We booked this using Travelocity's "Top Secret Hotels" feature and we weren't disappointed. They were very accommodating with what kinds of beds/ what floor we wanted when we checked in- something you're not guaranteed when bidding or booking "blindly." They had a great breakfast- waffles, sausage, eggs, yogurt, etc. Spacious room. My only complaint would be that the bed wiggled... More

This place looked nice and we signed up for two weeks. BIG MISTAKE!! Our toiletries were missing, we had to bring valuables and keep them locked in the car each day. Staff was never friendly, wouldn't even say hello, they just mumbled something. When we tried to discuss our concerns it was as if no one spoke our language. They... More

This hotel has a biker bar next door which is great if you like tatoos, but awful if you want to sleep at night. We drove up to find police at the entrance and no less than 400 motorcyles at the biker bar adjacent to the property. If you like high crime and loud noise, stay here. Otherwise there are... More

Absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel. Not really near anything, but from what I saw, Clearwater is basically endless miles of indistinguishable malls anyway, so it probably doesn't matter. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean and quiet. Less than $80 on the weekend seemed reasonable. Decent breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the Wyndham for just one night before heading over to the Belleview Biltmore. This hotel seems off the beaten path if you don't know the area very well...which we didn't...but when we needed to go to some stores (like WalMart), we realized it was just a few blocks away. This hotel is tucked behind a restaurant but visible... More

actually going to wingate.com got us the best price available. This is exactly what the traveler like me needs a hotel that offers a lot of amenities without the large price. Everything was great and will also make plans to stay here again.

We decided to stay at the Wingate strictly for the location and positive reviews I read on the website. It was clean, the staff was very helpful and anything we asked for was delivered with a smile. The complimentatry breakfast was very good and they offered snacks, wine and beer on some weeknights. And best of all we got all... More

Making late plans to attend Gasparilla in Tampa, we had difficulty in finding a reasonably priced hotel, with good reviews and in a nice area. We thus opted in staying a bit outside of Tampa at this hotel. I have never had a bad experience at a Wingate, and decided it was worth the drive. As usual, the hotel was... More

Be warned that the problems encountered at this hotel were mainly due to other / previous guests... Wingate Clearwater is not bad for typical traveler for business or leisure who just want a room and a decent free breakfast at a reasonable price. I would stay there again, but I would make sure to request a specific room. Our room... More

Good news: For the money over all it was ok, it was clean and the breakfast buffet was actually really good. Bad news: The staff was rude right from the beginning with a screw up with are room (not are fault) but all they wanted to do was argue about it instead of just SOLVING THE PROBLEM AND MAKING IT...
