We made last minute plans to travel over a holiday weekend and everything that would accommodate our family size of 6 was sold out. We ended up calling Gateway because they don't do online reservations after several misses elsewhere. Mike didn't even hesitate when we told him how many people and when he told us the price that was even better! The day we were supposed to arrive we were running late, but he was so easy to work with and made it so that we could easily access our room. The room was better than I anticipated, had plenty of space for us, and the staff was accommodating. It was not overly fancy, but it was just what we needed. We would definitely stay again.

Very pleasant stay in an old style roadside motel. When you stay here you’ll experience what travelers had available before all the chain and franchised motels. The room was rustic but clean and neat. The owner was quite friendly and helpful. For those willing to make a motel adjustment for at least one night this place will create a positive experience. If in the area again, we would stay here.

My fiance, our son, and I stayed here for 2 nights, and we HIGHLY recommend it! The room was VERY clean, the bathroom was spotless, and the beds were comfortable. The decor is unique. The bath towels were thick. Air conditioning worked great. The owner was very nice and helpful. Fyi, bring your own shampoo, there is none in the room (not a big deal since there is a Dollar General, a pharmacy, and a grocery store within 5 mins of the motel). We will DEFINITELY be staying here again, and we will be avoiding the big expensive chain hotel that's nearby.

I thought I would be getting a room that looked like the pictures. I must have been put in one that was never updated. I was a little disappointed. Bathroom so small you could barely turn around, shower stall only and it had that and mildew on the shower door. Shower ran not and cold, almost like when my kids used to flush when I was in the shower. Lol. Other than that it was clean and friendly. Morning light made it impossible to sleep in, large window facing east and drapes were cream colored. Air conditioner was so loud couldn't run it at night.

I have no idea how these folks have been able to maintain the absolute charm of a motel from yesteryear while keeping everything just immaculate! Super nice owner, eve. Brought out towels to dry off our motorcycle after it rained. Not a lot here for young children but if you are a couple looking for the ultimate UP experience then this is the place for you! Also recommend the parties at Timber Charlie's which is just down the road a bit.

My son was on his way back to college after a holiday weekend at home when his car broke down and had to have it towed to a dealership in Newberry. I contacted the Gateway hotel since i needed to get a place for him to stay the night and it was within walking distance to the dealership. The owner was Very friendly and personable and helped me (and my son) feel at ease during this stressful time. The owner was accommodating and allowed him to stay longer that next day while he was waiting for service on his car. The room was clean and had everything he needed!

A charming motel in Newberry. It reminds me of what motels were like in the 50's and 60's. Tastefully decorated - we loved the knotty pine!!! The staff is so freindy and helpful. A great value for the money! The dog was cute too!

We were here over Labor Day weekend. I was surprised when I called on Friday that they had rooms available for Saturday. We were just coming for a quick overnight to go hiking and try and see the Northern Lights. The room was nice and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. The only problem that we had was no fault of the hotel. Around 11pm, someone was trying to get into our room while we were sleeping. It turns out that he was staying in the same room number in the hotel next door. Kinda scary at the time, but all ended up fine.
