Didn't plan on needing a hotel in Tampa at the start of our trip but winter storm Stella took over and we needed to fly out of Baltimore a day early. Found this hotel online and glad I did. Booked because of pricing but would recommend to anyone. Friendly staff and room was clean. Hotel decor a bit funky in...

This is an excellent hotel it reminds me a lot of the rooms in the movie Key Largo very Florida like. The rooms are very clean and the staff is extremely accommodating. If you were looking for a Marriott or Hyatt of course this is not one and you should book one of those. But if you are looking for...

made the reservation with a gal who was super nice, but she said that she would email us a confirmation email, which never came through to us. The reason for us booking the room was because we live about an hour away and had been drinking and did not want to drive home. So of course it was late when...

This hotel is located in a great location. The rooms are nice but the bathrooms need updating. The pool area is great, especially with the bar located poolside. All members of the staff were very friendly. We also ate at the cafe and had a great experience there as well. VERY large breakfast portions, great food. Would definitely recommend.

The tower rooms are remodeled (hotel room pics) the row rooms are older. The employees are very friendly, Shawn is the friendly desk clerk. The cafe has reasonably priced hood food, breakfast...

We planned a cruise out of Tampa and although some of the reviews on the Tahitian weren't that good, we decided to give it a go. The grounds are lovely. The hotel a little dated but our room was clean and the king bed was comfortable. The staff very friendly and helpful... We loved the pool area... The restaurant was...

Simply not what is advertised. An older motel that needs some serious TLC. The staff was friendly and courteous when we checked in, but the facilities just are not good. There was very loud construction on the street beside our room all night, though clean the place was very run down, and killed 2 roachs in the bathroom!

Not sure where to start, but we had a terrible experience here. First of all, the walls are SO paper-thin; it sounds like the people in the room next door or outside in the parking lot are actually inside your room. I "listened in" to every word on several phone calls outside as well the tv show they were watching...

We stayed here the night before our cruise. They have a shuttle from the airport and then to the cruise terminal the next day. In addition, they picked us up from the cruise terminal at the conclusion of our cruise! All the staff are friendly and helpful.
