My extended family spent a night here after a wedding in Taos. Just brilliant. We had dinner in house followed by drinks in the bar - the barman even slid shots of whisky down the bar for us. Wonderful atmosphere and laughs aplenty. We stayed in the hotel proper and I heartily recommend.

My husband & I planned our trip as a quick get-away for his birthday. We love staying in old historic hotels in Colorado and New Mexico and the St. James Hotel was one we had been wanting to visit for quite a long time.

Let me start by saying that my husband and I enjoy old hotels. We planned to stay in Cimarron because of the St. James, and we also planned to eat at the restaurant and kill a couple of hours in the bar. This was Sunday night, and not much else would be open. We arrived at about 6:30 to check... More

We stayed in the addition behind the historic Hotel. The rooms were adequate and the patio areas with outdoor fireplaces were charming. Historic rooms were beautiful but I am not inclined to sleep in a room where I cannot open my windows. Dining room and the locals and the restaurant were fascinating!

I have been wanting to stay at the St James for years, as I have a particular interest in history. We were checked in by a friendly receptionist who made us feel very special and welcome . We were given the William F. Cody room, which is spacious and bright. It was furnished with two large antique chairs, a bureau,... More

A lot of local history and good food. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Give yourselves time to walk the halls and learn all that's happened in our county! Make sure and look at the bullet holes in the ceiling of the bar from years ago.

I even encountered the ghost of Mary Lambert when I was feeding my baby son. Last week I was talking to someone interested in haunted places and I recommended the St.... More

Stopped by the St James hotel and had dinner. The restaurant was very clean and updated. Very nice atmosphere with great service. And have to wait very long for service for my food. The hotel itself was very beautiful old that night we kept and very clean. If an old historical site. Everyone should visit

We flew into the Raton airport, borrowed one of their cars and drove to Cimarron for a stay at the St. James. I LOVED how authentic all of the furnishing were and was especially grateful that there were no t.v.s in the rooms. We stayed upstairs and our room was comfortable. For dinner, we had NY strip and Ribeye steaks.... More

I have been to a couple historic hotels and this was by far the best.everything from the furnishings to windows to the locks were period and fit the era of the hotel perfect.there were plenty of history lessons and stories in the hallways to make the trip really exciting. And the food in the restaurant was out of this world.
