We seriously considered changing our itinerary so we could stay here longer. The rooms are lovingly furnished, the courtyard area is great for relaxing, and the restaurant was fabulous. (Best steak we ate in Texas, and we tried a few!) We started off in one of the smallest rooms, which has a sink but its toilet and shower are shared...

My husband and I stayed just 1 night at The Gage and we can't wait to return! What a beautiful property; an oasis in the middle of nowhere. We were looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway, and that was exactly what we got! We stayed in the Los Portales, room 29, which has its own private side patio. We will...

This is a wonderful gem in Marathon, Tx. A beautiful property and very well-maintained. Not much to do in town, but there are a couple of cute cafes close to the hotel - and the hotel does have a restaurant. We had dinner there and what we ordered was quite good. I had the nachos (we were in the bar...

Spent one night on our way to Big Bend. Pricey for the area, but it did not disappoint! Our room in the Los Portales section was totally decked out in Texas chic decor. Such attention to detail. The rough hewn timbered ceilings trimmed with rope and the slate rain fixture walk in shower. Who would expect such luxury in the...

We stayed 3 nights in the historic building - the 1st floor king room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Since the building dates back to the 1930s, the floors do creak (we could hear guests on the 2nd floor) and there was considerable noise from the lobby and in the morning as housekeeping and other staff came in and out...

Nice hotel with very Texas themed decor. Only show in town when it comes to places to stay in Marathon. The room was very clean and in keeping with our expectations from other reviews. We dined in the 12 Gage restaurant (part of the hotel) and found the waiting staff to be unattentive and rude at times; however this was...

We had never been to Big Bend although we had been close. Enough of our friends who had told us to go in the spring to see the bluebonnets set against a gorgeous space. So after researching the hotels in the area, we settled in the Gage in Marathon. We were extra excited because after we booked, the hotel was...

My son and I stayed in one of the courtyard rooms. Its was gorgeous! Every detail and the fireplace is charming. The hotel is full of amazing details and Texas charm. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We were late arrivals (after 8 PM) they kept the kitchen open just to make sure we had something to eat. Its...

I have been visiting the Gage off and on for 30 years, and it has changed a lot in that time. It is always comfortable, relaxing, and idiosyncratically rustic. The hotel staff go out of their way to accommodate our needs, from breakfast to special event ice-breakers the food is consistently excellent, special dietary needs are catered for and the...

Have been to Marfa, Fort Davis, Terlingua and now can add Marathon to the list! This is basically the only thing in this remote gorgeous west Texas town. The resort sits over a block long and even has a garden separate casitas and gym across the railroad tracks. Very tastefully decorated - west Texas with lovely pool, popular bar and...
