“Peaceful place to unwind!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

I drive quite often from Nebraska to Phoenix and have found this a great place to stop and rest along the way. Raton doesn't seem to offer much as you fly by on I25 but you would be surprised at what's there. Linda greeted me at the front desk and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The breakfast is above average and surprisingly they offer an evening reception with sandwiches and snacks that was great after being on the road all day. The place is extremely clean and so quiet but the staff is what makes this your best hotel choice! There are a couple of really good restaurants nearby and the wildlife and spectacular little side trips in this area make Raton more than a one night stand.

Room Tip: Even though this hotel is right off I25 I have stayed in several rooms in different locations and yo...

Raton is not much of a destination, but it is a good place to stop. Our family spent the night here on our way to Colorado, and we found the hotel nice and the staff nicer. Linda greeted us warmly at the front desk, and the hostesses at the continental breakfast did a great job of taking care of everything. The location is a bit tricky, and I might have missed it without my GPS nav. The room, however, was spacious, clean and quiet--perfect recipe for a restful night!

What a gem! This hotel is perfect for the weary traveller. Yummy snacks at manager's reception could pass for dinner. Helpful staff, clean rooms. Great nights rest before we head to the mountains and hit the slopes. Clean rooms and fluffy pillows. Great value.

We have travelled through Raton for years and for some reason have never stayed at this HI location on the southern edge of town. It is conveniently located just off I-25 and, while somewhat isolated and not near many walkable amenities, this assured a quiet stay. The desk clerk was very accommodating and friendly despite having to work on Christmas Day, and kindly upgraded us to a suite since the hotel was not particularly busy on the holiday. Very attractively priced for a HI Express.

The staff is very professional and welcoming - The lobby sparkled with a big, beautiful Christmas tree. Everyone, including the cleaning team (which is very unusual but was awesome) were very friendly and greeted me when I passed them in the hall.

I had a great night's rest and the rooms are very clean and quite.
