Ambassador

In town for a judo tournament. We were booked in a different hotel, but switched when we found out most of our group was here. So glad we did. The hotel is old, but clean. The staff is friendly, and the rates, reasonable.

You can park on Ala Wai Blvd for free but sometimes hard to find parking and you have to watch out for the street cleaning days so your car doesn't get towed.

Great bang for your buck!!!

Location, location, location. This hotel is in a great location near Waikiki beach and is a great deal. Hotel room was comfortable. The hotel has a pool and the staff was very nice and easy to talk to. I would definitely stay in this hotel again on my next trip to Hawaii.

awesome penthouse suites

Seeing the place in person was better than online we stayed at the penthouse suite it had three full bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The view was breath taking and beautiful. It had a full kitchen with pots and pans and even a rice cooker ready to go. Perfect for a large group or family with kids. Also just a few blocks from the beach strip mall and markets. The staff was also amazing and friendly fast service when needing towels etc. The pool was super clean didn't see on bug or leaf in it! The reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is cause the first night we got put into a smaller suite than we had booked and had to share 1.5 bathroom and had to ask for a roll out bed but they where so kind to send us gifts and a note saying they where sorry. Overall a must stay place definitely coming back soon!!!♥

Good location, Good view

It is a nice hotel but make sure you don't get a room with 3 small beds if you are a couple. They won't change it for you.

Just like a Motel.

We had the chance to stay at two different hotels in Honololu : - 3 days at the Alo Monoa Hotel and it is a real hotel with proper services & amenities. And the facilities are great. - 2 days at the Ambassador Hotel Waikiki and it feels like a cheap Motel : 2-1: The front desk is like a a gas station and whatever one may call the stale & empty space as Lobby is an exageration. And there is NO washroom in the Lobbt eiher. 2-2: The room is clean but it is just like a Motel ... nothing more. Next time , I will book the Alo Monoa Hotel and forget the Ambasador Hotel.
