“Family Reunion Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We stayed here for four nights while in town for a family reunion. The entire staff is very friendly and accomodating. The property is not new, yet the room was totally comfortable and clean. The beds were very nice and the air conditioning was better than some five star hotels I have stayed in. Frig and microwave in the room came in very handy since we were there for more than a day. We chose this motel due to it's proximity to family and will definately use it again when we are in town. Very reasonably priced. While on a major street the noise was never an issue. Breakfast each morning was a pleasant surprise! You can tell the family owners take pride in their product and want to make their guests happy.

We stayed here and really liked it. It is very basic and clean. Didn't want to stay in the city due to cost. We drove to the Midway park and ride to go into the city. $5 at park and ride and ticket was $2.75 each way.

Love staying here. This was my second time. Stayed in the same room both times. Room has been updated since my first stay and looks great. Super clean and a great rate. Beds are very comfey. The Gateway Motel is close to Portillo's too. Great access to Cicero and the Toll-ways too.

So wish I could gush. Service here was that good. Unfortunately, room smelled a bit moldy and kicked off my allergies something fierce. Traffic was noisy. I read reviews about both so prepared myself w/a room freshener and "white noise" machine. Couldn't have slept without them. Loved the staff; sleeping was on the challenging side. TIP: no blow dryer. Bring own coffee as the room had large coffee maker but like most hotels/motels now: supplied enough coffee for one (!) cup of regular. Breakfast served in front office has more coffee, but nice to have in own room too. Fridge in my room was convenient.

Room Tip: Room 25 was on second floor but was musty, noisy from street traffic.

So sorry the traffic kept you from sleeping, that is a problem we are currently working on.
We are so happy the staff made you feel comfortable, and we are also almost done with
entire make over the the hotel.

So please come back for a second try, and this time we are serving hot coffee, hot waffles,
and so much more.

Sincerly,
Bob and Rita, the Gateway to Oak Lawn

After a terrible night at another motel with an uncomfortable mattress that was way too old, we looked at Trip Advisor to find an alternative and found the Gateway. We loved the new mattress, friendly service and comfortable room. Yes, this is an older motel, but it is a good location for us to visit family. The street is noisy at night, but turning on the A/C helped drown out the traffic noise. Good continental breakfast with hard-boiled eggs, bagels and cream cheese, cereal and bananas. Good wi-fi signal. We will be back!

Room Tip: Kitchenettes are available if you need more than a microwave and mini-fridge. However, no dishes or...

Just would like to thank the owners of the motel for being very accomodating. We stayed there this past weekend and the room was very nice. The flat screen tv and cable, air conditioning, bed, and bath were clean. We will gladly stay there the next time we are here visiting our Chicago family.

Room Tip: If you need a first floor, make sure you request it.
