Budget motel that is just 5 minutes from a major boat ramp on Lake Shelbyville (Bo Woods). Very clean, comfortable beds, cable TV, and great air conditioning and just minutes from McDonald's for a power breakfast before fishing. Five Stars!!!

Friendly people here. Easy to find, easy to park, very affordable, and they take dogs. I stayed here with a big Akita 2 (or 3?) times. Plenty of space to walk the dog. Great family restaurant next door. Comfortable room with wi-fi, good TV, micro, fridge. Small charge for the dog, but can't remember how much -- maybe 5 or...

I booked this hotel for a family group attending a performance at Little Theatre on the Square. Based on the recommendations here on Trip Advisor I figured it might be ok. And it was. If I needed to stay longer than one night it might not have been. The beds were comfortable, and there were microwaves & refrigerators in each...

This is not a 5 star as it's an old hotel that has had a moderate but not a total refreshing. The good news is that where you would never have wanted to stay here a few years ago, it's now fine. The carpet is new, furniture is solid, sheets are fresh, and everything works. I give it 4 stars...

We stayed at Gateway during our Labor Day white bass and crappie haul (98 keepers!) and found the location to be near all of the hot spots and nightlife that Sullivan, IL, has to offer. At $49/night, Gateway Inn is terrific for your college student-type budget and it is only 5 minutes from Bo Woods ramp on Lake Shelbyville. The...

We reserved 5 rooms for Labor Day weekend here for $49 a night per room. What a Bargain!! This budget motel has 2 beds per room, impeccably clean, great TV cable service and a refrigerator/freezer in each room. There is a McDonald's just 2 minutes away that opens at 5:30 a.m. for fisherman. If you are fishing Lake Shelbyville this...

We have stayed at Gateway for several years. We store our boat at Wolf Creek State Park and during the summers we drive down and go boating with our family and friends. Our children learned to ski and go tubing on this lake. The owners are friendly, curtious and accommendating. After boating all day long it is nice to go...

The room was clean and the bed real comfortable. As long as you don't look around it is fine to sleep there. I wouldn't want to spend any amount of time in the room. The rooms are definitely in need of major repairs. There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room. If I had no other available choice, I...
