Stayed the night prior to visiting Big Bend Park for 3 days. What a great place!! Comfortable, clean, beautiful grounds, sparkling pool, friendly staff. Dinner in the restaurant was a treat! See the White Buffalo in the bar :-) Viewing the stars was amazing! Hope to visit the Spa at the Gage on next visit!

After visiting Big Bend NP stayed a night here in Marathon (pop. 450) on the way back home (via El Paso). Out in the middle of west Texas scrub, the hotel originally was built by a Vermont native in the hope of oil and gas development that never really materialized. Its main attraction now seems to be as one of... More

Just spent one night at The Gage and wish it had been a week - or more. A beautifully restored building with comfortable rooms and beautiful grounds. An elegant restaurant and patio with well-trained, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff and exceptional food. when we decided we'd rather eat dinner later and on the patio instead of inside, they were totally...

Although this hotel is a moderate distance from Big Bend it is worth the extra drive just to stay here. It was a holiday in itself with a beautiful setting and atmosphere. The restaurant was superb as were all the other amenities specially the pool and courtyard for sitting out under the stars and chatting to other sociable guests. The... More

A very clean room, comfortable beds and a great place to relax. The new staff was more than helpful in every way and the food at the restaurant was outstanding. me and my wife had a great weekend with family.

The Gage Hotel is a must stop for travelers to Big Bend. We stayed in a King room with fireplace and it was beautifully appointed in shades of turquoise and brown. The room is very comfortable and inviting. There is no TV, and that was nice. The restaurant was very nice. We ate there one night and had appetizers and... More

We loved our stay at the Gage Hotel and would love to go back. The grounds were lovely, the room was really nice and comfortable, and the restaurant was good. If you are touring the Big Bend area, then don't miss a stay at this hotel. It is a mini vacation all by itself. We stayed in one of the... More

It is fantastic to have a hotel of this standard in a small town like Marathon. The rooms are historic, so are darker than a modern hotel, but the outside courtyard was wonderful. Ate at the restaurant every night, and food was very good as well. Good location from Big Bend NP, but shame it wasn't slightly closer.

The Gage Hotel is unique and very nice. We really enjoyed our stay. It is vey relaxing. The pool is beautiful, very clean with many nice areas to sit or lay out in the sun. Our room was very comfortable. The courtyard outside the rooms is very inviting and it was fun to sit outside and visit with other guests.... More

Very nice old hotel in BF, Texas. This little secret makes a great weekend romantic get away. Great home base for visiting Big Bend. Rustic rooms and nice patio for spring time cocktails. Arrive early enough for dinner. The restaurant might be the best kept secret in all of West Texas. The wine list is a little lacking, but the... More
