Pacific Gateway Hotel
Convenient for early / late flights
Convenient for early or late flights. Coffee shop is only open until 12pm and there aren't many options nearby. Shuttle is quick and easy (every 20 mins / 24hrs a day / takes 5-10 mins to reach the airport) Rooms are clean but beds are small.

Pacific Gateway Hotel
We used this hotel for a one night stay prior to flying home, we dropped the rental car off, went outside to the hotels shuttle bus stop and the bus was just pulling in, perfect, the driver very helpful with loading our heavy cases and a short drive to the hotel was just right. Check in was very quick and smooth, and even though we were early, there was a room ready for us. The room itself was clean although dust in and above the bathroom lights could do with sorting out, the dark furniture was a bit worn and scratched could do with a bit of wood stain but the bedding was spotless and the beds very comfortable. The bar and restaurant staff were very nice and it was pleasant having our last nights drinks and eats outside. They are building a larger deck area which should be nice when finished, breakfast was spot on as well, very pleasant staff again and nice food. The reception area was a pleasant area to just sit and waste a bit of time before leaving for our flight, the shuttle bus is a really good service evey 20 mins. Nothing much in the area, walked to the outlet stores about 15 mins. walk away just for something to do, but the hotel was perfect for what we used it for, pre flight stopover.

Convienient for a one night airport stay
Great bust service and good location as its close to the airport. A bit dated otherwise, no room service, poor bath tub, no glasses for water etc, expensive for what you get

Pacific Gateway Hotel
Ok but fell below expectations
All in all this hotel is ok but not amazing. Location is great next to the airport but my room did not live up to expectations based on the pictures on the website. Whilst very spacious with a comfortable bed, it was completely bland with non of the cosy comforts intimated. No pictures on walls etc. Maybe I was in a room that hasn't been upgraded yet; I hope this is the case as otherwise the hotel is really disappointing if this is the best on offer. Fridge and bathroom fan were unbearably noisy all night. Staff very friendly and helpful, and the lobby is lovely but all in all I'm disappointed I used my tenth free night on this.
