I was married at the Gage and have stayed there every year on our anniversary since. The Gage is one of those special places that gets under your skin, and draws you back. The staff are wonderful, the grounds are beautiful and rustic, and the sunsets/sunrises are as good as I’ve seen anywhere in the world (and I’ve traveled the world a fair amount). If you go, I’d highly recommend an afternoon drink at the White Buffalo bar, followed by a walk through the Gage Gardens. You never know what kind of critters you’ll see at the Gardens, but you’ll never forget the beauty, rawness, and friendliness of folks in far West Texas.

Super cool old hotel experience!

This is a gorgeous hotel in a cute tiny town. Rooms are great and pool is great as well. Nice restaurant attached and cool bar separated from the restaurant called the White Buffalo Saloon because it has a giant stuffed white buffalo on the wall. The stars were spectacular after dark and the ghost lore added a little fun to the experience as well, although no one working there had ever seen anything. Apparently this is the second most haunted hotel in Texas, but sort of glad I didn’t have THAT kind of night! I truly enjoyed this experience as I love old architecture and places that try to keep to that history.

This hotel has been on my bucket list for quite some time now but it is hard to get a reservation for a room with two double beds and a private bath on the ground floor. Well, I recently scored such a room for an overnight stay. Our room was in the Los Portales courtyard. There are a dozen or so rooms all on the ground floor and surrounding a beautifully landscaped courtyard. It's a very relaxed setting and just steps away from your vehicle which makes managing your luggage a breeze. The room décor is west Texas and old mission Mexico. There is also a large sink and vanity area and a huge walk in shower complete with bath robes. In spite of the fact that our room was next to the only highway in town, the thick adobe walls make the room cool and quiet. The ac was very efficient and the beds very comfortable. In short... a very memorable time.

Good hotel but the staff could do better

Very nice hotel with a feeling of « True West ». Decoration is beautiful. Rooms are really confortable. The pool is great. But the staff is not very friendly. And my room was next to the front desk. I had to ask the staff to stop talking loudly in the evening, while people are supposed to sleep. Same thing in the morning with a lot of noise in the front desk area.

During our stay, my wife and I decided that the Gage Hotel is the perfect getaway for us. The location is somewhat remote, which is an advantage. Little traffic interrupts the quietude of Marathon. Nights are very quiet. Rooms do not have televisions, but we quickly adjusted. We were able to catch the news on the TV in the lobby sitting area. I reserved our room in Los Portales which was a beautiful courtyard. The room was spacious and comfortably furnished. We appreciated the walk in shower. A violent storm bombarded Marathon with large hail and downpours during the evening of our first night. Our room flooded. Staff were most empathetic and accommodating by helping us move to another room. Throughout our stay we appreciated the helpful, pleasant staff. The 12 Gage was an excellent restaurant, but did not serve breakfast. Counter service for breakfast was available at the V6 Coffee Bar.
