Once again I stumbled on a really good motel at a good price. It is close to Raton Pass and "Sam", the owner/manager went out of his way to make sure we were happy in every way. This is an old motel but it is impeccably clean and very well kept. The rooms are spacious and have a nice high... More

An older hotel but not at all run down. A youthful, industrious owner/operator runs the desk, great interactions! (he suggested a good restaurant too - The Sweet Shop - yum!) If, when I return to Raton, I'm there!

I'm going to say, you get what you pay for. This was a good price, but the price was matched to the quality. The room was fairly good sized. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were clean.

Check-in was easy. Parking is super convenient as you park right in front of your room. Rooms are older and simple but clean. Nice to have a mini fridge in the room. This is a great place to stay if you are passing through Raton for the night.

Stayed here one night on our way to Colorado. Old time motel that was clean and quiet. Included minimal continental breakfast. The manager was cordial and accommodating. Good place to stay if you are willing to go without modern hotel amenities.

This old motel is a throwback to the type of motels found along the pre-interstate highways of the 1950's. Rooms are modest size. My room was clean. The A/C unit required servicing as the fan speed was fixed at warp-10 speed. Naturally it made lots of noise. At one time there had been a pool but it's gone and replaced... More

Cheap rates, clean and large rooms, but older property and very plain. Free wifi, fridge and microwave in room. If you just need a place to lay your head, this would do it. Just don't expect any frills. Newish owners, who are still trying to learn the ropes...
