come back to see us when in the area again
I stayed at the Wingate when in town for a wedding.The hotel was very clean and the free breakfast was great.The staff was friendly and never hesitated when I asked for somthing.It is also in a great location for dining and shopping.I would recommend this hotel if you are ever in Columbia S.C.
How nice of you to take the time to do this review- the entire staff strives to
make guests feel comfortable. I will pass this along to my staff
As always we are attracted to Wingates because of their spacious well laid out rooms. Some Wingates are showing their age but not this one. This one is clean and well run. They were fully booked the night we stayed but the staff handled it well, Those at the desk knew what they were doing and were most pleasant. The general manager Jennifer Perry was herself scurrying down the corrider checking to see if vacant rooms were ready for occupants. It is always nice to see management care that much. An excellent Carrabas Restaurant is close by. The free breakfast until 9:00 in the morning was good.
Would recommend - stayed 4 nights for sons' graduation. Friendly & helpful staff. Nice size room & expanded breakfast buffet. Suggest trying the Carolina Ale House (ribs) and Texas Road House (steaks) both very close. Temps were extremely hot (102) so not much time spent outside.
thank you for taking time to do this- It is always nice to hear from satisfied
guests. please let us be of service to you again should you have a hotel
need in Columbia
I needed a hotel on a budget for a conference I was attending in downtown Columbia. Hotels near the college were twice as much and didn't have near the ratings as this hotel. I've stayed at several Wingate hotels before and always had wonderful experiences and didn't doubt that when booking this.
I booked the hotel based on price + ratings, but was blown away by the cleanliness and courteousness of the staff.
We met the manager in the elevator and she asked about our stay and how we'd heard about their hotel. I mentioned that we saw the Trip Advisor rating and were impressed along with the competitive pricing.
She was glad to hear it and said to let her know if there was anything she could do to make our stay better.
Only one item could have been better for our stay. The hallway (4th floor) and elevator were extremely hot. We stayed on days in 95+ degree weather, but the first floor lobby was always comfortable. Perhaps the hallway A/C was broken. Either way, the heat from the hallway did not affect our room and I still highly recommend this hotel.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Your review was so nice- thanks alot
Yes we did have a problem with hallways ac unit- but gladly- the problem
has been resolved.
Please come back to see us should you be in the area
The manager was suberb. She showed me the room prior to booking, helped with my mother who had just lost her husband 3 wks prior and my mother has ovarian cancer. She was so sweet to my 4 yr old son. Always asked how my mom was and even gave my son a pack of M&M's. She also offered help with breakfast for my son and mom, would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Your manager is definitely a keeper, one of the nicest people we have ever met and went above and beyond the call of duty.
Thank you for a wonderful stay
Thanks so much for the rave review- I do hope you come back to visit us should
you be in the Columbia area again.
