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

OK, in Marathon, there aren't a lot of choices for hotels. Basically, there is one, the Gage. We had driven all day on our way to Big Bend National Park and we had already made reservations. We arrived in the late afternoon and did a quick tour of Marathon, which took about 8 minutes and then checked in at the... More

We would add this to our greatest experience. The quiet beautiful courtyard offered an ambiance that could not be equaled. The Spanish Villa and the room's decor gives you the pleasant sense of stepping back in time with today's conveniences with a swimming pool and the opportunity to have a fireside chat in one of the courtyards. A nature walking... More

We have stayed here three times. Twice in bigger rooms that were added on and once in the original building. The rustic feel of tbe place with the taste of elegance makes this place a hit. Fine dining in the resturant, gardens across and dkwn the street, nearby shops, make fkr a great break from the spartan landscape. Book it... More

Beautiful and comfortable accommodations in "Los Portales" section. The bathroom is really lovely and the room was very clean. Highly recommend eating dinner at the 12 Gage- wonderful meal and exceptional service.
