Very large nice room. It was clean and quiet. The bed was really comfortable and nice sheets and pillows. The price was very reasonable. It was the first time we had stayed at this chain and we will again. The staff was welcoming and friendly too. The breakfast was basic continental.

We stopped here while driving from Texas to Colorado. The roads were bad and a lot of hotels were sold out. This one is pet friendly. We slept OK & the room was clean. Wouldn't stay here longer than 1 night though.

This was a very nice and clean hotel. Yes, it is an older style as we have found with Americas Best Value Inns, but it was very pleasant and friendly. The price is right, the room was very large and one of the cleanest rooms we have stayed in. We would stay here again. The parking lot was large enough... More

A good deal for a nice room. I think. I did find one empty packet of peanuts that seemed to have missed the wastebasket about halfway into our evening there but wasn't sure if my husband was responsible for it and forgot to ask. Sheets were clean (love it when they are white), carpet had seen better days but was... More

We went for an overnight trip to Raton, stayed here for the first time. Check in was quick the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. There was no extra toilet paper rolls available in the room, had to go to main office to ask for some. Also the iron is locked onto the ironing board which makes... More

Driving back from Tucson with my 83 year old Dad and 6-year old twins we rented two rooms. A small suite and a regular room with a queen bed. When we arrived we were greeted at the front desk by Thomas who was very friendly and extremely helpful. We got in late so didn't get to use the pool although... More

Traveling with a couple of friends through Colorado and New Mexico we stayed at Raton's Americas Best Value Sands motel. It was very nice and clean. The staff was friendly and informative and let us look at some rooms before we booked them. Its located next to a great restaurant, the Sands, and in a quiet area but still on... More

Just stayed at the America's Best Value Inn Sands at Raton, NM, last week. Only stayed for July 4. (It's a great place to stay to view the community fireworks display from the parking lot too. The show was REMARKABLE!) I've stayed here before several times, and it's my go-to place when I'm in town to hit the Whittington Center.... More

Just completed our 2nd stay at the Sands this year. As I stayed before its a good room at a great price, it's dated but clean and kept up. Besides it reminds me of the motels my family stayed at when I was a kid. Let the wanna be elites stay at the chain places I am happy here.
