Welcome to The Gate City Hotel and Grill formerly known as MJ’s Ranch House in Crawford, Nebraska. Crawford is located three miles east of historic Fort Robinson State Park and twenty-five miles west of Chadron, NE on Highway 20—a section of which is now known as Crazy Horse Memorial Highway. Our historically rich part of Nebraska is also undoubtedly the most beautiful region of the state with varied landscapes that include vast prairies, pine-covered hills, and majestic bluffs that overlook the White River Valley. The Gate City Hotel and Grill is a family owned hotel and restaurant with an exceptional old-time atmosphere, affordable high-quality lodging, food and drink complimented by professional, courteous and friendly service. The Kreman family has roots in Nebraska dating back to 1881, with six generations calling Nebraska home.
