to Ambassador if you looking for beach front ocean overview this is not the place.

Birthday Trip

Our Stay at The Ambassador Waikiki hotel was good. The rooms were spacious and clean. The only things I will complain about are the following. * We booked a king size bed room but we were given a room with two beds. * The hotel has no travel desk or agent. We had to go across the street to another hotel for help. * Our room was on the second floor and it was extremely noisy all night long, even with the windows closed. Overall, we had a nice time and will probably stay here again, but will make sure to ask for a higher floor.

Clean, but you get what you pay for

The things that the hotel had going for it was the price and the cleanliness. The things that it did not have going for it was the balcony, no furniture. The pool area opened at 10:00 am and closed at 7:00 - we were interested in earlier AND later hours. We didn't find the hotel staff particularly friendly - a couple of them were OK but the rest were shocking at times and not solution oriented. I don't think the housekeeping staff had very good communication - we tipped and requested some more towels and a sheet over the blanket but it was inconsistent. Overall very basic but adequate.

The beaches past the Reef hotel were the best - long sandy and not that busy.
