“The ENTIRE staff simply goes the extra mile!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2011

In a nutshell, our four nights spent at the Wingate Tampa near Busch Gardens was simply wonderful. The staff is helpful, responsive, and courteous. The property was immaculate. While I was here as a group leader of 15 high school seniors, the value and the qualitity of the hotel ensures that I will be back with my own family. The breakfast buffet alone makes this hotel stand out far above similiar properties.

We at the Wingate would like you to know it was a pleasure having you and your group stay with us while you spent some time enjoying Busch Gardens and other Tampa attractions. We would certainly welcome both your family and your school back anytime you'd like!

Thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and all it had to offer. Personal attention when needed. Big breakfast with many offerings, shuttle any time of the day, clean rooms. Just an all around nice place to enjoy family while on vacation. Great home away from home!

I booked this place based on Tripadvisor positive reviews and I was not disappointed. Very clean, friendly accommodating staff, nice complimentary breakfast. It is very close to Busch gardens and they provide shuttle service. Actually they provide shuttle service anywhere within a 3 mile radius so they droped us off and picked us up at a nearby Olive Garden. Totally saved on taxi fare. I would stay there again in a heart beat. The general manager, as well as, all the staff were very friendly and even played with my 5 year old. The shuttle driver after picking us up from Busch Gardens, called ahead to prolong the happy hour for us. It's these little things that make it so nice.

My husband and I chose this hotel because it was close to Moffitt Center where I was receiving treatment. Our room was lovely and service was outstanding. Manuel, the general manager and the entire staff were exceptionally kind and helpful. They saw to our every need and made us feel very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was just enough and we enjoyed it a great deal! We plan on returning in the not too distant future for a "fun" trip to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island.

This is the 2nd year my wife and I stayed at this hotel in the month of February, as part of a fan club contingent. We can't say enough about how well we were all treated and taken care of. The general manager Manuel Aguiar (Manny) really made us feel at home and provided us with outstanding service, including a great shuttle service. The entire staff were all very attentive to our needs. We are definitely planning to go back to this hotel again.
