“Hidden Treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2011

Just happened on this hidden treasure. Family owned - what a treat. After stopping at 2 dirty and more expensive chain hotels I thought we would have to go towards the airport....when we spotted The Tahitian Inn. They worked within our budget with an AARP discount and we only wished we could have stayed longer. Love the pool area....very resort and fun.

The Tahitian Inn is a gorgeous hotel! The staff is personable and the grounds make it seem like a piece of paradise in the heart of Tampa. I enjoyed my business meeting at Tahitian Inn while enjoying the delicious cuisine at Kon Tiki restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff was diligent to meet our every need. I certainly recommend visiting Tahitian Inn to anyone that wants to relax and unwind while basking in the Florida sun!

Other than the location, which is tops, the restaurant is really great -- especially for breakfast.

The rooms are a great attempt to rehab this very old motel. It's clean, just not as nice as you'd like.

But for Tampa, this is a great alternative to any big chain.

I stayed here during the bar exam.. The hotel is super nice and extremely cheap.. The rooms are wide and clean, the staff is always available and cheerful.. There is everything you need: a nice pool with a tiki bar, a wonderful restaurant which serves fusion food and open at 6 a.m. For breakfast (best breakfast ever) so if u r taking the bar exam is perfect.. Finally there is a little gym and an amazing Spa.. Everything for 300 dollars for 4 night?! I will miss this place!!! Thanks!!!

This is my first time staying here--my friend took the bar exam so I came along for fun. It was 10-15 minutes from the Convention Center, 5 min from Hyde Park and Soho, and quiet despite being on a busy street. They let me check in my room early, gave me a voucher for a free drink with appetizer purchase and when the tv didn't work in my room, a maintainance guy was there to reprogram the remote within 10 minutes. I would definitely stay here again. It's worth paying the extra $20 for a king suite--it was huge, spacious, had 2 tvs, and the sink was separate from the toilet and bathroom.

We stayed here for one day before and after taking a cruise. We found it by chance on the internet but we have already booked it for our fall cruise. It has a wonderful swimming pool with a bar and the rooms are large and inviting.

I believe it is family owned and you can tell that the staff really wants you to enjoy your stay! They were very accomodating with any request. Much better service that I typically recieve at similarly sized chains!

They offered excellent advice on restaurants in downtown Tampa and places to pick up last minute supplies.

Additionally they will pick you up at the airport and also provide transportation to the cruie terminal.

We stayed in a suite in the Tower, and it was definitely worth it. Food was very good, staff was friendly and professional and the massage therapist, Michelle, rocked with the spa services I booked. I defintely recommend the sugar scrub/massage. In fact, I really cant say enough about the positive, "can do" attitude of the staff, from Rick at the front desk, to bartender/manager, Suzanne, to waiter/manager, Zach, to the guys at the tiki bar by the pool. . I could go on, but suffice it to say, they know how to be friendly while affording you great service. I would stay again and plan on it!
