We have stayed at this Inn for the last four years and this was our best stay ever. The staff was friendly, rooms are clean and they have added some extras that make the stay even more enjoyable. There was free live music in the evening, BBQ for sale (catered by a local company), fresh popcorn in the bar and... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way to Denver. The room was large with rustic wood furniture very fitting for just outside of Rocky Mt. National Park. It was very clean. Coffee and juice were available from 5-11am which was convenient and a self-serve continental breakfast was available in the bar area in the morning.... More

From check-in to check-out this hotel exceeded expectations. I honestly booked this stay online because the price and location were right and it didn't look scary. In person, the location and view was as promised and the atmosphere exceptional. There is a comfortable lounge just off the lobby and I was just in time for happy hour. The live music... More

Husband and I just returned from a three (3) day stay at Gateway Inn. We really liked the location and personnel. Personnel were very friendly and helpful. View was fantastic. The deck was a great place for relaxation. Many locals visit the bar so that says a lot for Gateway in my opinion. Definitely would stay at this location again.

Stayed here July 7, 2014. Our room had a king sized bed and a private balcony facing the east. The desk clerk was very kind and helpful. He pointed us to a great restaurant for dinner. After dinner we relaxed on the uncrowded balcony attached to the lounge. There are propane fire pits to keep you warm and adds a... More

This hotel is an incredible upscale hotel in a beer drinking. cigarette smoking town. The amenities are impeccable. we were there over the 4th of July, which is the craziest time to be there. The manager lady was a bit overwhelming, she wanted to direct everyone and everything. a little too helicoptering. Now I must admit, the place is upscale... More

We arrived exhausted from driving and before check in time. The very kind man at the desk had them get our room ready early while we waited on the outdoor deck and they allowed us to check in early. The decor was cute and kind of rustic. Our room was large and the bed was exceptionally soft with a cute... More

Stayed there Tuesday, 6/24, would highly recommend this place. First of all the place is beautiful, sits up high, has great views. It reminds me of a lodge/cabin in the woods. The beds, pillows were very comfortable and the shower was great. Every one employed there from the owner to the bartender were super nice and friendly. I felt like... More

Although we didn't stay here, we came to the happy hour in the bar. The prices were great (1/2 price beer and well drinks) with entertainment on Thursday nights and a great barbeque by Bare Bones BBQ. The pulled pork and brisket were fabulous and very reasonable. It was so much fun to see how people in this small community... More
