“You get what you pay for here.”
Reviewed July 14, 2011

I do not understand how this place got the rating of the #1 motel in Elk City. There is no way it can compare to the Clarion, Comfort Inn or Hampton Inn, The room was clean, mini fridge, microwave, high speed internet. Not fancy. Not by a long shot. The exterior is a mess. They are working on it but still have a long way to go. Front desk help were not professional at all but they were nice, not rude. The indoor pool looked clean but the area around it was messy. Make sure they do not put you in a room close to the club. My husband stayed here several years ago with his work and the place has greatly improved since then. Only way I would stay here again is if the nicer places were full has they were tonight.

Room Tip: Do not let them put you in a room at the back near the club.

Huge rooms, it was clean, flat screen tv. It is a big place and a bit empty in some parts, but the room was great. They even include breakfast. Great find. Trucker stop.

The discount hotel coupon book clued us in to this find. At this point, I’m not sure what to think about Oklahoma hotels. The Ambassador wasn’t scary like the Sallisaw Motel 6 was, just a little quirky – or more like whacky.

The Ambassador was a huge rectangular building, almost like a warehouse. There were two levels of rooms on the outside wall and the inside wall. The inside rooms opened up into a roofed courtyard – of sorts – filled with live plants which climbed up to the vaulted ceiling. There were patio chairs and tables on one side, an indoor pool towards the back end, and on the right side, where there should have been patio furniture – there were two piles of used mattresses, stacked about 6 feet high. The ice and other vending machines were located in this courtyard on the backside of the office.

The room was fine: no bed bugs, clean, with fast internet, mini-fridge and the works. It even came with two free, hot sit-down breakfasts in the restaurant next to the check-in desk. There were good breakfasts, too!

I wouldn't let the strangeness stop me from staying at the Ambassador again. It was a good stay.
