“Clean, comfortable, quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2009

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 from one of their freeways (can't remember which freeway, 90 maybe?). Anyways, for being right next to the freeway, the hotel is really quiet. Maybe they just don't have the traffic that we do in the Bay Area.

We checked in & the lady that checked us in was really nice. I asked about some popular spots to hit, she pulled out several maps, mapped the routes for us & sent us on our way. She was very sweet :-) .

Our room & bathroom were extremely CLEAN. The bathroom was really simple in decor but cleanliness is more important to me! The bed was really comfortable, the hotel was quiet and we slept well.

Their continental breakfast was average. I had cereal (cheerios) & fruit because besides toast & bagels...everything else they offered was high in sugar...muffins, tons of pastries, waffles, donuts....ack! While I may create these items, I don't always eat them unless I, myself, make them "healthy"!

It was quick stay but definitely a comfortable one.

  • Liked — Clean & great value!
  • Disliked — Couldn't walk to markets, had to drive since hotel is tucked away.

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 this at a very low price. We will definitely stay at the Wingate in Clearwater again.

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 very clean and the staff was very attentive. The $120 rate was a bit high though, but perhaps it was due to Gasparilla.

The hotel is located in a busness park and access to it is not the easiest, however I would not let this deter you from staying here. There are two methods of access, via US 19 or by the back business park entrance on 49th street. There is currently construction on US 19 which MAY effect your entrance or your travel destinations outside of the hotel.

The pool, whirlpool, business center and fitness area
were all very well maintained. Breakfast was typical continental type with pankages, sausage patties and egg 'patties" along with the usual danish, bagels, etc.

There are two restaurants located next to the hotel. One is a steakhouse and the other is a sports like bar.

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 was 412, which had a couple problems that the staff tried to correct, but was not able to. The non-smoking room had a previous inhabitant that decided to smoke and apparently even drop his/her incendiary device a few times leaving burn marks on the carpet. We asked for a change of room, but the hotel was booked solid, so that was not possible. Also, even though there was a one-room buffer between 412 and the elevator, you could easily hear a decent amount of mechanical noise from the elevator.

So, the moral of the story is: 1> the staff will definitely try to help you if you have problems, 2> check out the room first if you are sensitive to smoke, and 3> try to get a room far away from the elevator.

Otherwise, the rest was quite good -- clean rooms, decent breakfast area, pool / hot tub / small fitness room. Immediately next door are a Quaker Steak and some other restaurant. Generally convenient location. Rates were decent.

  • Liked — very convenient combination power strip / ethernet cable for computers -- very handy for business travelers
  • Disliked — heavy smoke odor in non-smoking room

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 RIGHT. Not only that but the same thing happened to two other couples we knew who were staying there at that time. The other problem was getting a couple of extra towels in the room each morning, it seemed like a real hassle for the housekeeping staff to accommodate us with such a small request. If you do decide to stay there just make sure you CONFIRM your room request in advance.
