All motel staff were VERY friendly and accomodating. Breakfast is above average! Double queen room was very nice for the price. Roomy size and plush towels. No complaints whatsoever!

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.

Better than expected

The accommodations were very nice. The room was clean and inviting; the bath facilities spacious. Staff was very willing to assist when needed and the complimentary breakfast was delicious with a variety of items to choose from.

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.

some good, some bad

Booked a King room and only had 2 double beds available "due to mechanical problems". When we arrived in room w/2 doubles, tried to call front desk but the phone didn't work. Breakfast was handy and staff was friendly.
