The Gateway Lodge is not fit for humans. It should be condemned. It was the most disgusting room I have ever stayed in. The room had a collection of furniture that must of been retrieved from a landfill. Dirty blankets, refrigerator not defrosted, no shower pressure, no chair at writing desk. The patio consisted of a filthy plastic resin table and dirty cushions on the chairs. There were discarded beer bottles from the previous guests and cigarette butts on the ground. The A/C sounded like a freight train coming through the room. The toilet when flushed would shoot water from the side of the tank onto the side wall. There was no customer service. We had to check-in at the restaurant and the bar maid threw the key on the bar at us. I refused to eat at the restaurant.
