Our experience here was good. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. It is quite outdated as I felt as though I had walked into my grammas apartment in 1975. We were the only ones there so it was very quiet and the view is spectacular. The price is a little high for what you get but reasonable for... More

Keyhwood: I am really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am glad you enjoyed the use of the WIFI and Large TV. Our fire pit area was not quite up to snuff, but i am glad it worked out well for you both. I do hope we will see you both once again. Anne Cameron/Gateway Inn. More

I recently had the misfortune of staying at The Gateway Motor Inn. Right from the offset my impressions were not good. It is a run down property that clearly has had no financial input for a long time. The room I was staying in was absolutely disgusting. Everything was old, my sheets were dirty and there were no phones in... More

We spent a week at the Gateway. Nice family ran inn with clean, comfortable rooms at great value. Evening camp fires with roasted hot dogs at the fire pit were relaxing and fun. This was a great place to stay. We made day trips into the mountains and surrounding area and returned evenings to rest and recharge. Brian and Courtney... More

Thank you for staying with us. We work very hard to keep our guests happy and love when we meet new guests and are able to share our local secrets and knowledge of the area. Our evening fires around the fire pit give everyone an opportunity to share the experiences of the day and get to know each other. We... More

The owners were great to work with. The area had just been under flooded conditions (not at the hotel) in town. So there was a boil water area wide. They brought me lots of water, and a fan due to the way higher than normal temps. The room was very clean and nice.

We're happy to see that although nature did not provide for much fun in our area at that time, you still had a good stay with us. We're always happy to show up with some bottles of water or a fan. We hope you can make it back now that most of our area is fixed and normal again. Thank... More

We enjoyed our stay at this motel. The room was clean and comfortable and the owners were very nice and accommodating. There are extras there such as a group fire pit and picnic tables. There are also cabins there. The views of the mountains were great and the prices were very reasonable.

We were on a holiday of a lifetime across Canada, had booked it all a year ago. We arrived at Gateway Inn around 19.00 hrs, as soon as we stopped the car knew this was a mistake.The photos on the web site are taken very cleverly and I think give a false illusion to the place. The busy/noisy dual carriageway... More

We have travelled extensively throughout North America and have stayed in many different types of accommodations. We found the Gateway Motel in Canmore to be very unique with all of the requirements for a good nights sleep to be very comfortable as well as very clean. Mattresses and bedding were near new as well as fresh linens for bedding. The... More
