“Great atmosphere but food and service are hit and miss”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

My red and green beef and chicken Sopapillas were quite delicious. The bison burger was over-cooked and very dry and the chicken quesadillas were mostly cheese. Staff were preoccupied with the dining room TV while a segment featuring the St James Hotel aired on the Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures show. I recognize Cimarron is a very small town and my expectations shouldn't be too high but there is much room for improvement here.

“St James Hotel”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

An outstanding experience with the hotel. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The drawbacks are that no rooms are rented on Sunday, and during our stay sleep came hard because of the ghost hunters that were there conducting investigations. Other than that, it is a beautiful hotel and a great experience. There is so much history there and so much to learn about the west and some of the previous guests. The New York Strip is outstanding.

“A step back in time”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Very igood food and service, the lunch specials represent good value too. Engaging staff, but the most interesting feature here is the hotel's displays of old west history, art, and nostalgic items. The bar is classic old west, with bullet holes still to be seen in the stamped metal ceilings. Definitely take a tour of the original hotel rooms and read the histories of the characters who stayed here!

“Good, basic food. Not fancy.”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

The service is good and the prices are ok. I had the prime rib which came rare, not medium rare as ordered. The taco salad was good, but not unusually so.

“This restored historic hotel is a wonderful place to visit and have a meal.”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We had a great dinner on Halloween and then watched the orb activity in haunted room 18 by way of two video cameras in that room. There was little activity until a female hotel employee sat in the room. Then orbs
came from all directions crossing the room.
The breakfast the next morning was outstanding. We had their two chili's on our eggs and it was very good.
