COVID Won’t Keep Us Down!, Raton Pass Motor Inn

COVID Won’t Keep Us Down!

November 16, 2020

We can still take your reservations, despite two-week coronavirus restrictions.


New Mexico’s Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced Friday that the state will be entering a two-week shutdown to help control the spread of COVID-19. Starting Monday, Nov. 16, “nonessential” businesses will have to close their doors. The new rules will be in effect until Nov. 30.

Not to worry, we are an essential business! However, occupancy is capped at 25% of maximum occupancy, so make sure to book ahead of time so we will have a room for you!

Raton Pass Motor Inn is also COVID-Safe certified and is following recommended best practices to sanitize and protect our guests.

For now, we can’t do our usual continental breakfast, but you’ll find “go-bags” of snacks in your rooms so you don’t turn into the Donner Party…

We offer contact-less check-in if you prefer that – just call our office at 575-445-3641 the day of your stay to set that up.

Please note that our cancellation policies will be in full effect, as we are already having to turn travellers away. If you cancel by 6:00 PM the day before your scheduled arrival, there is no penalty. After that time, you will be charged the full cost of one night’s stay. If you made your reservation through us via our website or by phone, please call 575-445-3641. If you reserved through an online agent such as Expedia or Booking, you will need to contact them directly, and they will take care of it. Otherwise, they still want to charge us for your stay.

Governor Grisham says after the two-week shutdown ends on Nov. 30, the state will consider implementing restrictions county by county. Depending on a county’s case count, restrictions will either stay in place or be lifted.Let’s all do our part!

Wear your mask, maintain 6 ft distance and wash your hands frequently!

We will get through this!
