“cowboy campfires in the adobe desert”

Established in 1940 and recently renovated, the Marathon Motel sits on 10 acres with ten newly decorated rooms divided among four duplex cabins. Here guests can relax in the new adobe-walled courtyard with flowering native plants, fireplace, fountain, and spectacular views of the mountains and starry skies. The true beauty of this campground, RV park and motel though lies in the adobe courtyard, the centerpiece of which is a fireplace where the motel's owners provide as much wood as you can burn, often lighting the fire for you and any other guests interested in pulling back in rocking chairs and telling their particular tale of how they arrived in this sleepy little town miles and miles from just about anywhere. The owners also run a pirate radio station, as few "real" stations manage to ride the airwaves this far into the desert, and often allow longer term guests who establish a relationship with them to program shows and permanently add their mark to the town's music.  Whether you pull up with your own rig, feel like setting up a tent, or stay in one of the quaint little rooms, the motel is the perfect setting for affordable accommodation in town, and an easy one mile walk into town itself.  Stay for more than a couple of days and you'll be sure to get in tight with the owners, who will be your first insider glimpse at how Marathon works, who to talk to, what to see, and of course, you're already set with where to stay.
