Adequate, but Disappointing
I enjoy staying in places that are a little off the beaten path. This RV park is on the road to Big Bend National Park. Marathon is a tiny town, so be prepared for limited shopping, etc. The Marathon Motel and RV Park is an interesting place. Check out the pictures that are posted. It has a very pretty courtyard area. The cabins look well maintained, as does the park in general. Someone built this place with love and thoughtfulness. Unfortunately, the RV area appears to be an afterthought and is a little less attractive. Again, check out the pictures. They simply pulled utilities out into an adjacent field, and graveled it. The pads are not all that level. The wifi works fine. The listed rates are $35 a night or $140 for a week. So, it is definitely cheaper to stay for a while. The $20 rate is based on a one week stay.
our favorite little spot in texas
We love Marathon, and the Marathon Motel & RV.
Here's our review..check our website, www.wanderingairstream.com for full photos of the park!
here's the link..
From the moment we pulled into town we knew it was a special place.
The views are spectacular… pop over here and check out the sunsets.
The M.M.&RV gets a full 8 paw rating.
The grounds are very nice and come with extras…stocked fireplace, large fire pits scattered on the property,benches facing the various views, and everything is extremely well maintained.
The bathroom was one single for men, one for women,
each were large, with a wall heater for chilly mornings.
Although there was only one, we never went at any time and had to wait.Lots of people (as we are finding everywhere) don’t use them at all.
The town of Marathon is small, one main street, a definite feeling of community.The towns people we encountered were all very friendly.
The main busy months are April-August with Christmas and Thanksgiving filling up as well.We visited neighboring towns Alpine & Marfa and enjoyed both but Marathon was our favorite.Many factors played into this but without hesitation, the M.M.&RV was a huge reason.
We could have stayed here for much longer but eddie needed work done…and the one thing they don’t have is places for parts.No Lowes, Home Depot, Wal-Mart… nada.
The other thing we noticed and very much enjoyed is that all along 90 West,and within these towns, no billboards, no signs at all really to spoil the view.
We will miss this place, it will stay with us in a way that other places will fade away,and we will most definitely go back.If you get a chance, make sure to stop in….especially if you can just sit back and enjoy the view without needing to go and do.
You’re going to love it.
