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

I loved this little boutique hotel. Our room was clean and huge! It was near the pool, but we didn't hear a lot of noise from that. The front desk staff was amazing, but by far the highlight was Greg the shuttle driver. He was courteous and friendly. We were able to leave our car parked in a secure lot... More

Just awful. We always stay at 'Chain' Hotels so we thought we would try a local/boutique one for a change. Well...when we got there, housekeeping had to come back and clean the room 3 times and dry the soaking wet floors. The bleach smell was unbearable! The maintenance had to come and deal with the broken TV and this was... More

We selected this hotel based on the Tripadvisor reviews, the lack of carpeting and close proximity to the Tampa Airport. The room we were assigned was number 144. It had the potential of being really nice however, the floors were so filthy that the bottoms of our travel slippers were "black", the refrigerator in room gets "cool" not cold and... More

My family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed at the Tahitian April 2014 before a cruise. We chose this hotel because they offered the park and cruise package so we could leave our vehicle at the hotel for the week. It was less expensive than paying to park at the port. Reservations were made easily by phone. We booked a non... More
