Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Clean rooms with microwaves (some with kitchenettes)
  • Convenient access to the airport with free shuttle service
  • Large outdoor pool area, and indoor Jacuzzi
  • Free parking and free Wi-Fi
  • Fitness center, though small with basic equipment

Cons

  • Bland, generic rooms with dinged furniture, cheap bedding, and tacky fixtures
  • Small breakfast area can get overrun with guests
  • Nothing in the surrounding area except gas stations and a laundromat
  • Surrounding neighborhood is notorious for vehicle break-ins

Bottom Line

It's hard to imagine why anyone other than business travelers would want to stay at the Wingate by Wyndham. Convenient access to the airport aside, the hotel puts little effort into creating an inviting ambiance. Rooms look generic and dated, as they come with dinged wood furniture, tacky gold lamps and curtains, and wall trimmings that look like they're straight out of the '90s. Despite the rooms' cleanliness and outdoor pool, the location makes this a much harder seller than any other mid-level hotel in Uptown.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a remote area near Charlotte Douglas International Airport

The Wingate by Wyndham Charlotte Airport is just as advertised, located minutes away from Charlotte Douglas Airport in Pawtuckett. The area is home to little more other than gas stations, and reaching Uptown will require a car or taxi. The hotel does offer free shuttle service to the airport every half hour, however.

West of Uptown Charlotte, Pawtuckett is a small area with few sites or museums. There's not much more than a golf course nearby, but most visitors to Pawtucket stay in the area due to its proximity to the airport and Uptown Charlotte.

  • 8-minute drive to Charlotte/Douglas International Airport
  • 8-minute drive to the Pawtucket Golf Course
  • 11-minute drive to the Bank of America Stadium
  • 12-minute drive to the Charlotte Convention Center
  • 12-minute drive to the NASCAR Hall of Fame
  • 13-minute drive to Uptown Charlotte
  • 13-minute drive to the Time Warner Cable Arena, home to the NBA Charlotte Bobcats
  • 15-minute drive to the Historic Fourth Ward Park

 Bottom Line

It's hard to imagine why anyone other than business travelers would want to stay at the Wingate by Wyndham. Convenient access to the airport aside, the hotel puts little effort into creating an inviting ambiance.
