This hotel was clean, quiet, and the parking was very close to my room. It was nice to have a heat lamp in the bathroom, because it kept my week old baby chicks warm during the night. There was a good Mexican restaurant adjacent to the hotel, which was very convenient.

This place beat all my expectations. Very warm and friendly owner who runs a very clean operation. This place is also pet friendly and the price is right. Great continental breakfast. Owner is very informative of the area. Only stopped here one night on way into Colorado and decided to stay again on my return trip home.

We stayed for just one night. This was our first time to stay here. It was very clean and quiet! The lady that owns it was very pleasant and helpful. She knew we were coming so she had our room open and the keys inside waiting on us. If she knows you are coming she will usually have a room... More

Outstanding value and stay. Mrs. Sam was all smiles when she went in the room and like the size and decorations. We enjoyed a nice breakfast the next morning. This motel makes a good base camp for the nearby Sugarlite State Park and Johnson Mesa.

If cookie cutters aren’t your thing---and they aren’t mine---stay here when you visit Raton. (If you can arrange to arrive via Amtrak through the Raton Pass, so much the better.) Actually, there aren’t many chain motels in town (I think I saw one), but here you’re guaranteed a clean, spacious, well-appointed room; an ample continental breakfast; and a congenial and... More

A bit hard to find but this is a classic '50's style hotel. Beds are comfortable and the room is spotless. The 50's negatives are a small bathroom and tub. But the breakfast, even though limited, is excellent. Better than most chains. But be sure to visit with the owner/operator a very interesting lady. Worth the search!

Jan has created a delightfully quiet and quaint motel; giving attention to your needs and offering a great breakfast to start your day. While it is farther away from the fast food sites and other restaurants, it is a short drive to anywhere you want to eat lunch or dinner. She closes over the winter months (Nov. - Feb.), but...

I give out 5 stars on rooms sparingly, so four stars is not really a criticism. I stayed here because of the other favorable reviews, because I was going to visit Capulin Volcano National Monument the next day. The place does look a bit unpretentious from the road, and the swimming pool, as with many motels of this vintage, was... More

My wife and I were winding up our two week vacation and working our way back to Denver to fly home. Raton seemed to be the perfect place to stay before our final drive to the Denver airport. Based on Trip Advisor reviews we chose the Raton Pass Inn and so glad we did. Believe all the reviews. Jan, the... More

Jan decorated each room in the motel in very cute designs. Everything is always so clean. She is very accommodating. I always enjoy catching up with her while eating the delightful continental breakfast. A great place.
