If we hadn't seen this motel on Tripadvisor, I don't think we would have stopped! I can't tell you the last time I stayed in a motel where you parked in front of the rooms...a blast from the past! We were looking for a clean, safe place to stay for a reasonable price on our way from the DFW area... More

This is an older motel that is maintained immacuately. The room was clean, the property is very well taken care of, even the grass was clean and neat. The service at the front desk was exemplary. I've stayed in high priced (Ritz Carlton) hotels that did not impress me as much. Very highly recommended! In fact, I hoped to book... More

Great value for this hotel. The room was spotless, bed was comfortable, and management was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again if I travel through Raton New Mexico.

This motel was booked for us by a friend and at first glance, I was not pleased. It had nothing to do with how the motel looked, because after a good nights worth of sleep, coming out of the room in the morning, it was actually quaint and very well maintained! I think I had preconceived notions that were not... More

We needed a stop for the night on the return drive from Rocky Mountains to Dallas (16 hrs...). The usual suspects were sold out within 100 miles along our route, and we were referred to this Budget Host location. We were kind of suspicious, but the reviews seemed to be pretty good so we gave it a try. It is... More

I was a little concerned about the fire that had been in the news the week before our stay. We had stayed here a few years ago, and found that it had not changed at all. That was a good thing! When we checked in late, we were told that as a result of the fire, bear cubs had been... More

I was looking for an inexpensive but good place to stay on my trip from Austin to Estes Park, and based on the Tripadvisor reviews, this place seemed like the clear winner. My experience confirmed the reviews. The owners were as nice as could be, the room was spotless and roomy, the continental breakfast was excellent, and the mountain town... More

This property is absolutely immaculate. Rooms are impeccably maintained and very comfortable. We go to Raton quite a bit to fish, but usually stay at the Motel 6 because we bring our dog. This is an older motel, but everything is very well kept and the price is so reasonable, it is a much better place to stay than the... More
