Globetrotter Lodge

By Jacki Mieler

HOLBROOK Peter and Mona Hoeller and their daughter, Larissa, found the shadow of Route 66 and its glory days when their around-the-world travels brought them from Austria to the former Sun n' Sand Motel in Holbrook. Like so many Route 66 motels, what once was a welcome respite for weary travelers had become run-down and shuttered. When the Hoellers' time on the road ended in 2010, they decided to breathe new life into Holbrook's slice of Route 66 by transforming the Sun n' Sand into the Globetrotter Lodge. Elements of "back home" adorn all 10 rooms, as well as the lobby, where Peter's handcrafted furniture came to rest after making the trek across the Atlantic. German-speaking guests can curl up with the cherished books that Mona inherited from her aunt and that fill the bookshelves in each room. But the handmade, Talavera-inspired bathroom sinks are a reminder that this still is the American Southwest. Route 66 may be their adoptive home, but if the myriad license plates in the parking lot are any indication, the Hoellers have resurrected that fading nostalgia.
