I stay in hotels 9 months out of the year. This was my worst experience to date.
Just to sum things up:
The owner was wasted. Not just drunk, three sheets. There were 3 of us checking in at about 8 pm and he couldn't find our reservation. When we finally got checked in, the first room we got was horrific. Dirty, with hair on the beds. It also smelled like something dead. We went back and asked the owner for a different room. He came in and looked at our room and argued with us for awhile. He made some rasict comments and finally gave us a different room. The cops were there on and off all night, and it seemed to involve the owner. At one point he was in the back of the squad car, no clue why. We slept on sleeping bags on top the covers with a chair propped against the door knob since Holbrook in general is a super shady. The next morning when we checked out at around 9 am, the lobby was locked and no one was around. It was weird.
Also there was a large German Shepad wandering around the property. I am not picky, and stay in mom and pop hotels frequently. I am even okay with eccentricities and quirks, but bottom line... Run away!!!!!
