This small cozy property is set in the picturesque town of Radium Hot Springs where the flowers and the scenery are as plentiful as the big horn sheep that call it home. The Gateway is located on Highway 93, just a short 5 minutes from the entrance of Kootenay National Park and it's world famous Radium Hot Springs. With spectacular mountain views overlooking the Columbia Valley, an afternoon can easily slip away relaxing in the warm sun. We take pride in providing reasonably priced accommodation, exceptionally clean rooms and superior guest service. All units offer air-conditioning and wireless Internet access. We have a range of rooms to meet your needs. Our rooms are the cleanest in the valley, 100% NON-SMOKING and exceptionally comfortable. The hot springs, restaurants, golf courses and hiking trails are only minutes away. So, why not spend some time in Radium Hot Springs and discover why we love to call this place home. We offer a light continental breakfast to all guests between 8am and 10am daily. There are a variety of baked goods (made fresh daily), fruit, yogurt, coffee and juice to choose from. We also offer traditional espresso and specialty coffees made fresh to order using only the highest quality locally roasted beans for just a little extra.

Stayed the weekend with my girlfriend. The rooms were very clean and homie. The staff were extremely friendly! The homemade breakfast delights were a nice touch! We also really enjoyed the view from our room! Will definitely be staying here again in the future!

This motel was a delight. It was exceptionally clean. One aspect that I REALLY appreciated was the lights in the room. So many hotel/motel rooms have minimal lighting and everything looks yellowish and dim. This room had many lights with many controls, so we could have it as

My boyfriend and just checked out after two nights here. Check in was easy, Joe (the owner/manager I assume) was very friendly without being overbearing. The room was clean and there were extra pillows and blankets. The room was tiny (as will happen with no frills places) but

This is by far the best place to stay in this whole area. We are always traveling and like to stay in higher end hotels usually. We chose this beautiful cozy motel by chance and found a hidden treasure. Erin, the owner and her husband are amazingly hospitable and Erin makes a

Yes, dogs are allowed but there is a 'pet fee' added to the price of the room. It is best to phone the motel directly to see if they can accommodate you and your dog as they have a certain amount of pet friendly rooms available and they can let you know their policy and answer any questions you may have at that time as well.
