“Great Location minutes form everything in Clearwater/Tampa/St. Pete”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

Even though the name is LaQuita Clearwater South, the hotel is actually located in Pinelas Park. I found the location to be great as far being central- we were visiting family in Safety Harbor, wanted to go to Treasure Island and several area beaches. It was about 15 minutes or less to all these places from the hotel. Tampa International Airport was a mere 25 minutes away. The hotel offered ample free parking, a large breakfast room and varied breakfast buffet with lots of choices from hot items and cold. The Manager- Mr. Ghee took a personal interest in making sure guests were satisfied and even served coffee to us at our table! We requested a room at the back of the hotel and it was quiet, since the back faces a lake instead of the highway. They seem to be in the process of upgrading the hotel and not all rooms have been addressed yet. Our bathroom was in working order, but needed an asethic make-over. All our requests to the staff were honored quickly and politely. The level of service was exemplary. The Location worked great for us, since we were traveling North, South, East & West from the hotel to locations such as Weedon Island, The Botanical Gardens, The Sea Bird Sanctuary, Treasure Island and Safety Harbor. PS there is a great eatery with a varied menu a 2 minute walk across the parking lot called Quaker Steak & Lube that has a NASCAR theme and great slalds, wings & onion rings!

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back of the hotel, second floor or higher

This is now a la quinta. They seem to be in the process of changing ownership.
Needs updating but staff quite helpful. Wireless insufficient.
Difficult to get to.

I stayed here Tuesday night this week, 8-23.

This place is a little hard to get to if you miss your turn but once you get checked in, it was very nice. I really enjoyed my room, the price was perfect and there is a national restaurant right in the parking lot.

Great place to stay.

We have stayed at the Wingate many times over the years and found the hotel to be extremely clean, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and the hotel itself offers many amenities. I would just suggest that they the bathrooms be updated. They are still the same as they were originally. Not that this is a bad thing, just old. No handicap rails in the showers (unless that's in a special handicapped accesible room). Also, they could change up the breakfast menu. It's the same exact thing every single day. They have so many great qualities and the location is good too. I would stay there again, It just needs a little room updating. Everything else is great. The pool, the hot tub, the gym equipment, the internet (although they only have one computer that can get the internet), the lobby is great, the outside is always kept so clean.

king room was very large and well laid out. bedding was superb. workout room, whirlpool and outdoor pool were great. all areas of the hotel were clean and fresh. free breakfast was great, with ability to make waffles; eggs and breakfast meat were available each morning, and selection of pastries, cereal, juice and coffee was very good.
