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... More

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... More

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,... More

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.... More

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.... More

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... More

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...

Our stay here was less than expected. We were ok with the retro vibe, it was built in 1952, but it needs a lot of maintenance. We were in a suite with a balcony and the balcony doors are really old and need updating. One of the doors had no lock, so it would have been fairly easy for someone... More

We loved this place!! They have shuttle service from the airport and also to the cruise terminals. That was a BIG ++ We stayed here both before and after our cruise. Both times we had a big room with a very comfortable King sized bed. One night our room was right by the pool and Tiki bar, but the noise... More

Stayed there while attending a conference. The rooms were nice, nothing extravagant, but clean with a comfortable bed and good WiFi. They have breakfast in house, as well as a bar at the pool, so it is certainly up a step from a motel. There is not much in the area, so you will need a car or call a... More
