They have the newest and cleanest rooms in town. They have a very freindly staff and take very good care of you. They are also usually the best priced.

Thank you for your compliments! We just painted some of the rooms on the view side giving those rooms a totally different feel. You will have to ask for one of those rooms when you come again. Hope all is well with you. Lisa

The Gateway Inn is a great place to slow your pace of life. Lisa and the staff are friendly and pleasant and the views are incredible. Watching the sunset from the lounge/bar is priceless! Winter and summer ~ The perfect place to escape to the Rock Mountains!

We've stayed in a few different places in Grand Lake and the Gateway Inn was, by far, our favorite (we're going back next weekend!). We have two small children that snowmobile with us. The rooms were the perfect size(2 queens), nice bathroom, loved that they had a small fridge and coffee maker in the room. We can hop on the trail right from the hotel, which is another plus (no trailering on and off all weekend!). We stopped down at the bar for happy hour before we went to dinner and it's a great place! The view from the hot tub is spectacular! And, I was glad to see a work-out facility as well - I even used it once! :) Lots of games you can borrow for the kids. The staff was very friendly. All in all, just a great weekend!

i took the family up to Grand Lake for a weekend of snowmobiling and stayed at the Gateway. I was very pleased with the Hotel. It appears to be an older hotel but has recently been updated. i requested a 2 queen room and got a room with 1 queen and two bunkbeds, which actually was better for my teenage sons. The room was clean, warm and everything functioned well. The shower was also very good, plenty of pressure and hot water. (Important little things when you are sore from snowmobiling).

Their location was great as it was right on the trail into the national forest and they had a great upper parking area for trailers. It is also across the street from a snowmobile rental outfit (Grand Adventures) and a Polaris dealership if parts or oil are needed.

The owner was very friendly and actually informed me that expedia had overcharged me for the room and arranged the discount when I arrived.

It isn't a luxury hotel, there aren't any in Grand lake that I know of, but it was reasonable, clean, conveniently located and trailer parking for my sleds was a breeze. That's all I required on this trip. We really enjoyed our weekend and will definitely go back here again.

Thanks so much for your comments on Tripadvisor.com! We have 2 new feet of snow in town and 4 feet out on the trails in the past 7 days! I've been building bed sleds for the winter carnival on Feb 7th. Wish you and the kids could have been here for the carnival. Hope to see you again soon.

The Gateway Inn is everything that a hotel should be. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous, the rooms were nice and clean, and the atmosphere was amazing. They even had a Wii set up for the kids!!! Thanks to Lisa for making our stay so enjoyable. We will most certainly be back and will never stay anywhere else in the area.
