Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cap Horn Malestroit
I booked the hotel over the internet, and boy was I positively surprised! For the money, this was the best bargan! Elegant rooms, all the amenities you could ask for. Very assistive staff. Easy airport access and located right next to the expressway to all the hot spots. Meals were within walking distance.
Excellent Hotel, Excellent Value
Stayed here on Priceline bid, free shuttle pick up was in about 15 minutes after calling, room was extremely clean and large, furniture looked new (remodelled?), even bed spreads seemed new. Microwave, fridge, coffee maker. Desk service was efficient, polite & friendly. Free breakfast had good selection. Will definitely stay here again.
Great value for the money
Nicely appointed hotel with all the amenities. If you put in an offer price of $45-50 on Priceline for a hotel near the Orlando Airport, you often can either get this hotel, the Holiday Inn Select Orlando Airport, or Sheraton Suites Orlando Airport. I've stayed at all of them, and you can't go wrong either way for the price and convenience.
Although I may have bid too much on this property on Priceline ($45 a night, which could have gotten me a 3* had I been more patient), I'm really quite pleased with my Wingate Inn experience!!!
The rooms are quite large for a one room, and rather luxurious, using a rich deep maroon and gold color theme. The carpets are thick and very cozy on the bare footsies. There's a wee microwave and mini fridge and a nice big bathroom. The TV is high tech in appearance and set into a fancy wood console with swinging doors to hide it away. The view out the back of the hotel is kind of woodsy and rural, yet there are several upper middle end chain restaurants within walking distance. It's close to the airport, yet I haven't heard a single plane go overhead.
The front desk person was very nice, and handy as well; when the lock on my door wouldn't work, he came right up and replaced a lost screw, apologizing for the whole 2 minutes it took to repair the crazy thing.
There's a little store with microvable food and various goodies in the lobby, a pool and hot tub I haven't tried out, and a nice little laundry room with modern & efficient washers and driers.
After spending a week in one of the nastier Extended Stay America properties (in North Charleston SC), the Wingate seems like a little slice o heaven!
Don't even think of sleeping in...
I was in line to check out of this hotel and decided to write my review before leaving the property. This is definitely not a three star hotel, but could possibly be a decent two star. The promised pool is tiny and in the shadiest corner of the building--why bother. Housekeeping insistently woke every guest at 8:00am, 8:40am, 9:am...you get it. Beds old, pillows flat, linens dingy...definintely not a three star property. Stick with Marriott, Hyatt, Sheraton Suites if you have to be near the airport.
My family and friends enjoyed this hotel tremendously! Check-in went wonderfully. We arrived early since we had just returned from a cruise and had no problems with check-in. The staff was very helpful.
Our only complaint is that we were only staying one night.
Will definitely stay here again when in Orlando.
Grand Opening of a very nice hotel
Spent one night at the Wingate between travelling in to Orlando from
the West Coast and getting on a cruise ship at Canaveral. Booked through Priceline and it was very inexpensive but a wonderful hotel.
Complementary shuttle arrived and returned us to the airport promptly, room was very comfortable, new decor, pleasant. Complementary breakfast buffet was outstanding. Also enjoyed the hot tub and fitness center.
The staff was friendly and made us feel welcome.
I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.
Not bad at all!
My husband and I stayed at the Wingate for 5 nights - Christmas Day until the 30th. I must say that we really enjoyed our stay! There are some pros and cons to staying at the Wingate, and they are listed below:
PROS: close proximity to the airport (10 minute drive, no tolls), large rooms, fridge and microwave, pleasant burgandy decorum (not cheesy pink and green colors!), comfortable king-sized bed, bountiful continental breakfast, 24-hour free coffee, juice, and water (well received after long days and nights!), free internet access, fitness center, friendly staff
CONS: about 20 minutes from the major attractions (Disney, Wet N Wild, etc.), thin walls (a few times, we heard the people next door), parking lot was completely filled at night
We commented that if we did stay in Orlando again, we would probably try to stay at a Disney resort for convenience; however, if all Wingates are like the one we stayed at, I will definitely look this hotel up in the future!
FYI: Disney World at Christmas time is super-crowded, so you must have a plan. FASTPASS! This was a lifesaver for us. Normally, you are only allowed to get two fastpasses every two hours with your admission card. Luckily for us, we had a voucher to visit MK (Westgate tour) and the computers were down at Disney; therefore, we weren't able to get admission tickets. The main gate attendents told us to show our voucher to the fast pass attendents at the various rides. Because each attendent at the ride was unaware of what fast passes we had, we racked up on several passes! The most we waited in any line was 12 minutes (while others waited for 120!). I told my husband that next time, we would either see if there is some sort of special pass that allows you to get as many fast passes as you like, or, fork over the $50 and buy another ticket (we only paid $12.50 for ours through the timeshare!).
Pretty good for the money...
Hotel was pleasantly surprising...very clean, property seemed new. My infant daughter and I spent the night here on Sunday, November 7, 2004 by ourselves. The room was very big! Had a microwave, and refridgerator! There was even a heavy continental breakfast included (BONUS!) I was able to get juice and fresh fruit for my daughter, but there was also cereal, make your own waffles bar, and assorted pastries.
Staff was pleasant. Room was non-smoking but had a faint odor that seemed more stale than anything. I had to keep the a/c on very cold and dress warmly because then you could not smell anything. It was extremely quiet, and even the flight crew that shared the airport shuttle with me in the a.m. commented on how quiet the hotel was (the parking lot was full).
There was a business center with free internet access, a gym, pool, and walking distance to half a dozen restaurants across the street (ie. IHOP, Denny's, Chili's, Ruby Tuesday's, and I can't recall what else), there was also a Walgreen's.
Would stay here again.
Stayed at this hotel because I had an early morning flight. Location is excellent, staff is friendly. Breakfast is good, room was clean. Only downside was that either the walls are quite thin, or my neighbors were quite loud - probably a combination of the two. Would stay again.

... That's the one I screamed myself hoarse on last Saturday.
YIKES!! It has started to rain. No, it has started to POUR!!! We have just gotten off the Escape from Gringott's ride and have found the exits blocked by people not wanting to go into the deluge. We step aside, open our handy-dandy ponchos and put them on; Jeff, who is wearing sandals slips them off and takes off his socks. (Yes, he was wearing socks with sandals but it doesn't ...

I've had a great day.I'm out with my amazing boss and our lovely Italian winemaker, tasting delicious wines with some of our customers both new and old. So I'm driving back home and Clean Bandit's "Rather Be" slowly comes on the radio. As I'm taking these turns and singing along, a flood of memories and thoughts flow by.
At first, I cry when I think about hearing this for the first time in Nancy. I ...

I dropped Gemma and Mum off at the Florida Mall for a full day of shopping, while we headed to Port Canaveral to the Kennedy Space Centre, stopping off on the way at Taco Bell for a typical American fast food experience.
