Beautiful, peaceful, refreshing oasis! This historic hotel was just what we needed after a few days of hiking & camping in Big Bend. Beautiful rooms, gardens, courtyards, and pool. Our daughters loved the sand volleyball, horseshoes, life size chess/checkers across the street. Can't wait to come back!

We took a family trip to Big Bend National Park and stopped at the Gage Hotel! What a fantastic place! Rooms are very authentic and very clean! Staff was exceptional and very accommodating to us! With 4 grownups in our room, we needed more towels-no problem! In 2 minutes, we received more than we needed! So kind! The courtyard and...

This is a hotel with a lot of character and history - in a place where you would least expect it. I have been coming here for years, and every single time we stay here it get better. The rooms are first class, and decorated in a very eclectic West Texas fashion. The 12 Gage restaurant is next door, and...

A pricey but worthwhile experience in a tiny West Texas town. There are a few other places to stay in town, but if you're considering staying here there really isn't anything else for miles around in the same category. Historic, well-maintained building with manicured grounds (including the Gage Gardens across the street). Our experience was tainted due to an unexpected...

Beautiful, quaint, pricey hotel but with the most uncomfortable bed ever of all my travels both here in the USA and abroad. Mattress was so lumpy my husband and I could not find a comfortable spot in the bed and he can fall asleep anywhere. Also a humming noise all night which we could not determine its origin. The hotel...

Unexpected in Marathon Texas a quaint older hotel has stood the test of time. The Rooms were comfortable, the sheets were fabulous. A nice fireplace welcomed travelers in the lobby and a side room. Staff was accommodating and interactive making sure we were happy with this stay.

Really loved this hotel. The staff was very nice, the hotel was clean, and the town was perfect. They have an area to run in across the street at Gage Gardens. The room was very clean as well. This hotel takes a lot of pride in their history and for the town. Definitely recommend!

We hadn't been back to the Gage in years and were so pleased that it was even better than we remembered. We stayed in one of the rooms in Los Portales rather than the actual hotel and loved the rustic Mexican decor. It was a quiet mid -week visit but there were plenty of other people in the bar and...

We recently spent two nights at the Gage- when planning a Big Bend trip we first intended to stay at the lodge in the National Park but it was booked full, as I understand it often is. The next nearest choice was the Gage, and it turned out to be a delight. Our room was in the historic building, and...

This hotel is awesome. Service is fantastic, staff kind, restaurant tasty, and elegantly thematic of the environs. It also seems extra lovely because it is, as you know, in the middle of nowhere! We stayed here one night before a couple nights in Big Bend. It was a great respite on a long drive, and the juxtaposition of elegant rustic...
