Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AllWhoWanderAreNotLost Not your average Holiday Inn
The Holiday Inn Express in Raton, NM has all the normal things you'd expect from the Holiday Inn brand, but this particular hotel is definitely better than most. The owners have done a lot on the interior and exterior of the building to make it just a bit more comfy and welcoming. The sitting room in the main check in area is a good example. They put in nicer couches and decoration and there's a nice little fireplace.
Outside they have a comfortable sitting area with a fire pit and wood rail fencing around a rock garden they created. All very nice, especially with the mountains rising in the background behind the hotel. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill Holiday Inn.
BUT PLEASE HOLIDAY INN, fix that nasty breakfast. Everything about it is processed and fake. I would pay more to get a real breakfast, one cooked in an actual kitchen. No more with the breakfast that was unwrapped from its plastic bin and microwaved just before serving it to the guests. HORRIBLE!

I have stayed at IHG all over the southwest and this is the first time the staff would not make our beds and supply clean towels. I always stay for several days at a time This has been they only time the staff refused to clean the room in all my stays

Probably our most pleasant experience at a Holiday Inn Express. Courteous, helpful, friendly staff. Neat and clean property inside and out. Well stocked evening snack - more like a light meal. Adequate breakfast. Should the opportunity present itself, we will definitely stay there again.

We had a great stay. The bed was very comfortable and the room very quiet. The breakfast selection was much better than most Hotels we have stayed in. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

This property is very clean and well kept. Access from the highway is a bit difficult. Noise level from the hallway outside the room was high due to some children running up and down the halls. Overall, a very nice hotel and I would stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by katrb Great place to stay
I was greeted very nicely and friendly and whenever I needed something it was taken care of. The rooms were nice and comfortable and clean. The air conditioning was good and slept very well. Enjoyed the visit. However, I did miss having coffee in my room when I woke up the next morning. However, I did make up for that in the dining room with variety of coffee and the choices for breakfast. Easy access to places to eat and visit and getting back on the highway to continue with my vacation. I will be staying here again.
