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

We stayed one night during a road trip when we were simply looking for a place to sleep. We decided to take a chance on a lower-priced motel and chose this motel based upon other Trip Advisor reviews. This is an old motel with no frills, but the room was spacious and very clean, and the king-sized bed had a... More

We had a very enjoyable stay. The hotel staff was great, the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. A quite location, no traffic noise or other guest noise. We had a steam bath in our room which was nice and relaxing. It's cheaper and nicer than most hotels in Raton.

Stop for the steam shower, comfortable beds and nostalgia of small town ambiance! Connie, the manager, directed us to a great late nite restaurant with a client discount, and was very courteous. We liked the lite complimentary breakfast choices, and would stay again.
