The air con was great and room services very helpful when necessary. The thing I loved about this hotel apart from the staff... More

Nice hotel, but I was surprised when I was charged a $20 per night resort fee. Not sure if this was the fault of Ambassador or the company I booked through not informing of the fee. For that price increase I probably would have stayed at different hotel closer to the beach and nicer.

I liked this motel because we didn't spend much time indoors and this provided clean convenient lodging. The staff was very friendly, in fact they acted like 5 star resort employees but the building and rooms are dated and a bit stark. A kitchenette was helpful until the maid threw a couple hundred dollars of newly purchased food out because... More

I have been a guest here and will return. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are roomy, clean and comfortable. I did not use the kitchenette but it was well supplied with dishes, utensils, etc. The tv was not working but was very quickly repaired. Good location and good value!

The AC in my room had a bucket to trap the water... :( Also, the minimum amount of characters is too much here. Please look into shortning this questionnaire, or develop more questions. Thank you very much!

Aloha Sifalatu, Our AC units do utilize a unique catchment system for the condensation it creates. However, our housekeeping and maintenance staff remove any collection and inspect these units daily. I trust you and your O'hana (family) enjoyed your stay and will come back soon. Mahalo, Adrian More

Everything was great. Very clean, staff friendly & helpful. View was nice, had city and ocean combined. Close walk to ocean. Close walk to anywhere in downtown you would like to go to. Free water, Room very clean!

Tammyp, Thank you for your review. We focus on numerous details in our work, but the biggest is on our ALOHA spirit and service. Anyone can clean a room, or perform a check-in; but our staff does all this and more with their own sincere ALOHA. I hope you return soon and wish you safe travels. Mahalo, Adrian More

This is NOT a resort that one would use for a "fabulous" vacation. My family and I have stayed at this hotel a few times, literally to only sleep. We visit friends/family and they live in a small condo, so we need room to sleep. In the past, we found this hotel to be good value for what we are... More
