The room was spacious, clean, up to date. The hotel was clean and the receptionist was very pleasant. It's still considered one of the newer hotels in Tuscaloosa. The location is idea for less noise and traffic. I was pleasantly surprised. I'm glad I chose to take a chance and stay here. I will always stay there when I'm in... More

Alabama football weekends are a license to gouge for hotel owners, & the Ambassador Inn is no exception. This "low-end " hotel probably normally gets 40-50% of what they charge for game weekends but I will say that it was clean, had a friendly staff and was comfortable. They provide welcome snacks and water in the room, and make an... More

We were on our way to Myrtle Beach from Texas and were planning on stopping in Alabama for the night. Road construction changed our plans and we stopped sooner than we had planned for the night. We were not sure of any of the hotels we found in the coupon book but took a chance on this one. We were... More

We're told upon arrival that the lobby is closed for the night and we must enter through the side entrance. This room looks so cheap and dirty. Unbelievably bad. Not sure why this is called a suite... So depressing staying there and they charged a huge price, $184.00 a night because it was move-in weekend at University of Alabama. Wouldn't... More

I've been living in China for the past few years so my tolerance to the absurd is pretty high. Upon check in, I was greeted the desk clerk, whom was efficient and to the point - not much dialogue but kind. Booked a non-smoking room and ended up with one that stank like a bar, but it was too late... More

This has to be one of the nicest places I've been to for an overnight stay in a long time. The entire place is immaculate, the bathroom is huge, and the beds are super comfortable. Breakfast ends at 9 which was a bummer, but overall this place can't be beat.

First on arriving late in the evening, checking in was quick and they matched the pricing shown on TripAdvisor without having to book through them just showing it to them on smart phone. The gentleman at the counter was extremely nice and very helpful. The parking lot area is bit small if you have large truck with trailer, but is... More

I was really disappointed in this hotel. The room was okay but the amenities were so cheap they would have to be nothing to be any cheaper. The "bath" soap didn't make it through two showers. The towels were small, barely large enough to dry off after a bath. The in-room coffee (one decaf, one regular) was the worst I... More
