My colleague and I stayed here on a Saturday night, after working all day. Unfortunately there was a mix-up with the reservation and there was only one bed in the room. I guess all the two-bed rooms were taken (we arrived around 10 p.m.) so they switched us to a suite on the 5th floor with a king bed & sofa bed. Not ideal, but we made do.
Be advised the sofa (pullout) bed is like sleeping on springs with a sheet... there is no discernible mattress pad. However, the king bed was quite comfortable.
The TV and Wi-Fi worked well and we enjoyed having a big desk in the room. The bathroom was reasonably spacious and had nice, upgraded complimentary toiletries. The showerhead has rotating "massage" options.
One of the best things about this hotel, in my opinion, is the impressive complimentary breakfast, which is served until 10 a.m. on weekends. The buffet includes: mini-omelettes, sausage patties, oatmeal, yogurt, cold cereals, oranges, bananas, apples, juices, fresh muffins, Belgian waffle maker, bagels and some things I'm sure I'm forgetting.
To be honest, not all of the food is wonderful, but you shouldn't have any trouble finding at least a few things to please your palate. My buddy didn't care for the pre-made oatmeal and I thought the mini-omelettes were just "okay"... not great, but not bad. The coffee on the other hand, is some of the best I've had in a hotel... not weak, like most lodging facilities.
The breakfast area is spacious and comfortable, and there is a big screen TV showing either news during the week, or sports on the weekends.
The hotel has a fitness room and indoor pool located near the lobby. I didn't make use of them, but I noticed a few guests did.
The hotel is owned by Liberty University, and there's a sign over the front desk in the lobby announcing this fact. The campus is just down the road and I'm guessing there are at least some students included among Wingate's very friendly staff.
Next time I'm passing through Lynchburg, I'll definitely consider staying at this facility again... mainly for the refreshing breakfast!
