We stayed here on our way to Colorado with our golden retriever and setter mix. The lady at the front desk was very welcoming and there were cookies waiting in the Western Style lobby. Our room was on the first floor near the end. The room was small but very clean. The breakfast offerings were amazing! There is a pool... More

Picked this hotel because it was the closest to the Whittington Center so if this is where you are going this is the best place to stay if you can't stay on the actual Whittington Center grounds. Check in was easy. The rooms are as they appear in the photo posted. Very clean and neat. They have a very nice... More

Rooms were very clean and updated. Staff very helpful. Lots of parking that is easily accessible. Very busy in the summer as many folks stop here during their trips to Colorado so book ahead or you are not likely to get a room.

I recently stayed at this hotel on my way to Colorado. It was a nice hotel, but pretty pricey for what it offered, I ended up paying $163 for just one night! And there were hairs in my soap dish which was pretty gross... The best part about this hotel was the kitchen - they had a buffet from 5-7... More

Stopped here for the evening. The property had good reviews and was in an area we wanted to stay. When we checked in, noticed sign to "ask" about free movie. When I did, I was told that if I reviewed the hotel on "Tripadvisor", printed the review and brought it to the front desk, I would be eligible for the... More

My kids and I stayed at this Holiday Inn on our way to Colorado last summer, and we loved it so much that we stayed here again this summer. Beautiful property, friendly staff, fun putting green for the kids outside, delicious snacks served in the late afternoon/early evening, and a comfortable night's sleep. We couldn't ask for anything more. The... More

Never stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before.... This was an EXCELLENT hotel! Prices was right, front desk was cheerful... the Handicap room was HUGE and had all the amenities an ADA room should have (but usually miss)! Rooms were spotless and well designed.

While passing through the area, my daughter and I needed a place to stay. I had seen the billboards for the Holiday Inn Express and thought why not.

We come here on occasion to visit New Mexico, and this hotel is very convenient. The service was great, a lady named Anaya helped me in every way needed. The rooms are very quiet and big enough for a family and it is very clean.

We make a trip to Raton every July 4 for the balloon rally. Prices are reasonable for busy weekend. The rooms are cleaned each day and always feel fresh. Temperature of the room is always reasonable, and we can make any minor adjustment we need. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We feel like we are staying with old friends.... More
