Try the fish tacos. I enjoyed them. Everything was fresh. We sat on the patio since it was a nice day. The waitress was very friendly. She took good care of us without being intrusive. The beer list was good and the food selection was great. Not your average bar grub.

We booked this place, as we only realized we were going to tarpon springs the night before we went. OMG... It was so disgusting, we didn't even stay. Worst place I have ever seen in this country!!! Disgusting to the MAX. It is in a great location, so too bad they couldn't fix it up.. They could make good money.... More

We stayed at the Tarpon Inn Dec 29 2015 and Jan 1 2016. This is not a good place. The management acted afraid to talk to us. The receipt was handwritten on paper. The first room we had was not too bad. Not really clean, but ok. The second night we were there was a disaster. Remodeling? Hardly. Even after... More

It was late and we were tired or we would have run from this dump!!! Stained sheets, dried blood on one bedspreads. There were food crumbs all under the microwave. I walked barefoot on the carpet and floors and my feet were black!! Bedding smelled of cigarettes. This place was gross.

The location can't be beat and the price is right, but this place is seedy. Our room was clean but the sheets and spread had multiple cigarette burns and the photos others posted of the kitchen areas were accurate. The tv in our room was sitting on top of a non-functioning refrigerator that reeked of fish when we opened it.... More

My mother, her husband, and I booked 2 rooms for 2 nights. We ended up checking out within an hour. Between the overpowering smell of the rooms and the constant foot traffic outside (The Tarpon Inn is an extended-stay motel, and apparently a haven for drug dealers and users) we decided to stay at the Hampton Inn instead. It's a... More

Worst experience I've ever had anywhere. Note on window says to call two different numbers if no one is at from office. We called both to no avail. On our third try, someone finally came to the door. Even though we checked the online rate (44.95) the counterperson claimed the unit's cheapest price was $69. After showing him the ad... More

We knew we were in for a poor stay given the previous reviews. But we were traveling on a shoestring and only needed a place to flop. When we arrived they tried to pretend like we didn't have a reservation which we booked thru Expedia. Possibly to try and get more money for a "last room" that was a "two... More
