The hotel was very clean, smelled nice, and the staff was cordial. The free breakfast had great variety. There were waffles, yogurt, bagels with multiple topping options, a selection of cold and hot cereals, fresh fruit, coffee, juices, and hard boiled eggs. Housekeeping did a great job every day. I always came back to a turned down room. Having the mini fridge was helpful because it allowed me to save on restaurant expenses by bringing my own food. The air conditioning continuously worked well so I always came back to a cool room after being out in the Florida summer heat. There was no shuttle service available, even to immediately close locations as USF across the street. There was a wet patch on the floor of my room between the far bed and the window that perpetuated all four nights but there was nothing on the ceiling so it must have been coming from under the floor.
Very comfortable overall; I have a hard time sleeping in general away from home but I slept like a baby here.
Nothing - couldn't wait to leave This is a pet-friendly hotel. The night we stayed, it was like living in a dog kennel. Carpets, pillows and mattresses all stained - afraid to touch anything. Quality of breakfast food sub-standard (cheap off-brands). Some LaQuintas are decent - this one is not. Have stayed at this one several times and it keeps getting worse. Probably will not stay again.
Where to start.... My room smelled like mold, it was so bad I got ill and had to leave. The hotel was dirty, loud. The weight room was filthy and only two machines worked. The pool area was horrible the pool op and dirty and the location was hurting. Like I said for the money it was the worst experience I've ever had. Everything!!!!!
The hotel room was really clean, big and comfortable beds. Me and my son were exhausted after a fun day at Bush Gardens, it was nice to drive up the road check in and relax.
When I go to breakfast i like to sit, watch the news and baby a cup of coffee. Nothing like a very small cup to ruin that. I guess maybe 5-6 oz coffee/juice ups in breakfast area. If hard boiled eggs are peeled, i like that. I have never been to a breakfast with peel you own eggs. Maybe that's a new cost saver. Summed up, they saved about 35-50 cents to loose a customer in a highly competitive market. Sorry, but i smoke. Going outside is fine, walking across the parking lot is fine. But give me a bench! .
Location ran out of breakfast items
Rooms were nice enough. I'd return for on business trip but not on a vacation. Half of the staff was very friendly, the other half acted bothered if you asked a question or needed something. The location is close to Universal. It's fine if you want to drive every where. Though, next time we'll stay on International at the Hyatt or Embassy. Honestly, you can walk to lots of restaurants and touristy spots from almost any hotel there. The pillows were terrible, my neck hurt the entire trip. Breakfast and Kickback had the same menu everyday, with the exception of one or two rotating items. Based on the description we thought the selection would be much better.
That I paid for a king suite and without notifying me they just gave me double beds & didn't try to accommodate me
Nice clean hotel in a nice area close to Busch Gardens. Nothing
Good comfort a bit far from the town center
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable.
The convenient location to the places I chose to visit, the wonderful staff, the free breakfast each morning
Everything about it was easy and clean. Breakfast could be better . . .
I love everything about this place that was my third times staying with them The need to upgrade tv provides. i had of those little rainy day, and all i wanted to do stay in watch tv, and most of the channels didn't work because of the rain. Need to upgrade on that
the staff here were the best that we encountered in all of the hotels we stayed. freindly, helpful, simply great
Very good service nice hotel and room good buffet breakfeat.
I went to the Wingate at Tampa USF with my daughter to attend her college orientation. The hotel is right across the campus, it is extremely convenient, very clean, the staff is welcoming and helpful. It definitely was a very positive experience. Only downfall, the walls are too thin and both nights we stayed, we could hear people talking and laughing in the next room. When I mentioned this to the gentleman at the reception counter, he apologized but said they get this remark quite a few times, unfortunately. Perhaps something could be done with this problem? Another little comment, is that it would be nice to have the option to have just regular eggs for breakfast in the morning as opposed to the stuffed tuna/chicken or other (?) omelette that they have.
The hotel is excellent, the staff is very friendly and made ourselves at home, the room is nice and clean, the location is very good really close to Busch Gardens and has many restaurants around. The hotel provides a shuttle service to the Busch Gardens wich is very convenient! It's an excellent quality/benefit ratio and for sure we would stay there again!! No negative points at all!
Clean comfortable bed and bathroom. Great shower head and super A/C! Nice staff. Convenient location for my trip. Also very good breakfast - nice selection of foods for this type breakfast included with room. NO - everything worked for me.
