We spent two nights at the Gage while visiting Big Bend National Park. Enjoyed the astroturf across the street that had outdoor chess and checkers and the pool. Ate at 12 gage for both nights for dinner because there were no other options open in Marathon on Sun and Monday night. Ordered off the bar menu the second night and...

We were in Marathon for a guys hunting trip. We rented the Casita, out back, which slept three people nicely. The rooms were clean and the beds were damn comfortable. The food there is always excellent. Nice people in the bar, especially the locals. Considering there is nothing for a hundred miles, it's an Oasis! Don't miss the opportunity to...

Although we didn't stay at Gage Hotel, we did enjoy a couple of hours in the bar. Met some other travelers for nice conversation. Server was very good with recommending several local brews. Had some good appretizers as we enjoyed a beautiful afternoon in Marathon preparing for our trip to Big Bend.

Stayed overnight in the Gage Hotel on our way to Big Bend. Had always heard about the Gage Hotel, and how great it is. We were not disappointed! From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with the ambiance and courtesy of the Staff. We stayed in the hotel proper, Room #8. The hotel is decorated in 'Cowboy Chic'. Our...

Beautiful facility, gracious employes. My room was lovely and the bed very comfortable. There really is not anything in Marathon besides the hotel and their 12 Gage Restaurant. Enjoyed the beautifully appointed TV room off the lobby.

The gauge is I have storage hotel that has a good story behind it. It is in the small town of Marathon about an hour and a half away from Big Bend national Park. It is definitely worth a nights stay. It is a little pricey but it is a very nice historic hotel. There are no TVs in the...

Such a charming hotel with a great restaurant, bar and coffee shop attached. We booked last minute and stayed in a downstairs room in the original hotel building. Small but comfy room with a large shower. Friendly front desk staff. Would love to return and spend some time at the pool and check out the courtyard rooms.

We stayed in #25 in the courtyard over the weekend. I sure wish I had known about this hotel before. I can't say enough wonderful things about it. Perfect, beautiful, excellent food in 12 Gage Restaurant, etc. The landscaping is breathtaking. We will definitely be back!

The Gage is an oasis of comfort in an area without much in the way of nice accommodation and good service. We had a suite with a king bed and and a day bed and both beds were really comfortable, with nice mattresses and linens. The bathroom is spacious and comes with two fluffy white robes. The service and atmosphere...

We arrived for our two night stay at the Gage to learn it was spring break week in Texas and this normally quiet, elegant, adult hotel was filled to the brim with families and a lot of energetic children. Our pre-paid room at the Shepard house seemed to house a large group of (noisy) families. I walked backed to the...
