“Not for business travelers or some families”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

This was my hotel of choice for 18-months during a long-term business assignment in the area. After the Holiday Inn Express hotels were built nearby (both Bridgeport and Fairmont), this hotel cannot compare and my rating of poor is generous. First, let me positively state that the staff at this Wingate is polite and professional. They have always treated me (and their other guests) very well. I will not say anything negative about the staff. I would also say that this hotel seems to have good mattresses, pillows, linens, towels, and showers - and you will enjoy a good night's sleep and endless hot water for the perfect shower. If these positives meet your needs - then this hotel will be fine for you.

The rating of poor is specific to issues that do not serve business travelers (and some families) effectively. The wired and wireless Internet service is throttled for each device you connect; with a maximum speed of 384k bps at best and when the hotel is full (which is most of the time because of the conference center), the network traffic brings everything to a halt.

The rooms have been upgraded with HDTV, but NO HD CONTENT is available to watch. Additionally, Wingate's LodgeNet system DOES NOT ALLOW you to attach your HDMI devices (computers, tablets, game consoles) even though the HDTV has these input ports available. If you are a family and you bring your children's game consoles on trips with you, don't plan to try to connect them to the HDTV in your hotel room. If you are a business traveler and you like to work at your desk or relax in the armchair in your room --- while watching TV, you will be unable to do so - because the HDTV is pushed back into an armoire that cannot be turned unless you move the furniture around in your room to compensate.

The desk chairs are low quality chairs and do not provide support needed for extended times at the desk/laptop. The microwave and refrigerator in the room is the cheapest quality that money can buy.

They do allow smoking on certain floors, but in the rooms where smoking is not allowed - people have abused the rule and this Wingate does not do a very good job of masking the problem. If you suffer from asthma, you do not want one of these rooms.

The included breakfast is fine. This is not Embassy Suites, so don't expect omelettes cooked to order. However, they do have a reasonable selection of both healthy and cholesterol-killer options. You will enjoy their breakfast. The pool and hot tub are decent. If the hotel is full, you won't want to go near it. The pool is very small in comparison to other hotels in the area and it can become uncomfortably crowded when a lot of families are in the hotel.

As a regular business traveler to the area, I recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Bridgeport or Fairmont.

We were in Bridgeport as grandparents of the one of the Hedgesville ball players. Our team got several rain outs which meant that we were spending a lot more time in the hotel than normal. The staff went out of their way to accommodate the boys, especially by baking many more cookies than they usually would have to. The lady that prepared the breakfast each morning was like a team mom to all the kids and was very personable to each family.

Spent two nights and the location was well-suited for my needs.
Check in was quick and efficient. Room size is good.
Beds a bit uncomfortable and we woke up with back aches. Went to the hot tub hoping to alleviate the sore muscles. Hot tub needed more water so the jets were spewing water up like a water feature meaning the water sprayed in our face and it was a bit like being inside a washing machine.
Went to breakfast – nice variety of food including both hot and cold. Staff had difficult time keeping coffee made so we went to nearby gas station for coffee.
Bathroom in need of attention. Carpet at threshold is torn and there are exposed nails or tacks. Caulking around bathroom sink/mirror in bad condition.

This is was a great place to stay. It is so convenient to everything around the Bridgeport/Clarksburg area that nothing is more than 10 minutes away. The staff was very welcoming and caring, answering any questions I had about the area or where to try for dinner.

As with many hotels today, they have eco-friendly lights in the bathroom, and if you need it longer than the time it is on, it is simply a matter of turning it off and then back on; a point very clearly made on check-in paper and in room, which another reviewer must have ignored.

This was a great place to stay, and I will recommend it to anyone, and will definitely stay there again if I am in the area.

Stayed at this hotel a few years ago when it was just opening. The area has taken off and it is a huge convention center set up now. The hotel is typical upscale Wyndam property. The staff was great an registration and I was given a jacuzzi tub room with a king bed, microwave and frig. in a well proportioned room. It had a flat screen TV and a 2nd one in the jacuzzi alcove off the main bed area. Nice touch. The linens and towels were first rate. The A/C worked great and despite 98 degree heat I was able to shut if off at bed time and the room stayed comfortable [2nd floor] without the need to re-start it during the night. Bed was excellent and there were lots of pillows. It also had a recliner and ottoman. I did not have a chance to sample the breakfast as I was on the road by 0530 as they were setting up. Easy on and off the I-79. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: End room I had came with a Jacuzzi hot tub.
