Rooms in Raton, NM were at a premium for the two nights I booked at Budget Host, due to an National Rifle Association meeting. The only choice for two nights was Budget Host so we grabbed it, based in part on tripadvisor reviews. We only lasted one night. We arrived after 4:30PM and our room was not ready. It was... More

I stayed last night with my wife and two kids, plenty of room, nice and clean, quiet, just a very pleasant stay. All for $60, pretty good deal all the way around. Don't expect five star accommodations, just a clean comfortable room with very nice folks running it.

Great older motel. Park at your door in assigned spot. Checked in with the owner...that doesn't happen much anymore. Steam shower was worth it, but ask for it because not all rooms have it. Paid $60 total for 2 seniors. Quiet location. Very clean. Wifi comes and goes.

Very nice establishment, sweet retro atmosphere, nice clean room, host was very happy to accommodate. We ordered in pizza, as there are no eating places within walking distance. Town is full of history, but unfortunately, most of it was closed. Would have loved to explore more shops etc.

This place is a little off the beaten path. It's an older hotel but the rooms were immaculate! The bed was very, very comfortable and the management is very friendly. The steam shower was absolutely awesome after a long drive. I'm coming back when I pass through Raton.

Very nice quiet hotel in a nice part of the town of Raton. Easy access off and on the interstate. Reasonably priced and very pet friendly. Very courteous staff and they offer a basic continental breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.

Lets start with tar smell from the driveway, people outside all hours on the phone, the bathtub hasn't been cleaned forever. This was not Budget at $89.65. My suggestion is stay in another town for lodgings and food.

Don't let the blast-from-the-past exterior of Melody Lane put you off. Our room was comfortable, quiet and clean. Good mattress and a recently renovated bathroom - complete with steam bath. The owner is personable and helpful. We stayed eight nights and wouldn't hesitate to stay again
