I stayed here during the weekend both Friday and Saturday in the Spa Tub Suite which is pretty spacious. The Spa Tub Suites are located in the building and allow for quiet time anytime of day. Located in the back is the Tiki Bar and large pool with a deep end. This is best pool I have seen at a... More

This place is a motor lodge with a pool and very loud bar. It's not boutique. There is nothing boutique about it or the spa. It's difficult to rest or relax with the unreasonably loud music and the morning cleaning crew running you out as if you should pay extra minutes just to be in the room. Worst night of... More

When we arrived the staff was very nice. Check in was easy. The rooms are easy to get to. We got a floor level room as requested. Hotel is pet friendly with a small fee. Our room had tile floors which was much easier to keep clean, and felt cleaner than carpet. The room was clean and beds comfortable. The... More

I wouldn't stay there again. Walked in lobby was pretty but there was a foul smell. Checked in and went to the room looked like a motel not as described by Expedia. Called Expedia to change my reservation and move to a different hotel and was pretty much was told to figure it out with the hotel. Horrible customer service... More

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
