Old time hotel in Tampa

I loved it--a courtyard feel, it is very well kept up older hotel in the middle of Tampa. The staff were great, and there are free hotel transfers. I loved the quiet and ambiance of this older, very well kept property.

Tahitin,,, Just right

Quick business 3 night trip to Tampa, choose Tahitian InnCafe and Spa over recent hotel choices. Good decision. Room ultra clean and quite big, WiFi flawless front desk helpful always.. Lively pool/bar environment after 8 PM, solid restaurant fare and service. Is on the narrow section of Dale Mabry, south of Kennedy... Not really an airport lodging, but not far from TPA either. At regular rate is a good Tampa destination at the promo I got it was a superb option. Way to go Mr. Pumello.

Noisy air conditioner

I needed the resting (sleeping) but got little of it because the a/c machine was really loud. In the middle of the night I decided to turn it off and then it got warm and couldn't rest either. That's a shame because everything else in the hotel was great.

Not as fancy as name may suggest

Dark room, AC far too loud. Don't take room 134. Well located and reasonably quiet.

Not bad, but not good

When I saw that this hotel had a Tiki theme, I was really excited. I was hoping for something fun and campy, but the word "dumpy" is probably more appropriate. The hotel is old and outdated, though it is pretty clean. The staff was very kind, but the overall experience left much to be desired. I wouldn't stay here again.

Cold Tile Floors/ Paper thin walls

The pictures lead you to believe it is a nice value for a boutique hotel/spa. It is a piece of work, the room is cold with tile floors, and I could here children shouting in the room next door and outside the room all night.

Our recent stay while looking for Houses in South Tampa

I have passed the Tahitian numerous times and felt I needed to give it a try. Both my kids and myself were pleasantly surprised. The pool area is very nice, room was clean and the workout facility was a very pleasant surprise. Will stay again until I move permanently to Tampa.

Disappointing

We were very disappointed in the Cabana room that we booked. It was very old and in need of repair. The staff did upgrade us to an Executive room (for a fee). I was cordial while trying to get an upgrade, but the staff seemed to get upset and irritated with me. The rest of our stay the staff was quite nice. The front parking spaces are extremely small and overgrown foliage makes them even smaller. The pool area is nice however some local residents (not guests) were using it. Overall, the hotel is much older than it appears in the photos.
