The Colorado-Utah Border is a stone's Throw away in Unaweep Canyon. You will find Gateway Canyons in one of the planet's most spectacular red rock canyons. Unaweep means "canyon without two mouths" in Native American. The Gunnison and Colorado rivers are believed to cut through the soft red rock of the Uncompahgre Plateau. This opens up stones from the Precambrian period.

This canyon is also unique in that it drains into two creeks: West Creek and East Creek. As a result, the water flows in opposite directions. Like the National Monument, this area is also recognized in Colorado geology. Guests can also visit the world-class gateway Colorado auto museum.


Standard guest rooms start at 475 square feet. All 72 guest rooms feature colorful Southwestern-inspired décor. There are also flat-screen TVs, a wet bar, and mini-fridges. Some rooms also have gas fireplaces, including patios with built-in fire pits.
