I loved it there. The service was superior. Hotel was nice and clean, cleaning staff and desk staff could not be beat. Their Happy Hour each night with the first drink free was a special plus. Wifi worked great. Room was always clean. Breakfast was so good also. A special thanks to Taneshia for the help in registration, check in, and help with local places.

Nice sized room that was very clean and inviting. Little touches throughout the motel that let you know the management cares about your comfort. Wonderful breakfast that is not limited to boring waffles. Nice clean pool with jacuzzi. BBQ available, too! Fabulous price. I can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else the next time we visit. Very close to base entrance.

Room Tip: Room even has a small stove top so you can prepare simple meals if you wish.

The room was a good size, clean, with a very comfortable bed. Also a sitting area. The room had a frig, microwave, two burner stove. I would usually stay in a Holiday Inn Express, but this motel was much nicer for 1/3 to 1/2 less money. What made the big difference was the staff. They were ALL excellent, friendly and kind. This IS the closest hotel to the main gate at Fort Huachuca. It is just seconds away from the gate. They have free WiFi, a good breakfast and ONE free drink in the afternoon. Hotel pool is small, just enough to cool off. I would surely return here.

Room Tip: No views from any room.

We stayed at Gateway Studios for almost two and a half months and I have nothing but outstanding comments about the staff and management of the hotel.

The front desk staff were at all times professional, friendly and hard working. They insured that there were ample breakfast supplies in the morning and plenty of fresh coffee at all times of the day. They also offered happy hour drinks in the evening which was welcomed after a hard day. They took care of our mail and express packages with care and proper security and tracked each item for accountability.

The service staff kept our room spotless and made sure our pillows and mattress were changed out on a regular basis. We were long term stay so we didn't request full service each day, but if we had asked for it, I have no doubt that we would have got it. The service staff were outstanding and our reference source for what to do in town and the area.

The maintenance technician was always busy keeping things working at top efficiency, don't take this the wrong way, the place is spotless, the a/c's work, the pool is clean, the outdoor grill always working and the lighting and gym equipment in perfect order. The carpets are clean and kept that way by service and maintenance, add to that the professional welcome and friendly atmosphere and you have something many hotels are not offering... a warm home away from home.

I highly recommend this as your place to stay for short or long term visits, it's centrally located to many of Southern Arizona's sites, it's at the front gate of Fort Huachuca and the rates are very reasonable and competitive with hotels in town.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same, i.e. no gimmicks such as honeymoon suites or larger rooms, all are the same...

We decided to stay in Sierra Vista on our visit to Southern AZ. We looked at the reviews for Bisbee (one of our main points of interest), but the hotel reviews simply had too many negatives so we opted for Sierra Vista, a 30 minute drive from Bisbee. It's listed as 21/2 stars so we didn't have high expectations. Much to our relief we found it to be very very good. Room is spacious, includes a large flat panel tv, free wifi (with good reception) fridge, two burner stove (electric), microwave, sink, and cutlery / dishes. Good size desk with office chair, a love seat (convertible to a single bed) and a very comfortable queen bed. They have a small gym, looks like new equip but I haven't used it yet. The staff, so far has been first rate, we've spoken with three of them and they've been cheerful, helpful, and professional. We asked for early check in, they said "no problem," we arrived at 10 am, "no problem." They asked, before they assigned our room, whether we preferred a ground floor or the upper floors, rather than waiting for us to bring it up. They said there's a complimentary breakfast but I'm not a "breakfast person" so I'm not the best judge, same with the complimentary drink after 4:30 (beer or wine). We travel a good deal, this property is in the top 5% of its category and definitely deserves a higher star rating.

We stayed at GS on May 7 and were very pleasantly surprised. Check-in was very professionally done. Complimentary bottled water and a bagged snack greeted us in our room. Room was very clean and, as a studio, was equipped for an extended stay. All lights and fixtures worked well. Only demerit would be that the air conditioning unit is somewhat noisy but it did work well and cycled on and off according to the temp setting. GS is also within walking distance of a number of eateries. Breakfast area was very clean and offered a wide array of items to get your day going, including a choice of complimentary newspapers. Again, we were very pleased with the cleanliness of the facility.
Check-out was fast and efficient. Reasonably priced and probably the best place to stay in this area.
