“Below Average for Price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

7/26/11 Stayed one night with business traveling group. Arrived late. Lots of parking although the poor-natured desk clerk told us that the donut shop next door would have us towed if we didn't move one of our vehicles. We were there to sleep only on our way through town. The mattresses were poor quality. The rooms were looked clean but didn't smell or seem clean. The towels were threadbare and left lint on us. It was OK for one night although I wouldn't have wanted my kids playing on the floor in the room. Seemed a little overpriced for the quality. It was only OK - we weren't afraid for our lives or anything, but it wasn't a place where we really felt welcomed or comfortable either.

The hotel reeks of cigarette smoke the minute you walk in. It's run down and in serious need of a remodel. Our room was dirty and hair all over the bathroom floor which proves they only changed the bedding. Or at least I hope they did. The mattresses are so thin that my 8 yr old found it more comfortable on the floor which was gross but I don't want to think about it. I think I would have rather slept in my car.

Breakfast was nothing special; two types of cereal and pastries. And we couldn't ever get connected to the "free" wi-fi.

At least they didn't have bed bugs and yes, I checked.

Room Tip: Keep driving if this is your only option.

We chose this hotel because we wanted an inexpensive place to sleep for a one-night stopover on our trip. I wasn't satisfied with this hotel at all, but I guess we got what we paid for.The Super 8 was a good stop-over location for our trip from TX to CO. But ther was no elevator, the beds were also not very comfortable, but you can not expect more than this as you are paying less.

For a basic inexpensive hotel, the Super 8 is fine. I found the staff very helpful and attentive. I left a bag at the hotel and they took care of it for 2 weeks until I could return. I would gladly stay at the hotel again.

Has wood floors ....unless you are on the 3rd floor, you hear people walking around upstairs whenever. Mattress was very hard. Parking near back of motel is poorly lit. Housekeeping was cleaning rooms at 8 pm at night when we checked in. Had a weird "use of safe for $1" waiver hand-stamped on the receipt which you had to initial at check in (when got to room, key was in safe). High Speed internet a little slow, but adequate and easy to use. Housekeeping walked into room 9:30 am next morning even though do not disturb sign was hung. Next time through, I will be checking around for other places before booking here again.

The safe fee is optional and the $1.00 charge can be removed upon request. That is noted on all Registration sign in sheets. At any time some people choose to quit leaving our staff short handed. We do our best to try to never clean at that time but unfortunately it happens but very rarely. Informing us about issues helps us so we can keep guiding our staff in the proper direction. We thank you.

We had planned to stay elsewhere while in Raton but because I wasn't feeling well I chose the Super 8 Motel (it was one of the first motels as we came into town.) The staff were very nice and accommodating, but our room was a dark and shabby--very poor compared to the $80 we spent for one night. In addition, the property seems to have some issues with the area around it. We were towing a small trailer which was hit during the night and the hotel had to call the police for issues with intoxicated people in the parking lot. Our room was clean and we had no trouble with the wireless internet or the staff, but I'm sure other nearby properties would be the same quality for a much lower price.

All light bulbs are now charged to enery saving bulbs. So we no longer have the standard bulbs we used to have.It is a shame that some of the issues happens.We do have someone here 24 hours. It is unfortunate that any guest or any company at times is faced with difficult issues as these. We continue to try and handle each issues with great concern and effort
