This is an old property but it did what a motel should do: Provide a clean, comfortable and quiet environment for a good night's sleep. The owners are very friendly and go out of their way to be sure their guests are satisfied. They seem to be undertaking a slow renovation process an progress can be seen. A comp breakfast...

If you want "fancy" then this motel isn't for you. However, the Gateway Lodge is simple, clean, quiet and well worth the value. The owners are friendly and went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. I can't say enough how immaculate our room was! Seriously, I have OCD and so, have a fear of motel...

Booked a room on labor day for quite the steal and laid back not expecting much. Meeting the owner Marcin was a refreshing dose of air at check in and personalized my room to the back rooms for non smoking and quiet. Then had a 45 minute on Poland and life in Europe haha. Room was obviously redone and looked...

I’ve watched this hotel grow and improve over the years and these new owners are fantastic. They are friendly, polite, and so helpful! They have put so much time and effort into improving and updating their motel. I prefer smaller, family-run establishments like this over those big chain corporate places... so this one appeals to me! If you want a...

Great location at a reasonable price. Clean and spacious room with fridge, microwave and fast wifi. Breakfast was excellent - not cooked but good quality. Would highly recommend this place. There is a lovely but malnourished cat with gorgeous blue eyes wondering about that is possibly astray but friendly, please feed him!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It was so nice to have you stay here with us. In regards to your concern about the kitty. He prefers to be outside in the summer (can't convince him otherwise) and he loves to cuddle and stay inside during cold months. He eats like a horse but he is older and...

I have traveled through Colorado for the past five summers. I have stayed in multiple big chain motels and hotels not worth writing about. However, I do have to mention Gateway Lodge because of the great and friendly service provided by the owners Anna and Marcin. I feel bad because I should have left this review 5 years ago, but...

I called the Gateway Lodge directly to make my reservation and spoke with a woman who is one of the owners (a young couple own and manage the hotel) and was pleasantly surprised by her friendliness and knowledge of the area. This is an older facility which has been updated and improved significantly since the new owners took over. It...

Revamped, repainted, refurnished with new management (which is what pulled me in). Very friendly, helpful staff/management. I liked staying in the middle of town within walking distance of all the mom-and-pop shopping and restaurants. I was concerned about the noise level on the main drag, Railroad Ave, but I slept with both windows open on a Saturday night without a...

Since I travel to Rifle every weekend, I thought to stay overnight once for a change. I found this little gem through booking.com. I chose it for location and price.
