Older style motel. Kept clean and there is a new fridge so that's convenient. I was most impressed that there was WiFi in my room, and it worked well. Overall, if you are looking to cut cost on a holiday (which I was), it is a good option. Just don't expect luxury. Never tried their breakfast but I heard one... More

Made reservations in advance for a 2 day fishing trip my son had given me for Xmas present. Cost for the room with 2 queen beds came to $200.00 with taxes for 2 nights. When we opened the door to our room, the smell was the first thing to greet us. Not fresh, but damp or musty. We left the... More

We stayed here on a visit years ago and came back. This is not 5-star, but a quality sleep. Bed quality, shower, reading lights are all that they should be. There were internet connection problems in the room (but not the office or breakfast room) but they are working on upgrading. The family that owns and runs it is extremely... More

I was on a little road trip with a friend in the Gananoque/Kingston, On. area and came across the Gateway Motel. The owner gave us the keys to 2 rooms just so we could check them out before renting one. Room 25 was o.k. then we went into room 26......wow...very nice, very large & very bright room and the bathroom... More

The host seems a fine person. He is desk clerk, breakfast supervisor, maintenance, and may be the sole cleaner. Nice man... waaay too much to do. The place needs a feminine touch and needs somebody who can see dirt. The rooms are of extremely uneven quality. We moved from one extremely unclean one with streaks on the walls to a... More

Rooms had all been repainted. New carpeting. New granite bathrooms. New comfortable bedding. Décor minimal but so fresh and clean. A great nights sleep for this price! I wil go again when I am in Gananoque.

Very pleasant and helpful reception [son of the family?]. We were upgraded to newly decorated room, spacious, clean with nice sylvan view from back window. Obviously some renovation is underway. The shower was a thunderbox! Breakfast was a bonus for what we paid, and was adequate continental - tea/coffee, cereal, fruit juice, toast, croissant and the ubiquitous bagels and muffins.... More

Older motel but clean and well kept motel in a most pictures city in the 1000 Island area.We needed a place to stop over night as we were traveling to eastern Canada. We were apprehensive about what the conditions would be because of the lower price, but were very pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious clean and fresh smelling. We... More
