Neighboring people kept slamming door through the night doors could use silencer so they don’t slam so hard Besides that Hotel was great very clean and had a great market right outside

The room was exceptional with a wrap around balcony ocean view from the bed

This place looks nothing like the website. The only good thing was that it was by the beach, walking distance.

It doesn’t look like the photos!! Absolutely terrible

View is awesome and location at Waikiki is very convenient.

I like the room is clean and odorless. One problem was every shower ,while you are showering the water in the stall did not drain out fast enough. Your feet stayed in the soapy , dirty water about 1 to 1 1/2 inch. After shower about 10 minutes the water receded . Suggestion: breakfast included , should be flexible with choices, (not bento box , same food ,every morning).

It was a good spot to start from in Waikiki next to all the shops and beaches

The pictures on the website are totally different rooms. The balconey didnt have any chairs or table like the pictures. We asked for a pan they told us they didnt have any extra one they could give us. The shower only hot water would come out. It was very hard to turn on the old stove. We had to play around for a few minutes before it would turn on.

I was pleased how the Hotel gives their guests a refillable water bottle, the room itself didn't offer a coffe makwe or a fan for the bedroom area, it got a little warm and the wall unit in the bedroom area was noisier than offered any cooling, Overall the Hotel Ambassador was a pleasant experience..

This is a bad place to stay. NOT WORTH IT. I will not recommend this place

The facility is old, but not terrible. All the staff were friendly and very helpful.

Horrible never coming back again especially their staff not friendly or helpful at all

We had to move to a different hotel. This, to me, is an old apt complex turned into a “hotel” I’m quoting hotel because I believe that hotel room doors and in the inside and motel have their doors on the outside. Anyways, there was only ONE elevator working and two out of service. It has carpet EVERYWHERE and it looks very old and dirty. Room needed a major makeover. Found ROACHES, but to my surprise when I called they did not sound surprised rather aware and their suggestion “would you like to move rooms or for us to go and ‘take care of it’” I have shared my experience with family who are going to the island to make sure not to go to this “hotel”.

The room that we stayed in is old with stains on the carpet, the sheets/pillows smell bad and the shower faucet only gives out hot water. And they will charge you for $25/day in parking and additional $25/day for ammenities (pool, gym) even if you dont plan of using them. So beware of these charges.

Awesome stay I really recommend it!!!!!!!! Staff is really friendly
