"Cheap Spot that's Worth the Trouble"
It was a bit awkward to get in, as the staff was working the other hotel across the street - however as the staff was super helpful and friendly - it wasn't that big of a deal. I loved the level of security actually, waiting to get into the hotel means no one is getting in that doesn't belong.

"Not too bad"
Beds were VERY comfortable! Not very many channels on TV, and the guide showed the wrong shows on the wrong channels. The cleanliness was so-so...there was hair in the corners of the bathroom floor and nasty, smelly gunk under the trash bags in the cans. The neighborhood was straight up scary, but the reception lady chased away at least one of them that were bothering us for money. A lot of homeless people around, and we observed people smoking drugs in the area. Aside from that, the location was very near the Rave, which was our destination for the trip!

"A great value!"
My son and I stayed 2 nights, attending a class at Marquette. The Inn was very comfortable, and is convenient walking distance. We enjoyed drinks and dinner at the Ambassador Hotel across the street. The rates were surprisingly reasonable and the continental breakfast was totally adequate, but it would have been nice to have more breakfast tables and chairs available. I was surprised be asked to pay for parking as an addition to the room fee. It would have been more pleasant to have had the parking included in with the room charge initially. The room was very good. All in all, a very pleasant experience and I will probably be back.

"bad smell and uncomfortable room"
When I checked into the ambassador I was told I wasn't in the ambassador hotel that was shown on the website I was in the ambassador across the street. It was old and smelled bad. The rooms appeared to be at least 10 year old and dirty. Would not stay here again.

"Only stay here for the concerts next door."
Remember this is not the fancy ambassador hotel across the street. This is basically a red roof inn sharing the name. The hotel is in a rough area and the only reason to stay here would be for a concert at the Rave/eagles ballroom. If youre staying there and want cheap, this is the place, but dont venture anywhere on foot but the concert and hotel, unless you take a cab.

"Buyer Beware"
Please note that this is NOT the same place as the Ambassador Hotel. Although the hotels have the same contact information, website, and location, they are very different. The Inn is so dirty. Our room had stained carpets, linens, and dirty beds. Additionally, the front desk area was dismal and opened up into hotel staff offices. I felt unwelcome and unsafe. The parking is in an open lot in a very rough part of Milwaukee. The staff didn't have parking passes upon arrival, but told us we were ok to leave our car there without taking down our information. Everything about this hotel seemed off. The hallways were dark, the room numbers were not clearly labeled, and the carpet once again seemed dirty. We were given poor information about the shuttle service. Although the Inn guests can use the shuttle from the Ambassador Hotel, you must walk across a busy street to board it. We did not feel comfortable crossing this street at night. The front desk staff at the Inn seemed to have little to no information about the services at the Ambassador Hotel. We ended up switching rooms and staying at the HOTEL! They were very helpful and charged us a minimal upgrade fee. Make sure you are aware of what you are booking. We expected four stars and ended up in an absolute dump. Thank goodness the Ambassador Hotel staff allowed us to stay across the street, in a much more relaxing, clean environment.

The room was great for what our intentions were, spend the night after a baseball game. Easy fast drive to the game or they provided a shuttle. Bed was comfortable, room could have been clearer, dirty mirror, glass, dusty. The lobby was updated, breakfast area needs some attention as well as the hallways

Cool neighborhood. Clean. The feel of the hotel is off. Outdated. Dark. Cold.They take the credit card information manually, so it is not secure and takes forever to check-in. They indicated that this is there practice and that there system wasn't down.

We were looking for a hotel near the Brewers stadium.We had driven to Milwaukee from Chicago for a nite game.I should have been more careful in my selection but I assumed since we were just going to sleep an inexpensive place would have sufficed.We pulled up to the hotel, never went in and drove back to Chicago even though it was close to midnite.The fact that the "A" was missing from the sign atop the hotel was a clue to what the interior was going to be

"Comfort and bargain near campus"
The room was comfortable and clean, the air conditioning was working well. Continental breakfast was okay, but on Sunday they were out of orange juice. The location was great since we needed to go to the nearby campus. The shuttle was very handy although we walked a lot, even down Wisconsin Ave. to the Lake.

"Okay hotel for the money."
I was in WI for work. Needed a hotel that was close to the convention center. It was more of a walk than I expected but the shuttle at the hotel across the street was available. I was told this is a converted apartment building that was refurbished in 1995. I don't think they have done any upgrades since then. There are 20 rooms and one does not have a closet. That was the one I got. Having to have work clothes that I wanted to hang up was a challenge. I didn't get cleaning service every day I was there, its a good thing I am a clean person. The continental breakfast was pretty bad. If your going to offer pastries, they should be at least decent. It was noisy. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay again only after I exhausted all other possibilities.

"Don't do it!"
I walked in the Ambassador hotel to check-in and was told I was staying across the street. I entered a dimly lit room that was sub-par to say the least! The restroom was the only highlight because it appeared to be clean. My main issue was with the sleeping accommodations. It did not resemble the pictures at all. The sheets looked like they hadn't been changed in weeks. The linens were a ragged grey and had fresh "adult" stains in the center of the bed. I wish that I could upload a picture. The staff was very nice and moved me to the Ambassador Hotel across the street. The shuttle to downtown was also a nice touch. You get what you pay for!

Breakfast is very low quality. Coffee machine is always empty and lastly, around the corner of this hotel, there is a ballroom. When ever there is a concert or an event at that place, it is the worst at this hotel because of all of the people throwing late-night parties.

"Not the nicest hotel, but not the worst either"
The hotel is a little run down, and walls are super thin so noise travels very well. I had to call the front desk and complain so I could sleep. The free breakfast wasnt very good. There was only one table in the breakfast room. Super close to The Rave so I would probably stay again. Not the nicest hotel though.

"you get what you pay for, I guess."
Had concert tickets that we recieved last minute. This hotel was inexpensive and a block from the concert venue. There are two "ambassador" hotels on this block which was confusing. Wish I could have prepaid for a parking pass online. It was only ten bucks but still. Had service from one kind of low people skilled person and one very genuinely kind person. Room was smallish and cheapish but nothing actually wrong with it. Wifi was indeed free. Skip the free breakfast- the apples were good and the cereal was cereal. Nothing else was even really appetizing if free.

"Horrible Place"
Checked-in and lobby looked like 60's apart building design and décor. The clerk stated we'd been reserved for 1 night instead of 2. (Thank God!!!) The elevator was the size of a small closet. One of our party uses a wheelchair and could barely fit into the elevator. Fitting a luggage cart in on the second trip to our room was nearly impossible. Had to cram it in cockeyed and I was smashed into a corner to even fit in. The room was very run-down and depressing. We left next a.m. and checked into a Quality Suites where we got a suite with two queen beds, an indoor pool and a hot breakfast for the same price. We actually added an extra day to our trip and stayed there two nights. We have stayed at upscale hotels in Milwaukee such as Hilton, Hyatt, Phister and Ambassador (the original hotel across from Ambassador Inn.) Those were all booked so the reason we booked Ambassador Inn. You are not doing your company good by supporting that dive!! It was in the top 4 worst hotels in my 62 years and I've travelled all over U.S. and Madrid, Spain. Also had to pay ten dollars for parking. The three of us would have been better off staying in our car!

This was the worst hotel experience of my life. I was woken up at 2 in the morning to someone screaming at the top of their lungs and banging furniture. When I called the front desk to tell them people were fighting, they didn't seem to care at all. It went on for 2 hours. Definitely not worth the price. Someone should have calmed them down.
