Ambassador Lodge / Knights Inn1601 W. Route 66, Gallup, NM
By 1960 another 6 or 7 rooms had been added in a third building (not shown) was added, it was elevated on stilts a full story above the ground. Those new rooms overlooked a heated swimming pool at ground level and playground that was somewhat uncommonly sunken about 4 or 5 feet below grade. Both the pool and playground are gone, but the remnants of both were still visible in 2012.
The garages have apparently long ago been converted to new guest rooms, but the 1960 AAA Tour Book listed the motel as still having 22 garages. That year you could rent a room for the night here for as little as $8.00.
