We spent one night here while travelling east from Las Vegas. It was great. Spotlessly clean, really comfortable, quirky decor that makes a change from the chain motel/hotels, and an easy walk to the bars and restaurants of Holbrook, there's not many! The hosts are friendly and helpful and have done a fabulous job on the place. Young's Coral is a bar in the town and probably the most lively, it does not do food but has good beer. A really nice place for a stop over.

From the outside, Globetrotter Lodge looks like an average budget motel in a small town. Upon stepping inside, you'll find it's far more. What makes this place so cozy and unique is the hospitality of its owners, Peter and Mona, and the obvious pride they take in their establishment.

Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly at the front desk. From there, Peter showed us to our room and gave us a brief tour of it, which was a pleasant, unique surprise. He was friendly and seemed sincerely interested in our comfort during our stay. The small personal touches in the room made it evident that a lot of hard work was put it to renovate the motel. From the painted sink to the little American flag sticker on the extra toilet paper roll, it was the little things that made this place stand out.

We awoke to breakfast at the front office with reserved seating for each room. How cute! The breakfast selections were simple and tasty: bagels, toast, fruit, cereal, and drink selections. In a nutshell, it was a good representation of our stay: nothing flashy (you won't find resort-type amenities or anything gaudy), but all the small personal touches (Philadelphia cream cheese, Shamrock Farms creamers) made it clear that corners are not cut here to save an extra buck. So rare to find that, especially in a small town in the middle of almost nowhere.

Thank you for such a pleasant stay, Peter and Mona. Honestly, I'll probably have no reason to visit Holbrook as a destination in the future, but I would stop there for a night as long as Globetrotter Lodge is there. We drove through the entire town and I'd have a very hard time believing that there is any better place to stay in Holbrook.

We travel twice a year from Yuma to Hudson, WI. This year we took our travel break & stayed at the Globetrotter Lodge in Holbrook. This hotel has a neat European touch...beautiful rooms, super clean & cozy with a very nice breakfast. We will stay here again and will recommend to all family & friends. Vielen Dank!!

This was the cleanest, best organized motel we stayed in. Felt like a flashback to the 1950's. Nice clean room, comfortable bed, and a good breakfast. Right on Route 66 and a very reasonable cost. Highly recommended!

Made our reservation months in advance via phone...was sent confirmation via email when requested. Two double beds, non-smoking. Arrived after dark...around 8:00 p.m. Was assigned Room 2. Check-in was quick and we were shown to our room by the lady at the front desk. You use a regular door key and there is a door chain for extra security. Our room did NOT have the hand-painted sink but no worries...it was very quaint, very clean and the beds were comfortable and we slept well. The room did not have a phone, iron/ironing board, or alarm clock but did have a refrigerator, free WiFi with excellent connection, hair dryer, TV w/cable (good reception) and included a continental breakfast. The toilet/shower area is small but the sink area is spacious. There are no toiletries (i.e. lotion, shampoo, conditioner in little bottles) instead there is hand pump soap in shower and sink area. Towels and wash clothes are by the sink so don't forget to take them with you when you go to shower. Great deal for the price!

This is a family owned business and we were happy to support their efforts. They purchased the property about 4 years ago after it sat vacant for 10 years. Slowly but surely they're making headway restoring the whole property. It does have small but nice pool area (we didn't have an opportunity to enjoy it) and the hotel is a bit off the beaten path but we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it!

Breakfast consisted of breads, cereals, fruits, coffee, orange drink and each room has an assigned area in the breakfast room. The owners were very friendly and interested in making your stay an enjoyable one.

We stayed here as part of our Route 66 holiday and chose the Globetrotter because of the great reviews on here. We were not disappointed! We loved it. The room was really nice (we loved the sink and retro TV) very cleans and our bed was very comfy. We had a great nights sleep (we didn't hear the trains at all) breakfast was also a refreshing change lovely breads and homemade jams the apricot was very tasty. The guys running the place were also very friendly and our check in was super smooth. I would highly recommended staying here especially is you want a motel type experience.

The Globetrotter Lodge was a welcome respite. A unique motel on Route 66 in Holbrook. We were expecting a 2nd rate but I would give this place 4 stars. It was clean, the furnishings are handmade by the owner. I would say...well worth it!
