“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights, it was nice. It was too cold to go in the pool, we hoped they had a heated pool but they did not. But a nice whirlpool The only complaint is the cable tv goes in and out kinda annoying, but overall nice staff and nice hotel. Good continental breakfast.

Room Tip: all rooms are good we were on the road side and couldnt hear anything

Thank you for posting your comment. Every review helps us to continue to provide the best service possible to each one of our guests. We do apologize for the cable. We were in the middle of upgrading our cable to HD, as well as adding addtional channels to our viewing list. We are glad you were able to enjoy the indoor whirlpool and our 40 item, complimentary hot breakfast buffet while staying with us. We hope to see you again in the New Year!

I stay at this hotel for business a few times each year. The staff is very friendly, they remember me when I check in and the place is always clean and well kept. This last trip the hot breakfast did not have the fresh citrus but everything else was exactly as expected. I usually have to get up early so there is never an issue getting fresh food for breakfast. The ability to purchase beer and wine at the lobby is great to grab a night cap on the way to the room. I do not use the gym or pool, but they are small.

The hotel location was good. Location was good for our needs.
Unfortunetly, the room we were given supposedly been nonsmoking
It wasn't having alleges it cause headaches. We had to ask to be moved to another room, very frustrating after a long drive, just wanted to relax...

We stayed at the Wyndam for two nights at the end of Nov,11. Our stay was very good with the pool and the breadfast included. The rooms were imaculant, and to me that is of the most important. The front counter staff did anything they could to help with questions or restaurants or attractions. The hotel is far from new but has been kept up very well. We took advantage of the free shuttle that went to busch gardens. Both our drivers there and back were again full of information of the area. There is nothing that I could fault this hotel for. Great stay.

The spacious and super clean rooms have tall ceilings which really add to the overall comfort level!

The fridge and microwave are great additions as are the large workspace w/ comfy padded chair, the fast wifi and the spotless bathroom . There is also plenty of room to relax in the adjacent seating area (replete with sofa.)
The king sized bed was too firm for my liking. and some noise intruded from the room next door ( remedied with earplugs) Those two small knocks are my only criticisms ... RECOMMENDED!

Room Tip: my request for a ground floor room near the side exit was honored by the friendly night manager!

This is the first time I am going on a business trip and I was surprise to see how important is to get an hotel that help you so much with staying connected (fax, WiFi, Tel, Internet...)
The rooms are great and the service is really good.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel during our visit to Busch Gardens. We were very impressed! The hotel was sparkling clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful, even printed out directions for our trip to Tarpon Springs the following day. We were jokingly trying to find fault with the hotel. There was a broken ceramic tile as we got off the elevator. The next trip up, a friendly, smiling gentleman was already fixing it....no kidding! They were right on it!! We have absolutely NO complaints!
