Not bad

Hotel is very close to Universal. They also have a free shuttle that will drop you off and pick you up from Universal,which will save you some $ on parking. Your also within walking distance of three restaurants and not too far from Wal-Mart. My only gripes are ,breakfast was just par and for some reason quite a few of the card locks di not work.

Great location. Everything is close by-Universal Studios, restaurants, shopping. My only complaint was that the drain in the shower was slow.

Thanksgiving Stay

We stayed at this hotel over the Thanksgiving holiday. The location was great - easy access from I-4, easy to get to Universal Studios, but without all the noise and congestion of International Drive. Room was clean and comfy. The free continental breakfast was fair.

Inexpensive

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

Almost perfect for the price

I was very pleasantly surprised checking in here. I am very particular when it comes to hotels but in this economy, you have to look for better deals. For the area, close to everything especially if you know your way around, the price couldn't be beat. It was nice and clean, the room was large and had everything you need including the mini fridge and microwave. Great coffee pods and comfy beds. The only thing I had a problem with at all was the air conditioner, it would stay on all day but at night it would turn off and on. When it was off the room got warm for a bit and for me that is a problem. I need an arctic room to sleep in. It's an aging lady thing. I would recommend this place to anyone who doesn't have to sleep in Alaska.

For food, this place is great. Just east on Kirkman you have Tijuana flats or a little further up on Kirkman; you get the best soul food I have had since my childhood days in Georgia. Check out Mama Nems, line can be long to get in, but totally worth it.

Nice stay!

Our overall stay was good. The staff was friendly, rooms were clean although the TV was a bit old. Internet connectivity was good. They could improve on breakfast. We stayed there for 4 days and after 2 days, we got kind of bored with the breakfast- same items being served everyday.

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.
