A wonderful weekend trip!!

This was the honeymoon we were not able to take. The staff were friendly and helpful.The complimentary breakfast buffet was nice, and they had a good selection. We went to Universal Studios which was about a 20 minute walk. There were places to dine in the area. Overall we came to relax and we were able to do that.

Back to Basics in Orlando

Located near Universal Studios in Orlando, the Wingate Hotel stands above the rest of the crowd by doing everything right. The hotel is located off Kirkman Road and on a cul-de-sac that is hsrd to find unless you have a GPS.(Turn right by IHOP). The Wingate has a green attitude, a good, free, hot breakfast, WiFi, a microwave and refrig in each room. They have padding and grab bars in the tub and shower so you don't slip and fall. The front desk staff is knowledgable and will print out maps on Mapquest for you. The outdoor pool is small but is in the sun until it goes down. Parking is free and they have a shuttle to nearby locations including Universal which will save you $14/day.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Along Kirkman Road, there are many restaurants ranging from Burger King to Orlando Ale House to Golden Corral and Pizza. It's much less expensive than eating at the City Walk in Universal Studios.

Great service and clean rooms

Great hotel for the price. Excellent service and the young woman working the desk was H-O-T HOT and very nice! The facilities were very nice as was the continental breakfast. The only drawback is that the hotel was hard to find, but once we found it we were very happy. Would definitely stay there again.

Good location, good price, good value

The staff was friendly. Continental breakfast was good enough. You can have bagels, eggs (omelet), sausage or bacon, make waffles, and have pastries or fruit. The rooms were okay but I hate hotel windows that won't open. First day it was a bad smell and the air circulation was poor. From second day it was no smell but still not enough fresh air. They could at least make windows such a way that they open a few inches just to get some fresh air in. The housekeepers did a good job keeping the rooms clean. The hotel was within walking distance of several good little bars (Ale house) and restaurants and a Walgreens for snacks and drinks. The workout facility is really small with just a couple of machines and some free weights. There is an indoor jacuzzi and an outdoor pool. But the weather was very cold (50 - 60 degree) and I did not use it. It was a business trip, I was busy and did not go Universal Studio or other parks but Universal Studio is within walking distance from hotel. There is a shuttle to Universal but I never used it. Overall it was a good place to stay and good value for the money. I'd stay there again.

Went and stayed with a friend. It was a perfect location! Close enough to clubs downtown without being in the middle of it all.

Great location for Universal Studios

Everyone was very friendly and especially helpful when I left my phone charger in the room. The room was very clean and the bed very comfy. This hotel is within walking distance to Universal Studios if you don't feel like paying the outrageous price of parking at the park
