Wingate by Wyndham - Tampa USF

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

One of the few places that offer 2 king beds in room. Perfect for parents and their children to rest before and after going to Busch Gardens. Front desk offered the children small stuffed giraffes which made their day! The rooms are okay for a short stay. Bathrooms need some work. Shuttle very convenient back and forth to BG. Overall an adequate spot to spend a night.

Terrible hotel room smelled funky ac was not cold enough. Breakfast was gross.

Really close to Busch gardens and free shuttle bus

I am not picky about hotels. I just needs a bed, shower, wifi (for work) and a TV to relax at night. -No working WIFI (connects but no internet) -Non-working TV This hotel had absolutely terrible WIFI. I was unable to even look up simple things for my morning meetings and ended up having to go to a coffee shop for wifi. I went to the front desk to see about help and no one was ever there. I went 2 times. The TV kept giving my a message about "no signal available". I will not be saying at wingate again since I can't rely on them.

TV Set did not work any of the three.nights we were there We were there for the College Football Championship Game and could not watch the game high lights when we got back from the game Could not get the channel off of the movies being advertised. Maintanance came up and were able to get the normal channels, but as soon as they left, the TV went back to the movie channel. There were no instructions available as to how to use the TV. Also the tread mill was difficult to operate. Again, there were no instructions available.

This was very convenient to USF for a campus visit. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The staff and hotel more than met expectations. Very nice property and more importantly, top notch staff.

We decided to come to Tampa because of the weather there. Little did we know that we would love everything about it but the traffic. The hotel was well located, the staff very friendly, and was close to many attractions. We will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends, especially since UConn plays against South Florida.

The hotel was overall good and the room with double king beds was large and spacious with nice chairs, work desk, bench, microwave, mini fridge etc. The bathroom could have been bigger- and the shower and bath tub setup was very tight.

The Wyndham located next to the USF campus is very nice and convenient. The room we had two king beds and a lot of room to work. My bags did not arrive on my airline and when I called, the hotel stated they would accept and store for me until I arrived. I checked in at 8pm, and the bags were waiting. The only problem I encountered was the printer in the business center was broken and I could not print out my boarding passes.

I love staying at Wingate any time I go to Busch Gardens. The location is perfect! The last time I was there, the hotel staff went above and beyond to help us. My friend had accidentally booked her room for another weekend and the front desk was so accommodating even though the reservation was technically non-refundable. They made a situation that could have put a damper on the weekend not a big deal at all.

BRAND NEW! front desk is educated and polite. rooms are spacious and clean, everything works! worth the money.

The hotel was very close to Busch gardens and the shuttle bus that dropped us off and picked us up was a plus! The staff was very friendly and helpful with everything we needed. I would stay again for sure!

Stayed here for just one nite, but very clean and comfortable. There was a special discount that made for a great value. Very close to Busch Gardens and MOSI

For being a Wyndham, the hotel is pretty average. Compared to the hotels around it and for roughly the same price, this hotel is the smallest. My favorite part about the hotel is the shuttle. They drive you to and from Busch Gardens whenever needed. The drivers are really nice and personable. The hot breakfast is okay, for a larger family it will save a lot of money. The fitness area and whirlpool is open 24 hours, but the hot tub is pretty small. The pool outside is also very small. If you are not out of your hotel by 11, you will miss housekeeping for the whole day. Overall, a clean and comfortable stay, but a tad pricey. I would probably stay there again if I was headed to Busch Gardens.

Location to Bush Gardens is great, plus they have a free shuttle to and from the hotel, you just have to call when you are done at BG and they come and pick you up any time. Breakfast is very good, a lot to eat if you want to. Rooms are clean and have plenty of room to move around in. Out door swimming pool looked clean, and has a table to use also. Would go back again without hesitation. Computer set up on a large table is nice, free internet is great.

We had a fabulous time. The first night we was there the electricity went out for a second and then the power was out in half so the hotel. The desk clerk worked quickly and diligently to get everyone moved. So a special thank you to her! Everyone one very accommodating during our stay.

We felt extremely welcomed by the staff of this hotel from the moment we arrived. There are many different types of rooms to choose from which make this a perfect place for families. They provide a wonderful breakfast from 6 am to 10 am every morning and they have a wonderful swimming pool and workout facility. They provide a convenient office space for checking e-mail, printing boarding passes, etc. The rooms are very clean and they have probably the most helpful and friendly staff around.

Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We came to attend a meeting at Moffitt Cancer Center. The shuttle took us straight there and picked us up when we were ready to leave. Location is convenient to restaurants and shops.

quiet. small details that needed attention but overall nice place
