“Earlier reviews are right on”
Reviewed 11 May 2008

Just checked in today and wanted to affirm that previous reviews about this being a good deal are a-ok. It's NOT on the beach, which is a deal breaker for some people, but if you're OK driving down the street one mile to the public beach then this is a great deal. My room is bigger than usual, clean with small frig and microwave. Front desk clerk is friendly and helpful. Grocery is across the street ...OMG, today was Sunday and the Winn Dixie also sells wine, with liquor next door, and it's all sold on Sunday!! This is exciting for a Memphian:-)

Stayed for 3 nights at this great hotel. Well and nevertheless quietly located next to Hwy 98. Free parking.

Spacious rooms, clean hotel and rooms, good hot breakfast. Good and clean amenities (outdoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, small fitness center). Free daily newspaper (USA today). Supermarkets and Walgreens within walking distance. Outlet center some minutes to drive. Great beaches nearby.

Thanks to the helpful and professional acting front desk staff!

Favor Destin over Fort Walton - Destin is the better choice at all!

I have stayed at the Wingate 3 times within the past two years. I love it. The rooms are very nice. I love the quiet area where the hotel is located. The management has been very nice each time we have visited. The continental breakfast is remarkable and certainly filling. It beats going down to IHOP and spending $35.00-$40.00 for basically the same thing. I really enjoy eating at IHOP but the Wingate's breakfast is just as good. My husband and I plan to visit again in December for a wedding. We just may end up back at the Wingate Inn for our stay.

Was there for a week in Sept, and had an excellent stay. It's in a great location, close to everything, and since it's on a dead-end streed, it's also very quiet. This rooms are nice, but not luxury. They have a nice refrigerator, microwave, and free high-speed internet. The staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our week, and plan to come back again next year.

Very disappointed with the Wingate after reading all of the positive reviews. Checked in, hotel had overbooked us and put us in a King when we booked a Suite, without even telling us before we got to the room. Manager comped the 1st night and moved us to Suite the next day. Was able to move to Suite following afternoon, which was great, nice and spacious. Problem was that the genius who built this hotel put the Suite up against the elevator shaft, so when we attempted to go to bed at 11pm, the entire bed BUZZED horrendously since it shared a wall with the elevators. Getting annoyed with this place, we called and asked to switch rooms. No suite was available, so we moved to a king room. After our 3rd move in 1 day, we find a SCORPION on the ceiling. Manager offered to comp the room and move us again, but we didn't want free subpar rooms, we wanted to enjoy our vacation without endless problems. So mad at this point, we left at 12am and luckily found a vacancy elsewhere.
Maybe we had extremely bad luck, but overall we did not have a good experience whatsoever. We did appreciate the staff's willingness to help, but after a point it wasn't worth it to stay anymore.

Reviewed 27 July 2007

used an 800# off a savings card i carry with me and rep. rapidly helped me find a hotel to check in immediately. i had already researched this wingate in the days prior to my trip but didn't know until that night that are trip would have us stay in Destin so i was happy to find out our hotel was the Wingate. booked over the phone and had superfast check in and out. desk staff was friendly and even asked what floor a preferred to be on! WOW and the continental bkfast was D-lish! went to the public beach, only a 5 minute drive (walking is an option if you dare to cross the very busy HWY98). hotel is right off the hwy but very quiet area. shopped at a nearby Target and didn't even need to get on the hwy... shopping center was right next door (also walking distance).
room was small but clean and cool! remote control didn't have batteries but kids also serve as channel changers! Complimentary Shampoo/Bath gel were better than any other hotel i've stayed at!
I was happy the room had a Mini-fridge, micro and coffe maker.
Price was higher than what i wanted to pay, but i blame the location. Destin is a beachy touristy place. I probably could've gotten a room for the same price at a beach front property but i didn't have the energy to look.

  • Liked — quiet area, near beach, free internet access, microwave/mini-fridge, cool AC
  • Disliked — pricey but i blame the location since its a tourist spot

Reviewed 15 June 2007

Me and my best friend stayed at the WIngate Inn toward the end of May because of the great reviews from other posters on here and the great price. The hotel itself is very nice and well kept and the location is great since its not on the main drag so its very quiet. This hotel is not on the beach and we knew that when we booked our rooms but the hotel is not that far from a state park that contains a great beach area that is worth the $4 dollar entrance. In fact, this beach area was far less crowded then the other areas of Destin and it is definitely kept up and looks amazing. Anway, the hotel was nice and the staff was friendly but the beds in this hotel have to be the worse ones ever. Me and my friend both agree and we are fairly easy to please. They were so lumpy and just didnt provide a great nights sleep. Hopefully this was just the beds in our room? We also had problems with the cleaning staff wanting to skip our room each day and would have to call to get it cleaned but this was resolved after the second day. Other than that, the rooms are very well kept and clean and so is the rest of the hotel.

Overall, the hotel is a great deal compared to the other hotels around Destin of the same level. Just make sure to remember this is not on the beach but not that far from great beach areas and it's just a minute drive away. Also, make sure to check the beds before getting settled in the room. Other than that, not a bad place to stay at all.

  • Liked — Privacy and quiet location, clean and modern building, close proximity to everything
