First, the negative reviews on here need some clarification. The Gage has several different types of properties. If I stayed in the original hotel, which I did the first time around, I wasn't too happy. The room was way too small, it was extremely hot, it was loud, etc.
The rooms in the courtyard are amazing and make my experience happy. So be sure to stay there.
I finally had a chance to recently stay at the Cibolo Creek Ranch. That was the last place in the hipster world of west Texas where I hadn't had a chance to stay. Cibolo was certainly very nice. But it made me realize what a great deal the Gage is for me. I love the food at the Gage. I can eat it whenever I want - not designated settings with other guests. Marathon has a great little breakfast place - Johnny B's, etc. Nothing going on in Marathon, but that's what makes it great. No McDonald's, no DQ, this is a cool town. Can't find something like this in Texas. The mountains in the background are awesome. Being 45 minutes away from Panther Junction in Big Bend is amazing.
The Gage's grounds are beyond incredible. The swimming pool in the summer is the best in Texas. Can't think of anywhere else in Texas where I can go swimming and see mountains in the background.
I love Marathon and Gage. So tired of Marfa and all that. Give me a relaxing trip to the Gage and hanging out around Marathon and Big Bend.
I do wish they have TVs. I don't normally watch TV. But when you're on a vacation, it's nice to be able to turn it on sometimes.
