As we bid a fond farewell to the "Land of Lewis and Clark", our final stop was the Wingate by Wyndham near the airport. When I say near, I really mean near...it is literally right across the street. Talk about convenient. Usually I am wary of airport hotels for the obvious reasons...noise, noise and noise. The Wingate is a surprising exception to that rule. Read on for details...
Located literally right across the street from the terminal. A 5 minute walk. Yes, really! Of course they will come and pick you up at the terminal with their free shuttle service and drop you off for your flight as well. There is a sign up necessary for a drop off, so be sure to check with the front desk.
The Spokane Airport area is a bit outside of town, surrounded by minimal development. There are some business parks, but it is very quiet. Ideal for a good nights rest whether you are coming or going....and this is an airport hotel! I was even able to return out rental car and walk to hotel in 5 minutes. Convenience is a huge reason why you should stay here.
We reserved a suite and boy was it spacious! It was huge...almost too big? It seemed like something was missing...a kitchenette or something. There was that much space. The kids were more than comfortable on the pull out couch bed. And because there was so much room in the suite, it never felt cramped when we pulled it out.
The breakfast buffet is set out at 5:30a daily. We had an early flight so were grateful for the early set up. Everything was out for us to enjoy except the oatmeal...which did arrive shortly. Good variety of foods for all palates.
The pool was small but comfortable set to a reasonable temperature, but definitely NOT big enough for any kind of workout. The hot tub was indoors. It was huge but being indoors makes for a stuffy tubbing experience. Not a big fan, but at least they had a hot tub in working order.
Workout room...if you follow my reviews you know I am VERY picky about my workout rooms...and this one was disappointing. Just a few pieces of equipment...the usuals and nothing to write home about. Low marks for a lackluster workout room.
Note: The pool, hot tub and workout room featured their own towels for use. We did not have to bring the ones from the room down...big plus.
Plenty of FREE parking around the hotel. Yup..it is free! High marks there!
Free in room wifi...not limited to public areas..high marks.
Note: I wanted to print out our boarding passes from my laptop in the business center, but as the printer was networked, I could not plug directly in to print. I did not think to try to find the printer on the wifi network, but oh well. I was able to use the computers in the business center and figured out a workaround.
Overall...a very positive and pleasant stay at the Wingate. Checked most all of our boxes for a a comfortable and pleasant stay. We would definitely stay there again and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for lodgings in the area around Spokane Airport.
