Older motel, convenient location, more than adequa

The Gateway staff is great. Close to the Metra to get into Chicago, also close to midway. Rooms are older, clean, not many amenities. Free breakfast area very small, two tables

Thanks for taking the time writing this review- This is a great and honest view of our little hotel, We are a small, older property, that we are constantly renovating, fixing, changing, and etc..... We try to make everyone feel at home, we are working on fixing the breakfast area- so hopefully we can have that changed before you come back ... thank you and we are happy you picked us!! Sincerely- Rita O, owner and operator, and the entire staff at the Gateway Inn of Oak Lawn, Illinois

Old time look and feel

Pros: Family-owned
Cons: Lower the price about $15
Location: Close to Midway International. That's why we selected it.
Clean and comfortable with a very helpful staff. But with no amenities, the price is a little too high. For what they are charging, there should at the very least be a box of kleenex in the room.

Hey Lala, I'm sorry about the experience you had at The Gateway Inn. It sounds like we didn't hold up our end here. We don't like our customers to leave unhappy and dissatisfied, which is exactly what happened with you. We do hold ourselves to a higher standard than what you experienced and will use your feedback to improve our family-owned property. We are in the process of updating The Gateway Inn. If you visit us again, feel free to stop in and talk to Rita or Bob (the Owners). We appreciate all reviews (even the poor ones) as those help us understand the issues and institute the necessary changes. Thanks for staying, and we do hope to see you again! :) - The Staff at the Gateway Inn
