We had a room with two doubles, mini fridge. The staff were great, including the nice gentleman who tipped my daughter off to the s'mores makings available from the bartender until 9:30! Cozy quiet room, nice toiletries, and a reasonably good breakfast included. The breakfast wasn't anything to write home about, but it satisfied us just fine. When we arrived... More

The Gateway is a very comfortable place to stay in Grand Lake. You can't really walk into town, more because of traffic and no sidewalks than location, and our wifi didn't work but we just had kindles, not a computer. Other than that no complaints at all. The hotel was filled to the brim with log furniture, art in many... More

Our family stayed here after flying into DIA from Maryland then driving up through RMNP. It was perfect and restful. The staff was friendly and recommended a nice hotel in downtown Grand Lake. If you want a room with a view, reserve early. But the rooms with a parking lot view are just fine for a tired family. Look for... More

I was in Grand Lake for an overnight and couldn't be happier. Great views of the lake from both the room and the bar/deck. Lisa the bartender was just great! The room was well appointed/rustic mountain decor and the bed very comfortable. They do a 3:00 to 6:00 appetizer and drink happy hour. There's a reason Gateway is top rated... More

When we first arrived and were assigned our room, I found it was not a lake view as requested and previously confirmed by phone. My first thought was "Oh no, here we go ... a TripAdvisor nightmare story" ... But, instead of drama, we were immediately reassigned a room with a "peek" of the lake ... which is the term... More

We booked this motel earlier in the spring so we could have a nice place to stay for two evenings while we were at Grand Lake. The motel has a very nice appearance, and if you are fortunate to get a balcony and room on the east side you will have a wonderful view of the lake, town, and mountains.... More

Excellent hotel in an excellent location. Less than 5 minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park. The bar vibe and entertainment was great while we were there. Rooms are new but feel very rustic with the wood decor. Really nice place.

This hotel needs to re-evaluate how they treat guests and the services they provide. We selected this hotel and room from Booking . com and the listing stated it had a hot tub in the room ... the hotel doesn't even have a hot tub. The staff blamed it on Booking . com. We were relaxing in our room after... More

Stayed here for one night after our first night camping with our 4 month old. Such a cozy, comfortable room with great views. I appreciated the size of the room, cleanliness and tall ceilings. Room enough to spread out and settle in. We also loved that it was close to the main street, but far enough away. Our balcony made... More
