My husband and I have stayed at the hotel twice. We are locals who like to have a getaway night from teenagers and pets. The first stay was wonderful. It was about a year ago and we had a corner suite on the top floor (3 floors) with a separate living/dining room, whirlpool tub, and king-sized bed. Beds are very comfortable. They give a good discount to people affliated with the local universities. Continential breakfast with hot waffles is included.
The second stay was about three weeks ago. Not as great of an experience. I used Hotwire.com to book a last minute room. Could have gotten a better price calling them directly but was expecting to end up at the McM Elegante, Residence Inn or Hilton Garden Inn based on the star rating I specified. Hotwire and Tripadvisor don't use the same scale. Three stars is as high as there is in Abilene and the Wingate is about a 2 1/2. The room had a king-sized bed with a loveseat, mini fridge and standard shower/tub combo. The hotel was full (rodeo in town). We heard some people stomping above our heads and in the halls but the worst part is that the person who checked us in charged us for the room after it was already paid for via Hotwire. Straightening it out has been a hassle.
Bottom line: A good place to stay if you have don't have noisy neighbors but be careful if you use a non-Wyndam website to book the room.
