“Served its purpose for us”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2010

We were hesitant to stay here with our 3 children after reading the reviews, but we didn't have any real problems. We stayed in an apartment though, I don't know about the rooms. The room could have been cleaner than it was, the floors are kind of gross but this is a beach hotel, I don't know what people really expect. There was some partying going on around us which we didn't really like, but that's anywhere also. We didn't get our towels the one day until later in the day, like 5pm. We really liked how it had 2 seperate bedrooms and a kitchen area because we have a baby. The water pressure is not good and the drain didn't want to drain after you were in the shower for a while. We loved the front porch area though, that was big and nice. I would say stay here if you are not super picky and are on a budget. We keep our stuff at home much cleaner, but it was a few days so we could deal. If you have all the money in the world go stay somewhere else.

I just got back from a trip to The Ambassador Inn for a Beach 5 Soccer tournament with my daughter. We reserved with the Ambassador Inn. We stayed in a single room with 2 beds and bathroom.

There are no deadbolts or safety locks on doors. We came back Saturday night, and while walking up stairs, 3 to 4 young adults come rushing down, and when we got upstairs, someone had been smoking marijuana INSIDE our room. The manager was unwilling to help. He walked upstairs and acknowledged that someone was apparently in our room smoking. But he was unable to give us a credit or help us. He said he called manager but he was unavailable, on a saturday night at 10:00. There was nothing he could do.

They charge you for your complete stay up front, and then if problem say no manager available, nothing we can do, that should tell you something about their expectations.

Stay away.
