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

My wife and I booked the room through Groupon, so we got the room for under $70 a night. The room was nothing special, but it did the job. Our room did have a nice view from the small balcony, and the views from the hotel balcony were excellent. My wife enjoyed the complimentary s'mores. The only knock on the... More

Thank you for your review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay and liked the S'mores. Our complimentary breakfast is all that we can do in the small space we have but at least it is a good jump start to the day. Hope you stay with us again. Thanks, again for taking the time to write a review! More

We stayed at the Gateway in 2 years ago and I still think about the lovely time we had there. We reserved a room with a bunk bed and double bed which was perfect for our family of four. The decor was unique and fit the area very well. The location was just about as close to Rocky Mountain NP... More

The furnishings are just what you might expect from a motel near a national park--lots of wood furniture and outdoorsy decorations in the bar/lounge area. That carries over to the individual rooms. Our room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the pillows were excellent. We faced the parking lot but weren't too concerned since we didn't spend much time... More

Celebrated Mom & Dad's 60th Wedding Anniversary tonight. A most amazing and wonderful dinner. Food was excellent, service was perfect. It was a great family get together. Then stayed to listen to David Grover play in the lounge. A PERFECT night!!
