Although I wish the hot tub and pool stayed open until 10 PM, the overall stay for the price was fair. Breakfast was awesome.

I liked that they had an indoor pool. Did not like that the water was freezing. Also did not like the $250 cash deposit that was required upon check in.

We are glad that you enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We are sorry to hear that you found the pool freezing. It is set to the highest temperature based on Clarke County's regulations.

BEWARE if you live in or around Athens they treat you like you are a criminal. Require 250.00 CASH DEPOSIT NO CREDIT CARD ALLOWED FOR THIS. They do not say this when booking nor when i called the hotel to confirm. We only stayed here because of reviews that said it had been renovated. Although it smelled strongly of polyurethane they basically just painted and poly over hair and dirt. It was supposed to be a surprise for my husband but after an hour i finally called hin to rush over with the deposit money as the crap place they sent me to an atm at was not working. Really put bad damper on what was supposed to be a romantic night out. Heart shaped tub barely worked and have hot water turned down. Wyndham should be ashamed their name used to mean something but Holiday Inn better and more professional. Paid 122.00 in advance to be made to sit and wait for husband in lobby. Avoid this place they need much more work and to quit that stupid cash deposit requirement if you live in 30 mile radius. Wyndham Wingate you should be ashamed of this hotel carrying your name. Staff doesnt care and treats you like you are a criminal. Very very disappointed last time we ever stay there waste of money

We understand that the main issue with your stay was the required cash deposit at check in. According to our records, this is not the first time you have booked a room at our property. With that being said, the required cash deposit should have not come as a surprise since it has been part of our policy since we have been a Wyndham hotel!

Great Pet Friendly Hotel

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we needed a pet friendly hotel and this one was awesome! Great price and the staff were exceptional! The bathroom faucet in our original room was loose and leaking so we were immediately moved to a new room by the front desk manager. Room was spacious and clean with plenty of room for our family of four and our dog. Throughout our stay the staff were friendly and helpful, we’ll definitely stay here again next time we’re in Athens!
