Stuck at the airport overnight and unfamiliar with Tampa, I jump in a cab and tell the driver to take me to a respectable clean close hotel with a good price. The driver drops me off at the Tahitian Inn. At 1st glance I love the look and the neighborhood ( plenty of restaurants and stores steps away). I check...

We stayed here before and after our cruise and found it excellent. The rooms were spacious, clean and well decorated. The pool/bar area was one of the nicest I've ever seen (including in the South Pacific). The staff here were really professional. My son left a very expensive IPOD charger in our room and honest staff turned it in and...

We booked this location while we were attending a local convention. It looked very nicely landscaped which is a plus for us as we do photography for a living and love nice backgrounds at hotels. Pluses: Nicely landscaped, good hot water, close to downtown Tampa and area restaurants, themed pool, nice decor. Negatives: Pool "DJ" during weekends means you cant...

Needed a hotel near to the hospital and wasn't familiar with the Tampa area. Was able to get a great rate from a 3rd party site and this place fit the bill. Only problem was that due to the cheap rate we got the least desirable room. Luckily the manager approved an upgrade to a room inside. Very clean and...

Everyone has a different experience . Whether business or fun, vacation or honey moon , it's an "inn" , not a luxurious penthouse . You get what you pay for . Maintenance was on site when I checked in. That was nice in case of an emergency . Room service is provided when needed . Hot water was a plus...

If you are looking for a Hilton then you wont be happy, but if you are down to earth you will enjoy your stay. The pool bar is awesome, especially when Mike is working. The restaurant is decent and you get a lot of food for a reasonable price. The hotel is located close to the airport, South Howard Ave,...

My wedding plans were lost, then remade, then lost again. Turning my wedding into a horrible night! Nothing promised was delivered. To begin, I will say I waited a very long time to write this review. But it has taken this long for me not to burst into tears every time I think about my wedding at the Tahitian Inn....

We read the reviews and we were aware about the 3 stars and other comments. It was my first time and I have a few likes and dislikes. The A.C was not very good neither was the bed mattress it was too stiff. I didn't sleep very well. But on the other hand the pool and tiki bar was great....

We spent out 22nd Ann here. We got massages. We had an awesome room the king suite. Then it was time to check out. Jean was awesome trying to figure out what went wrong on our bill. The problem called several times to resolve and a rude clerk during the weekend is why I gave a poor rating. It took...

We had a peaceful and relaxing stay. The hotel, however, is not like the photos. It is more of a 70s style motel. The main section of the hotel where the reception is located, however, has lovely rooms and it appears to be more like a Mexican Inn where I once stayed in Ajijic, Mexico. I believe only 2 of...
