          An older motel but nice. Very clean. No ac but we didn't mind as there are ceiling fans. The heated pool was 86 degrees and we loved it. The staff is friendly and helpful. The price and location are exceptional! Great water pressure.

          I love the retro coolness of the Ambassador motor lodge. They are wonderful. Very friendly and accomodating. I would reccomend this place as well as the Capri next door, anytime. Tahoe is beautiful, cant wait to get back.
