We stayed at The Gage only one night, last week, on our way to Big Bend. During these Covid times, we were a little early but were dying to get out somewhere. We were able to arrange a great stand alone casita with its own entrance, patio, and courtyard green space. It was the "Casa Jardin" and was across the road from the main hotel. But we felt "safe"during this particular world crisis. We were only able to get a dinner reservation in the 12 Gauge restaurant for 9.15 at night. Too late for us. We ordered off the same menu in the bar and took it back to our room. The chicken fried steak was so delicious. Try it for its light batter. The bar orders drinks inside, but you can quickly get out into the walled courtyard and enjoy your cocktails outside. Check in was easy and they had all the precautions set up so it was fast and seamless. the bed was comfy, the shower large and hot, but there is no mini bar/fridge in this room. If your plan is to have food supplies for your time the park, please make note of that. Be sure to stop into the lobby and say hello to Tito. He's adorable. We spent one lovely quiet night and left the next morning for the National Park.

My husband and I had a recent trip to Big Bend with college friends. We were fortunate enough to stay at the Gage Hotel and enjoyed their margaritas all weekend long. Special thank you to Virginia in Guest services for all her helpful tips! We will definitely return to the Gage Hotel.

Always look forward to a stay at the Gage on my West Texas trips. First time we stayed here was about 35 years ago, and since then I have probably visited 15 times or more. Rooms have always had a nice West Texas flare (I have stayed in all of the different parts of the Hotel with the exception of the Captain's House) and all have been well-maintained and very clean. The food at the restaurant (12 Gauge?) has always been outstanding, and usually makes the top one or two on my list of great meals every year. Service has been great. On my last trip, I was planning on one night in the Gage, but the campground in the Chisos Basin was completely full the night before my reservation at the Gage, so even though the online reservation showed full, I called and told them my story and asked if I could get in another night. They found something for me (a really nice room!). Looking forward to my next trip to Marathon and the Gage Hotel.

Amazing Anniversary Vacation!

WOW! Thank You Gage for an incredible anniversary experience!! After the long drive across Texas, our tired bodies were welcomed and made comfortable in this wonderful historic hotel. We found the staff so helpful and the concierge was friendly helping us to plan out our Big Bend day trips. Afterwards, the refreshing pool was sparkling and inviting. The fantastic margaritas hit the spot after hiking! We could not decide which was better the Prickly pear or regular margarita!!! We also argued over which meal was the best. The Brick Vault beer and barbecue was delicious--especially the green chili macaroni and cheese!! Yet, the open air restaurant was so delicious!!! If you are hungry-- try the chicken fried steak with jalapeƱo gravy!!! The charcuterie board was a work of art! I can't tell you how much we enjoyed the gorgeous Gage Gardens-- what a relaxing place to take a morning stroll. We are currently driving home and are so delighted with our experience. Thank you Gage for making it perfect!!

My wife and 2 kids decided to take a quick road trip to West Texas. We were overwhelmed to find this gem in a small town of Marathon, Texas. We were fortunate to find a reservation last minute. We stayed in the Celaya House that is perfect for families! The front desk was very friendly upon check in and informative. The concierge reached out to us before arriving offering to make us a personalized itinerary. She provided us a family friendly itinerary in Big Bend with the trails we should check out and activities that our kids would enjoy. I was super impressed! We dined at the Brick Vault BBQ & Brewery the first night which was some of the best bbq we ever had.. We ate at the 12 Gage our final night and it did not disappoint. My wife had the filet and I had the chicken fried steak which was a very generous portion. It was an unexpected but sweet surprise to find this place. Highly recommend!
