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

We had a pleasant night here. The rooms were surprisingly large and very clean. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful.

We were having a family reunion and needed 5 rooms. Each room was very nice. They are large, clean and comfortable. Some rooms have steam baths that actually work. There was a refrigerator and free WiFi. The managers were very nice and helpful. My dog was welcome for a very small fee. I was very impressed and will recommend to... More

We stayed at this hotel because of other favorable reviews we had read on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. It's a nice, well maintained family run motel. Our king room was very spacious with two sitting chairs, a work station, microwave, and refirgerator. There is a seperate dressing and sink area and then a separate toilet and shower... More

Would never have stayed here based on appearances--50's style bungalow hotel, and not much has been done to the outside except a coat of paint. Inside is another story--other reviews are right about this being very clean and a great value. Updates to room interior and bathroom are recent. Hotel owners are helpful and friendly. Was nice to have free... More

I have to say this is the type of place that I would normally drive by and say, "Who stays at places like that?" It's very old and very dated -- just what you'd expect from an old Route 66 motel. However, based on reviews from this site we decided to go for it. It's very easy to find off... More

After many Google searches trying to find a clean and affordable place to stay, this place won hands down. I was a little nervous when we first pulled up because it is an older property. But once inside I immediately became a fan. We stayed at this motel on our way to Oklahoma and then again on our way back.... More

What a refreshing place to stay. This small home owned motel is great! The rooms are the cleanest we have ever stayed in. I thought there was water on the bathroom floor but it was so clean and shiney the light was reflecting off it. Even the corners are clean. Breakfast was simple but nice and the hosts are there...

We stayed at the Melody Lane on June 28, 2008. We chose it because we were trying to find an inexpensive but good motel and all the reviews we found on line said that was what it was. And we concur, enthusiastically. Our unit was very comfortable, quiet, and well appointed with refrigerator and microwave. The units are not new... More

Not bad for the price. I will give some advice: book directly with the hotel for the best rate! This isn't new, but it is clean. The decor is not fancy but it is just fine. Again, clean, clean, clean and new carpet. Loved the steam shower. The mattress was just fine. It you want new = this isn't for... More
