First of all, the photo listed above is doctored. We view behind is not quite that nice, but still OK.
We stayed here in June. The rooms were nice, clean and had a good bed, fridge, coffee maker & a rather noisy AC unit. We would not have needed the AC, except they were having record hot temps there. We mostly slept with the windows open, though. There was a problem with our room when we arrived, but it was solved very quickly. The staff did a good job, but are not very chatty. I can see why some of the previous reviewers thought customer service was substandard.
It appeared to us that there is very limited staffing at the hotel.
We enjoyed spending time on the deck outside the bar. It was very nice with good Wifi access. There is Wifi access in the room area as well. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but you can get some mediocre bar food at the bar if you get really hungry. If you need anything in town, be sure to go in before 7 pm. Everything closes early. There is a small grocery store in town, but it is very expensive. We drove around 15 miles to Granby to find a large grocery store, City Market.
The Gateway is a nice enough place to stay if you are looking for easy access to the west side of RMNP and the lakes.
