This hotel is so cute and the decor is so rustic. The restaurant is a different entity of the hotel. The restaurant and bar are in need of some definite changes! The food, service and drink costs were horrible and outrageous. I would highly recommend the hotel but don't plan to eat or drink there!

We arrived at Grand Lake in a storm, to a "hotel" that had illusions of adequacy at the end of a very long travel day. We found The Gateway Inn a literal safe haven from the weather and from our unfortunate first choice. From the moment we entered this charming inn, we were treated with kindness and taken care of with promptness. Our room was spacious, sparkling clean, cozy and so attractive. We spent a very comfortable night in a great place! Thank you!!!

Nice place but check the room for a balcony for the best experience!

The Inn is older and remodeled in a very attractive rustic theme. I highly recommend reading what each room has before booking as we thought all rooms had a balcony but they do not, and looking out at the lake would be a very different experience for the cost difference than overlooking the parking lot. The elevator is small, older and makes loud noises as it struggles to move up and down. The bathroom and tub/shower were small and in need of updates but clean. There are wood floors instead of carpet but they were very pretty, loud but pretty. The tv was very large and had lots of easy options and the bed was very comfortable but the pillows were terribly lumpy and small. The common area hallways are very narrow and in need of updating as it makes it feel a bit dingy. The bar and deck are very very nice and have views of the lake & lots of places to sit and relax, very nice! The restaurant downstairs was gorgeous and has an incredible ambiance. The front staff needs to treat customers better for sure, friendly was not a high priority. But overall it’s a fun place to stay and close to everything.

Clean Spacious Room

We stayed here last night. Our room was clean and spacious. It was decorated in a nice rustic style. Large TV and comfortable bed. Breakfast wasn’t included so we had breakfast in their restaurant. We both had the Breakfast Croissant that were very good.

Unlike many other places in and around Grand Lake, The Gateway Inn has a/c.

There were a couple of minor problems. I had to wait about 10 minutes to check-in at 4pm because no employee was available. Also, there's no sign on the a/c unit to say that it is controlled from a thermostat on the wall so I thought that the a/c wasn't working correctly when it was. Other than that, this is a nice place. The particular feature I liked was the working a/c. Air conditioning does not exist at many properties in Grand Lake and is a key feature in July when you've been on a long, hot hike. The room was also significantly larger and more attractive than I had expected.
