I am a traveling nurse. When I took a contract at CMC I was very excited but worried about finding a place to stay that was nice and affordable. No worries here. This is a small family owned motel. Its not fancy but it is indeed well kept and clean. Because it is next to the hospital do not expect... More

We stayed here for four nights while in town for a family reunion. The entire staff is very friendly and accomodating. The property is not new, yet the room was totally comfortable and clean. The beds were very nice and the air conditioning was better than some five star hotels I have stayed in. Frig and microwave in the room... More

We stayed here and really liked it. It is very basic and clean. Didn't want to stay in the city due to cost. We drove to the Midway park and ride to go into the city. $5 at park and ride and ticket was $2.75 each way.

Love staying here. This was my second time. Stayed in the same room both times. Room has been updated since my first stay and looks great. Super clean and a great rate. Beds are very comfey. The Gateway Motel is close to Portillo's too. Great access to Cicero and the Toll-ways too.

So wish I could gush. Service here was that good. Unfortunately, room smelled a bit moldy and kicked off my allergies something fierce. Traffic was noisy. I read reviews about both so prepared myself w/a room freshener and "white noise" machine. Couldn't have slept without them. Loved the staff; sleeping was on the challenging side. TIP: no blow dryer. Bring... More

After a terrible night at another motel with an uncomfortable mattress that was way too old, we looked at Trip Advisor to find an alternative and found the Gateway. We loved the new mattress, friendly service and comfortable room. Yes, this is an older motel, but it is a good location for us to visit family. The street is noisy... More

Just would like to thank the owners of the motel for being very accomodating. We stayed there this past weekend and the room was very nice. The flat screen tv and cable, air conditioning, bed, and bath were clean. We will gladly stay there the next time we are here visiting our Chicago family.

In February 2012, I had to attend a training event which was being at the hospital which is located very near this motel. I needed to stay two nights. I chose this motel due to location and price. I was not disappointed. This motel is not fancy--and I have absolutely no problem with that. I wasn't looking for a spa... More
