We stopped here with our two young kids (ages 4 & 7) and had a good experience. Jan treats the place more like a bed & breakfast with some chocolates in the room (bonus with the kids!), bottled water and some books to read. She also had books & DVDs for checkout in the front office. The towels were nice... More

Jan has been welcoming me for several years as I pass through Raton. Yes it is small and 50s looking, but it's her charm and friendly smile that makes the place. The rooms are dated but always clean. She has DVDs that she loans and coffee and breeakfast in the morning. It's a great place to sit on the porch... More

It doesn't look like much at first glance, but glance again. It has 50's charm, but comfy beds, great heaters for those cold evenings, and personable staff. CLean, comfy and friendly.

I have stayed at this little motel for years. Not only is it clean and pleasant but the innkeeper is delightful. She remembers you - try to find THAT in a city. The breakfast is quite a spread even if there are only a few people staying. More like bed and breakfast. Quiet and always welcoming - western hospitality at... More

A gem of a place. It’s very neat, clean and easily accessible. The Raton Pass Inn’s innkeeper is very nice and helpful. It's a little off the beaten path so it's quiet. The best part is it’s very reasonably priced. We will definitely stay there again.

We stayed here by default, having arrived in Raton in the middle of the night with no reservations and all of the national chains full. The innkeeper took our reservation (if you call it that on 15 min. notice) and ran down to put extra towels in our room, since we're a family of 5. The hotel is about 60... More

We were going on day 3 of a 2-day fun road trip, and decided Raton as a good stopping point. After checking Tripadvisor, as I always do, we decided on the Raton Pass Inn. I called and made a reservation from nearby Cimerron. The owner was very friendly on the phone, and I liked her immediately! We arrived and she... More

We accidentally found this motel a number of years ago and decided to try it. It is a 1950s style tourist court type place, and a bit different from the larger chain motels. After that first stay, we have been returning at least twice a year on our way to Colorado. The rooms have been refurbished and the owner insures... More

Small one level (no steps to climb!) older building. However, the rooms were fresh and clean. Stay includes a nice continental breakfast. Owner runs the desk and breakfast, and she is very friendly and helpful. Not all of the amenities of the big chains, but we were on our way to Philmont Boy Scout Ranch, so this was going to... More

I found the Raton Pass Inn during a rain storm one night while traveling in Raton New Mexico, as some of the other motels in town had some outrageously expensive rates and they were in bad shape, also they were empty. This little motel had the friendly owner come outside to greet me, and it was a decent rate offered.... More
