I don't normally stay at Wyndham properties, but this was a cheap buy with frequent flier miles. It was actually a little better than I expected - seemed newer, and the site is really nice on the edge of the manicured lawns of the University. It made for a comfortable, safe place to go for a run. Decor, finishes, and fixtures are not boutique-y, but they are tasteful, and everything was clean; plus it's a non-smoking property.
Wear and tear seems to be quickly setting in, so if management doesn't keep up it's going to deteriorate quickly. Cracks in the tile make mildew incubators, the TV remote buttons are barely working, lots of channels of static, and stains in the carpet are hard to ignore.
Breakfast is the usual array of carbs and processed "food," blah at best, but I don't have high expectations from American properties in the breakfast department.
Staff was excellent, and that's really key to me. I had called in the morning to inquire about early check-in, and I was given specific information about my options. When I arrived there wasn't record that the stay was pre-paid, but [wish I could remember her name!] was so helpful sorting it out.
There were a lot of recreational travelers and families there. I was on business, and the property was comfortable and functional for that... just had to tolerate hearing kids running up and down the halls and jumping off of beds for a while. Had it continued, I had confidence that a quick call to the front desk would have resolved it.
Based on this stay I wouldn't be so quick to rule out Wingates for future travel.
