The Best Hotel/Motel yet. We are 2 Australians travelling around USA by car and have stayed at motels every night for the past 2 months. We can say without hesitation that the Best Western at Raton, NM, is the best place we have stayed at, todate. Due to a snow storm, we spent 2 nights at this very new and modern Motel, Great room, great breakfast and dinner at their restraunt. Exceptional value for money. We recommend this Motel to you.

Thanks, Best Western for another great property. We stopped at the end on a long day's drive on our way to Red River. This was quite a pleasant surprise, lovely room, great TV with cable, didn't hear a peep all night from the highway or other guests. We were looking for a steak dinner, the young lady at the front desk recommended their own restaurant. We were not disappointed. The whole experience, while only 12 hours, couldn't have been nicer. We will definitely make this our regular stop in the future.

I used to always stop at Trinidad's Best Western until one night they were full so I drove a little longer to Raton... found this place. VERY NICE! Great bar and restaurant too! Great people working there! Kind of mom and pop yet ritzy affordable. I took pictures with my iphone so I could copy some of the interior design of the room I stayed in. I go from Colorado to Texas several times a year and this is the hotel of choice from here on out.

Our first time staying at a Best Western Plus. It was more than we expected & hope all Plus properties are as nice. The pool & atrium area is beautiful. we had dinner & drinks at restaurant, all excellent & reasonably priced. It was wonderful to be able eat right in the hotel, so much better than going out to look for a restaurant. Staff was very friendly & helpful. And in the morning, breakfast was outstanding. The room was large &bed was comfortable. Just loved it & will be sure to stay here again.

This shows how you can take an older motor inn and make a wonderful place to stay! When we drove up I thought ok an old motor inn, I walked in and was like hmmm. This is a very well remodeled upscale motel, calling it a motel, because by standards the doors do open to the outside. However, don't let that fool you. Each room is beautiful! Beds are so comfy and Bath & Body Works are the toiletries. We had a bottom room, and that gave us doors on eachside of the room, easy parking right at our door. The walking through the other door we found a pool side oasis! It is gorgeous! Relaxing by this sparkling pool is easy and big thirsty towels await you pool side, none of the cheap white ones with the ugly blue stripe. I was not looking forward to staying in Raton, only was staying because we were tired, I look forward to going back. One of the absolute best ever Best Westerns!

The breakfast, oh my goodness, the breakfast! A real breakfast! One you order and they serve you at your table is included free with your stay, along with a continental breakfast bar!

This place truly amazing with a friendly helpful staff. I have stayed at many places with a 4 star or higher rating that didn't even compare. These people are doing a wonderful job, keep up the great work!

Room Tip: Ground floors have doors on both sides of the rooms makes unloading and loading a breeze!

bwratongm, Manager at BEST WESTERN Plus Raton Hotel, responded to this review, October 4, 2011
Thank you for your kind words regarding our property and staff! I will definitely pass the compliments on to our employees. Most of our rooms do have two doors; one facing outside for the convenience of parking right in front of your door, and the other that opens into our enclosed 12,000 square foot botanical courtyard and pool area. It is true that this may give our property the conventional motor lodge appearance, but as you mentioned it is much more than parking and lodging. Because we have the on-site full service restaurant and lounge, as well as over 4,000 square feet in banquet and conference space available, we call it a “hotel”. Thanks again for your feedback!
