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.

Another great Trip advisor find -- a much better than average budget Motel. Even the breakfast was better than average. Highly recommended. Great price, a proprietor that understand what customer service is all about, comfortable place and conveniently located.

We were returning from a wonderful two week camping trip and found ourselves in Raton for the night. After reading all the reviews on the various hotels in the area we thought we would give it a try. It was wonderful. The room was clean, the bed was exceptionally comfortable and the hospitality was exceptional. I would highly recomend this... More

The only way we could have arrived here is by reading Tripadvisor reviews, which are very reliable in most cases. The Raton Pass Inn is located on a seedy stretch of 2nd St., which is the main street of Raton, but don't let that deter you as this Motel is the place to stay for clean, comfortable rooms and great...
