We stayed here so that we were close to the Rave for a concert. It was perfect for that - not a great neighborhood, but the hotel and parking feels secure, and it is less than one, well lit, block away from the venue. The bathrooms are on the small side, but it is a very old hotel and we...

What can you say about a hotel that charges $3 for a tiny toothpaste or similar last minute amenities that are complimentary even in a 2 star hotel? How welcome should a dining guest feel when told, "...If you don't like it, you can leave" after waiting for 45 minutes for waiter to show up to take food order? Is...

The room was very clean and bed was comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful (had problems with the key cards, went down twice then the lady working the front desk came back up with me and realized the batteries on the lock were dead. She promptly moved me to a different room) Wasn't able to check out the other...

I was a little worried upon driving up to the hotel, as the outside looked a bit rundown. Upon entering however, it was like stepping back in time. Absolutely beautiful lobby area!

This is a really nice hotel near Marquette University. That is the reason we choose to stay at the Ambassador on an ongoing basis. Our last stay was not up to par. The problem is the housekeeping staff. Our room just was not very clean. The pull out sofa bed still had the dirty linens left by the previous guests....
