“Best hotel we've been to, hands down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2011

The hotel was easy to find just off the Interstate in a quiet but safe location. The staff was excellent, friendly and professional. Breakfast was plentiful with choices between hot or cold food. The swimming pool area was very clean. The Sales Manager Pam Kalaczymski was a great help in initially getting the room but also was very knowledgable about the area inplaces to go or places to visit. I would highly recommend this hotel to friends and family and will definitely stay here again in the future.

We stayed at the Wyndham from June 16-20. The location was perfect for our situation - travelling between Sarasota, Bradenton, Tampa and Orlando. It is about a half hour away from the beautiful beaches on the gulf.
The rooms were spacious and accommodated the three of us well! The rooms were clean, and I have no complaints!
Breakfast was nice, just standard continental breakfast spread. Was always stocked between 6-10.
We didn't have many encounters with staff, but the ones we did were very friendly.

Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone needing to be in the area!

I had really been looking forward to this visit to one of my favorite areas of Florida, and staying in the number one trip advisor rated hotel. Well, the title says it all.....I booked 4 nights....and stayed one. Upon arrival, the desk clerk was the gentleman who has received rave reviews in previous posts on this site.....I can only say that he seemed 'tired' and ready to go home. The room and bath were clean (always a plus) and it was not until I put my head down on the bed pillow to go to sleep, that a a very LOUD hum from some sort of machinery made sleep throuthout the night almost impossible. Also, the quote "Hi-Speed" is anything but hi-speed....althought this may be the problem of the internet supplier. Again, the breakfast which has received rave reviews on previous post is just the basic 'continental plus' now available in most mid priced motel/hotel locations.....and I speak from experience, spending at least 100 nights a year on hotels/motels. At this point, I decided to look elsewhere to spend the remaining 3 nights of my brief vacation elsewhere in more enjoyable surroundings.. Sorry Wingate.....I was less than impressed. Oh, by the way.....this inn is overpriced for the off season in Florida.

Had a standard room with two queen beds. Room is larger than standard rooms at other hotels. Very comfortable for three people. Room and bathroom were extremely clean. Hotel was very quiet. Enjoyed our stay. Free parking, free wireless internet in room and free breakfast. Dairy Queen, Chick-fil-A, Crispers and other restaurants nearby.

My husband and I stayed at the Wingate during the first week of May. We had stayed at several hotels during our two week road trip from Chicago, but this hotel topped our list. It was extremly clean, quiet and comfortable......all of which was made better because of Michael at the front desk. We will certainly be back.....

My stay at Wingate Bradenton was truly a pleasure. The hotel has been recently built but it still has a cozy feel inside. The rooms are very nice and include a 32 inch LCD TV with DirectTV hooked up. Location is great too because you do not hear the road noise at all and have quick access to highways. The staff is very friendly and helpful- I was interviewing at LECOM and was not aware of the student discount and they pointed that out to me unsolicited. This is a top-notch hotel at a very reasonable price. Would definitely come here again!

Our family chose to stay here because of the great reviews, and we were not disappointed. The staff always treated us as guests rather than customers, whether we inquired about local attractions or just needed extra towels! The rooms were modern and clean, and it was always nice to have breakfast waiting for us before beginning the day's activities. We would certainly stay again!
