We stayed at Gateway Inn to attend a funeral in the area. There are very few properties on the South Shore of Long Island – most are found along Hempstead Turnpike. The location was perfect for us. The room was clean, the Internet worked and we had a nice stay for two nights. The Continental breakfast had cereal, oatmeal, bagels...

The hotel has plumbing issues and has no irons or boards in the bedrooms. As a matter of fact, only one full size iron board in the whole hotel! The free breakfast has sweets and sugary foods mainly. No real type adult breakfast. In the courtyard you can literally look in the rooms in the next court! The staff was...

My wife and I were recently visiting friends in Massapequa. We headed out to Montauk earlier in the day and needed a place to stay that night. The Gateway Inn fitted the bill. We were going to go to Jones Beach which is apparently close by but never made it. Check in was quick. We had a room in the...

Nothing fancy, but a good option if you are going to be in Merrick area. Continental buffet breakfast had more choices than we expected. It's also near the LIRR station, so it's easy to get into Manhattan.

I love the beach. This hotel is nice and close to Jones Beach, as well as Jones Beach theatre. I have been coming here for years. The owner (Kevin) and the staff do a great job at making you feel at home. The rooms are extremely clean. They now have flat panel TV's in the 2 rooms I stayed in...

Just returned from class reunion on Long Island NY. Actually I do not want to review this motel as that I want to keep it secret.. 18 miles from car rentals at JFK and easy access to Meadowbrook, Southern State, Hempstead Tpke and the Expressway. Nothing fancy but lowest prices you can get during summer on Long Island. Great A/C,...

We always stay at the Gateway because it is clean and well run. This time was no exception. Kevin runs a tight ship but is always joyful and it shows with the employees. They always seem to be smiling and helpful. They change linen every day rather than just make up the bed and, although the Gateway is one of...

We weren't sure about this hotel because it is NOT a chain and didn't know what to expect. The pleasant surprise was that is NOT a chain and a delightful place to stay. Yes, it is an older hotel but that was part of its charm. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff was what made our stay. We would...
