The room with a king size bed and balcony was very clean and comfy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. This was our first visit to Grand Lake area and it didn't disappoint. The hotel is located very close to the lake and 2 miles away from nordic center (for skiing/tubing in the winter time). We stayed at the... More

We stayed one night so that we could drive in to Rocky Mountain National Park. The room with a king size bed was very clean and comfy. Paid a little extra for room with balcony over looking lake and mountain and it was worth it. Nice relaxing stay.

I just came back yesterday from Gateway Inn and I loved it. The two ladies in the front are so nice friendly and so helpful. We got a room with a balcony and the views of the lakes where amazing. It was so relaxing. The breakfast and the free smores at night time was a big plus. The guy at... More

We just got back from 3 days at the Gateway Inn. It was our second stay and we look forward to returning in April. Everything was clean, nice size rooms and a great location. The ladies at check in were both very efficient and gracious. Shawn, at the bar, is friendly and serves a good beer. He's pretty much in... More

Nice, clean, well run hotel in Grand Lake. Hot tub, exercise room, game area, very large deck that overlooks the town. Happy hour for adults and smore's for the kids. What Smore could you ask for? I have to add four words to make the minimum.

I only stayed one night....don't stay in room 106. The window in our room backed up to the parking so it was noisy while we were trying to sleep. You hear the beep beep sound of trucks backing up. I told my husband to get a room over the lake but I guess they were sold out. We stayed January... More

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
