A was a short two day visit to PC

Posted Aug 15, 2014
I Didn't spend too much time at the hotel, however the overall experience during my stay was quite good and the breakfast served was more than expected and was very good. The personnel were helpful and friendly and I would say professional in their duties. The outside entrance needed some service/maintenance with stains and a little trash on the pavers...and the elevators floors could use a good cleaning...overall I was quite pleased with my accommodations.

place for a night

Posted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: Location was good, pool was useful.
Cons: Elevators, humid rooms and jets in the hot tub
Location: First time there. The mall and beach were close.
The room was very humid. The a/c was on the wall originally but we only had a under the window unit in our room. Our original room we could not even get in because the door was jammed, but we were given another room quickly. The room did have a slight odor like it had been wet inside and not cleaned all the way. The elevators have no a/c and ventilation, so it was quite uncomfortable to go up and down inside the elevators. The bathroom was nice and clean, so was the pool and eating areas. The hot tub did not turn on at all but the water was very warm.

Stay off the negative radar.

Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: Over all quiet and within good access to places.
Cons: Room had a strong odor every time I entered...not sure what that was about. Oil or replace the door locks.
Location: Panama City Beach
Continental breakfast was a treat, thank you. Opening doors was a problem...either didn't work or hard to open. Outside door from parking lot wasn't secure, no key needed even though the swiper was there. Staff were very courteous. Room had a strong odor every time I entered...not sure what that was about. Easy to adjust the temperature to whatever was desired. Over all quiet and within good access to places.

Poorly kept and managed hotel

Posted Jul 20, 2014
We booked this because of the packed holiday season. Only open option. Precious front desk clerk was only One on duty in the 4th of July. Very poor management decision. Yet she worked with grace and poise. Room was full of smoke, all common areas were really run down and dirty. Would not recommend it at all. The way an owner cares for his property and people is evidence of how he cares for his guests.

Convenient to shopping and restaurants

Posted Jun 1, 2014
Pros: Very clean and convenient for my needs.
I was only there overnight. Visiting with relatives. Checked in the room around midnight. The first room I was in the air conditioner did not work. The desk clerk was very gracious in changing me to another room with no other problems.

I always stay here when I'm in Panama City

Posted May 29, 2014
I travel to Panama City regularly for work and have stayed at Wingate every time since I found it. Some hotels in P City around the same price are much lower quality. The accommodations at Wingate are always clean and comfortable, and the wifi works. Great value for the price.

Consistently Clean. Convenient.

Posted May 13, 2014
Pros: The location is perfect for our needs.
Cons: Much of the upholstered furniture needs refurbishing or replacing. An oily looking chair or sofa isn't inviting.
Location: Mall -2 miles & several chain resturants. Downtown Panama City -10 minutes w/traffic for junk/antique shopping. St. Andrew's -5 miles marina & food.
We have been staying at this Wingate three or four times a year when visiting friends and family in Panama City for several years now. It's beginning to show some wear and tear but is well maintained. The rooms, bathrooms and beds have always been clean and fresh. It's time to replace some upholstered chairs in the rooms because they're looking soiled. I was disappointed that the coffee and water cups supplied in the room this visit were unwrapped styrofoam. While I don't want glass cups, I do want the paper or styrofoam cups individually wrapped/sealed for obvious reasons. The hotel is located far enough off the beaten path that noise has never been a problem yet it's near food and shopping and only about a 30 minute drive from the beach if that's your destination. The breakfast is standard fare that I never cared for anyway but you can kill the pain with a bagel & coffee. The staff is always pleasant and professional. We'll continue to stay here when in Panama City/Lynn Haven as long as it's well maintained and reasonably priced.
