The Mansfield Ohio NewsJournal reports that the Ambassador Hotel will be razed.
At a sheriff’s auction last Friday, GRE Enterprises LLC turned in the sole bid for the landmark hotel at 191 Park Avenue West, the old Lincoln Highway.
The hotel went for its starting bid, $77,890 — exactly what the former owners owed on taxes.
A representative for GRE said, “We’ll take it down…. The old restaurant that used to be Buckeye Tony’s will stay. The rest of the lot will be cleared and put up for sale.”
The restaurant was also known as the Blue Dolphin in the 1960s when it was the Downtown Motor Lodge.
