Great for our needs!

Clean; enthusiastic staff; has a travel planner/concierge on-site. Business center shakes, though, when washers above are spinning...thought I was in an earthquake at first, having never experienced one. Quite worth the money and would definitely stay there again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Tony Roma's dining is only slightly over a block away. Whaler's convenience store around the corner from the hotel has just a bit of everything including a variety of hand-held snack-meals like walking sushi! Breakfast and coffee are right out the lobby door.

Excellent Value!

My room at the Ambassador was modest but had kitchen facilities with dishes, cook ware and silverware. Also, there was an ironing board and iron in my room and WiFi worked well. I did not use the pool or exercise room. Business center a great plus! There is an amenity charge and onsite parking was additional, however it is secure and easily accessible. Best overall value I've found in the Waikiki area

Bugs & stiff beds

The beds were so stiff we needed massages after 3 nights and our last few nights consisted of finding ants in our bedding after their "monthly pest control" had come through

Ok - Overall

Located within Waikiki area, but it's quite far to walk. Still ok if you are in limited budget. Room is big, but very old building. They charge a fee of $20 per night for not much to provide or you will even have time to use it. Overall it's clean (at least from visible standard), but it is very aging building Staff is friendly

you get what you paid for

There are a few things I noticed about this hotel: -The elevator took forever so you need to be patient. -A chair was a bit sticky and there were stains. -The bed was too soft to sleep. But overall, if you are on a budget, I think it's ok to stay at this hotel as it's close from everything.
