Stayed for one night on a cross-US bike trip and thought this was a lovely oasis in the middle of nowhere. I was I'm a room in the main building and loved the lack of a TV and the authentic and tasteful furnishing. The only draw back was the lack of a curtain in one alcove (although I stacked the...

The Gage Hotel in Marathon, Texas is a fantastic destination choice. We highly recommend staying in one of the Casitas. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is spectacular and the restaurant is award winning. The outdoor patio features full bar service, a great, relaxed dining menu, and live music. The staff is extremely helpful and they have an excellent brochure... More

We stayed at Gage, one of the Los Portales rooms, just this past week. While we were there, we saw Sam Smith and his entourage at the pool. We kept to ourselves and didn't wish to disturb his relaxation time, but we were all quite excited inwardly. The resort has a very laid back vibe, and we wanted to maintain... More

The rooms at the Gage are really spacious and comfortable, opening out to a very cool courtyard area. The pool is also great - very relaxed vibe and steps away from your room (wherever you are staying). The staff is incredibly courteous and friendly - responded to requests & arrived at our room w/in just a few minutes (great service).... More

Wow! Jaw dropped, eyes wide... 'The Gage' is divine. The pool crystal clear, huge pool towels- a magical escape from reality. Our room in the courtyard was modern day convenience meets the old west. Decorated with serious style and with the customer in mind. The spa where I chose an anti ageing facial, was given by the lovely, knowledgeable 'Hilly'-... More

Great little hotel. We didn't stay in the main hotel, but opted for Celaya House instead. What a perfect little getaway. An isolated small house which sleeps four. Just a few steps from all the main hotel facilities, but without having to endure any neighbours. Loved it. You still get a maid service as well. This place is 'rustic' -... More

If you go to the Gage even just to pass by, then you'll know how special it is. It is a little slice of heaven. Aside from being a green oasis in the desert, it just has a calming serene ambiance. You would not guess that a hotel in this area would have the quality restaurant onsite that it does.... More

The town that this hotel is in will make you wonder if you made a mistake when you arrive. But this hotel is awesome! We were part of a group of 11 and we all compared rooms. Each room is a little different and so pretty. The bathrooms are great! The hotel is an old historic hotel built during the... More

The hotel was as lovely as I remembered as a child. The staff was courteous and helpful, the rooms comfortable and the grounds relaxing. The White Buffalo Bar is wonderful and dinner at the 12 Gage is not to be missed. A must see on any tour of the Big Bend area!

On the higher price range, but well worth it! Mostly original structure built around 1920. Very clean, staff was extremely polite and accommodating. Loved having me and my service dog stay with them. Restaurant staff and food were also excellent. Room does not have a TV, which was great for me as I wanted a nice and quiet stay. Entire... More
