This hotel had the minimum. I expect more from somewhere I have to pay over a hundred dollars for, but it didn't have it. It was generally clean, but that was it. The pillows were very small the tv was old, the breakfast was minimal and the keys were something I haven't seen since the 80's.

I came to stay at Gateway Inn in the summer of 2013 because we were burying my Bonus dad. This was a sad time, he was one of the best friends I've ever had and I loved him dearly. I arrived before the rest of my family and wanted to just get comfortable, get food and rest. I have a... More

Gateway Inn is on Sunrise HWY-a major road, near the Merrick LIRR station, and a short drive from Jones Beach. Overall, I liked it because it was close to the family we were visiting and it had pretty much everything we needed. My husband found the beds hard and uncomfortable and is not too keen on going back. Rooms were... More

Found this hotel on Columbus Day Weekend on busy Long Island after an exhausting search through another hotel staff member who led us to this hotel. We called the Gateway Inn and spoke to Kevin, who was an absolute angel. Kevin provided us with exact driving directions to the hotel and upgraded us to a beautiful huge room on the... More

I stayed at the Gateway for four nights. The staff and service are top notch - better than I've experienced in many 5-star hotels! It was a pleasant shock to be greeted by name when passing through the lobby. That's the good part. My room was upstairs, in the rear of the building, which apparently has not been refurbished yet.... More

Went to see Jimmy Buffet at Jones Beach last light. Decided to stay in town, we didn't feel like driving 2 hrs back home. I have to agree with all the other positive reviews. Arrived at 11:00 pm. (By the way there's a 7-eleven next door for snacks) Quick service at the desk . In our room in 5 minutes.... More

The staff are terrific, Kevin the Hotel Manager really cares about the guests & the staff and it shows in how the guests in turn treat the guests & each other. Jeremy who oversees the breakfast is attentive;... More

We stayed at the Gateway Inn last week when we came into town for a concert. We picked this hotel based on the positive reviews and the price. From my first encounter on the telephone I was impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. When we arrived I was equally impressed with the room. We were on the... More

Second time I have stayed here. The place is not a Hilton, or Ritz Carlton. More like a shade or two below a Holiday Inn. But the place is clean and comfortable. The front desk is super friendly and will try to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Saturday morning all they had was a smoking room. Later that... More

Recently we were visiting family on Long Island. We stayed at the Gateway Inn, Merrick NY. The service was outstanding and the amenities were perfect. Our room was on the 2nd floor very clean and quiet. The staff could not do enough for us friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast is a real plus. . We highly recommend the Gateway...
