Let's start with check-in...they gave us room 218, then the guy ran to us at the elevator to give us room 216 because they said 218 wasn't clean yet. It was after 9pm...why isn't a room clean yet??? Our room wasn't what I expected at all. It smelled strongly like cigarettes despite it being a non-smoking room. The sheets had stains. The shower area had long hair everywhere. Also, while in the shower the slide glass door came completely off the track when I tried to close it! The door was stuck, so I tried to pull it closed, and the whole thing came off in my hands. My boyfriend had to run into the bathroom to help me move it because I was literally standing there naked and wet with a whole shower door in my hands!!! Being that we were only there two nights, we just allowed them to come fix it vice moving to another room. There was random graffiti everywhere...in the light on the ceiling (super weird), on the door in the bathroom, and carved into the top of the fridge. Housekeeping took our towels and didn't replace them, but when I asked for towels they just kept telling me that we needed to check out, like, but can I get a towel to wash and dry my behind first?! I would never ever stay here again. The only good thing I'll say about this place is they have very fast Wi-Fi.

The Ambassador Inn is not fancy. It's not a chain hotel. It doesn't have much for amenities. It isn't new or remodeled. BUT ... it was the best VALUE that we found anywhere near downtown LA. The rooms were comfortable, clean and maintained. The staff was very helpful and nice. Access the freeway is very easy. Parking is free. WiFi is free. I could not justify spending twice as much money at one of the chain hotels, when the Ambassador Inn filled our needs for so much less money.

Unfriendly staff, stingy breakfast, and insects in the room. The staff are trying their best to create as much noise as possible, as early as 6 AM -- as if there were no noise coming from traffic. They scream to each in chinese (the hotel is run by chinese), throw buckets on the floor and bang doors so that their relatives in Shanghai could hear it.

I selected this hotel for a last minute trip and my selection was based on pictures of the rooms and that there were no negative reviews (on this site). There were multiple reasons I am rating one star:
1) Although I booked a non-smoking room, it obviously had been smoked in before. When I asked staff for a new room, I was told there weren't any and they re-iterated the room was non-smoking.
2) There were very sketchy people in the neighboring rooms. They appeared to be staying there long-term, their items were just in the walk way (staff was aware of it), they were talking loudly from midnight to 4am cussing and smoking weed (again staff was aware and did nothing).Our bed was right next to the window adjacent to the parking lot and were awakened multiple times to people arguing and cussing.
3) The room did not have an iron, when I went to ask for one, I was told a $10 deposit was required.
4) When I asked for additional towels, I was told it was too late to ask for some. I kindly requested for more towels a second time and I got an answer of I'll see what I can do. I did end up getting them eventually.
5) The TV only had three channels that worked.
6) The wifi was painfully slow.
7) The pillows had a clean cover on them, however it was white and you could see the pillow underneath had gang graffiti written with a sharpie. I understand a prior guest wrote on it, however why would staff allow for the pillow to be placed back in the room.

I am not one to scare easily or in need of elaborate "ambiance" in a hotel, however I was there with my wife and child. All we needed was a clean, non-smoking room, with a sense of security, and amenities as promised. I feel guilty and bad for being the one that selected this hotel. It was difficult to cancel reservation and find another room as we checked in late night.

Rent a 2 queen beds for 3 people and room only had 2 towels. Same thing on the second night. Requested for additional towels and was told that they were try to look for it. I hope I don't have to keep requesting for towels for the third and fourth days. I'll never come back to this hotel again.

The room was clean while I was able to work comfortably with easy internet access. There is also a business center at lobby for faxes and prints. In the morning, there are various choices for breakfast.

WORST SERVICE EVER!!!This hotel cancelled our reservations the moment we arrived and claimed that they never received our confirmation from PriceLine even though we called them the night before to confirm our bookings. Stay away from this hotel, they're running a clown school and don't know how to do basic customer service or speak basic English. Basically, bad customer service and poor in handling the situation professionally. The front desk clerk also had poor etiquette skills and bad mannerism.

checked in new years eve 11pm. prepaid but it took 15 minutes for them to process and look for a room. Entered room 212 and saw cockroaches.... DISGUSTING. Husband killed several with his shoe. The top of the walls had what looked like dead insects.Tub was cracked, sink was yellow stained and had no drain.Thought I would throw up brushing my teeth.Towels were worse than brand new sandpaper! Slept with my eyes opened waiting for alarm to ring at 4am to go to the rose bowl parade. They should be ASHAMED to call this a hotel/inn.

Disgusting hotel! Ants & bugs in the room. Sheets were not changed in between guests. Stained/soiled so bad I had to put my t-shirts over the pillows. Mold in shower. Water turned my tooth brush bristles yellow. Mirror was dirty, tooth paste still in the sink from previous guest. Mini fridge was filthy. Pay more,DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! Only reason I did was because all other hotels were full due to Metallica being in town.
