"Terrible."
Terrible stay, rooms were dirty, there's a smell to the place that's. This is a hotel more for students starting out at Marquette. Also it's a lower end inn for the Ambassador Hotel across the street. Stay away from here.

"Nice people, aging facility that leaves something"
The Ambasador Inn has friendly staff but is definitely an aged facility. While the rooms are nonsmoking you can DEFINITELY tell they used to be smoking-allowed rooms. The "breakfast" consisted of a bowl with one orange and one apple; two kinds of cold cereal but no milk to be found and a few containers of yogurt. Friendly people, old building in an okay part of town.

The room was OK. The TV did not work, the hallway smelled like weed, the walls were very thin.. could hear dogs whining and barking from across the hall and also doors slamming. Overall, it was a decent price for a walk away from the venue.

"Huge disappointment. Our room smelled like stale c"
Huge disappointment. Our room smelled like stale cigarette smoke so badly that it lingered with us until we got home & showered. There were long hairs in our microwave & fridge was dirty. I felt like I was staying at a motel 6. The fact that I paid $146 dollars for that was ridiculous. What a dump.

"A Good Nights Sleep after a Concert..."
Was a perfect place to lay our head after a concert at the Rave. They also have a shuttle service that runs til midnight to take you to the downtown area, and we used uber for 6 bucks to get us back! If we ever see a show at the Rave again, we will stay here again.

"Great Customer Service"
My friends and I were celebrating my birthday at Potawatomi Bingo Hall. When we arrived at his hotel, the guest Experience Manager Connie informed me although my reservation was for the Ambassador Suite (across the street) NOT Hotel she would comp me a room at this hotel. When she learned it was my birthday, she also gave me FREE parking, and $20 Potawatomi Comp certificate. The room was VERY spacious, clean, and the bed was super comfy. We will definitely make this our yearly birthday location.

TV is glued into cabinet, needed access to av ports, access box broken, alerted staff who said sorry but never fixed or offered alternative. Put a damper on stay. Also, if you remove items from minibar they are not replaced nor can you buy them at the front desk. Good beds, bedding and very clean.

"Poor choice"
Travelled with a pet, & recent surgery for me. Requested a room close to exit, the room I had was farthest from elevator. The parking around the corner & across the street was very difficult for getting luggage & dog to room, just as bad when leaving. It was physically very difficult & painful, I was really glad I was not there longer. Personally I would not stay at this hotel again.

"Sketchy neighborhood but served the purpose."
We stayed at the Ambassador Inn while attending a concert at the very near by Rave/Eagles Ballroom. The staff was amazing and the location was perfect. We didn't have a remote for our tv and one was brought to us within 10 minutes, despite the late hour. The hotel looks it's age, which isn't a bad thing. The room was clean and specious. The only criticism was that the hallways and elevator (which is an experience in its self) have this horrible smell. It is a misty odor that seems to linger. Bottom line is that I have paid more for worse hotels and worse rooms in other locations. This was not a bad experience in the least and I would stay again.

We stayed due to a concert at the Rave Club. We had a very enjoyable visit. The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable of the area. The neighborhood was a bit rough; however, I felt very safe at our hotel. I would definitely stay again if I was in the area.

"a nightmare"
I have never been to a hotel where the reception people were rude. The coffee pot had left over coffee from the previous occupant, the continental breakfast had bad milk and moldy bread. The movie I wanted to rent did not work but they still tried to charge me for it. On Thursday, October 14, we tried to enjoy some drinks and food at the Ambassador hotel's bar, the envoy, and I never felt so insulted as the bartenders were rude and did not want to answer any questions. I felt as I offended them because I was a latino man, i never felt that sensation of discrimination in such a long time. I talked with the manager and we were able to get service.

"waste of money"
first they charged me more than what i booked the room at and it took 4 days before i was refunded the difference. they charge $10 a night for parking which i find absurd. the view from my room was staring at a brick wall. they barely have more tv channels than a basic antenna tv. the wifi signal was so weak that my devices constantly lost signal and when they had signal they worked slower than dial up services from the 90s. i will never stay here again.

"Clean, Close To Everything, Neighbourhood So So."
Travelling through Milwaukee on a tour of the Midwest. Having not been to Milwaukee before I wasn't sure of the neighbourhood but I took a chance. It wasn't super. There were a lot of "interesting characters" milling about the area after dark but really, I wasn't bothered. The room itself was very clean and looked to be recently remodeled. The continental breakfast was very meager and the breakfast room only had one table in it but it was good for a grab and go situation. They are owned by the bigger Ambassador Hotel across the street and they had a nice bar and restaurant available to the Inn guests. Having said all of this, the hotel was within very reasonable distance of many attractions (I rode my bicycle to a Brewers game in about 10 minutes.) and the downtown area. In my opinion the accommodations were well in line with the price paid. I would definitely stay there again.

The staff are all very nice, which is really tragic because the hotel is not. Our room this time was not clean... there were towels on the floor, hair in the mini fridge (seriously?! How?!), cheerios stuck in the chair, and pop/mystery stains dripping down the walls. The free breakfast is okay, nothing too extravagant, but I was satisfied enough with it. Rooms need to be updated, as everything seems very worn down and perpetually dirty. But seriously, the staff are all extremely friendly/polite.

"Close to where we needed to be early the next morn"
Unhappy about the unexpected $10 parking fee that we had to pay when we checked in. Then the next morning, apparently the receptionist didn't add that charge to my credit card so I got a bill for that. Will have to make sure that I don't get charged twice for that. There was only 1 roll of toilet paper. Room smelled musty.

"DSS Hotel for Homeless People"
Nothing against homeless people but when I stay at a hotel I expect to be greeted by other guests not people who are homeless. We were greeted by a group of people smoking outside the front door. The bathroom was dirty, there was mold on the shower curtain. I make frequent trips to Milwaukee but will not be staying there again. Continental "breakfast" was a joke.

"Run Down and Dirty"
Our recent stay at the Ambassador Inn was disappointing. The hotel and the room was outdated, dirty, and smelly. There was hair in the bathtub, there was dust covering multiple surfaces, there were bugs in the bathroom sink, the elevator smelled overwhelming of cat urine, and the carpets were all stained and smelled like mold. Also, the water in the bathroom faucet smelled of rotten eggs. The coffee pot was clogged and didn't work, the TV didn't work. We contacted the front desk and they sent an employee who attempted to fix it but was never able to. There was no apology or discount for any of the issues that were report to the front desk. WILL NOT be staying again and WOULD NOT recommend to anyone who is traveling.
