I simply loved this retro motel when I stayed in it in 2007.

In 2006 it sounded pretty bad. Now I'd say its a gem.

-Very friendly helpful young owner who must have upgraded it.

-Full Morning breakfast next door was excellent.
(I am so tired of the chincy do it yourself continental grab and go)

-Bed was comfortable. Price was great. $37

-Biggest thrill...
Room was very very spacious.

- Much larger than Motel 6 nearby, which always seemed jam packed and had heavily used rooms with bangs and scrapes on the walls.

-Bathroom at the Gatehouse was large... which I loved. Large counter to lay things out on. Large enough for 2 at a time. Warming lamp. Just Great.

The shower had a high end massage head. Wonderful.

Why don't the chains build them like this anymore. The bean counters have them inching everything down in size... and the toilet is on top of the bath, squashed into a tiny closet of a space.

Towels were fine. Room was fresh and clean. I heard no ice machine mentioned in an earlier review, which must now be fixed.

I have travelled by car for 10 years up and down and I have never seen such a nicely kept up older facility.

It was open late at night when I arrived and had space which I liked.

Others I talked with staying there liked it as well.

I plan to stay at the Gatehouse Motel everytime I pass through and I'm a regular traveller through this area.

I'd call it a gem.
A hidden secret.

Rustic is too kind. This place looked like it was frozen in time about 1969. Rooms smelled musty, towels were the worst I've ever used and the bed was like a slab. The ice machine sounded like a jet engine at idle. Don't bother unless you like to suffer.
