It is historic and the owner has done a great job over the years. The staff was incredibly helpful and nice. There is a very nice lobby where in the morning they have free coffee, muffins, and fruit. There are some nice courtyards with firepits in the evenings to sit around and socialize. The V6 coffee bar serves nice but limited breakfast and good coffee. There is a bar and upscale restaurant. You can also use the fitness facilities down the street or walk in the very nice gardens. My one minor issue is that the doors are not very sturdy with only a little old dead bolt on them. Would be nice to have something a little stronger.

Third Visit, Still Lovely

It was nice to return to the Gage and find that everything is still wonderful. We stayed in a clean, quiet Los Portales room. I was worried that the extreme cold weather would make the room cold too, but not at all, it was just as warm as we wanted it to be. I agree, the room lighting can be challenging. Room decorating is fun, each room is different. Beautiful grounds, we love walking around the Gage and Marathon. We celebrated our anniversary with a great steak dinner at the 12 Gage restaurant (Prickly Pear Margaritas). Mini muffins and coffee were provided in the lobby in the morning. We grabbed a sandwich from V6 for on our way to Big Bend. We hope to return next year.

Disclosure: I didn't stay here. They were completely booked. But the ladies at the desk labored mightily for almost an hour making calls to find me space in a nearby hotel... during the first week of Texas Spring Break. Folks, it was a near thing. I ended up, much to my dismay, in a neighboring (by West Texas standards) town. But I can tell you that the effort these young women made for a guy who wasn't a guest - and wasn't going to be a guest that night - was nothing short of admirable. And if the guest rooms are anywhere near as classy as the lobby, this is a simply spectacular place.

On our last road trip to Houston so we decided to stay here. It was easy to make our reservations and they promptly answered our questions. Our room opened onto the courtyard and had many charming southwestern touches. The bed was comfortable, the room large and quiet. The pool was clean and refreshing.

Thank goodness for the Gage!

I was shocked that I couldn't find a place nearer Big Bend.....that was rated highly. I wondered how hard it would be to stay an hour from the National Park's visitor center, but it turned out fine. The road in is straight and fast. The Gage personnel were pleasant, the room small but clean and comfortable, the bathroom large and comfortable, water hot and steady. The hotel is historic and has lots of charm, the bar is small but full of cowboy character. The restaurant had great food and good staff. As we drove around Marathon....we believed we'd made the very best decision!
