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". THIS is history. Bullets holes still in the saloons tin ceiling. A register of the who's who of the rough and rowdy days of... More

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. The lobby makes you feel like you've stepped into an old western movie. It's rumored to be haunted and one room is kept locked... More

Really cool old hotel. Old West lobby, artifacts, pictures, stories, etc. Bar and restaurant adjoining Hotel Lobby, that was good too. You will like the feel of this place and it is clearly the top accommodation in Cimarrom (there ARE NOT very many hotel rooms in this little town and almost all of them are filled by Philmont visitors and...

Awesome atmosphere. The staff is excellent and the food is better. If you find yourself anywhere near Cimarron and have the time, definitely stop at the St. James. You won't regret it. Enjoy anything from pizza to fine steak in a serene, historic atmosphere.

Thank you for taking time to stop and visit us. Hopefully each time you drive past Cimarron you will be able to stop and see us, as we do have changes and new art displayed all the time. We are sorry to inform but we no longer have pizza but the resturant is still in full swing. More

While the hotel was interesting and quite historic, we only stopped by to dine. After 2.5 hrs we were done with lunch. Everything went wrong from the 30 min wait (not very crowded), to the food they were out of (didn't know until after we ordered it), to the incredible long wait for the food (simple Mexican food and chicken...

We are so very sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience while you were here. At times the resturant does not look busy but there are large groups dining which can cause a wait. It being our busy time of year we do tend to get overwhelmed, we do very much apologize for your visit here... More
