I’ve watched this hotel grow and improve over the years and these new owners are fantastic. They are friendly, polite, and so helpful! They have put so much time and effort into improving and updating their motel. I prefer smaller, family-run establishments like this over those big chain corporate places... so this one appeals to me! If you want a... More

Great location at a reasonable price. Clean and spacious room with fridge, microwave and fast wifi. Breakfast was excellent - not cooked but good quality. Would highly recommend this place. There is a lovely but malnourished cat with gorgeous blue eyes wondering about that is possibly astray but friendly, please feed him!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It was so nice to have you stay here with us. In regards to your concern about the kitty. He prefers to be outside in the summer (can't convince him otherwise) and he loves to cuddle and stay inside during cold months. He eats like a horse but he is older and... More

I have traveled through Colorado for the past five summers. I have stayed in multiple big chain motels and hotels not worth writing about. However, I do have to mention Gateway Lodge because of the great and friendly service provided by the owners Anna and Marcin. I feel bad because I should have left this review 5 years ago, but...

I called the Gateway Lodge directly to make my reservation and spoke with a woman who is one of the owners (a young couple own and manage the hotel) and was pleasantly surprised by her friendliness and knowledge of the area. This is an older facility which has been updated and improved significantly since the new owners took over. It... More

Revamped, repainted, refurnished with new management (which is what pulled me in). Very friendly, helpful staff/management. I liked staying in the middle of town within walking distance of all the mom-and-pop shopping and restaurants. I was concerned about the noise level on the main drag, Railroad Ave, but I slept with both windows open on a Saturday night without a... More

Since I travel to Rifle every weekend, I thought to stay overnight once for a change. I found this little gem through booking.com. I chose it for location and price.

The four of us were on a trip through Colorado and Utah and needed a place to stay in that part of Colorado for the night. We searched on the internet and on Trip Advisor and decided that the Winchester looked to be the place for us. It turned out to be exactly what we wanted. It was very clean,... More

It's newly redecorated, stylish, clean and comfortable. The owners were wonderful and friendly. One disclaimer: don't count on the free breakfast for any nutrition. Its offerings are pretty weak, but overall stay is a great value.
