    Questions & AnswersAsk a question
    After inquiring at two motels in Marathon on the 7th of October and finding neither was under $120 (inc tax) for one person, and both places looking 'tired', I elected to move on to White River where I got a decent motel for $82. I am therefore convinced price fixing must be the rule at Marathon which is far enough between towns that travelers are "captured". I was shocked at the prices asked; and will make sure traveler friends avoid stopping at Marathon. And now, reading reviews, my gut feeling to move on was the right choice. I would like to know what justifies the high rates as opposed to Terrace Bay and White River.

    I believe they are both run by the same owner.
