The rate was supposed to be around $35/night but instead we were charged double that amount. We arrived around midnight and just needed sleep and a shower before getting on the road again early in the morning so we were looking for something cheap. When I inquired about the rate in the morning suggesting that perhaps there was a misunderstanding... More

This older motel ha a lot of great things going for it that make it a better value than the Motel 6 down the block. The bathtub in Room 6 is large, and there is great water pressure in the shower. The towels are large and fluffy and the tile looks new. A coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave are all... More

Even though the room was older, the room was clean and the people at the front desk were extremely helpful. We stayed here for over a month and never once had any issues. We would stay here again if we traveled back here through Raton. We have absolutely no complaints to voice in this review.

The room was clean, yet dated...The lady behind the desk was very helpful and nice. The price was right for a clean place to sleep and shower. It has a yummy restaurant right next door. close to shops and highway.

I don't know how he can get away with advertising "Clean Rooms" on his sign without being sued by the State's Attorney General because the room was really bad. The carpet looked to be 50+ years old and never cleaned. Stay away

We got to town late over the 4th of July weekend and everywhere else was booked. The was the only place left. It's a dump. The room was like Miss Havisham's house - covered in dust. Everything was grimy. The carpet was so dirty it was a completely different color than the original that poked out from under the armoire.... More

Rude, surly hindu desk clerk. He would not honor his coupons in the Saver booklet. Just kept saying "busy time, busy time". He wanted to charge me more. I finally went up the road to the Motel6 and got a nicer, cleaner room at a better rate.

We needed a place that would take pets. None of the other Raton hotels would take them. This wasn't a place we would have chosen otherwise. The place is definitely past its prime, but is mostly well maintained. Lots of stained carpet, chips on porcelain, mildew odor, too-soft mattresses. It needs serious refurbishing, but, for the price and what it... More
