Spend Some Time in the Old West
The St. James Hotel in Cimarron, New Mexico offers unrivaled peace and serenity today, but it wasn't always that way. "Cimarron" is Spanish for wild or unruly and the Village of Cimarron lived up to that description. Situated on the Santa Fe Trail, Cimarron attracted a variety of colorful characters in the Old West. From lawmen to outlaws and everyone in between, the fine food and atmosphere at the original St. James Hotel was, at one time or another, home to them all. Many are said to visit even today. Such Old West notables as The Earp brothers stopped here on their way to Tombstone. Buffalo Bill Cody was a frequent guest and friend of the owners, and outlaws Frank James and Billy the Kid took their rest here.

The old Hotel has 12 restored rooms where guests can enjoy the simple but elegant ease of 19th Century furnishings. Or choose the two-story annex, to enjoy all the comfort and conveniences of these modern times. Accommodations include a variety of singles, doubles, and family rooms with private or shared baths.
