The Home of Vintage Cool

About Us

COVID-19 update (hey, everybody else is doing them!) We are currently staying open in a reduced status for people who absolutely need to be on the road and need a clean, safe place to stay. We'll do this as long as we can afford to, or until we are told differently. Our wonderful housekeepers are taking extra precautions for their own health, and for that of our guests. Rooms are given a least one night off in between guests just for an added layer of protection. If you are a health care professional who needs lodging in Raton, please call us about special rates--we do not normally do extended stays, but will make an exception under current circumstances. Everyone try to stay well, and we will see you on the other side of this crisis. 

We headed west in 2016 to find our mid-century dream here in Raton, USA. Since our arrival, we've been working hard to fill the motel with authentic vintage decor. From the ever-playing Zenith Hi-Fi in the office, to the 50's Westinghouse fridge in that chills your morning juice, and the classic cars and trucks that inhabit our parking lot, you will get your fix of nostalgic goodness while you're here.

You do get the more modern conveniences of free WiFi, a flat screen TV, and a microwave and mini-fridge in your room, so never fear that we're a little too stuck in the past.

Your continental breakfast includes Jason's famous Hi-Test coffee and almost always entertaining conversation with other guests and us. One of our goals here is to get our guests to connect with each other--life today can push us away from each other so easily, but a shared meal is a great way to remember that we're all just on this trip together.

Drift on through, stay a while, or make yourself part of our big, dysfunctional family. And don't forget to take home that pack of candy cigs as your memento of Raton Pass Motor Inn.

We love to accommodate everyone from roving loners who just want a one night stay, to large groups who feel like taking over the whole place and making it their own for a few nights. If you've got a group who'd like to hang out for a while--maybe for a retreat, club event, wedding, or family reunion--call us up and let's talk! Plan far enough in advance, and we can offer you special rates and extra goodies.

Please note that we welcome all guests, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. (Unless you're a jerk. If you're a jerk, kindly stay elsewhere, we don't have time for that.)
