Reviewed February 4, 2009

i am from australia and i stayed with husband and son in the balcony rooms, i really enjoyed the privacy.. etc... it was peaceful just how i like, the only downfall was the mattress... the springs were sticking were hurting my back so mattriess and linen needed to be replaced. other than that i enjoyed my stay there, and i would go back because i believe in second chances... im coming back in april/may this year.. look forward to an improvement.

My family and I visited Samoa for a family Reunion and decided to stay at the Tatiana Motel Fugalei because of the great location,and just being able to walk down the road to the Fleamarkets and local supermarket.
We stayed there for a week and enjoyed the friendly service,air conditioning and the fresh fruit and cereal in the morning.
I would definitely recommend Tatiana Motel to travellers who are visiting family in Samoa,but also need time away to relax.
We will definitely go back to stay at the Tatian Motel when we return to Samoa.

For our first Samoan motel experience,I was impressed.

keep up the good work!

Stayed: December 2008

Stayed at Tatiana for only one night and would not recommend this hotel. Although the exterior images on the website are indicative of the hotel, it hasn't been maintained in a long time and it no longer actually looks as clean as represented. Staff are friendly and helpful and even though the rooms are basic and dated, we could live with this but the linen on the bed was absolutely disgusting and gave the appearance of not having been cleaned in quite a long time. The irony was we were apparently upgraded although we failed to see how this could be possible!! Couldn't wait to leave this place the following morning as I felt truly violated!!

Dear Heather,

On behalf of Tatiana Motel, thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. We sincerely apologize if your stay had been disappointing but thank you for bringing to our attention an area (i.e. linen) that we will certainly improve on, especially our Fugalei Branch that you had stayed at.
I hope future reviewers will note that we have 2 other branches, Tanugamanono & Apaula Heights - that are well maintained and of quality standards & excellent performances throughout the year and that we endeavor to improve and do the same for our Fugalei Branch & its Management.
Faafetai Lava & Warmest Regards
Athene M
Manager for Tanugamanono Branch

Ummm this place needs TENDER LOVE & CARE. Stayed at TATIANA MOTEL 20 MAY 2007. Reception service was alright. Requested a unit with ensuite/air cond. Towels needs to be upgraded. Tea/coffee/sugar was little. Bed linen definitely needs to be upgrade didn't appreciate bloodspots on sheets/pillowcases. Bedspread wasn't nice, nothing like the advertised picture.

I did like the purple dolphin shower curtain, the lovely Samoan lady who brought our towels & glass mugs, tv, fridge, large mirror, tiled floors

I would probably ask for an upstair deluxe unit due to the drive & path areas flooded out the day we arrived & an unexpected river like rush of water flowing through what was suppose to be a long driveway between Tatiana Motel fence & the building nextdoor . (Hopefully it's better than the downstairs units)

Even though the driveway & area close to downstairs units were flooded out we still enjoyed walking & playing in the rain to the market.

I stayed in this motel while on a group trip to Samoa. I was extremely disappointed; it was basically a hostel with shared cold showers, poor ventilation, barren rooms (absolutely NOWHERE to store clothes--no shelves, hooks, or furniture besides the twin beds) and a slight bug problem. Just getting toilet paper for the bathroom was a struggle. For a few extra bucks, stay at Hennie's or Valentine's up the street--much nicer and will make your stay in Samoa much more pleasant!
