This is not a 3 starts hotel. I were reading all the mixed review before I booked this hotel but it was closed to where I need to go so I went ahead and booked it. Everyone said the staff here are good and friendly but not for me. I booked 3 rooms, all the sink and bathtubs were clogged... More

I'm sure someone will find that offensive, but I stand by the metaphor. The personality is alive and well, and the only thing that gives this hotel a second star is the top-notch staff. They were responsive, positive and consistently eager to problem-solve. When the server messed up my dinner order, for example, the manager and chef both came over... More

Well, the hotel is now an Ambassador Hotel. It appears to have been extensively renovated recently. Our room was large and comfortable. Everything worked satisfactorily. This property had a number of less than favorable reviews in the past few years. I say, give it another chance. We found it to be a good value. Skip the breakfast as it costs... More

The massage lady here is amazing!!!!! Linda lovato is absolutely fabulous!!! Definitely worth the stay! The kids and husband can swim while you get a great massage!!! Once they remodel it and get the "spa" going it will be that much better! Great place

We were told this property was undergoing a remodel, but the only thing I saw was that the restaurant was closed for a remodel, yet there was no work going on the whole 5 days I was there. The elevators were constantly breaking. The a/c worked fine in my room, but a lot of people from my group had issues... More

I have to admit, I was worried about staying here when we got this hotel from a blind bid on priceline. When we arrived, it was evident they were in the midst of a remodel, and I'm sure the hotel will be a lot nicer once that is over. The front desk staff was very friendly. We were on the... More

This hotel is really top notch! between a great pool and hot tub, great gym, and really cozy rooms, this hotel has everything you need. Also you can't get something this good for the price so definitely a worthwhile stay. Great location within Amarillo to do fun things.

The hotel was grand, everything from the service, to the pool, to the gorgeous rooms. I was really impressed with the amazing service. All the staff were super helpful and very kind. I really enjoyed my stay.

This beautiful hotel is undergoing a first class renovation and while already nice, will be an even more amazing property very soon. But more importantly, the staff here are the friendliest and most helpful I think I've ever encountered anywhere I've ever stayed. They definitely got our stay off to a great start of a wonderful experience. I highly recommend... More
