We had traveled a lot of miles and were tired so we checked into the Americas Best Value Inn Sands in Raton. Our nonsmoking room was clean and didn't have the usual residual smoking odors that we've experienced in some other nonsmoking motels. The beds were clean, comfortable and restful. Their continental breakfast was good. We were so pleased with... More

Since this property charges $20 extra for a pet, one would expect that extra money was used to keep the room clean. Carpet was full of pet stains. Furniture was old and worn. The beds were fine. TV was old crt and the room was dark. The lone lamp was broken. Everything for breakfast was in a package. Hot water... More

This property, like many in Raton, needs some updating. We did have mold in the bathroom ceiling and at breakfast there was muffins growing a moldy green substance as well so be careful. Has potential but needs some care and attention!

Just a pass thru for our drive to CO from TX. The rooms are pretty spacious but everything inside is pretty dated. The pillow and bed covers are old and some had even rips and tears. Breakfast was basic and the town around it is very sleepy, so dont expect much in terms of food choices.

The lady at checkin was nice. I gave this property a low rating as the pool and the hot tub were closed and this was not indicated at the time of my reservation. The room had a terrible aroma of bug spray. The bed was really hard and the pillows weren't much better. everytime that you moved the headboard bumped... More

Definitely a 1.5 - 2 star motel, but for the price, I have no real complaints. Pros: *polite staff *ample-sized room *clean, even though old *quiet *air conditioner worked fine *refrigerator and microwave in room *continental breakfast included Cons: *very limited parking if you're pulling a trailer *bath/shower caulking moldy (in fairness, though, no more so than a typical home...

After driving 12 hours, my husband and I had a reservation here. We were tired or we would have left. The carpet was dirty and I had to wear my shoes to cross the room. There were dead and flying bugs in the room. The bathroom floor was sticky and the window sill was dusty so It left marks in... More

My husband and I were stopping through on our way back home to Tx. He read the reviews and thought he would save a few $. Well I refused to stay, and they refused any type of refund. We were there 5 mins and left. It had a tube tv, stains all over the out dated carpet. A window unit... More

This is an older motel that has been kept up very well. Was so surprised at the size of the room - very large with two double beds, good sized refrigerator and nice sized table and chairs - with plenty of room to move around in. The beds were really comfortable and price is reasonable. This place is pet friendly... More
