nice clean hotel good atmosphere nice pool with its own bar, clean environment comfortable rooms friendly helpful staff, the bar will Cork your own wine for free, I went back 3 times while visiting this area, only downfall is its right on a busy street, the rooms with balconies face the street,  strange they should face the pool.

My significant other had a reunion in Tampa, and the Tahitian was the selected reunion "hotel". My SO said "It was basically a hook up spot back in the day (the 70s)" but the website looked pretty nice so we decided to stay for our 3 night stay. Below is an abbreviated summary of our experience: (1) To be absolutely... More

The 1st thing I noticed was a strong smell when I entered the room. I'm not sure what it was and it could have been cleaning products but either way I wasn't happy with it. The hotel itself it very nice but the room was just okay. I was disappointed that it didn't look like the online pictures. The pictures... More

We stayed here for three nights for a social weekend along with a group of friends. The 'Old Style Florida Resort' look and feel of the place was just terrific. Friendly helpful staff added too it. The hotel restaurant was good for casual meals. Our second floor room was in need of some work. The bathroom floor was simply not... More

After reading many reviews about the Tahitian Inn (both the good and the bad), I decided to take my chances and made a reservation for a King Size Cabana Non-Smoking room. We were only looking to rest our head before our cruise the next morning. I was hoping to take advantage of the shuttle both from the airport and to... More

I read about this lovely boutique hotel on cruise critic. Very pleased I booked here. Such a great find. I loved the boutique quaint feel. Much better than a chain hotel. I'm not a five star hotel person and also never a hotel 6. Our shuttle driver Charles promptly picked us up at the airport and gave us a nice... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was nice and must be renovated because it didn't have the outdated feel at all as seen by other reviewers. Tile floors throughout and a lot of space in the room, it wasn't small or crowded with furniture. It has a nice location and is surrounded by lots of great shops and restaurants.... More

The reviews suggested that the three story "tower" would have the nicest rooms; recently remodeled. They were correct. My room had some road noise, but was tolerable. The room (303) had been nicely remodeled. It had a fridge with a freezer and coffee maker. The bathroom was huge. My only complaint was the air conditioner was extremely loud. It sounded... More

On arrival we queued behind 5 parties waiting to check-in which was fine, it was a busy time of day, but 2 of those parties had large amounts of alcohol and the lobby was humid, smelt and there was a lot of noise from the pool area outside. We checked in and went up to our room - as we... More
