“Nicest Motel 6 ever!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

By far the nicest Motel 6 I've ever been to. Called ahead to see if there was any vacancy and the guy was so friendly. When we got to our room we were shocked. The room was so nice...hardwood floors (fake but still nice), an orange accent wall and the shower was too cool! Microwave and fridge too and a really nice pool. Amazing deal!!!

stayed here during a cross-country trip in february. do not expect much from a Motel6, but a reasonably clean room, working shower with hot water, a decent bed and a quiet night. I found all of that. the building is reasonably close to the interstate, but not so close to hear traffic. My only peeve is that I had to ask for shampoo at the front desk, as it was not provided in the room.
I would definitively stay there again.

Room Tip: upstairs room are always my favourite

I am stunned (make that Stunned with a capital S) that this gets 4 stars from trip advisor reviewers. I will start by saying I often stay at Motel 6 in Moab and like it very much for the value, so it's not as though I am adverse to cheap motels. This one is gross! I saw that some rooms had been redone according to trip advisor reviews. When I saw my assigned room, I asked if I could switch to a remodeled one. He replied that I had one!! What?! What do the unremodeled rooms look like?! This one was tiny - two double beds each pushed up against a wall. No toiletries or even a box of Kleenex (although that is par for motels). There were hairs on the pillows and sheets and a ring of grime in the toilet. The fake wood floors are no upgrade when you have to listen to people upstairs walking on them at 3 am. This is truly a grungy roadside motel with no frills. I think the four stars got my hopes up and they were sadly dashed.

Hello Catherine B…. we are truly sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay here at the Motel 6 of Holbrook, AZ. After reviewing your comments we have made the necessary steps with our team members to correct our mishaps. Your absolutely right; hairs on pillows and sheets is very unacceptable. We will definitely work with our housekeeping department to improve the cleanliness of our rooms. Human error happens from time to time and we apologize. All our rooms have been updated with granite sinks, Euro showers, Microwaves/Refrigerators and wood flooring/carpet.
Good news, we are also currently in the process of installing 32” Flat Screen TVs!! Unfortunately, not all rooms have had flat screens installed. I’m sorry we weren’t able to accommodate you with that particular amenity. The fake flooring you are referring to…is a laminate wood floor that was implemented to help improve the overall hygienic cleanliness of our rooms. We’ve found that some guest absolutely love it and some prefer carpet. We have left a number of our upstairs rooms carpeted for this very reason. It’s nice for our guests to have this option upon check in!
In regards to toiletries, we do offer shampoo/conditioner at the front desk…I’m sorry you were not aware of this amenity. It saddened me as well as the rest of our team to hear you refer our Motel as a grungy roadside Motel. The entire Motel 6 staff has worked extremely hard on updating/remodeling the Motel 6 of Holbrook. As you can see from our guest photos and reviews…were far from what you’ve described. No excuses though, we need to do a better job of making sure every room is perfect and ready for our guests upon arrival. We are devoted to guest satisfaction and strive to deliver the best product possible. Most importantly, if your not happy with your accommodations neither are we. Again, thank you for your input and concerns with our property. Although, it’s not what we like to hear back from our guests…it’s still a very important step in the overall quality and improvement of our property.

Please feel free to contact myself personally in regards to any other concerns
you might have.

Kindest Regards

Russ Harper

We stayed one night recently during a trip to the Petrified Forest. The price was great, they allowed pets and the rooms were really nice and clean. It looked like new Pergo had just been put down. Front staff was very friendly and gave us a good recommendation to the Italian restaurant nearby. No breakfast but there is a Denny's right next door, which is better than your usual hotel breakfast anyway and not that expensive. The only ding was that the bed was pushed against the wall so one of us had to climb out of it.

Overall a good stay. (Note: We reserve a five star rating for the truly wonderful experiences).

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the Motel 6 in Holbrook, AZ deserves an award from the CEO's at Motel 6 for representing their company so well.
It's WAY off the VERY busy highway, so it's VERY quiet.
It's only 2 stories high and not a party town, so the motel itself is VERY quiet.
The price is VERY right, from $34.99 for a VERY clean room and clean facilities.
What more can you ask for I say....not much. Sure there's no coffee maker, foo foo furniture and fancy landscaping. But for the trip that takes you this way, do yourself a favor and stay here as opposed to the VERY noisy and hustle and bustle of Flagstaff. I made that mistake on this trip and will not do that again. Good going Holbrook staff, you do Motel 6 well.

(From my other reviews you may know I am not a big fan of Motel 6’s, due to the small rooms and ‘generally’ hard beds … but I am cheap)

FOOD … and price were the reason I stopped here tonight. Other motels were close to the same price and included breakfast, but I don’t eat usually breakfast. But I do eat in the evening and Denny’s was right next door.

Two items put this in one of a kind.
1) Three computers in the check in area for customer use
2) Grills in the pool area

Also rare for Motel 6’s, free internet and actual truck parking that is graded and covered with crushed rock.

Beyond that, this is an old motel that has started to upgrade. My room had the new ‘wood’ floor and new style bedding, but old bed, old sink style (which I prefer) and old style TV (as I was leaving in the AM I could see other rooms did have new flat screen TV’s.) I don’t watch TV so not an issue.

This room only had a shower, no tub. Again, not an issue for me, in 10 years on the road I have never taken a bath (only showers).

The room only had one bed so it didn’t seem as crowded as those with two beds

It met my basics, clean, quiet room and hot water. The truck parking and free internet were a plus and the price was right.

… I’ll have to look, is this the first ‘6 I’ve given a 5?

(I also took pictures of this ‘6, usually I do not)

I was stuck in Arizona for ten weeks on a trip out from Pennsylvania for an internship type of experience. I decided to stay at the Motel 6 because of their weekly rates. The staff was always very hospitable to me. This hotel is more distant from downtown Holbrook (and in a better part of town). All of the fast food restaurants are nearby, Denny's is next door, other localities are just down the road. I never had much faith in the Motel 6 chain. But this hotel was very nice. It was very clean. No desert pests of any kind were present. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay in Holbrook!
