This hotel has lots of bad reviews. I have stayed here over the past 8 years for business and pleasure, when it was a Holiday Inn, Ramada Inn, and now the Ambassador. Most recent stay was a Friday and Saturday night. Our room was quite and clean. Bottom floor on the inside. It was plenty cool with the outside temp...

We booked the place for a 3 day conference, I had to leave after 1 night with rain pouring in the conference end hallway ceiling and all the buckets and trashcans and barrels couldn't keep the hall from getting soaked. The whole place reeked of mold and mildew, I couldn't breathe the next day, and for three days after. I...

I am so sorry for the inconveniences you have experienced at our hotel. Yes, we were short on pool towels, but received three new bundles yesterday. I was not aware that we were low on them. We could have gotten you a remote for the TV. Did you let anyone know? And yes, our cable is temporarily out as Cox...

Nice place but we could hear every word spoken by people walking by, every word! I also hit my ankle on the metal bar holding the box springs and 24 hours later, still swollen. Breakfast was good but want bacon.

I hope that does not deter you to visit us again, especially once the renovations are completed. We are anticipating them to start soon and you will not recognize the hotel once they are.

Had a great experience. Stayed on the first floor and had a nice clean room. The staff is accommodating and friendly. The continental breakfast is acceptable; would like to see hotter coffee. Sounds like it may be getting a makeover.

Our party of 5 rented 2 rooms on our return home from vacationing in Colorado on July 18. This hotel is struggling with air conditioning problems and housekeeping. The rooms were not cleaned and the AC could not get the rooms to a comfortable temperature. Anyone considering the Ambassador should confirm these issues are resolved before checking in.
