Wonderful Motel

This motel was very clean, and great for families. With the amenities that it offered, it was a great base lodging for exploring the Kootenay National Park. We would definitely recommend it, and will stay there again!

3rd time staying here

I've stayed here 3 times now because it’s affordable, CLEAN and quiet. The staff is always friendly. It is within walking distance to good restaurants. If I need to stay in Radium again, The Gateway Motel will get my business

Perfect Choice

This motel is a gem! We are tenters but fair weather ones. The weather was inclement so we decided to motel it for the night. The proprietor was friendly, not pushy or overbearing. Our room was immaculate and very well equipped with a kitchenette, sofa, small table and two chairs and everything one would need to prepare and serve a meal to a family of four. Sink, stove dishes etc. were all like new. The room was on the main floor and very quiet and, although it was on the main road to the Hot Springs, it was extremely quiet. We would definitely recommend the Gateway.


The Gateway is dedicated to continually developing new ideas and strategies that will help to preserve our natural environment. As a business we have taken the incentive to incorporate eco-friendly practices throughout the property whenever possible and are continuously striving for more eco-friendly options.

Our steps to becoming eco-friendly

  • 100% recycled paper products used.
  • Installing shower savers, toilet tank savers and low voltage light bulbs.
  • Renovating building to become more energy efficient.
  • Recycling, Reducing, Reusing, and Repairing throughout the lodge.
Help us by doing your part
  • Please use green recycling bins whenever possible; ensure items are rinsed, crushed and place in bin.
    (Note: You can recycle paper, magazines, cardboard, boxboard, tin, cans, and bottles, mixed plastics.)
  • Please conserve energy by turning off heat, lights and television when leaving your room or checking out.
  • Please place only the towels that need to be washed/replaced in the bathtub and try to reuse towels whenever possible.
