Seems Google is now testing ads in the Google Maps local finder search results. There are several people on Twitter reporting it now.

There is a lot of chatter now out in the community around these new ads.

Personally, I cannot replicate them right now. So either it is rolling out or it is just a limited test.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
