“Exceptional attention to detail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2014

Everything about this hotel is perfect, inside and out. Many hotels make a favorable first impression, but then you spot the short comings. At Gateway Motel, we were more impressed with the level of detail the longer we stayed. I've stayed in brand new high-end hotels that did not measure up to the standards of this hotel. Everything in the bathroom; tile, fixtures, etc. looked brand new and was polished and spotless. Sitting on the balcony outside, the chairs and tables were just as clean and even the outside woodwork looked newly stained and varnished. This was our second stay at Gateway and we definitely stay again if we travel this way.

Basic but very clean value motel in Radium. Walking distance to restaurants stores and other town amenities and only 5 mins to Radium hot springs which are awesome! Di I mention wild big horned sheep just casually walking around town. Really enjoyed the weekend and the quiet and clean motel.

Stayed here for the 3rd time in about the last 10 years. The service and cleanliness hasn't changed a bit - it's near perfect! Very quiet 2 good nights sleep. Beautiful flowers on the deck and mountain views. Can't beat it!

Very clean, basic accommodation. The motel is very well maintained. The check-in was fast and efficient. The queen room is small by modern standards and the bathroom has virtually no vanity space. The bed is extra firm and the pillows are foam. The curtains must be closed at all times if you wish privacy since people walking past your room have a good view into it. The lighting is harsh and must be on at all times if the curtains are closed for privacy. The rooms are noisy because the motel is located on a highway with 24 hour traffic, including logging trucks. As well, you can hear conversations in adjacent rooms, footsteps from the rooms above yours and noise from people walking past your room. The free wi-fi was good. The free pool passes to Radium Hot Springs are nice and this motel is a good choice for a one night stay if you're visiting the hot springs.

This is one of those places you feel at home in. The staff are very welcoming and your room is super clean and tidy. Love all the flowers that surround the building. Great place to stay in Radium for sure.

Green Features: there are recycle bins in your room to safe on what is disposed off.

My family was stranded in Radium on our way to Lake Louise (long story) and the staff was extremely accommodating. The motel is very reasonably priced and is impeccably clean! It's an adorable place and I highly recommended it. They saved our hides!

Enjoyed another stay at The Gateway Motel! Super, super clean, comfortable rooms, balcony & sitting areas with amazing flowers & beautiful valley views. Owned & operated by an extemely hospitable family whose hard work is very evident. The BBQ, fire pit & outdoor eating area is fantastic. Fabulous to have Hot Springs passes & pool towels included. No need to worry about the highway as there is very little traffic from early evening through the night. We highly recommend & will definitely be back on our next visit.
