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.

Great Budget Getaway

For the price, this hotel was perfect. It is in a great location, walking distance to many attractions and downtown Honolulu, and the hotel staff is very friendly and willing to go out of their way to help.

Nice stop

Stayed one night after a vacation on the north shore. Not right on the beach but a good deal.

Unexpected additional costs

Be prepared to pay for extra amenities cost even you don't need to use the swimming pool nor the WiFi and the parking fee is another $20.00/day which we don't know if it's common in the Waikiki area or not. The room/bed look old.

Good Staycation

I was looking for a comfortable and affordable staycation for the weekend and the Ambassador was able to provide that. The location wasn't too far away from the shopping areas and beach and the room was as expected for the money I paid. I would definitely come back again.

Nice Vacation

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel was conveniently located near WiKiKi. There were a few homeless sleeping around the entire island, even in the park across the street from the hotel.

Great value in Waikiki

My wife and I stayed at the Ambassador for 3 days. We stayed in the cheap rooms (not in the tower). When you go to Hawaii do you sit in your room? No. Would it have been nice to have an ocean view? Yes, but the cost was WAY higher than the room we stayed in. It was a perfectly serviceable room, good AC, clean, comfortable beds. Save a few bucks and have dinner at the Thai restaurant on the corner.
