Had to stay at this hotel last minute when the Flint airport cancelled my flight to Chicago due to weather (after delaying for HOURS!)

The Wingate in Grand Blanc is a nice hotel, up to date with good general amenities offered. This is good for business or family travel, with a pool and hot tub onsite (although the only reason this property did not get a 5 star rating from me is the OFFENSIVE chlorine level in the hot tub/pool area...I witnessed several people choking/coughing from it, and I couldn't BREATHE when I sat in the hot tub, and could barely keep my eyes open. The pool was almost the same way, so I left the pool facility shortly after entering as I feared for my health. I let the front desk attendant know (Christine) but she seemed frazzled and hurried.

She was the same attendant that checked me in, and seemed overwhelmed with the amount of calls that were coming in, and people trying to check in (Around 7:30 PM at night). I would say she was not the friendliest desk attendant, but perhaps she was having a stressful day. I was surprised that there was no one else there to answer calls or help out, esp. with how busy the place was!

Anyhow, room was comfortable and clean, nicely decorated. Decent bathroom, although the door was awkwardly heavy and a bit difficult to close!

Breakfast was fine, you could make mini waffles, there was hot meat and eggs, terrible hashbrowns, cereal, pastries, and other typical hotel breakfast buffet items. Heavy on carbs, but filling. Coffee was pretty weak...typical for hotel chains. Coffee in the room was not much better. Maybe I'm just a coffee snob ;)

In a pinch, I would stay here again...the rate was VERY reasonable for a weeknight ($105 before tax, $120 after tax for a king size room). Walking distance to Applebees, but I don't know much else about the area as I was basically here for 12 hours before heading back to the airport.

Travel 9 Taxi was a nice cab company in the area that I'd recommend if you need a lift to and from the airport. There IS a Taxi area at the Flint airport, but there were no cabs waiting so I ended up Googling taxis and calling Travel 9. The rate from the airport to this hotel was $22.

Nice location.In town from out of state for funeral. Stained sheets, looked like wet bed from animal or child. 2 days in a row, no clean towels or emptied garbage. Night desk person awful. Day desk person and housekeeping manager were great trying to fix problems.

I only stayed over night due to a late flight, but was very pleased with the hotel. My room was clean and comfortable. The internet was easy to log into. Breakfast was truly continental and enjoyable. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful.

Nice property, staff friendly and professional. The breakfast was great and attendant kept everything stocked and clean. The cleaning service was top notch.It would have been perfect if pool and spa would have worked.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our pool and spa had a couple of maintenance issues but was only down for a short time. I'm sorry this affected your stay with us.

Pool was back open..hot tub not working..not overly impressed with remodeling of pool area..rooms were updated from our stay last year..very noisy facility..breakfast was processed foods, cereal and a few bananas..was appalled to see guests in eating area barefoot..front desk and kitchen staff aware of problem but nothing was said to guest..was glad to see one employee try to control the "mob" mentality of some guests .
