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

Although it is a little bit older motel, this place was extremely friendly and cozy and just an overall good stay! The manager Connie was very friendly and extreme Y nice and even gave us some information brochures for our trip to Taos. I'd definitely recommend staying here if you are driving through Raton and need a place to stay... More

I stayed at the Budget Host Motel in Raton, NM, for one week and totally enjoyed the place. The room was large with two queen beds, microwave, fridge, TV, free internet and lots of hot water with great pressure in the bath. The room was clean and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. I was surprised to see such... More

The room was fantastic, equipped with a steam bath that was the perfect relaxer after our drive, and it was very clean. The owner, Sam, is very hospitable and welcomed us when we arrived late at night. It's a bit out of the way, but is totally worth the drive! We will be back!

I spent one night here when I drove from Albuquerque to Denver. The motel is not on the interstate, it's on Second Street which seems to be the old highway in the pre-interstate days, so you will have to drive a mile or so off the interstate to get to it. If you're looking for a clean place which is... More

We were broke down in Raton for four days and the people here made it a pleasant stay. Everyone went out of their way to help and accommodate us. The Budget Hotel is a just over a mile off the interstate, but WELL WORTH the few extra minutes to drive past the motel 6 or super 8. For the same... More
