Reviewed October 20, 2012

I have stayed here at the Gateway a few times and like it. It is plain and simple but the people are friendly and professional and the rooms are clean and neat. There really aren't many motels in the area that are spectacular and I always try and stay away from the super expensive and touristy places in Bluff. Why is it that Bluff feels it is able to overcharge their guests??

Anyway - I usually just drive the half hour to Blanding and stay here then I spend the thirty dollars I saved on a nice hamburger at the excellent burger stand down the street and then buy a book or something equally cool at the Edge of the Cedars Museum in town. Blanding is a great little town and the people are very friendly.

We were on a motorcycle trip and reserved a room here on our way back home from the Monument Valley. We knew it would be a hot day and a hot ride, so we wanted a hotel with an outdoor pool. When we got to the pool, one of the rules, was "no drinks". Not, "plastic only" or something similar, just "no drinks". I've never seen this at any motel/hotel pool we've ever stayed at. So since we didn't want to run back and forth outside the pool for something to drink, we didn't bother with the pool. Our room was average,

Rooms looking a little tired and pool could do with a tidy up, but the place was clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff were helpful. Effective a/c but not the quietest. I'd be surprised if any of the other motels in Blanding was significantly better or worse.

Our room was very clean and the a/c did a fantastic job, very important as the temp was near 100. Comfortable bed, spotless bathroom and recently freshened with new paint and decor. We could not have wished for better. And it was in the $65-$70 range! The young lady who checked us in was very professional and offered great advice for dinner and sites including the Dinosaur Museum.

We made our res's the same afternoon and found Michelle to be one if the best and most helpful hotel employees ever. When we arrived on motorcycle, our rooms were clean cool and inexpensive! This place is a real jewell on an otherwise dismal area for hotels!

The Gateway Inn may be older, but it was clean, had lots of hot water. I didn't hear neighboring rooms, they are Pet Friendly, cable works and has a basic breakfast included. Front desk was fast and friendly. Overall, a good value for the money.

Facility is old and tired. Room was not clean, cracked wall in shower/bath, no shampoo. Towels were terrible. I feel bad about this review because the only redeeming quality about this property was the front desk staff. The 2 girls working were friendly and helpful. This property desperately needs a renovation if it wants to compete with other Blanding accommodations. Noisy, too near the highway.
