Please avoid this "motel" at all cost! The deadbolt on the door did not work and there is no safety chain to protect you in case someone tries to enter. This "dicey" motel does not have electronic keycard locks and only God knows how many of the old fashioned keys are out there which might enable uninvited guests to enter... More

Non smoking room yet smelled horribly of cigs. Crack addicts coming and going litterally all night. 2x2 ft. Hole above the shower. Deadbolt doesnt work...air conditioner cover missing. Used bandaids under the bed. Static on every channel. Litterally the worst hotel Ive ever been in. Do not bring kids here... this seems like a hotel for homeless people and crackheads...... More

I stayed in this motel with my sister and I wouldn't highly recommend it. It is old which is fine but it is in need of renovations BADLY! The rooms were large enough but the carpet was dirty and very worn. We were on the main level and when people went up the stairs to the second level it was... More

This motel is a very well known motel for people who in and out of jail. It is cheap, but there is a good reason for that. If you are traveling through town you DO NOT want to stay here. The only reason I am making this review is because I would appreciate someone giving me a heads up if... More

Stayed there when in town for a medical procedure. Was charged $33.19 with tax. AWESOME RATE - Comfortable Beds (really all that mattered to us). So, we had follow up appointments 2 weeks later, and made reservation before checkout for the SAME ROOM (To ensure good beds/pillows). When we arrived - my SAME ROOM was NOT available and they charged... More

Judging from the other reviews, I am not sure if I had just the bad luck of the draw or if this motel is really horrible. First the good: the price is actually under $40 (tax included) which is highly unusual for the St. Cloud area. The clerks were very friendly. There is a Hardee's right next door; as well... More

I have to say that this place has been a delight to stay at. I needed a place to live for about a month and I was very pleased! The managers are wonderful and the rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable! They offer free HBO and free high speed internet plus have nice sized fridges and microwaves in the rooms.... More

I was satisfied with the Gateway. It suited my needs. Just needed an inexpensive place to stay for a few hours. Didn't need the frills of hot tubs, swimming pools and continental breakfast, just needed a place to get out of a blizzard, stay warm, and sleep. This place was very nice. The manager helped me tremendously while being lost... More
