  • Gage Hotel, 101 Highway 90 West, +1 432-386-4205, toll-free: +1-800-884-GAGE (4243), fax: +1 432-386-4510, . Check-in: 4PM, check-out: 11AM. Built in the 1920s by cattle tycoon Alfred Gage so he would have a place to stay while overseeing his interests in the area. The hotel has since been carefully restored and now includes a cafe and a spa. Rooms in the original building (with or without private bath) are the biggest bargain; those in the Los Portales annex and in the 3 well-appointed houses nearby offer more modern trappings without sacrificing the West Texas mood. $90-$381.
