The people were very nice and helpful. Room was immaculate and very quiet. We were very pleased with everything. We were attending a concert at the Nassau Coliseum and getting there from the motel was quite easy.

My wife and I have tried many motels. Finally found the Gateway. I read many of the reviews negative and positive. We checked in Friday afternoon everything went great. Our room was spotless (252). Room may be a little outdated, but that did not bother use. We will be back every time we are on the Island. We stayed in...

Great experience. I needed a few days away and this was the perfect place. Quiet, clean, convenient. Easy access to the Long Island Railroad and highway. Staff went over and above to make my stay pleasant. Continental breakfast and 24 hour coffee a plus. Would definitely stay here again.

The people were very nice and helpful. Room was small but immaculate. Good bed. Coffee and newspapers by the lobby. Coffee and decaf were quite drinkable and fresh even later in the day. Parking right by the rooms which is convenient like the old motorcourts.

We came into town to see some friends and we choosed this hotel because of the positive reviews and the price. Close axes to RR, great bagels for breakfast and a clean room. What more could ask for. Very friendly helpful staff.

I stayed here for a nearby wedding. It did the trick for my 3 night stay. Felt pretty dated and motel like but can't really complain with the price paid. Room was supposedly non smoking but definitely smelled like smoke...at least I wasn't spending a lot of time there. Breakfast was simple but great with fresh bagels and pastries from...

Room was good value. If we'd have wanted a 5 star hotel, we'd have paid 5 star prices. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was adequate. We wanted somewhere safe, clean and quiet and The Gateway delivered on all 3 three. Would go the again and would recommend.

We needed a place to stay on Long Island for 3 nights that was close to family and still accessible to the City. When I made the reservation, this hotel had the best price I found, was close enough to family, and had acceptable reviews, plus it was in walking distance of the LIRR station. But when we arrived, I...

The room was nice enough and a passable breakfast. However, the temperature changed during the last night and the room was 65 the next morning with the heater blowing out cold air. They had not paid attention to the weather forecast and thus had not turned on the heat for the entire building.

We needed a place to stay to attend a wedding and this hotel was close to the venue. I did not expect much as we usually stay in big chain hotels. This hotel was by far the cleanest hotel I have EVER stayed in. The staff, every one of them here was friendly and helpful. I requested a room change...

“First time we stayed we had an outside room which was a bit more noisy than the courtyard room we had this time. It was extremely quiet.”
