Stayed at a few places in this area. Basically nothing open off season on US 2 from Brevort to Gould City off season. Good rate, like the others said it's dated but clean and warm. And believe me it gets cold up there in January , February. Very nice and plan on stating there again. Can't see forking out over... More

We arrived at about 8pm with no reservation in late September. The room was clean and the right price. No grimy bathroom here (fixtures replaced, nothing old), and while the room was dated, it was clean, and decorated more carefully than any other hotel room I've been in. Beds comfortable and hotel quiet (again, off-season). A breakfast was the only... More

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...
