The front clerk charged me $107.00 with a smile? Which seemed extremely high for place that looked very old. The sheets had cigarette holes, the locks were very old, and the room had a distinct odor. Around 4 am in the morning people were knocking on my door asking for cocaine ? Which made me feel very uncomfortable. The website... More

Travelling across Canada, and had to stop in Calgary to visit friends. The ambassador's website looked fine. In reality, notsomuch. We were looking for pet-friendly and cheap. This was neither. The desk clerk was new to the job, and this was the first time we've ever felt uncomfortable giving our credit card info. He wrote it all down, despite having... More

Driving into Calgary without a sense of direction (first time visit), we decided to give the Ambassador a try. We negotiated for 3 nights. Reading the negative reviews, I am surprised; our experience was quite the opposite! The room was large and clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful and all of our appliances were new (TV with good... More

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 The tap in the bathroom which was extremely outdated was so leaky I thought someone had left it on!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 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!
