Reviewed 16 November 2011

We (wife, daughter and myself) stayed here for three nights from 1st November 2011 at the end of a two-week vacation in FLorida. After 11 days of beautiful sandy beaches we stayed here to do Busch Gardens for two days. The hotel staff were very friendly and attentive - at time of booking we requested a quiet room as my wife is a very light sleeper - and sure enough this was brought up by the hotel at time of check-in. Room was nice and clean, good shower. Breakfast was slightly better than the standard fare. We used the hotel courtesy bus to and from Busch Gardens, and were impressed by both the on-time, happy staff members that drove the bus (a Cuban chap, and a jolly lady). Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel if you plan to do Busch Gardens, and would have no hesitation in booking here again.

Room Tip: Just ask at time of booking for the type of room you would like - they'll do their best to accom...

It's not the cheapest in the area, but if you value clean, this is the place to stay. We stayed here on our trip to Busch Gardens for Howl-O-Scream. The staff was friendly and welcoming. They kept the complimentary shuttle to the park running much later than usual for us (and many other guests) to enjoy this event without having to drive and pay to park. Our experience was excellent and we will definitely stay here again!

- The pool is much smaller than the photo shows.
- The breakfast buffet is convenient, but healthy choices are impossible.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are in the process of changing our complimentary 40 item hot breakfast buffet to include healthier options for all of our guests. We apologize for the sheets and pillows. We've discussed this with our Housekeeping department and new inventory is now in rotation. We hope to be able to serve you again the next time you are in Tampa, and enjoy the new changes.

Everything about this hotel was great. The service, breakfast, rooms,amenities, and location. Also, the complimentary shuttle service was a plus. It will be enjoyed by families with kids, business people, and also by couples that are trying to find a place to retreat.

We have upgraded our internet speeds to run even faster than ever, and we have expanded our breakfast menu to include more healthy options for our guests.

Made a day trip to Tampa and was going to stay the night before going to Busch Gardens the next day. I thought I would just drive around and get a good rate somewhere. Boy was I wrong. The Wingate had 1 room available at over $100/nt. It was a very nice room and breakfast the next morning made up some of the cost. I would come back again, but book ahead of time and try to get a better rate.

Stayed here 27th August for the Bucs/Dolphins game. Check in was good, they had a new guy Ed, who was very thorough, explained where everything was and times they opened.
Room was clean, had all we needed for a one-nighter. The hotel had vending machines by the lifts where you could get snacks and drinks. Breakfast was the usual buffet style but had plenty of variety to fill you up for the day. Pool and jacuzzi were a welcome addition after a day at Busch Gardens.
Cost was only $90 so all good.
