          My husband and I take a lot of "weekend getaways" and had always wanted to spend a night in Marathon. With only a few choices of local accomodations, we decided to stay at the Marathon Motel. It was very reasonably priced at $95 a night...More

          This small motel and campground is a great surprise. The small duplex motel rooms are clean and have a very comfortable porch. There is a fire pit and grill available to use and is a pleasant place to hang out during your stay.

          I think they are, as I saw several people walking their dogs, but they may have been in the RV part. You may want to call the motel and ask them.

          I would advise you updating the information on tripadvisor to expand your listing to include the motel and rv park separately. It was hard to find you, but a pleasant surprise!
