This motel is cleaner than most private homes, lovingly preserved to it's period, and capably owned by a very kind couple. After a weary day of travel and beginning to feel like Joseph and Mary, my fiancee and I booked into the nightmare dump down the street from the Gateway (tip: do not stay at Zellar's for any reason; you'd...

We stopped in Newberry for the evening and had read the reviews for the Gateway motel. This was the nicest and cleanest Vintage motel I have ever stayed in. The owner greeted us and was super nice.The rooms were outstanding. Plus if you like to read each room has a small bookshelf full of great books. What a great touch.I... More

Beautiful place to stay. close to the river and lots of places to see...very helpful to you..the rooms are always clean. the best part is talking to the owner about his daughter that is racing all around the U.P. By now she's got to be in college...

not all that much to choose from, its relatively clean, location is good. Just don't drink the water. You get what you pay for. The beds were ok. Check out knollwood inn, just a little down the road. !

Owner was not terribly friendly, but the room was fairly priced, and clean. Not real pet friendly, but not charged extra and he let my pup stay, but told us to not leave her in the room, which we wouldn't do anyway, for more than one reason. But, it was a decent place to stay, and nominally priced.

Very nice older facility in superb condition, hospital clean, nice people and reasonable price. What else is there to say. We were lucky to find this place and Tripadvisor helped. We would be happy to stay there again.

This place is clean, however it really needs some basic updating. Pretty thin walls, which cannot be helped. Drain in sink in need of plunging or drano or something. A coffee maker would be so nice, instead of having to get dressed to go to office, and hope there is some coffee left. The price of the room is pretty... More

We found this motel on trip advisor. The reviews looked good and we decided to make the Gateway Motel a stop over on our trip. I loved all the vintage knotty pine paneling and there are wood carvings on the exterior between each unit. It was clean and quiet and the beds were quite comfortable. An excellent value for your...

This could be a 3+ as it was clean but small. Maybe a 4 if everyone's expectations for Upper Michigan are like mine and I don't mean that in a bad way. I love it up there. Gateway is also very dog friendly. Remember we are in Upper Michigan where large cities are not the norm, hence big hotels may... More

We checked out the reviews and stayed here one night in June 2013. While dated, the motel is clean, affordable and quiet. If we had wanted the latest decor, we could have stayed at the Comfort Inn where the price was $50 more. We appreciated the cable channels, the desk and high speed Wi-Fi that worked flawlessly. Nearby is Tahquahmenon... More
