Marathon Motel & RV Park, Marathon TX

Stay Date:  February 2009
Our Rating:  GOOD – 7
Let's face it - if you want to visit Big Bend with a full hookup site and services Marathon is the only choice; so it's a good thing this park is very nice. We were given the last space available, which was apparently a former workamper site - no pad, picnic table, and only gravel/dirt which was not very level. The standard 50A sites were pull-thru, also dirt/gravel without pads. The free cable TV and WiFi worked well, and Verizon service was good for the cell and Aircard. There is a beautifully landscaped courtyard and fireplace and the owners are exceptionally friendly. Marathon is an interesting little town; a couple of good restaurants, and the Gage Hotel is worth a visit. We'd stay here again. Marathon Motel & RV Park
