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 The tap in the bathroom which was extremely outdated was so leaky I thought someone had left it on!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 found spiders, ear wigs, visible rat traps, an abundance of flies, the bedding has an odor, as does the room, the cabinets... More

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!

We stayed there for only a few hours, in room 79, as we had to escape and sleep in the car due to the bedbugs! My boyfriend and I were lying in bed under the covers watching t.v. when I felt something crawl over my arm. I threw back the covers and lo and behold, a bed bug. We jumped... More
