The Home of Vintage Cool

About Us

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 AMi jukebox in the office, to the 50's Westinghouse fridge in the breakfast room, 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.

UPDATE: In June we purchased the adjacent cafe building, which so many of you have encouraged us to do. No, we are not going to be opening our OWN cafe (we might have friends taking on that task in the future, but it's not a certainty yet). We will be in the process of doing some renovation, and will be moving the office and breakfast to that building. In the interim, we will be scaling down breakfast for a while to add the room it currently occupies back as an income-producing room. You will still get Jason's famous Hi-Test, and we'll be providing more food of a more grab and go nature. Please be patient with us while we go through what will probably be some growing pains! We're striving to make your experience even cooler!
