If you get room 20 just don't even check in. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. For the price we paid for two nights, sleeping outside would have been better. We were in between the staircase and someone's balcony and al we heard all night was people slamming doors, running around and obnoxious laughing. We couldn't... More

Just stayed at Ambassador Inn. By far the most disgusting hotel I've ever stayed in. Terrible check-in staff, barely spoke English. False advertising...No wifi on 3rd floor, no hair dryer. The bathroom had no sink! It was next to the bed in the other room. Bathroom was filthy, hallway smelled like beer, alcohol, & vomit! Was awoken at 3am. Hundreds... More

1. It's frat party central with drunk, disrespectful kids running around at all hours of the night. You can't get sleep. 2. The family we vacationed with were in Apt H and had a leak through the ceiling from the 3rd floor. The front desk was rude and told them to just put a towel over it. There's no manager... More

The only way I would stay here again is if we were placed in apartment k. It was perfect for our group and had its own back steps to quickly get in and out without seeing other guests. The apartment was clean. The only thing I would complain about would be the clogged drain in the bathroom, and the lack... More

We were not happy about this hotel selection. Dirty and smelled like a skunk was roaming the hall. Not what I had expected by the pictures it showed on the site. Ended up staying at The Tidelands instead.

After reading the previous reviews, I guess it was a blessing that we did not end up staying here; we arrived to check in at the Ambassador Inn on Saturday night and they had misbooked us for the next weekend instead! After sending us to their "sister" hotel, where they told us that both places had no vacancy, they apologized... More

We arrived on a Thursday and stayed through Sunday. When we arrived to check in, the front desk was closed and we had to walk over to the Tidelands property (a street back) to check in and get our keys. We were on the second floor with the balcony. The 2 bedroom apartment looked neat and clean. It all went... More

I would like to start off by saying I am a regular tourist in the ocean city area. I wanted to take a last minute trip with some close friends and this was the cheapest. Although the hotel room was affordable I would of rather donated a kidney to afford somewhere else. My shower curtain had dried blood on it.... More

Our family stayed here last summer. The rooms were supposedly newly remodeled, but were in terrible condition. The porch, rooms, and everything was absolutely filthy dirty. Our vacation was ruined staying under these horrid conditions.
