Not such a great stay for the price :(
Gateway used to be such a lovely hotel. Since the covid crisis it’s went considerably downhill. Such a shame. Our room had issue after issue, and though they were dealt with it felt like things that shouldn’t of taken place at all.

I definitely will stay here again and again
My stay was awesome. This was my second year in a row staying here for the IMCA super nationals in Boone. I won't ever stay anywhere else than here when I'm come to this area. Always clean and fresh room and the staff in all parts of the hotel are always nice and greeting.

Great place
Clean comfortable room. Nice comfortable beds. The pool and hot tub are excellent. One nice thing is the hot tub runs continually so you dont have to reset allthe time. The pool was a cool but not cold temp for a nice refreshing swim / play. The rooms don't have chargers for the cell phone etc. But they are being put in. The manager dug out a old plug in that worked for us. Service was great.
