We booked this privately owned condo through VRBO (Unit 128) before we discovered it was the Ambassador. After finding some of the negative reviews we knew it was not up to our usual standard, but the price and proximity to the beach were tempting and we had already paid our deposit and could not get it back. On arrival after...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was nice. It is not the fanciest place so if you are looking for something like that keep looking. Everything was clean and worked properly. Not the most up to date of everything, but again it all worked. We really enjoyed that this is a smaller place and you did...

I read some of the reviews before I went there. I wasn't sure if it was a good decision or not. The two most important things to me are cleanliness and a comfortable bed. It turned out well. It is an affordable place to stay and in a convenient location. If you are one of the picky people who expect...

Stayed here last year and had a pretty good experience. Stayed in the very same room this year and was very displeased! The shower had not been cleaned there were "hairs" everywhere. There was severe water damage to the walls towards the patio, pots had holes in the bottom, microwave & coffee pot didn't work. The floors were so dirty...

We stayed at the Ambassador in april 2013 At first look, the room looked ok - a little dirty here and there, but ok for the price. But at the time we wanted to go to bed, we discovered, that the sheets were dirty. It looked like someone else had been sleeping and doing other things I will not mention...

We have stayed here almost all month! It is not five star elegance but it is clean, comfortable-the staff is amazingly nice without any attitude at all-. Our room is really big. Only a few don't have spectacular beach views. The most amazing sunset I have ever seen. Nightly about 50.00 and buy two nights get one free- we stayed...

My family and I stayed here for 4 nights around the 4th of July. I was worried about the cleanliness of the rooms after reading the horrible reviews. I was very surprised when we arrived and the room was spotless. There were no bugs, no mold, and plenty of hot water. It's best to stay on the 2nd floor because...

We couldn't even sleep there, checked out after 2 hours. They let 18 year-old's rent so it's a non-stop party. The rooms are filthy and the manager is a creep!! I was amazed at the rudeness of the manager, he didn't care at all that people were miserable. This was a last minute trip so I didn't have time to...

When We first arrived my fiancé and I was like what the hell. It looks like the projects. We checked in and front office smelled like cigarettes major problem. We had a room at the bottom where you walk directly on da beach but it wasn't cleaned properly. The bed squeaked so bad that it was making my head hurt....
