Clean, cozy & quiet! Please ignore earlier reviews. New owners Craig & Kari are a sweet young couple with three boys. They have turned the Gateway Motel into a real nice clean affordable place to stay!

The room smelled bad, the bed was uncomfortable, and the entire place seemed unclean. The only positive thing about it was that it was close to the Keystone Treatment Facility. My advice would be to keep driving to Sioux Falls.

Idk where to start!!! Stunk like must, cobwebs, dead bugs, ancient soap in the bathrooms and overall dirty rooms. I couldn't stand 2 minutes in the room let alone overnight!

The rooms look nothing like what's on the website. It was horrible and the beds were uncomfortable. It smelled musty and the whole room was just gross. If you are looking for a budget room.....sioux falls is not that far away.

We stayed one night. Room was $55 for 2 people with 2 beds. Beds were good, shower was hot, tv had cable, fridge and microwave, and coffee was free in office. Some of the furniture needed some work. Nice woman who ran it. Good pizza buffet down the road. I agree with other reviews

I had a son at Keystone Treatment Center and needed a room to stay for the night. The decor is older but the room was nice. The price is wonderful. Was impressed that there was a microwave and refridge in the room. I would stay there again.

This is a small '50s courtyard motel on the outskirts of town. I liked their cheery neon sign and decided to spend the night. The owners were friendly, and the rate was decent, just $51.60 with tax. The rooms weren't big, but there was room to get around. The carpet and furniture were a little old, but everything was clean....
