This motel met every one of my top 3 criteria: Clean, Quiet, and Reasonable. An old motor court from the 40s judging by pictures on the wall in the breakfast area, it has been very carefully updated: The walls are fresh and bright, the woodwork clean, new tile, new carpet, even new beds. If you're looking for upscale with tons... More

Breakfast includes Belgian waffles you can make for yourself, plus cereal, plus fruit, plus muffins -- and of course coffee. Because I came in late, and alone, i was made aware of the security cameras covering the whole area. Spotless rooms. Ask for the ones with the steam showers -- something you don't find any more. Very large rooms. Very... More

My husband and i stayed here on our way home from a long trip. We we're tired from our travels and it was around dark that we arrived. The owner, who introduced himself to my husband as Sam, was very pleasant....after he rushed in from outside in the front of his building from a barbeque he was seemingly having with... More

Great place to stay. Yes it is a bit dated but our room was clean and comfortable. The bed were wonderful! The young man on duty was friendly and helpful. The WIFI was fast. Location is convenient. All around this is a good choice for the price. We went through Priceline and got a great taste.

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

Wonderful stay! Rooms are spacious and clean, plenty of hot water and great water pressure, and plenty of plush towels. Room includes a great breakfast. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood. It was very peaceful. The hotel staff is extremely helpful and friendly. It was a tremendous value!!

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. The front desk seemed concerned that we might go elsewhere at checkin because he made sure to let us know there were... More

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.
