Idk where to start!!! Stunk like must, cobwebs, dead bugs, ancient soap in the bathrooms and overall dirty rooms. I couldn't stand 2 minutes in the room let alone overnight!

The rooms look nothing like what's on the website. It was horrible and the beds were uncomfortable. It smelled musty and the whole room was just gross. If you are looking for a budget room.....sioux falls is not that far away.

We stayed one night. Room was $55 for 2 people with 2 beds. Beds were good, shower was hot, tv had cable, fridge and microwave, and coffee was free in office. Some of the furniture needed some work. Nice woman who ran it. Good pizza buffet down the road. I agree with other reviews

I had a son at Keystone Treatment Center and needed a room to stay for the night. The decor is older but the room was nice. The price is wonderful. Was impressed that there was a microwave and refridge in the room. I would stay there again.

We came into town for a birthday party and did not want to drink and drive so we decided to stop at the Gatewway Motel. This is the only place i'd stay. Owner was so friendly and the rooms were very CLEAN!!! Very impressed!

This is a small '50s courtyard motel on the outskirts of town. I liked their cheery neon sign and decided to spend the night. The owners were friendly, and the rate was decent, just $51.60 with tax. The rooms weren't big, but there was room to get around. The carpet and furniture were a little old, but everything was clean.... More
