This certainly isn't the Hilton, but it's good enough if you have low expectations and are just looking somewhere to stay on a budget. We were there in low season, so it only cost $39 plus tax. The condo we stayed in had two bedrooms separated by the kitchen area and the bathroom area. The kitchen was adequate for doing...

My husband and I rented a room that had just been painted. The fumes where strong and our eyes where watering badly. I went to the front desk and without hesitation they changed rooms for us. It was a nice room with balcony. The air conditioner in the back room didn't work real well but the other air conditioner was...

I didnt even stay their..because when I called to get some information about the hotel. The man who answered acted very annoyed when answering my questions. When I asked him why he was being rude, he proceeded to call me a C*** and hung up on me. I tried calling back and asking for his manager but he answered everytime....

I am not a neat freak but this room was absolutely disgusting. The mattress foundation had collapsed so the wood was sticking out the sides of the bed. The bed was worse than a sleeper sofa by far. The carpet was black and the bathroom vinyl must have been from the 70's and there was mold all over it. The...

My daughter, her friend, and I stayed 3 nights at Ambassador. If you are looking for a 5 star resort with all the amenities keep looking-but if you need a beachfront place at a good price don't be afraid to try the Ambassador. The place is old and the unit we stayed in probably hasn't been updated since the 80's-but...

We were alittle skeptical of this place due to some not so nice reviews and how cheap the rooms are. When we arrived we were allowed to check in about 4 hours early, which was great! We stayed in room 126, more like a hotel room with the two rooms separated by the bathroom and kitchen than a condo, but...

This hotel is bad in so many ways. It was still dirty from the previous guests and if you attempt to sit on the balcony to enjoy the view, the a/c unit blasts so much hot air, it drives you back inside the room. We checked out after one night, after waiting for front desk staff to arrive late. The...

We took five teenagers and myself and my husband. The room was old. No Roaches!! The kitchen and bathroom was clean. The ship stairs to the upstairs was a little tight and when you went upstairs you could not stand up if you were over 5'10. There were two queen beds upstairs. The bedroom down stairs did not have a...

After reading numerous horrible reviews, I decided I would email Ambassador to see if I could get some pictures of the condos, to put my fears of dirty, roach infested rooms, to rest. The email was extremely polite; no response. I called the following day and after being informed of the rates, I politely told the employee that I had...
