This was a very nice little motel. We arrived late, and the guy at the front desk was very friendly. Another review said not to let the outside scare you. I usually try to avoid this type of motel (U-shaped building that wraps around the parking lot), but we were extremely happy. The grounds were very well kept, and all... More

This was a great motel we stopped at to get some shut eye after a long drive. What a pleasant surprise to have found a motel that is clean. The towles were fresh and clean and the bathroom was the same. The grounds around the motel are also very well kept. The staff were extremley nice during our booking and... More

We stayed here because we couldn't make it home in 1 day - so not by choice. It turned out to be a very pleasant experience - the rooms are large and well appointed (steam shower was great), and the place is sparkling clean. The manager was very personable and helpful, and the breakfast, although light, was fine - esppecially... More

This place looks a little unfriendly on the outside, but it had the best reviews on tripadvisor of any other place in Raton, so we gave it a try. The rooms look a little dated, but are extremely clean and comfortable. We had a beautiful wood ceiling in our large room! The shower was equipped with a steam feature which... More

In this day and age of cookie cutter hotels when you can hardly distinguish one from the next, the Budget Host Melodie Lane motel really stands out. We stayed here merely to break up a 7 hour drive from Denver to Albequerque and are very glad we did. It was nice to be able to park five feet from your... More

We were looking for a decent place to stay near Capulin Volcano. I checked Tripadvisor and this place came up. Looks a little questionable on the outside as these types of motels you never know what to expect. What a gem, truly a clean, friendly, mom and pop type of establishment. Cheap rate. If I had any complaint, it might... More

First time we stayed at this motel was in 1994, again we returned here in Oct 2009 and stayed on our way to CO and on our way back to AZ. The whole property is clean and neat as a pin. Our Cocker Spaniel is as welcome as we are, and the rooms are immaculate! Be sure to include this... More

Previous reviewers got it right - this is indeed a really nice place to stay. Beginning with the warm welcome by the owner (and his very-friendly sidekick, Roscoe the spaniel), we very much enjoyed the quiet setting and our surprisingly-spacious and VERY clean room. The complimentary continental breakfast items were basic but varied and quite adequate, and we had the... More

This is a no frills, nice, clean motel. It's quiet and well kept but best of all, it's inexpensive. I've stayed in more expensive hotels in Raton and you don't get more for your money. It doesn't have the latest furnishings but it does have everything you need and everything works. We felt safe here with our children. We would... More
