Reading the previous reviews of Gateway Inn I thought I would be fine. I was really trying to say some money on a long trip. Let me preface this by saying I have bunked is some sad, slimy places during my years in the military but this was just beyond..... Smoke smell everywhere, it just wasn't as bad in my room. Hallway ashtrays attached to the wall at the elevator. The carpet was ripped, torn and wrinkled so bad it was a serious tripping hazard, the desk clerk mumbled so bad I could barely understand her, towels the size of postage stamps (no charge for the exfoliation they caused), dust bunnies along the baseboards (I was afraid to look under the bed), holes in the walls, paint peeling off walls and the security guard let himself into our room. When I stopped him, he said something about housekeeping check then went next door and did the exact same thing! Never, never again.
