Certificate of Excellence
Get into the "spirit" of the Old West at the Express St. James Hotel. Relax in a room where frontier legends stayed but beware, some of our "guests" have never checked out. For those seeking less excitement stay in the modern annex side. Guests can choose from a variety of entrees in the restaurant complimented by a drink in the Bar.

Stopped by this hotel for a look around and lunch. Had a great bison burger and fries. Had the chance to look around at all the historical pieces that were displayed around the premises. Lot's of old west history here.
