Our trip to Tampa was a last minute thing. We decided on a Monday to drive there on Tuesday and stay a couple days. I found this hotel using Tripadvisor (as i always do), and i was not disappointed.
From the moment i made the reservations on the phone, the customer service was excellent. When we arrived, we were greeted by Laura, who was as courteous and professional as they come. She had us registered in what seemed like no time at all. When she handed us our room keys, she also handed us a bag containing a bottle of water, a bag of pretzels and a bag of M&M's, which was a pleasant surprise.
As we walked to the elevator, and then to our room, I noticed how clean the common areas were. The room itself was clean as well. Very nicely appointed with a nice view looking toward Busch Gardens. The beds were nicely made (and comfortable) and the bathroom was clean with plenty of towels.
After dinner, we headed to the pool, and then the whirlpool, both which we found to be clean and a nice temperature. When we left the whirlpool area, I noticed the door did not lock behind us, which it is supposed to do. I went to the front desk and let the girl know, and she thanked me for letting her know . (When we checked the next morning, it was locked) .
Breakfast the next day was superb. They had a choice of everything from eggs and biscuits and gravy and waffles and muffins and toast and cereal, juice and coffee. It was kept well filled and people seemed to be enjoying it. The woman who was working the area was friendly and kept everything well filled.
In conclusion, everyone we dealt with there had a smile and was professional. They appeared to be enjoying their job and you can tell they take pride in their work. So if you want a clean, comfortable hotel at a reasonable price, this is the place for you. I have already told several people about this hotel, and i will be looking for a Wyndham hotel next time I go away.

Hello mjf56,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on your stay with us. I am thrilled to read that you enjoyed your stay from start to finish. We work very hard here to make sure that our hotel is clean and comfortable for all of our guests. I am also ecstatic to read that the staff treated you with such kindness. Laura and our breakfast attendants are some of the nicest and hard working people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I am honored to work with them as well as the rest of our smiling staff.

Also thank you for pointing out the issue with the spa door. We do our best to ensure that these things do not happen and appreciate it very much when a guest lets us know that something was missed, so we can fix it.

I am thrilled that you enjoyed your time here and hope to see you again real soon.

I stayed for a weekend in first week of April, 2014. I think it is a very good location for Tampa! Clean, friendly, quiet! In my opinion, it is the best hotel in Tampa for it's value.
Highly recommending.

Room Tip: With view to pool. Other side facing busy road.
