Looking for place to stay over Christmas, original plan was to stay at "on beach" resort, but once you priced out various resort fees and mandatory cleaning fees which ran anywhere from $80-130 regardless of stay length, it because apparent we weren't really getting a deal at all. This hotel is not on the beach, but for the money you'll spend, its a way better deal. Room is decent, nice size, staff was great....breakfast included, cookies, even a manager's reception in the evening with free wine and beer. Yes, FREE. Location is right in the middle of Destin, next to a great pizza place, a grocery store and a Target. You really can't beat it for the price.

Stayed for two nights at Christmas, the desk clerk said Bah Humbug when we checked in and that he thought Christmas was not special at all, the toilet was clogged, and i had a thread bare towel with grease stains on it.

Thank for your review. We appreciate you letting us know about how your stay went so we can improve. I have spoken to the agent that checked you in and he was trying to joke with you about the holiday. I am sorry if it came across any way but professional. At the Wingate we strive for
excellent service and we will take this situation and get better from it.

I was looking to make last minute reservations for the night in Destin and checked my GPS. It gave me the number for Hampton Inn, and when I called, Wingate answered. They were taking all the calls for the Hampton Inn which was closed for renovations. I am gald they were. It is a block off the main road in Destin and near to the beach and shopping and dining and was very friendly and clean and accomodating. They did so great that we ended up staying for two nights. As I left they gave me a discount coupon for the next day. They serve hot breakfast in the morning and were sure to remember to ask about how our stay was and how our day was going. Very nice place and I would be sure to stay again when in Destin!
