- Free Wifi
I checked into this hotel today... the room is nice and staff are friendly. Unfortunately, this is not good enough for business travel. I also require easy access to meals, a lounge, a pool, and, most importantly, access to high speed internet.
On this last point, the hotel offers wither 256 kb or 512kb "high speed" service.... seriously, you have choice. This does not qualify as high speed in 2013 and it is making it impossible to do work.
Oh... there is no pool, no lounge, and only a chineese buffet restaurant onsite. Yuck.
Dear Chris B.
Thank you for sharing your comments about your recent stay with us. Please know that we have been addressing our internet service for the past few months, and since your stay with us, our internet service has been improved significantly and we are continuing to increase our bandwidth even more.
I am sorry that you were under the impression that the hotel featured a pool or lounge, we don't believe that these amenities are offered on the website where you booked, however will double check to ensure that we are portrayed accurately.
Thank you again for sharing your valuable feedback.

I choose Wingate as it was so near to Stc bus station which made my travel n stay stressless n peaceful. Basically its a 3 star hotel with great location & i wanted the top floor but since it was already occupied so opted for 5th floor which was not a bad choice for me. The hotel is huge from inside compare to other hotels. I was offered family n friends discountes rate which was 89.99 per night which was a bit expensive but worth spending. I stayed in room 502 it offered me 2 queen size beds & room offered a huge bathroom which really impressed me. Here are the positive n negative of this hotel
The hotel is 3 star but in terms of cleaniness it match the standards of 5 star. I myself work in hotel at front desk but the hotel is way clean as its jus 3 years old but still a definite eye catcher in terms of cleaniness.
The beds our way comfortable specially for me i like hard beds to sleep on.
Very comfy pillows
Huge bathroom which really impressed me & very clean
Friendly front desk staff
Noiseless sleep which i always look forward too
Lamps in the room are very easy to access from the beds
Remote with lights was fun to use tv in a dark room
The internet is terrible in this hotel. I was thier for my test in Siast so i need high speed wifi, but its keeps on disconnecting & the speed was way low
The vent in the bathroom was totally black which really disappointed me.
The size of tv was small as compare to size of room
Also they need to improve a bit on breakfast
Overall i enjoyed my stay in Wingate but if internet would have not been issue this hotel ticks all 5 on 5 for me.
Dear Ally H,

We pride ourselves in offering our guests the best experience with regards to service, cleanliness and comfort. These attributes have helped us to acheive wonderful recognition from Wingate Hotels by being named the 2012 Wingate by Wyndham Hotel of the year.
With respect to the concern regarding the internet please know that this past month we have been working on improving our internet significantly by installing a new server, a second modem and changing our internet service provider resulting in better internet bandwith and speed. But we aren't stopping there, we are going to continue improving our internet by looking at an entire new system which we anticipate being fully installed within the next few months.
Again thank you for choosing the Wingate by Wyndham Regina.

This was a nice hotel hotel for what it was and gave us good value. The rooms were a good size. Typical furnishing for a economy hotel but comfortable. The bed was pretty good. The room was clean . The staff were excellent, welcoming and kind. The price included a great breakfast. Even for picky eaters there was a little something for everyone. I made fresh waffles every morning. Fun and different and I didn't have to clean up the mess.I saved a hard boiled egg and apple for lunch. There is a chinese buffet attached to the hotel which is good value and convenient. On the whole it was a good stay. The only problem was noise. The stay would have been a disaster if we had had party people next door. We could hear every word spoken in the next room but fortunately our neighbours settled quickly and did not keep us awake. So do not accept a room with connecting doors because there is no sound proofing and you will hear every little sound from next door…tv, talking, nd a few other things I would rather not talk about here…..
