The only way we could have arrived here is by reading Tripadvisor reviews, which are very reliable in most cases. The Raton Pass Inn is located on a seedy stretch of 2nd St., which is the main street of Raton, but don't let that deter you as this Motel is the place to stay for clean, comfortable rooms and great value.
Jan runs this joint and Jan makes sure that your stay will be a comfortable and pleasant one. The rate for a spacious double room with two beds was an amazing $55 and this includes a room with A/C, microwave and a small refrigerator. This place was built in the 1950s and still retains this Retro charm without sacrificing comfort or function. A full breakfast is also included, so this place is unbeatable for value.
If headed north on I-25 take the last exit (454) and the Raton Inn will be on the right. Don't be distracted by the shabbiness of some of the nearby businesses and former vestiges of an earlier period, this motel is alive and well. There are several good restaurants just down 2nd street and if you go down the road a ways to Clayton, you will find the inevitable and more expensive chain motels and a Denny's and of course, a McDonalds. I recommend either the Icehouse or Crystal (Italian) restaurants for a nice meal.
If you are passing through on I-25, The Raton Pass Inn is hard to beat for charm, comfort and value.
