Pretty dumpy look/feel. Dark dingy and not a good smell when you walked in. Room okay but would not recommend.

Great sleep for a hotel needing some more TLC
The parking was convenient as was the location of the hotel to our event and downtown. The beds were great but the overall room presentation was degraded due to the need for renovation work of work ceilings showing past leakage. The latter contributed to the need to over perfume the rooms to mask other odors associated with the age impacts.

Hotel refused my form of payment, on top of the bathroom of my room was not clean and the hot breakfast was late.

The good. The person who checked us in was very pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. Interaction with employees was mostly good. The bad. All the windows in the lobby and breakfast area where very dirty, the hotel did not provide maid service during our stay. The tub/shower was not cleaned completely so it was a little slippery. For the cost of staying there I felt that they should provide some kind of shuttle service to and from the game. When I stayed in Atlanta the month before the Wingate there provided that at no charge. Instead they allowed an individual to advertise shuttle service that wasn’t really a shuttle as we were driven in an individual’s car. The bed was not comfortable at all. Overall very disappointing stay especially for the cost.

Underwhelming experience
The hotel is understaffed so even tho check in was at 3pm. We weren’t allowed in our room until 4pm-5pm. Once we were in the room, it smelled like cigarettes the whole time. They didn’t give us enough towels and sheets for everyone, but fortunately they gave us more at the front desk. The pool was closed and breakfast was nasty.
