An unplanned stop at Wingate was worth the chance! Had been driving for many hours and decided that we needed a place to lay our heads and get some well needed rest for the continuation of our trip the next morning. We lucked out at the Wingate when the front desk clerk used a little initiative to help us out. I had already stopped at three other random area hotels and they were all sold out, a shock to say the least. When I got here, the male clerk (I wish i recalled his name, Nathan??) was very polite and pleasant and apologized (which he certainly did not even have to say) and said they were also sold out.:( I,m sure I looked worn out and weary and I commented that we were all so exhausted having been on the road for 14 hours. He explained that they had ( 2-3?) rooms that were available BUT that they were not up to the hotels usual standard as the tvs were not working, (we usually get two Queens as we have three people)... and if that was okay with us, we could have one of those rooms. It had a King bed but a sofa pull out He said he would re-check to be sure that that was the only issue and asked me to wait while he checked. A quick wait and he indicated that indeed a room was fully clean and ready except for the tv issue. He then said he would quickly get us Xtra .sheets to make the pull out even more comfy. :))) He did that very quickly as well. He did offer a discount, I paid and off we were to our room. The room was Clean, well furnished and the bed was very comfy. The Xtra sheets were already there and we all passed out promptly. Sofa bed worked out well. Next morning, we were all very well rested and 2 of us went down to the included breakfast buffet offered on the first floor area, There was plenty of table and chair set ups.A rack of pamphlets with area offerings A tv. played low volume to catch up on news if you so chose. the area was Immaculate and the offerings were Plenty! bread/Toast and bagels with accompaniments Fresh hot items too...eggs, sausage, small potatoes, cereals, juices coffee, tea water, pastry and more. It was better than some restaurants. And the female that was replenishing and keeping it orderly was quite nice as well! the food was YUMMY and we enjoyed our Hot breakfast.
We would definitely stay at the location again and would also recommend it to others for a good nights sleep, courteous employees, clean and comfy room appointments and a plentiful Breakfast. Buffet. We did not use any of the other hotel amenities which were present.
