“Tent”
Reviewed October 3, 2008

Parking: Good
Access to Painted Desert and Petrified Forest: Excellent
Staff: Very Good
Room: Very, very small; we felt like we were in a tent, but it was part of the fun - along with the crazy colored bedspreads!!!

Being right on the main highway, you have access to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest in either direction. It's a wide street but pleasantly quiet; I prefer just going south and then hooking a left on over to the national park area. If you decide to leave the hotel and head north, the highway is near by. There's no way you can miss it going either direction. Nice Native American art throughout the town and along both routes to everyone's main destinations.

  • Liked — Cute little room
  • Disliked — It was all good

With the possible exception of a Holiday Inn Express that was full the night I was in Holbrook, Motel 6 really is the best maintained motel I saw here. I made a point to drive around all of them, looking for telltale signs of maintenance such as faded drapes and piles of debris in the rear, and this one scored highest.

It's a typical exterior-corridor motel probably at least 30 years old but renovated within the past few months, said the friendly clerk. My room had a brand-new lighted stall shower, granite countertop, new carpet, and even a microwave and fridge -- not sure if the latter are typical here or if I just lucked out. Surprising for a Motel 6, there were 2 computers in the lobby for browsing internet free of charge. It's also adjacent to a 24-hour Denny's.

On the downside, it is a Motel 6 so don't expect a hairdryer, shampoo, or more than 1 tiny bar of soap (yes, to share between the sink and shower). But at $39.99, who cares? If you're looking for luxury, I'd head up to Winslow and stay at the historic La Posada. Me? I wanted to be near the Petrified Forest N.P., and Holbrook is the closest town.

On a related note, I checked out the famous Wigwam Motel, but it was booked -- and good thing because it appeared a bit too antiquated for my tastes. But the $20 T-shirt I bought!

  • Liked — Maintenance & Upkeep; Price
  • Disliked — Well, It Is a Motel 6 -- I'd Prefer at Least a Fairfield Inn

Bet you didn't know Motel 6 could cost you $325 for a night's stay. The Motel accomodations were what we expected fairly clean, quiet, cool. The night stay was OK it was the next morning where things went sour. We got up, packed up and put most of our belongings in the trunk went to the store while our daughter stayed in the motel room watching dvds on the bed. We returned to the room and decided to walk next door for breakfast, we left the remainder of our items in the room closed/locked the door and went to eat. Breakfast took all of 45-50 minutes, we returned to the room at about 9:30 am to grab the rest of our stuff. I unlocked the door looked in and the beds had been stripped and lo and behold no dvd player or dvds. I immediately went to the office, you see, we had NOT even checked out; a search began...
I will save you all the hours this took by giving you the bottom line...the housekeeper says she never saw the dvd player and dvds on the bed, the police never found them. So, if you unwisely choose to stay here please do NOT feel too secure, do NOT leave anything valuable in the room while you are out, or leave someone in the room to watch it. The management was apologetic but I am still out $325, can you believe they didn't even offer to reimburse us for the night's stay? Good news the Holbrook police got there within 10 minutes of my call and they were very competent...other than not finding my property. My suggestion would be to stay at the Wigwam in Holbrook, we moved there for the next night and loved it, but call ahead so you can be sure to get one...they have a website check it out!

  • Liked — I learned a good lesson here
  • Disliked — Just because the room is locked it does NOT mean it is secure, please do not stay here

We would like to give our sincerest apologies for the mishap of the previous management. There should’ve been some proper steps taken with this matter and of course some sort of accommodations should’ve been offered for the trouble. We understand you weren’t ready to vacant the property and were obviously taking your time to leave. Housekeeping should’ve doubled checked to confirm departure and then enter the room. In regards to the DVD player and DVD’s we are terribly sorry you didn’t get them recovered in the process. We’re currently under a new management team and housekeeping staff. Please accept our apologies and invitation to experience the new Motel 6 of Holbrook, Arizona. We will defiantly make this a better experience for you and make sure you are taken care of for the inconvience you experienced when you visited. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call us at 928-524-6101 and speak with one of our friendly representatives and they will be happy to assist you with any concerns you may have. The best of luck to you and yours!

Average Motel 6. The price was reasonable. You are on the opposite side of the freeway from Downtown so you really can't walk to anything. It is nice that this location is not on top of the freeway like many other Motel 6 locations. Holbrook is a great town to spend some time in. I wish we would have had one or two full days to spend there, instead of just doing a stopover. Lots of history in the town. A number of popular Route 66 sites are there.

My friend and I decided to take a trip to Arizona just to get away. We found Motel 6 to be very reasonable with a beautiful swimming pool and patio area (which we used to BBQ our dinners). The new owners have done a wonderful job of renovating the rooms. Everything was new and clean.
