“More than we expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2009

We stayed just one night. We were so happy with the service provided. The general manager made us feel very special. The room was so clean; as if staying at a high end hotel without the high price. We loved the fact that they provided free shutte service going to the nearby theme park Busch Gardens. We also loved their free hot breakfast!

I just would like to say what a wonderful time we had at the Wingate in Tampa. Not only was the trip worth the wait but so was our stay here. The staff is very professional and very helpful. The manager, Manuel, was very polite and very passionate about our desire to have a fulfilling trip during our 6 day stay. We also notice he was training a new employee and we felt like they had the best teacher in him. The atmosphere was bvery pleasant and one of the shuttle drivers, Rich, happened to be from our town and he was great also, along with the attendants at the desk and the staff in the dining area. We had a wonderful and very filling breakfast everyday to start off our travels and that means the world to us since breakfast is our favorite meal! All in all it was a most memorable and pleasant experience. Thank you, Cindy and Ron Jenkins

I stayed for three nights with my wife and son. The staff was helpful and accomodated our request for top floor. The room was clean and modern. Housekeeping was excellent. The self serve breakfast was very good for a complimentary offering. Shuttle to and from Busch Gardens was timely and a great way to travel. Used the free wifi and business center. Both worked perfectly. We never got around to using the pool or small gym. No complaints though. This was the best experience we've had for a hotel in this price range.

We stayed in the Wingate by Windham for 3 nights while visiting Busch Gardens and it was just what trip advisor had promised. Clean, quiet, reasonably priced, and nice pool. Not much more to say, the room was big and the place was modern and spotless. Free shuttle bus to anywhere you want within 3 miles is brilliant! They left us off and collected us from Busch Gardens everyday, and out for dinner at night. It was like our own personally taxi service, and free! Only grip was that the breakfast was just ok, and served on disposable plates with plastic knifes and forks. There isn’t much to do in the hotel for holiday makers as there is no bar so you have to venture out at night. But apart from that the stay was great

I stayed in this hotel with my family in May while we went to Busch Gardens. The hotel was very nice and clean and very convenient to Busch Gardens. Unfortunately, the General Manager of this property was a different story. When checking in, he was extremely rude to the employee who was "in training" and seemed to get a little irritated with me as well as I was trying to ask questions about the area. Apparently the "new" employee had made a mistake and he was not happy about trying to fix it. Later that day, I was sitting in the lobby waiting for the shuttle, and he was complainig behind the front desk about how stupid everyone is who he hires, and that he will just have to do everything himself. I thought this was very unprofessional since I could hear everythimg he was saying from the lobby area. I would recomend this hotel if this man wasn't in charge because he is a complete jerk.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in April and had no complaints - it is in a brilliant location, literally round the corner from Busch Gardens and 2 mins to the University Mall.

The rooms were clean and a good size, the breakfast was nice with the usual pastries and cereals and toast plus a couple of hot items everyday. Pool was small but nice and the staff were helpful and polite.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay at a reasonable amount you could do no better

We had two young children (2 and 5) and took them to Busch Gardens two days. This hotel was outstanding. The breakfast was exceptional---something for everyone---the staff couldn't have been nicer; our room was very clean and spacious ; and the shuttle service to Busch Gardens was a great time saver. We will stay here again anytime we're in Tampa. Just as a side note...the Tampa Aquarium was not so great we didn't think for the money.
