For $36 dollars, I was just hoping for the sheets to look like they'd been changed recently, but I was blown away by how clean this place is. The decor is very "early 70s" , but the people who run it were very nice, and seriously the room was spotless. They do let pets stay (less than 50 pounds), there... More

For over 45 years we have traveled the route through Raton and never stayed there. This year we did, as a result of Trip Advisor reviews. The Melody Lane Motel located on the old highway through Raton has been kept up to answer the needs of the traveler. The rooms are large, had refrigerator, microwave, TV and seperate lavatory from...

Not to repeat the other glowing reviews, but this place is a great little find. Honestly, I usually don't bring my family to budget hotels, and I was skeptical about paying only $56 to stay here. But on recommendations from this website (and full hotels in Raton that night), we did it. Boy are we glad! It's very 70s retro,... More

It's one of those older hotels. If you're easy to please and don't want to pay the exhorbitant rates at the mid range chain hotels, there's nothing wrong with this hotel. If you're picky and want a work out facility with your room, this is not for you. The mattress was saggy, the staff was o.k., it had a small... More

Best of the Best Bargain Motels!! Friendly hosts, spotlessly clean room, appeared freshly remodelled & even had fridge & microwave. Comfortable bed & lovely wood ceilings. Highly recommend as one of best bargains we have ever enjoyed in this price range.

We loved the Budget Host! Wasn't thrilled at first and booked it as was the last motel available in Raton on a busy spring break weekend. Completely satisfied. Bedding was in good shape and beds were comfortable overall. Room was very clean and plenty warm. Parked steps from the door to the room. Steambath built into shower was tons of... More

I stayed at this hotel based on reviews from this site and I really enjoyed my stay. There is a steam bath in the room, I didn't use it but my Husband did and he really found it relaxing (he does have a warning not to touch the nozel the steam comes from it gets very hot). The hotel is... More

We had a great stay here! Clean, comfortable, great price. The hosts were very friendly and accomodating. There's a nice patch of grass with a double covered swing and a table with four chairs in the courtyard of the building. It was lovely to sit and watch the sunset over the mountains of Raton while the dog stretched her legs... More

We travel through this area several times a year and always stay at this hotel. The rooms are clean with amenities you would expect from a moderately priced hotel. What sets this place apart from all others is two things. #1 They allow pets, specifically cats. The first time we went through Raton, we were exhausted and couldn't find a... More

Didn't know what to expect from a Budget Host, but this place was great. The bathroom (along with the rest of the room) was exceptionally clean. Room, while dated, was comfortable and unexpected at the price we paid. Our friends paid double what we did at the Holiday Inn Express, and said our room was much cleaner than theirs. I... More
