Do not for any reason stay here. You would be better off bunking in your car for the night. Hotel is past the point of needing to be torn down. If you have ANY mold or mildew allergies you are done for. The place is a permeated in it. We had zero air-conditioning. Their response was turn the dial to...

Hot tub out of order, pool out of order, sauna out of order, phones out of order, most of the workout machines in tiny gym out of order, heater in my room out of order, bar and restaurant closed, and from what I understand from other reviews, this is the norm. TV has two remotes that are super confusing and...

My husband and I went for a Christmas Party my employer throws yearly at the Ambassador. The ventilation system has always seemed non existant. When we stayed December of 2014, it was our first stay. The people seemed nice and tne hot tub and pool were both in service, which was a plus for us, because my husband only stays...

Located just a few blocks off US 81 in Salina, Kansas, this hotel while it needs some maintenance is a great value for the money. Room 105 offers a king bed, sofa bed, microwave, and refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable but bring your own pillow. It offers a hot tub, cold pool with waterslide. Great breakfast and WiFi too....

It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. We arrived 15 minutes before check in time. We'd been on the road for about 8 hours, and we're experiencing a 60* temperature difference from the morning to the present. There were 2 other vehicles in the entire parking lot. One was a repair truck. When we tried to check in, they said...

It was 2:30 in the morning, I needed rest on my 3 state crossing. That is my excuse. If you stay here you had better have a real good excuse. YUCK!!!!! Dirty, dingy, smelly, room felt damp. Unprofessional desk clerk. Only thing good I can say is I didn't waste too much money and I wasn't mugged in the parking...

Many years ago the Salina Holiday Inn was the premier hotel for guests as well as for conferences in the city. I attended conferences there several times. Today, though, after the hotel has changed hands several times it's only a sad shell of itself. It could still be wonderful with only a few changes. There is a big indoor pool...

My boyfriends mom booked this hotel for us. When she said it was only $50 a night that was immediately a red flag for me. I got online, checked the reviews thru Expedia, Hotels.com, Google and their Facebook page and they were horrifying! Bed bugs, musky rooms, mildew, wet carpet, dirty showers, wet bed sheets, no AC and the list...

This hotel has lots of bad reviews. I have stayed here over the past 8 years for business and pleasure, when it was a Holiday Inn, Ramada Inn, and now the Ambassador. Most recent stay was a Friday and Saturday night. Our room was quite and clean. Bottom floor on the inside. It was plenty cool with the outside temp...

We booked the place for a 3 day conference, I had to leave after 1 night with rain pouring in the conference end hallway ceiling and all the buckets and trashcans and barrels couldn't keep the hall from getting soaked.
