i can't believe i haven't done a review of our stay here previously. the last trip advisor email reminded me of haunted hotels...this is definitely one! they even do murder mystery weekends here. the rooms are as authentic as they come, the staff was great, dinner was delicious, and they even ask you not to fire any more bullet holes...

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. In frustration I said I guess you can't do anything, response from my woman's voice was very clear.....if you would just wake up... More

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

Drove into Cimarron specifically to see this hotel. Glad we did! So filled with history! Loved seeing the room Wyatt Earp stayed in! We chose to have lunch here and were glad we did. Very nice server and very good food. What a great town-so glad we drove out of our way to check it out!

What an experience to stay in a hotel where all the famous western heroes once stayed. The history surrounds you along with beautiful bronzes and artwork. You truly feel like you have stepped back in time as you walk the halls where Jessie James , Bat Masterson, and Annie Oakley to name a few have walked. We had wonderful meals... More

Driven thru Cimarron, NM for 40 years and never hardly slowed down. Decided to stop this time and stay at the Historic St. James. I live a stones throw from Dodge City, "Queen of The Cowtowns".

The room was nice and roomy and clean. The bed was fine and the AC was MOST welcome. The courtyard that the room opened onto was lovely with wonderful hand painted murals on the walls. The breakfast voucher that provided up to $12 each toward breakfast was MOST welcome. But the food was just OK and the service was below... More

My family and I stayed here and it was worth the drive. The hotel is very old and has a lot of history to it, including old bullet holes in the ceiling from bar fights centuries ago! The staff is very friendly and know a lot about the area.

Our family of two parents and 4 kids stayed here while visiting our son who was working at Philmont. This is an old hotel with lots of history. The rooms are comfortable but have antique furnishings.
