I stayed here through groupon deals for 4 nights in a fireplace king. It was lovely. The staff (esp Lisa and Shawn) were all very friendly and helpful, bar had a great selection of beers, breakfast was sufficient (nothing overblown, but still quite good), views gorgeous (get a room facing town). The room was very nice, comfy bed, much of... More

Very nice hotel with a rustic look. Did not get a chance to use the hot tun, gym or sauce a but they looked good. Stayed 1 night - nice happy hour with friendly people. Room was clean and comfortable - no issues. We went snowmobiling the next morning as that was close by.

We stayed over New Year's Eve with several other family members. The hotel rooms are fantastic - beds comfortable, beautiful views, clean with very modern mountain decor. We were able to gather in the lounge area which was wonderful. Daily happy hour from 4-6. For New Year's they had party favors and pizza. The view for the fireworks was fabulous!... More

This hotel is beautiful and very relaxing. The staff is always friendly and helpful. They have a great happy hour in their bar area with a lot of games. Free smores at night and a breakfast in the morning. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel is walking distance from "downtown" grand lake. We love staying here and snowboarding... More

When we checked in to the Gateway Inn, we couldn't help but notice the aloof attitude of the man who checked us in. We get it - it's a small town and we are outsiders. We are from a small town too in Colorado. However, when you work for this kind of a business, get over it. He was rude... More

We just returned from a nice weekend in Grand Lake/Grandby Ranch and stayed Fri-Sun at the Gateway Inn. I purchased the 2 nights via Groupon. Check in was fast and easy and all the staff we encountered throughout the weekend were all very polite. The room was nice and spacious and even had a small refrigerator. The beds were comfortable...

The right amount of rustic plus the right amount of comfort plus the right amount of hospitality equals just right. A wonderful place to come home to after an outing in one of America's gems - Rocky Mountain National Park.

We stayed 2 nights and loved it! The Inn was very welcoming and the staff were friendly. We enjoyed happy hour and the incredible views from the patio on our last night. We also twice took advantage of the hot tub and the great setting it was in. Next time we'll get a room with a balcony but we had... More

I recently made a reservation for this inn in Grand Lake, The staff was very polite and the happy hour was great. Free popcorn and very reasonably priced drinks. There was the opportunity for the use of the hot tub and sauna but we ran out of time. We were also offered smores at the firepit but due to the... More

My husband and I just spent a wonderful weekend get-away at the Gateway Inn and we will definitely return again and again! The rooms were cozy and clean; the atmosphere in the lounge was welcoming and family friendly . . . . they even had the supplies to make s'mores on the deck. Thank you Lisa for your warm and...
