4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I was skeptical about this place because the price was so reasonable but there were good reviews so I went for it. I'm so glad I did. The rooms were tasteful and very clean. The pool area was sweet and the restaurant had great food. Service was wonderful. We only stayed one night but we will stay again. Very convenient... More

We stayed here before our cruise. We appreciated the free shuttle from the airport and to the cruise port. The hotel was convenient and well-maintained. It had a beautiful pool area. Although they have a restaurant I site, we chose to walk to a nearby restaurant to eat. Trader joe's is only a block away so we went there to... More

We choose the Tahitian inn because it offered free airport shuttle (be prepared to wait 40mins) and free cruise ship shuttle. The place was very clean but a little run down. The restaurant was closed down for renovations in the kitchen. Which I'm shocked by because when we walked past the kitchen doors and peaked in the kitchen looked to... More

If you are good with the old time motel, than this is your place. Staff is amazing. It is clean and it is old. There are musty, moldy smells walking down the hallway to your room and even stronger in the room. Yes, I upgraded to a suite, because friends said to do that to get a better room. They... More

We booked this hotel (or should I say MOTEL) based on the majority of favorable reviews. We arrived at the hotel and telephoned the number provided for a shuttle. The shuttle arrived about a half hour later. The driver was very nice and professional. While checking in we inquired about the cruise port shuttle that was advertised and a very... More

Upon reading the reviews, I was skeptical of this hotel. However, upon our arrival and checking in, I questioned the earlier reviews. I loved the boutique feel of this hotel. The room with a queen bed was spacious and clean. I loved the coffee bar with a sink, mini refrigerator and microwave. The cafe and bar was convenient and the... More

Stayed here the night before heading out on a cruise. It was ok. They put us out by the pool (not in the main building). It feels more motel than "spa" out back. But we had a pleasant stay. The small pool bar made good drinks. Very friendly staff. The restaurant had decent food. They offer free long term parking... More

I was very pleased with the hotel and its accommodations. The room was very clean and well kept. I was upgraded to a room with a small balcony, that was a very nice gesture by Eli at the front desk. I look forward to visiting the Tahitian Inn again. Thank you.

We stayed at the Tahitian during the second week of January. The main reason we wanted to stay here was the proximity to the Port of Tampa and the restaurant / bar that they have on the property. Here is a SHORT list of issue at the “Inn” 1. Lobby was very nice 2. Our room is certainly not the... More

I needed a place to stay overnight because I was taking a cruise the next day. While I normally go for certain chains I am comfortable with, I chose the Tahitian because I could get transportation not only from the airport to there when I arrived, but also complimentary transportation to the port for my cruise! While lacking some of... More
