We travel from Colorado to Texas on a regular basis and found this gem on Trip Advisor. Off the main road, quiet, safe and just a nice, comfortable affordable place to stay. The rooms are clean, good sized, and the beds are comfortable. We plan on making this overnight stay on trips from now on. It's like the 70's updated,... More

The front desk people are the best, inviting, and funny. The rooms are a bit dated but clean and comfortable. The in room steam bath was awsome. It's worth the stay just to try steaming. I wouldnt stay anywhere else in the little town of raton.

Needed a cheap hotel for a stopover while driving to New Mexico and that's exactly what I got. I arrived at 7 and the office was closed. Rang the bell and the gal came from her room/apt to check me in. The room was pretty cold when I went in and the heater made lots of clicking noises for a... More

Spacious room, clean and quiet. More than you expect from a hotel at this price. All the usual amenities plus a steam shower. We stayed overnight on a road trip and it was perfect for that. Microwave, refrigerator, flat screen TV, cable, free wifi. Parking at the door of the room for quick unloading.

Clean, comfortable and friendly staff. If you are looking for a reasonably priced place to stay overnight, this is the place. We've been stopping here from Texas to Colorado for over 5 years and have never had a bad experience. The breakfast is average but not bad.

it is an older motel, rooms have been updated, but it is still dated. Clean, comfortable and quiet, what is there not to like. And then there is of course the steam shower! Any flaw, if they were present, will not seem important after a steam shower!

As an alternative to the higher priced national brand hotels I found this motel a great place stay. The accomodations are comfortable and clean but has a dated decor. Amenities are limited but there is flat screen TV, wireless internet and continental breakfast. Bottom line this is a value. If I would return to the area I'd have no reservations... More

My experience started off with the motel manager calling me while I was en route to let me know that the highway that she assumed I would be taking into Raton was closed due to snow. Wow. That's some service. (By some miracle, I had decided to take a slower alternate route just for fun. So things worked out.) The... More
