Stayed here in August. Paid cash and they charged my credit card as well. I have emailed, phoned and gone in person to get my money back and still haven't. The staff keep passing the blame around. I would never stay here again. They are thieves

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...

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...

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...

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 The tap in the bathroom which was extremely outdated was so leaky I thought someone had left it on!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