We stayed at Gage, one of the Los Portales rooms, just this past week. While we were there, we saw Sam Smith and his entourage at the pool. We kept to ourselves and didn't wish to disturb his relaxation time, but we were all quite excited inwardly. The resort has a very laid back vibe, and we wanted to maintain...

The rooms at the Gage are really spacious and comfortable, opening out to a very cool courtyard area. The pool is also great - very relaxed vibe and steps away from your room (wherever you are staying). The staff is incredibly courteous and friendly - responded to requests & arrived at our room w/in just a few minutes (great service)....

Wow! Jaw dropped, eyes wide... 'The Gage' is divine. The pool crystal clear, huge pool towels- a magical escape from reality. Our room in the courtyard was modern day convenience meets the old west. Decorated with serious style and with the customer in mind. The spa where I chose an anti ageing facial, was given by the lovely, knowledgeable 'Hilly'-...

Great little hotel. We didn't stay in the main hotel, but opted for Celaya House instead. What a perfect little getaway. An isolated small house which sleeps four. Just a few steps from all the main hotel facilities, but without having to endure any neighbours. Loved it. You still get a maid service as well. This place is 'rustic' -...

If you go to the Gage even just to pass by, then you'll know how special it is. It is a little slice of heaven. Aside from being a green oasis in the desert, it just has a calming serene ambiance. You would not guess that a hotel in this area would have the quality restaurant onsite that it does....

The town that this hotel is in will make you wonder if you made a mistake when you arrive. But this hotel is awesome! We were part of a group of 11 and we all compared rooms. Each room is a little different and so pretty. The bathrooms are great! The hotel is an old historic hotel built during the...

The hotel was as lovely as I remembered as a child. The staff was courteous and helpful, the rooms comfortable and the grounds relaxing. The White Buffalo Bar is wonderful and dinner at the 12 Gage is not to be missed. A must see on any tour of the Big Bend area!

On the higher price range, but well worth it! Mostly original structure built around 1920. Very clean, staff was extremely polite and accommodating. Loved having me and my service dog stay with them. Restaurant staff and food were also excellent. Room does not have a TV, which was great for me as I wanted a nice and quiet stay. Entire...

OK, in Marathon, there aren't a lot of choices for hotels. Basically, there is one, the Gage. We had driven all day on our way to Big Bend National Park and we had already made reservations. We arrived in the late afternoon and did a quick tour of Marathon, which took about 8 minutes and then checked in at the...

We would add this to our greatest experience. The quiet beautiful courtyard offered an ambiance that could not be equaled. The Spanish Villa and the room's decor gives you the pleasant sense of stepping back in time with today's conveniences with a swimming pool and the opportunity to have a fireside chat in one of the courtyards. A nature walking...
