This review should really be a 3.5. We had a pre wedding happy hour at the gateway lounge. Very beautiful views from the deck and good service at the bar. The staff put on a couple fireplaces outside for our guests. No complaints on that front. This review would be higher except leading up to the happy hour staff at...

The room was large and clean, the bed and pillows very comfortable, and they provided a very nice breakfast. The inn is convenient to RMNP and withing walking distance of the main street of Grand Lake. We...

Just like home!! You don't get much better. Rooms have a log pine decor and the beds are a bit high to get into, but if you do not have mobility problems then this is the place to be. Has a small lounge area with tables full of board games and a shuffle board, a patio has gas fire tables...

Highly recommended.Very good place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of work. Time it with the fall peak season. Great treks and good viewing of wildlife and the fresh air make it a worthwhile place to choose for a break.

Gateway Inn was an excellent choice as we arrived from Rocky Mountain National Bank to Grand Lake. The staff was friendly, rooms were clean, the lounge was fun and the location was convenient. Not the fanciest place, but very comfortable and homey. We will certainly stay here again when visiting beautiful and serene Grand Lake.
