We are repeat guests at the Gateway and look forward to more stays in the future. Not only is it a great location, surrounded by ski hills, hiking trails, dirt bike/ATV trails, mountain biking, etc, it is especially affordable. The accommodations are very well maintained and very clean ( a MUST for me). There are several great restaurants in the...

For a great price you get the cleanest room and by far the very best WiFi connection I've ever had in a hotel/motel. Continental breakfast was fresh and home-baked. New owners are friendly and very hospitable. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and would stay again.

This motel was very clean, and great for families. With the ammenities that it offered, it was a great base lodging for exploring the Kootenay National Park. We would definitely recommend it, and will stay there again!

This motel is very clean! It was also very convenient and easy to find. Most importantly the staff (Coreen) gets an A+ for outstanding service. I forgot a pair of pearl earrings on the shelf by our bed. She phoned me the very next day to say she'd found them, and then she offered to mail them back to my...

Very friendly staff. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. We asked for towels to bring to the hot springs and they gladly provided and were fine with us returning them after our check out time. Regret not having visited weird tree home nearby as after reading up about it, it could have been quite an interesting experience. We did...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This small cozy property is set in the picturesque town of Radium Hot Springs where the flowers and the scenery are as plentiful as the big horn sheep that call it home. The Gateway is located on Highway 93, just a short 5 minutes from the entrance of Kootenay National Park and it's world famous Radium Hot Springs. With spectacular mountain views overlooking the Columbia Valley, an afternoon can easily slip away relaxing in the warm sun. We take pride in providing reasonably priced accommodation, exceptionally clean rooms and superior guest service. All units offer air-conditioning and wireless Internet access. We have a range of rooms to meet your needs. Our rooms are the cleanest in the valley, 100% NON-SMOKING and exceptionally comfortable. The hot springs, restaurants, golf courses and hiking trails are only minutes away. So, why not spend some time in Radium Hot Springs and discover why we love to call this place home. We offer a light continental breakfast to all guests between 8am and 10am daily. There are a variety of baked goods (made fresh daily), fruit, yogurt, coffee and juice to choose from. We also offer traditional espresso and specialty coffees made fresh to order using only the highest quality locally roasted beans for just a little extra. ... more   less
