We needed to be near USF and chose Wingateby Wyndam because it was literally right across the street from the university. We arrived early and were upgraded to a double King bed room - a very pleasant surprise. The room was very clean - beds comfortable. My husband hates the Florida heat and cranked up the a/c, which worked perfectly. They offered a complementary shuttle to USF, which we did not use. The pool was clean and, although the water felt like a bathtub, we enjoyed it! The complementary breakfast was better than most - make your own waffles, bagels, toast, English muffins, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, sausage, yogurt, tea/coffee. I was there at 7am and saw the staff actually disgarding the eggs and replacing with fresh eggs! The area around the hotel is jammed with every fast food/franchise restaurant known to man. We traveled about 15 minutes to find a place to eat, as we were looking for something other then wings, burgers, etc. it was an easy commute from Tampa airport and convienent to both I 275 and I75.
