Great Value for Pre-Cruise Stay

We chose the Tahitian Inn because of the availability of shuttle service both airport and cruiseport transportation. The shuttle service with Charles was great! (They could even expand their shuttle service on cruising days.) Service staff at front desk and restaurant were very friendly. Some of the room fixtures (beds) could use updating. We would stay at the Tahitian again.

Good weekend getaway.

The room was very, very nice. Looks like the pictures. Has Chick-Fil-A basically in the parking lot & Burger King across a side street from the hotel. The staff was very friendly.

Unimpressed

My family and I stayed in Tampa the night before our cruise departure and were supposed to stay there the night after but I quickly cancelled that return stay after spending our first night. Despite advertising a hotel shuttle, we found out that is stops operating entirely at 9pm and had to take a taxi. This area of Tampa is not the greatest and I didn't love having my kids there. I wasn't aware that there were outside rooms like a motel and inside ones and naturally we were outside. Very noisy from the other guests and people frequently walking past our room on the balcony. The bathroom and shower were gross and very outdated. I paid $50 more for the night and stayed at a Westin elsewhere after our cruise and it was ABSOLUTELY money well spent.

Nice Hotel

The hotel was very clean, the staff was very pleasant to deal with. The room was a little dated, but it is an older property. They do keep it up nice. The pool temp was a little cold and not hot tub.

Great Value

The Tahitian Inn was a great value hotel. It was close to the Air Force base we were visiting and had access to countless restaurants, shops, and other destinations. It was also a very short and convenient drive from the airport. The staff was very helpful, but on one occasion didn't clean our room until well after 2:00pm. The fitness center was incredibly well-stocked for a hotel of this size. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but a little bit too much sound could be heard from the outside. Overall, I had a very pleasant experience at the Tahitian Inn and would stay there again next time I am in Tampa Bay.

good value

The shuttle service to the airport was pretty limited and the wi fi service beyond the lobby was non-existence but the room was tidy enough and sufficient for our needs. The location was perfect and staff excellent. Plenty of amenities nearby.

Not worth the money

The bed was as hard as the floor and the shower/tub very old long time draining, toliet kept clogging up and you had to hold lever for to get to completely flush. Loud air conditioner. This looks good outside but rooms are old and bathroom need total overhauled.

Great pool and location

We have stayed here throughout the years and have always found it to be clean, courteous, and convenient to a lot of things in Tampa. Yes, you may drive through a less than desirable looking Dale Mabry Area to get there, but once you reach the Tahitian, it won't feel that way. The pool area is lovely and always full of people, and the rooms are always clean and nicely refurbished (again, I have been staying here for more than 20 years and remember pre-renovation). All in all, good place for a good price and super convenient to Bern's, Tampa Performing Arts, Buccaneers/USF football, and the airport.
