Holy cow, this is the real deal. Authentic Old wild west bar and hotel. Imagine stopping for the night as you travel by stage coach on the Santa Fe trail.

The restaurant and bar here are great. Ghosts, old historic bar. On Sante Fe trail when it was actually being used.

My husband and I ate lunch at the St. James. The food was delicious, and the patio was an art gallery in itself. The service is good, but a little slow. We enjoyed all the history tied in with this very old hotel. It would be fun to stay in the hotel if we can visit Cimarron again. Don't miss... More

The Saint James Hotel is pure Americana. There is so much history and nostalgia in one site. From the time you step through the front door you are stepping into our past. The lobby is filled with "old west" stuff; it is like a mini museum. The rooms are unique. If available you can sleep in the same rooms as... More

We have eaten here several times over the years when traveling through Cimarron, and have always enjoyed the atmosphere. The waitress we had this past visit was just a delight and did a great job. The hotel/restaurant have done some remodeling and it shows very nicely. My husband had the burrito, and I had the enchiladas and both were very... More

I just had a burger, but it was very good. Fries were top-notch... But the best part: the history. Being in a place & walking through the same halls where , Jesse James, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, Annie Oakley & many other famous (and infamous) western icons walked was the highlight for me. This is a must-see for any history-lover...... More

Well located close by the covered market "les halles" in a nice environment with plenty bars and restaurants, this hotel was perfect to spend few days. Clean and basic rooms and bathroom, it's not the place you spend your day inside but was perfect to walk around an have nice places around for the evenings.

Was visiting Wagon Mound and ventured scenic north to Philmont and Cimarron. Per recommendation from family member, me and my companions stopped for lunch in this historic place. I had the Hanger Steak w/fries and asparagus. Plus, a cold Nut Brown IPA. Perfectly cooked and paired w/ the beer. Took a little while to stroll around the grounds and museum.... More

I've been here three times now, each before or after a trek in Philmont, which is where the place gets a good deal of business during the summer months. Atmosphere has always been fun, I watched the 2016 NBA Finals last time I was here and everyone was excited and having a good time (except they were all Warriors fans... More

We have eaten in the restaurant several times and the variety and quality of food is always excellent. For our most recent visit we also spent the night in the room Jesse James stayed in and we had a great experience. In addition to Jesse James, the list of famous people who stayed or frequented the saloon (which still has... More
