I wish we would have read the reviews prior to booking and staying. As stated in a previous review the price is nice, but not for what you have to put up with. Don't plan on a quiet and restfull stay. The bar stays open by the pool longer than what the hotel states and the drunks were in full... More

We had a rather large pre cruise stay with 28 people. The staff was excellent, from the outside bar area to the restaurant people they accommodated our every wish. Built in 1952, it us still a family owned venue that is people oriented.

This hotel is very nice for the price. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff are very nice. I used the gym every morning, which was small but still useful. However, the hotel is a "drunk hotel". It's a pre and post cruise spot so there are a lot of middle aged people having a drunk week. They're... More

My room was in the main building over the restaurant/bar. It was karaoke night and I was tortured with the worst possible drunk rendition of Kid Rock and Cheryl Crow's song Picture, over and over. Like it was a contest to see who could butcher it better. In addition the room I stayed in had a leak from the room... More

My family stayed in this hotel in May of 2013 for a pre-cruise stay. The rate was VERY inexpensive for a park and cruise hotel, and i found it to be clean and the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It is an older property, but for one night stay it was more than adequate. The pool area was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a romantic night out in Tampa. The rooms were huge nice size bathroom. Our room was freezing when we walked in but we were also soak from the rain. After we adjusted the ac once it seemed to either freeze or break. We shut it off and left for dinner. When we came... More

This was the only hotel that we could find that offered a free shuttle to the cruise port, so we thought for the price that we would try it. Wow were surprised. It is an older property but the staff is great. We did not get to enjoy the pool since it was raining the night we were there but... More

Stuck at the airport overnight and unfamiliar with Tampa, I jump in a cab and tell the driver to take me to a respectable clean close hotel with a good price. The driver drops me off at the Tahitian Inn. At 1st glance I love the look and the neighborhood ( plenty of restaurants and stores steps away). I check... More

We stayed here before and after our cruise and found it excellent. The rooms were spacious, clean and well decorated. The pool/bar area was one of the nicest I've ever seen (including in the South Pacific). The staff here were really professional. My son left a very expensive IPOD charger in our room and honest staff turned it in and... More

We booked this location while we were attending a local convention. It looked very nicely landscaped which is a plus for us as we do photography for a living and love nice backgrounds at hotels. Pluses: Nicely landscaped, good hot water, close to downtown Tampa and area restaurants, themed pool, nice decor. Negatives: Pool "DJ" during weekends means you cant... More
