I have stayed at Tatiana Motel 5 times now and find the staff excellent to deal with and so friendly. My stay this time in Room 15 was fine except for the mattress where the springs were uncomfortable. A new mattress is required for this room, otherwise a pleasant stay. I was however concerned with family noise on two nights... More

I always stay there, and will again soon. The location is close to everything, the staff friendly and you actually meet local Samoans staying there. Yes, it is basic - but that is reflected in the price. You have the local supermarket only a couple of minutes away, and the major Farmers market the same distance. When I visit Apia... More

We stayed at this place one night and would not stay here again. The staff is very helpfull and nice but the rooms are just stuffy old and dirty. The hallway lights light up the room through the windows and it is very noisy due to the bars and people in the common room.

if you have to spend a night in Apia this is the place to go if youre on a tight budget. Supermarket is only 100m away, you can use the kitchen facilities, though there is a very good Indian restaurant round the corner. Breakfast is included consists of corn flakes, banana, papaya and toast with jam - coffee, tea. Very... More

Firstly they "lost our booking" and were very rude and unapologetic, because it was the middle of the night 3 of us stayed in a two man room. The room was filthy and obviously not cleaned from the last guests as there was hair on the pillows etc. In the morning we woke to rats running in the hallways and... More

We arrived to Upolu on a late flight and got a taxi straight to Tatiana Motel. When we got there, we went to check in, unfortunately looks like we woke the owner up but she was very friendly. There was a little difficulty in finding our booking at first and looked like our room had been given away, but that... More

One of the cheapest motels in Apia, the room is pretty basic with a standard bed, fan or aircon as you choose. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location is close to a supermarket, mcdonalds and atm machines. However, cleanliness is not very satisfactory but what can you expect for around $49 tala a night. If you are ready to spend... More

We had a deluxe room for two nights at the beginning of our trip arriving at 2am. Found the room to be simple but very clean, accurately desrcibed on the website for budget accommodation. Double bed, fan, aircon, clean toilet, shower and with a little balcony, no grand views, but entertaining watching traffic coming and going and view of the... More

We got into Apia quite late and were a bit disappointed with the location of the motel. However, the staff was super friendly - we had air conditioning and a balcony....that did look onto a barbed wire fence. The room was basic and included a TV and bathroom for a mere 49 Tala. Definitely very outdated - leading one to... More
