“Mulligan at Mulligan's at Best Western Raton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

If you spend any time driving up and down I-25 between Texas and Colorado, you will find that the ONLY motel/hotel worth staying at is the new Best Western in Raton, New Mexico of all places. Imagine taking an old Holiday Inn Holidrome (with pools, palm trees) and FIXING it with taste and a great restaurant ....yea, kind of hard to believe out there in the middle of nowhere....but this is an oasis surrounded by thousands of miles of otherwise smelly, scary motels. It just opened, so you probably haven't heard about it.

Room Tip: get the 1st floor next to the pool...two entrances for each room.

We have an old German Shepherd who needs to be with us on our trips. It is difficult to find quality hotels that will accept pets. This is an older hotel that has been completely remodeled. They have an entire building dedicated to quests with animals. The rooms are huge, have easy to clean tile floors and comfortable beds. The main hotel is very nice with a beautiful indoor pool. The complimentary hot breakfast was also good. I would definitely recommend it to any traveler looking for a convienent place to stay on their way to Denver. We will stop there again on our way to visit the grandkids.

This was a comfortable hotel, convenient location from the interstate, very clean, very nice staff. I would like the rooms to have a little more light (at least the one we were in). Comfy beds!

Room Tip: Get one with a window...

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.
