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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Everyone knows about the Gage, and it's really just as cool as all the buzz (BTW, I've been there 5 times since '93 and I'm an Eastern snob about such things). So, what can I say that's different? Well, first off, it can, in fact, be your home base to visit the BB region - but be warned you gotta... More

When you come to Marathon, TX, it is generally to stay at the Gage Hotel. There's not much else there to come for. Spending a night at the Gage is more like an experience than simply a night's stay at some hotel. The old fashioned opulence takes you back in time. You half expect to see horses, locomotives, parasols, and... More
