We just returned from a 12 day trip to California (San Francisco, San Jose, Sequoia, Yosemite, Tahoe and Napa). We planned to stay 2 days at the Gateway but it was a dump - no cell phone service, no internet service, no land line phone in the room - and NO STAFF OR MANAGEMENT present from 10pm - 10am! The only way to get a "breathtaking view" of the river was to walk behind the lodge restaurant through a pile of smelly trash and trash cans - it was gross. The small window a/c had a very tough time keeping our room under 80 degrees. The food was horrible - my entire group agreed this place was the worst lodging and food of the entire trip. We left after one day and forfeited our next day charge (even though the staff told us we would get a refund). We loved California but I made a big mistake when i booked here - would have been better off at the Bates Motel.
