I stayed here en route to a sporting completion in Ft. Collins and liked the place enough I stayed again on the return home. The place is at the north end of downtown in a hard to find location. Most Raton motels are at the south end of town as are most restaurants. The Melody Lane is a boxy looking... More

This was a great find thanks to other reviews on Trip Advisor. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Loved the "retro" interior. We stayed on they way up to Colorado and liked it so much we stayed on the way back. Really enjoyed our visit and will stay again.

I can see why this place gets great reviews: it's a blast from the past type motel, reasonably clean and nicely run at a great price. But there is absolutely NO CHARM to be had here. The exterior looks like a prison exercise yard, at least in the separate annex where we were...in the "last room left," we were told... More

Room was comfortable, and the owner, a wonderful, friendly woman, was rightfully proud of the old time steam bath amenity.. you should definitely try it. Breakfast fine, place was quiet and great for the price.

I was very happy with the cleanliness of the room. The room was clean from wall to wall, no dust or dirt anywhere. The bathroom was also very clean with plenty of soap and towels. The bedding was fresh and the manager, Connie, was very nice and helpful. She is a fine representative of the company. I will stop there... More

This is our very favorite place to stay in Raton. It is easy to find but not right on the main drag, so is nice and quiet while still close to town. They have a large courtyard parking lot, which is a tremendous help is you're towing a trailer as we were last week. They also have a nice breakfast... More

We picked this motel while on the road, so didn't know what to expect. It was a little off the beaten path, but it was unique, a little rustic and good value for the price. Our room was very large and clean and the steam shower was a special experience. The manager was extremely helpful in directing us to places... More

We happened upon this small friendly motel late one night driving from Denver to Phoenix. You have to call them directly to reserve but that turned out to be very easy. The rates were so very low we were suspicious, but we followed the advice or other reviewers and took a chance, and it was excellent. The room was spotlessly... More

Very clean, quaint and quiet place to stay that's off the highway. The steam shower is a nice touch after a long day in the car on the way to the mountains. There's no restaurant on the property so you have to drive up the main drag, but Connie will give you some good recommendations.

This little motel offered us great service and a comfortable, exceedingly clean room on our stopover from East Texas to Keystone. A no-hassle, welcoming check-in, when we were so tired, was great! Nice.
