4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

My husband and I stayed for one night. We got a really great rate, 30% off the rack rate. The room was non-smoking with 2 Queen beds. It was nicely decorated, and the best part: VERY CLEAN! I used to work in the hotel business and am very picky when it comes to cleanliness. The bathroom sparkled! We did have 2 light bulbs out, but the front desk gave us replacements. The front desk associate who checked us in was pleasant enough, though not overly friendly. He was very efficient. The only mild complaint I had was it was a bit noisy. Thin walls I suppose. Overall, an A-. We would definitely stay again!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The Wingate is set in a peaceful, forest setting, just minutes from the Panhandle's best beaches. The pools (whirlpool and ordinary) are clean, and attractively illuminated at night. The pricing is market competitive. The rooms are large and well-appointed. No bad smells.

The staff is friendly and very courteous. Check-in clerk was a very short woman with very short hair. Knew exactly what she was doing. Luggage carts work well. Breakfast is adequate, but the only fruit is apples. They should add bananas and/or oranges.

If you sleep with the window open, try to get a room away from the front entrance. Smokers congregate out there on weekend evenings. Best rooms are on the backside of the hotel.

The Wingate not only provides the best value for your money in Destin, it may also be the best hotel experience period. Be sure to give it a try. But don't forget to ask for a room on the backside, facing the forest.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room on the backside.
