“Our Favorite Hotel in OC”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

My husband and I have stayed at the Tahiti for 17 years. We wouldn't stay anywhere
else in Ocean City. The hotel is family run which makes a difference.We feel like family when we stay at the Tahiti. The family works together to give great service. The rooms are spotless. They have a beautiful pool, and each room has a small balcony.We love the fact that it is so close to the beach and boardwalk. I have recommended the Tahiti to many of my friends. The Gallelli's
maintain an excellent hotel.

This was my first time staying at the Tahiti Inn. I decided to stay there after reading previous reviews and noting how close the location was to the boardwalk. I cannot say enough nice things about this hotel. The hotel is family owned, which spoke volumes to me. They were all very welcoming and were instantly on top of everything. The motel is not the fanciest in OC, but it is, in my opinion, by far the CLEANEST motel my family has EVER stayed in. We had a 1 bedroom apt, and there is a full size refrigerator and a microwave, oven and dishwasher. I will never stay anywhere else. Thank you Gallelli family, we appreciate your hospitality and will see you next year!!!!!!

Room Tip: 1 bedroom apt. 9 or 10 is the best location. Only 1 room above (no other attached apts. or rooms) a...

Although we visit OC often, this was our first stay at the Tahiti Inn. We had 4 rooms for various family members and our experience was wonderful! Mario, the owner of the hotel is on premises and personally checks on guests and asked if we were all enjoying our stay. The pool, grounds and rooms are immaculately clean. It is a shore hotel/motel, so the rooms are on the smaller size, but clean and bright. They replaced my parents air conditioner within an hour... Steps to the bike rental and boardwalk. The office staff was very accommodating and patient as we made our reservations for various nights. The kids loved the pool! We will be back! Thanks Mario and family!

We have been staying in a 2 bedroom apt on the property for a few years. The Apt is clean and spacious. You are treated like family from the time you arrive. The boadwalk is just steps away no woories of where you are going to park for the day on the beach for you do not have to move your car from your spot at the hotel. You can have a fun Vacation on the beach and when the surf is not right you can enjoy the pool bac at the hotel. It is a beutiful pool with a water fall going into it. Then their is th night time on the boadrwalk which is fun for all the family just steps from your room. THese id the place to stay when having a family vacation or just to get away for a few days.

We have been staying at the Tahiti for at least 20 years. When we arrive it is like visiting your family. The Gallilellis (sp?) are just the nicest and friendliest people we know. We just loooove them!!!! The hotel is clean clean clean and family oriented. The pool is fabulous and we would not stay anywhere else. We have just booked again for the third time this year. What more can I say! Its our place in Ocean City!

I usually stay a week in OC and rent a condo but this summer we went for three days and tried the Tahiti. I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable and clean the rooms were. The pool was also very clean and hidden from sidewalk crowds inside a courtyard. The owners live on site so you are treated as one of their guests,not just a room number-- and you can't beat the location--right off the 12th street beach, steps from the boardwalk. However, it was nice and quiet at night, although we stayed there during one of the busiest weeks of summer, the first week of August. I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have good view of the pool
