Modern Amenities with Vintage Flair
Coast on in, stay for a while, and make yourself part of our big, funky family. Rooms are placed in the mid-century modern era with a decidedly Southwestern flavor. Each has its own unique theme, ranging from the Santa Fe Trail to Movie Cowboy, to the Pin-Up Room and Reveille Room. They love matching guests with a room that resonates! For example, many outdoor enthusiasts ask for our Field & Stream room.
The rooms are decked out with modern conveniences, including free WiFi, flat-screen TVs with Roku streaming devices and complimentary Hulu + Live, microwaves, and mini-fridges––so there’s no need to worry about straying to far from the present day.
Next door, the owners refurbished the old café building, creating office space and a breakfast lounge. While the café is no more, you can still grab a cup of coffee while chatting up other guests and travel companions. In addition to comfortable lodging, four-footed furry companions are welcome (select rooms, only).
There’s lots to do in and around Raton, just ask the front dest, They love to help guests create an itinerary of fun and memorable activities.
Raton Pass Motor Inn is at the foot of Raton Pass with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets and fantastic views of the surrounding mesas. For example, vibrant rainbows appear when afternoon thunderstorms form to the southeast, on their way to the Texas panhandle and deer saunter through the “glamping garden” in the mornings and evenings.
After your morning coffee, take a quick hike or bike at nearby Sugarite Canyon State Park. The park has almost 20 miles of hiking/biking trails. Go fishing or kayaking on Lake Maloya! If a scenic drive is more your speed, Cimarron and Eagle Nest are nearby, leading to Angel Fire, Taos, Red River, and other highlights along the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway. Folsom and Capulin National Monument are also worth a visit, especially if you take the road across Johnson Mesa!
A recent guest described it this way on Hotels.com:“This place is the best. It’s a funky little place with lots of character. The rooms are all decorated differently and have names. The management was the nicest, very welcoming and had lots of information about the area that was very helpful. Would definitely recommend.“
