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.

Stayed here one night on our way to Colorado. Old time motel that was clean and quiet. Included minimal continental breakfast. The manager was cordial and accommodating. Good place to stay if you are willing to go without modern hotel amenities.

"Sam", the Owner/Manager is a delight to work with. My room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Air-conditioned, Cable TV, Mini-refrigerator, FREE WiFi, microwave and a Steam Bath! Sam's parents are the Housekeepers and they take great pride in keeping the rooms well-maintained. The prices are VERY reasonable. There are several Motels in the area but "BUDGET HOST MELODY LANE"... More

This old motel is a throwback to the type of motels found along the pre-interstate highways of the 1950's. Rooms are modest size. My room was clean. The A/C unit required servicing as the fan speed was fixed at warp-10 speed. Naturally it made lots of noise. At one time there had been a pool but it's gone and replaced... More

Cheap rates, clean and large rooms, but older property and very plain. Free wifi, fridge and microwave in room. If you just need a place to lay your head, this would do it. Just don't expect any frills. Newish owners, who are still trying to learn the ropes...

The Budget host is an older motel on the north end of town in a nice and quiet location. It is an older motel but is very well kept. My room had a microwave, fridge and hairdryer. It is not the Ritz, but is very comfortable. My room was roomy and the bed was comfortable.

This was a bad experience! We called this hotel about 4 hours before arrival. It had excellent google reviews, which I now question. I had only one requirement, that we be able to get our truck and trailer into the parking lot. He said yes ma'am, we have plenty of room. He took our credit card info and then told... More

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
