Driving into Calgary without a sense of direction (first time visit), we decided to give the Ambassador a try. We negotiated for 3 nights. Reading the negative reviews, I am surprised; our experience was quite the opposite! The room was large and clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful and all of our appliances were new (TV with good... More

Never again in a million years would I stay there I'd rather sleep in my car,rooms were unfit, not even a microwave or fridge, air conditioner sucked, lady and the front desk was the rudest person I have ever met in my life, definitely needs new management to say the least they obviously don't thrive on customer satisfaction very disappointed...

Booked one night stay and ending up leaving early early (4am). The tap in the bathroom which was extremely outdated was so leaky I thought someone had left it on! The ashtray was full of cigarette butts. Beds made but looked like it was by a 10 year old. Nosy and WAY overpriced!!! Never again

I needed a place to stay in Calgary at 3 in the morning and I was getting discouraged by all the bad reviews I had seen online - and then I phoned this one. It was clean, staff were friendly and it is located near a Tim Hortons!

For the money we paid, the quality was poor. A great location however if you need to get to the aiport (10 min drive). Front desk staff were helpful and friendly. Our two rooms needed repair, one tv wasn't working, coffee maker broken, one fridge missing, windows weren't secure and housekeepers a little on the noisey side in the morning.... More

We just found this place after driving 10 hours so we said screw it let's just come here. I have been to both motels and hotels and preferred hotels because every motel I went in was gross and dirty. The outside was a little off putting, but the rooms were alright, but clean. The beds were VERY comfortable, the best... More

I just spent the Canada Day Long Weekend in Calgary and stayed at the Ambassador. The motel definitely needs an upgrade with paint, swimming pool, and the entire facade (it looks like from the 60s). Otherwise, no big deal, the staff were very friendly and chatty, and provided tips about places to go during the long weekend, fireworks, parks, etc.... More

Stay here if you want... goods stolen out of your hotel room, people who know nothing about customer service, and house keepers who continually walk in on you while you're sleeping! Worst stay I've ever had.... DON"T STAY HERE!
