“4 night stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

This is a lovely clean hotel. The front desk staff are very polite and helpful, as were all the other staff we met and spoke to. Only dissapointment was the breakfast. When we booked online the information stated on the booking website said it was a complimentary 40 piece hot breakfast, but on arrival it was explained that it was a 'enhanced continental' breakfast. This was not advertised that way. Breakfast was ok, but when I'm expecting a full hot breakfast menu to choose from it's very dissapointing, and honestly couldn't find 40+ items anyway (unless you include Butter,Jam,Milk etc). Bed a bit to soft for me but still slept ok. Overall the hotel is very nice and I would certainly stay there again.

Thank you Colin M for your kind words about the staff and your time here. I also appreciate the honest feedback on your experience with our breakfast. We offer a wide variety of items, but we understand the need to continue to adapt and do everything can to improve the guest experience. We look forward to seeing you again next time you are in Tampa.

We stayed here for one night but were allowed an early check in because we were visiting adventure island and Busch gardens over 2 days. A shuttle was available straight away for us. We received a call from the front desk to make sure our room was okay. Then in the evening we had no car and restaurants were far away so the kind staff let us have a shuttle (this comes at a cost I do believe) we visited chillis which is actually a 15 min walk up the road and there is a cvs store opposite if you need it. The only issue was our room was right outside were the cleaning staff are in the morning and my other half was woken up at 6.30am. We had use of the gym bar and swimming facilities. The breakfast was great, waffles, fruit, waffles, juices, eggs and breakfast burgers. Hot drinks also. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend staying. The staff are so lovely and the hotel spotlessly clean.

Thank you Rosebuddd for taking the time to write a review on your stay with us. I am thrilled to read that our staff was able to help you with an early check in and prompt shuttle service. Our front desk staff does a tremendous job of ensuring that every stay starts out with a good experience. I am very sorry about the early hour in which the cleaning staff started. I have spoken with the executive housekeeper to ensure they do not start until 8am, so that our guest can enjoy their sleep. Thank you again for your kind words and we looking forward to seeing you next time you are in Tampa.

We've stayed here before and it was okay, but this time the beds were TERRIBLE and we didn't sleep all night. They apologized when we arrived because they only had double size beds, not queen. We didn't think that would matter at all, but apparently those are the old beds...lumpy!

Room Tip: Room 304 had 2 double beds, not queen size...avoid the double beds!

Thank you Betty B for your review. It is with review like yours that we are able to make adjustments and ensure that problems only happen once. I am terribly sorry that your beds were not as comfortable as they should have been and we here understand the key point of a hotel is a comfortable nights sleep. I have informed my maintenance team and they are inspecting the maintenance as I type. I hope you will give another chance in the future. I assure you that we will get you a room with one of our cloud like mattresses.

We arrived several hours before our scheduled check in. The front desk checked us in with no problems. The property was very clean & the staff was extremely friendly. Our room was on the first floor, which worried me because of all the foot traffic. However once inside our room we never noticed any noise in the hallways. Our room was very clean & roomy. Each morning between the hours of 6-10 breakfast was available. (Free to guests) Plenty of choices, whether you wanted a hot meal or cold meal it was there for the taking. Everything we tried was good. Our experience at Wingate was very good, we'll definitely stay there again.

Thank you travelinmama124 for your review. I find there is nothing better than arriving to a hotel and being able to check-in right away. It allows you to check that off the list and great right to enjoying your stay. We try our best to accommodate our early arrivals if our occupancy the night before permits.

I am also thrilled that you found your room to be quiet and comfortable as these are the keys to any hotel room. Our rooms are helped by being slightly larger than most standard hotel rooms and having a great seal on the door. This allows our guests to enjoy their peace and quiet are night and be well rested for our breakfast in the morning.

We hope to see you again next time you are in town.
