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...

We booked a week's stay to be close to friends on Long Island as well as have access to the city (the hotel is a 10 minutes walk along the highway to the Long Island Railroad Merrick station). We were delighted with our accommodation. A nice large room, with well-appointed bathroom (toiletries included). The bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean,...

We stayed at Gateway Inn to attend a funeral in the area. There are very few properties on the South Shore of Long Island – most are found along Hempstead Turnpike. The location was perfect for us. The room was clean, the Internet worked and we had a nice stay for two nights. The Continental breakfast had cereal, oatmeal, bagels...

The hotel has plumbing issues and has no irons or boards in the bedrooms. As a matter of fact, only one full size iron board in the whole hotel! The free breakfast has sweets and sugary foods mainly. No real type adult breakfast. In the courtyard you can literally look in the rooms in the next court! The staff was...

My wife and I were recently visiting friends in Massapequa. We headed out to Montauk earlier in the day and needed a place to stay that night. The Gateway Inn fitted the bill. We were going to go to Jones Beach which is apparently close by but never made it. Check in was quick. We had a room in the...

Nothing fancy, but a good option if you are going to be in Merrick area. Continental buffet breakfast had more choices than we expected. It's also near the LIRR station, so it's easy to get into Manhattan.
