Well... the Gage is famous so we decided we had to try to get a room here. Well, we got a house that the Gage owns. The Wedin House. It was built in the 1920s and has been recently redone in a modern ranch style. Three bedrooms and two baths. It had a huge with rockers and comfy chairs to sit out and look at the stars!

The Gage Hotel is an historic hotel. The hotel has no elevator so you will have to walk upstairs to your room if staying in the hotel. They have other accommodations that are more user friendly. We stayed in one of the 20 Los Portales rooms which has a lovely courtyard. The room was very comfortable. However, if you are mobility challenged these rooms are quite a walk back to the Hotel, restaurant and bar. The restaurant and bar employees are just delightful and fun. We truly enjoyed that part of our stay.

I had no idea that the words rustic and luxury go together, but they do here. You must experience it to understand this. We had a great 4 day getaway from the world. One of the most comfortable beds that I've slept on. The courtyard outside our room was amazing...the fountain, birds, clouds, visiting with other on their porches. The pool is nicely done and great place to relax. Other sitting areas and the fire pit on the property are other great places to relax. The bar and restaurant not just convenient, but excellent in every way. It was very hard to leave and we look forward to a return visit.

Relaxing, old charm

Incredible nice hotel (no TV in the rooms), with "old" furniture; and great lobby. You can see, feel the traditions and stories that enfolded there. Awesome place to stay a night (or two) when visiting Big Bend National Park.

It's the town that's so depressing

The Gage Hotel is definitely the highlight of this tiny, dusty, windswept whistle-stop of a town. The public space in the lobby is charming and the rocking chairs on the front porch offer a calm respite from the hot day when the sun finally goes down. There is a nice pool and a pretty courtyard surrounded by ground-floor rooms. Parts of the landscaping were unkempt and unattractive, however. In the hotel itself, our room was up a short flight of stairs (no elevator) at the end of the hall on the corner next to the fire escape, which was open for people to go in or out 24/7. (Despite that, our room was quiet at night.) The bed was comfortable, the shower was large and there was a shelf to actually hold your toiletries, which several other historic hotels lacked. No TV. The bar was overwhelmed on a Thursday night and the margaritas were underwhelming. The food and service in the restaurant, however, were excellent. (Fried oyster nachos!) We drove by the Marathon botanical garden on our way out of town and, although a beautiful oasis in the desert, it almost makes you feel like they used up all the water in town just for that green space!
