Just needed a warm clean cozy room. Immediately felt at ease and safe. Thank you Gate Keeper. We looked and looked after coming into town that was affordable and could still be clean. The manager is a kick and is very helpful.

We came to Reno in October 2011 to get married, we liked it so much here we decided to stay. We drove around looking for a nice safe place for our family to stay, and we found the Gatekeeper Inn. From the moment we arrived, the manager, Tim, was a major help. He is awesome, the best manager we ever... More

We've stayed here several times because of it's location and returned because of the former manager, Margie. However, Margie is no longer there and the new manager can't compare. The rates seem to fluctuate at the whim of the new manager and are twice as high as usual during special events such as Hot August Nights and Street Vibrations. Basically... More

This Motel couldn't be in a better location! A sweet Mom 'n' Pop style run motel with very helpful and friendly staff. It's small and cozy at a very reasonable rate!
