“Clean, Well-Appointed Rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2009

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and had an excellent stay. The hotel is situated close to the interstate amid other chain hotels and outlet malls. Visitors to historic St. Augustine should be aware that it is 8 miles there from the hotel. Rather than fork out the extra money for a B & B downtown, we endured the drive in. There are several restaurants nearby including a Denny's, (which we would not recommend). The hotel's breakfast room is spacious and serves an excellent hot buffet breakfast. Rooms are spacious, clean and well-appointed. In our view - a good place to stay.

The first sign of trouble was on their marquee. “Hot Tub and In Room Movies” We weren’t looking for that sort of hotel, but we had a reservation and decided to give it a try. When we entered the lobby, there was an odd musty smell. The smell was worse in the room. My wife and son have bad allergies and both were having trouble breathing. We went back downstairs and checked out without staying the night. We got a room at the Hampton Inn next door. While the décor and finishes were not a nice as the Wingate, at least we could breathe.

  • Liked — Very high end decor.
  • Disliked — The air.

Taking the cue from other reviews we spent a night here.
Our GPS unit went a little wacky because it is tucked behind
another business (Dennys) and the road configuration is a bit
strange on that corner---especially at night.
Place is new and therefore super clean. Breakfast was really good---even has the waffle maker. Staff were helpful at every turn.
Our only "complaint" was that the beds were a bit subpar. No big deal but even our teenagers brought it up over breakfast.

The only other place that we would probably book upon a return is the Hampton Inn & Suites Oceanside Resorts---which I think is ranked at the top on this site.
We drove out to Vilano Beach (just across from old town) and the hotel is just adjacent to the beach in a perfect setting. Especially if its off-season---because then you get great rates and the whole wild Atlantic Ocean at your bedside. Nothing like a 2 mile walk in the warm surf while the kids are still despartly clutching their pillows for more zzzz-time.

This is a brand new hotel on I-95 outside St. Augustine, Florida. We have a daughter attending Flagler College in the city and are in town a couple of times a year. This last stay was for Family Weekend at the college.

On our previous visits to St. Augustine we have stayed at two different hotels, one on the interstate (twice) and once on the Beach. All three of those stays were unsatisfactory due to dampness/mustiness in the rooms due to the ancient through-the-wall ac units never receiving any preventive maintenance and subsequently draining condensate water INSIDE the rooms onto the carpet. The hotel we tried twice on the interstate is highly rated on many reviewing sites which is unbelievable. In addition to the mustiness problem the rooms there had carpets so dirty the bottoms of your bare feet would get black.

By contrast the Wingate was absolutely spotless. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and well-appointed. Front desk staff was excellent. My only comment on checking out was that the towels weren't as soft and fluffy as they could be.

Comlimentary breakfast was a FULL breakfast, not just cereal and waffles, in a spacious dining area. For those wanting even more, there is a Denny's right next door.

Although this hotel rate is about 50% higher than the bargain places, it is well worth the money.

I have been traveling off and on for the last few months, staying at various hotels along the way. This one was one of the nicest. The room was very clean and welcoming. Although I had two double beds, there was plenty of space leftover. The bathroom was especially large and the walls lining the bathtub were granite; a nice touch. The shower head was the adjustable massage type.

The room included a microwave, fridge, a newer type of alarm with an MP3 docking station, and a coffee maker that made coffee by the mug instead of the conventional 4 cup type.

The mattress was comfy and the room was immaculately clean. The cable tv line-up was extensive.
Breakfast was complimentary and included the usual cereals, juices, pastries, bacon, sausage and a waffle maker.

Staff were pleasant and provided complimentary toothpaste when I discovered I had forgotten mine. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

This is a clean, newish, well appointed hotel and definitely accomodation worth recommending - HOWEVER our stay was ruined by an unpleasant experience with a front desk clerk.

Being used to the free long distance calling provided by Microtel for one, I decided not to use my own free calling card when the hotel book said "complimentary access to long distance in the continental US" I misinterpreted this as meaning "free long distance" and made my call to Virginia. Many companies, including my own provider offer this service.

When a charge appeared on the bill the next morning, I was puzzled and thought there must be an error. I would have been happy with an explanation but was not happy when the clerk essentially accused me of lying with regard to Microtel providing this service. He sneared at the likes of Microtel being able to allow free long distance!!!!! He even started to suggest that if this were the case, he would provide us with a free night's stay but quickly backed off when it looked like we might take him up on his offer!! To his credit he eventually did reverse the charge, but it was his attitude and rudeness that left a bad taste behind.

I will not stay in this hotel again despite the fact that the facilities were good. Take your chances and hope that you understand the fine print!!!

I can't say enough about this hotel. We have stayed in 6 different hotels in the past 2 years (in St. Augustine)... none compare to this great place. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about restaurants, etc.. in the area. Lovely, clean pool. 70 cable stations. Really good, free, continental breakfast. Only 5 minutes or less from Historic District. Free, safe parking. Frige and microwave. Very "roomy" rooms. New hotel. 4 floors. Did I mention how clean it was? Very! And I can get really crazy about the tiniest things in a room! I will never stay anywhere else in this town!
