We stayed here for 4 nights and I couldn't have asked for a better hotel. The room was large with 2 King beds that were extremely comfortable with beautiful bedding. You will not find 2 king beds anywhere. The room had a large closet to stow your luggage, hang your clothes, etc. There was a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave. the bathroom was beautiful with nice tile and beautiful lighting. I travel alot and this room was perfect. The hallways are nice and large. It was quiet and you could not hear any noise from other rooms. The pool was nice and there were tables and chairs to sit around the pool. There are ice machines. There is a free continental breakfast which consisted of eggs, bacon, sausage, bagels, bread, danishs, oatmeal, waffles, coffee, tea, juices, water, fresh fruit, bananas, apples, cut up oranges and grapefruit. The dining area was comfortable and nice decor right off the main lobby. The Front Desk people were extremely friendly and helpful. They can guide you to the many restaurants, etc. all nearby. There is a shuttle that will take you back and forth to Busch Gardens, and the shuttle drivers are a pleasure to talk too. They are always cleaning and working around the hotel. I will definitely return to this Wingate on my next visit to Tampa area. Well worth it 100%.
