We were staying at Wingate due to a teacher conference at USF. There were other options just as close and within same price range. I had read mixed reviews, but since it was not a leisure trip we decided on Wingate since it offered shuttle, wifi and breakfast. After arriving and seeing the two hotels next door we released we...

First the good: The beds are supremely comfortable. It's been a long time since I have gotten a good night's sleep on a bed of such quality. Secondly, the location being as close to Busch Gardens (and other attractions) is fantastic. The driver of the shuttle to and from were wonderful as well. The bad: Arriving on a Friday afternoon,...

I stayed here for a large family trip. With our entire party staying at the hotel under one group name it was to assume that we would be placed as close as possible. Understanding that it is not possible to accomodate everyone on the same floor we were taken by surprise to find that we were spread out through out... More

Stayed there with the whole family to spenden some time in nearby Busch Gardens. Whilst a refurbishment of the room we used seems appropriate (stains on the carpet, very noisy AC) staff was great. Don't expect too from the breakfast, but the offer is overall reasonably priced. Would return when in town.

I was immediately impressed at check-in. The front desk staff was very pleasant and accommodating. He was able to place us in a room despite us being an hour early for check-in. Things went a little downhill from there. First, the Jacuzzi was out of order due to a chemical imbalance. Next, the elevators were out of order because the... More

We stayed for 3 days 2 nights latter part of June. Great location, near USF - within walking distance - our grandson walked over twice!!! We requested the 1st floor, no problem, the room itself had the one king size bed (perfect). TV, fridge, coffee for a.m. and the Jacuzzi was just around the corner from our door. Sweet! They... More

Our trip to Tampa was a last minute thing. We decided on a Monday to drive there on Tuesday and stay a couple days. I found this hotel using Tripadvisor (as i always do), and i was not disappointed. From the moment i made the reservations on the phone, the customer service was excellent. When we arrived, we were greeted... More
