Well, after checking rates at the Gage Hotel "just for fun", we went down the road to the "Marathon Motel".......and we are so glad we did!
What a beautiful property and such friendly hosts the staff and owner were.
If you are looking for a reasonable, clean, classic place to stay, this is it.
The rooms are set up mostly in cabin duplex style around a wonderful, landscaped courtyard area. Sure, this is an older place, but the updates and improvements made to the rooms are wonderful.
Now......people complain about the train.....well, Marathon is along the railroad tracks, just like most all of the other towns in west Texas. Deal with it people.....it's just a train.....Oh, and by the way, the Gage hotel is along the tracks too, so don't think for a minute that paying more is gonna make the train noise "go away". Honestly, we didn't even notice it until the next morning when the train came through town about 730am....use the provided earplugs if you want to.
Anyway, we will definitely stay here again next time we are in Marathon, on the way to Big Bend.....
