Raton Pass Inn is a charming 50's roadside motel. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the location is great. You can even walk to the Amtrak station or downtown. Jan offers B&B quality service that you won't get elsewhere.

This place is just like staying at grandma's house. It is super clean, well maintained, and quiet. The decor is not modern but it doesn't need to be. Everything is in good condition. The owner is wonderful and very friendly. We were driving over a long distance and called late afternoon to reserve a room. Since we would not get... More

This is just a great little motel. So glad we saw it, read the good reviews and tried it. Jan is the best, the room was perfect, large, comfy, cleaner than clean. Where else can you sit down to a continental breakfast, (which was delicious) and have the owner sit and visit with you, and even recommend reading material. Hope... More

This is my second stay; won't be my last. If you like standard fare cookie cutter utterly forgettable stays, book a chain hotel. If you like personal and friendly service, book with Jan. the coffee is excellent the rooms are clean with a throw back to the 60s. Breakfast was ok.

As a result of current reviews and a nice writeup in Moon's New Mexico, we decided to give this Raton lodging establishment a try. Not of only does this motel appeal from the curb, but as you turn the key and go back in time You immediately feel the comfort of home. Many fixtures are retro, but every thing works... More

Jan only opens for the Summer season. Don't let that put you off, even in the off season you can call her. She often opens up a few rooms if she is in the mood. You can't go wrong with this motel. It is quirky cute on the outside with well appointed rooms. This place remains a bargain with a... More

Always a nice treat to stop here at Raton Pass Inn. Jan is a dear, always making sure everything is just right for your stay. We were very happy that she was open and ready for us. A great pleasure to talk to about activities and sights in the area. Thanks a Bunch for the Great Hospitality Jan!

We were here for the last day that Jan planned to be open this season. However, she had some regulars call and planned to let them come for a few more days. This is the kind of personal service I love. The motel is immaculate. Don't be put off by the 1950s look and the wild peach and turquoise colors.... More

Pros: Easy to find, although a tiny bit off main traveled Highway, this is WORTH THE SHORT DRIVE! Such a great blast from the past! Awesome atmosphere, super comfy beds, renovated rooms, great bathrooms, and best touch was the bowl of welcoming, dark chocolate, Hershey's kisses! THE BATHROOM IS TO RAVE ABOUT! Full size tub, plenty of space, luxurious towels... More

What a pleasant experience. It is off the beaten path; a retro-hotel back to the 50s, which i enjoy. The rooms were immaculate, and the service friendly and helpful. A blast to the past. Don't pass it up.
