“OASIS IN THE DESERT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is the best hotel we've stayed at after traveling more than 6,000 miles (from Oregon to Boston and now on our way back again). Everything about it is good: large, warm pool, nice breakfast, comfortable bed and big room, friendly staff. We came here by accident, after traveling 514 miles from the south and just looking for a hotel next to a promising restaurant. We say Mulligan's restaurant, which is part of the Raton Hotel. Jackpot! We're now planing an "on purpose" stay here next year, combined with a planned business trip to Dallas and a visit to our magazine's cover artist, Don Childers, who lives in Colorado.

Room Tip: Above the pool was fine or us, but maybe it would be too noisy during heir busy season.

Well maintained and up-to-date facility. Hotel was clean, new, and very pleasant. Great lounge. I had driven thru the Carolinas and Tenn. but Best Western Raton had the best pulled port sandwich. Very filling. Management team led by Mike M very professional and courteous. Raton located in beautiful part of New Mexico.

we have stayed at this hotel numerous times on our trips from denver to santa fe. my kids love the pool while we love the well furnished clean rooms. the outside does not match the inside so do not be fooled. the rooms are newly updated and the restaurant/bar has good food.
i would not stay anywhere else between denver to santa fe and my kids beg to go back.

After a great day in the tiny town of Creede, high in Colorado's San Juan mountains, we arrived late in Raton and were relieved to find an alert friendly staff and a great room: spacious and clean. The room is accessed from the parking lot on one side, and another door on the opposite side of the room opened on a large, strangely bare, covered courtyard. There was a restaurant off the lobby accessible through the courtyard: we had a late dinner and breakfast the next morning. Servers and management were very good and made a valiant effort but the food itself was mediocre at best.

I have recently stayed at the hotel the rooms where wonderful.. I also ate many meal's in the restaurant. The food was good the servers were nice except the server i had was very slow. I kept having to ask another server in the restaurant for things i needed like mayo extra items etc.... The young man that kept helping me and refilling my drinks had Black "spiky hair" he was very kind and courteous even though he wasn't my server.... After I finished my meal i read the name on the receipt the server's name was Jarrod he was nice but i felt like he forgot and didn't care about my table.. Overall my experience was good especially the Breakfast... The general manager was also very helpful at breakfast it shows he cares about his customers..

Very surprised to find such a nice hotel in Raton, NM! Great staff. Room was very comfy, clean and quiet. The room had an outside entrance but also an entrance into the courtyard which contained the very nice pool and hot tub. You could also get to the restaurant/bar through the courtyard and not have to go outside. Bed was very comfortable but too many pillows for me. We just had coffee in the breakfast room, but it was set up very well and was very spacious. There was even a staff member to make your waffles/pancakes. Would highly reccomend this Best Western to anyone.
