We stayed for one night and arrived very late (almost midnight). Upon arrival we were greeted by the night watchman. No problem. He showed us to the Bat Masterson room, which had a double bed in the main room with a twin bed in a separate room. The room with the double bed contained a ceiling fan, which is always... More

I've traveled through Cimarron many times and had no idea this gem was even there! It's a little off the main highway, but well worth the detour. The history is incredible, the hotel is beautiful & the staff friendly and helpful.

One of the most unusual hotels we’ve stayed in. A historic hotel where many famous "wild, wild west" guests have stayed, drank, dined and died. Known as a haunted hotel, the current owners embrace the eerie stories and create an atmosphere that's part museum, part film-set, without being tacky or childish. We found a cosy, warm hotel after a 50... More

I've stayed here before (twice actually) and I absolutely love this place! It's historical (original), beautiful, creaky, old and awesome! The bar ceiling still has bullet holes in it. The restaurant is wonderful, great place to eat and great prices. They have placards/info on the walls outside of the rooms detailing who stayed there. The furniture is original as is... More

We enjoyed our stay at the St. James simply for the history of who came before us. It is a lovely hotel. With that being said, I do have two complaints. The first being the overwhelming use of Febreeze in the room and on the linens. For people like me who are sensitive to chemicals and avoid use of them,... More

Stayed in Buffalo Bill's room, everything was very nice and clean. Bought a professional recorder just for the experience of this hotel. After hundreds of questions, we did get a full sentence response in the hallway upstairs.

Had a chance to stay two nights in the St. James recently. It was the same rate as a "budget" place in Raton but what a difference. The place was amazingly clean--seriously, you could eat off the floor in our room. This in a building that is from the 1870's!! Breakfast (to order in the restaurant) was included in the... More
