Shark Club/Quality Inn

Postby NovakOmaha » Mon Aug 21, 2017 7:16 pm

I'm on an email list from Auction Solutions and today I got a notification that there will be an auction of the Quality Inn/Shark Club. Anyone know what's going in where it is?

For what it's worth that hotel was one of the first in the nation to use Apple computers at the front desk and around the hotel, restaurant & bar. It was the early 80s. I was also in the hotel business and the owner, Mr. Fabian from California, wanted me to install his system too. My response? "Apple? For the management system? It's a kid's toy. We're going with the IBM PCs." The rest of the story? We did go with the IBM PC system. Nobody every used them for that before. The original PC was designed to be turned on for maybe 20 minutes at a time at your house. In the first 4 months we burned up 5 mother boards, 3 power supplies and filled up a 5 megabyte hard drive that I thought we'd never fill up. The computer had 8k on the motherboard and the backup was a vhs vcr that took 4 hours to back up and another 4 hours to verify, if it actually did verify.

Anyway, the hotel's been around forever.

Is it to be torn down? Or just abandoned?

I love the reviews on Yelp. Bedbugs, stories of murders, etc. Fun stuff.

It will be torn down, making room for an office building most likely.

The Shark Club was a major |expletive| hole. I went in there once to meet up with somebody and it was the only time, but that was like 2006. I didnt realize it closed.

Are there possibly transients inhabiting it now?
