Tahitian Inn and Spa

Conveniently close to the airport, booked sight unseen. Everyone was very nice, room was clean and had everything one would need for an extended stay (microwave, fridge). Didn't alert management, but the only really annoying thing was that when the air conditioner kicked on, a second something kicked on that sounded like a monster truck bearing thru the room-all night long. Louder than an aircraft going over, made it impossible to get any sleep. Was awake at 1 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep. Hopefully, just this room (147) at the end of the line.

very nice

The hotel was lovely. The room was beautiful, very clean, roomy. I was pleasantly surprised after a long day, and wasn't sure if the pictures would do it justice.

Served its purpose

At the end of a long day, it served its purpose. People were friendly, room was nice! Times posted for restaurant, cafe and bar were not accurate though - so I had to eat something from the Chick- fil-A next door.

Will be back!

This was one of the best experiences EVERRR while travelling and trying out new places. Amber was so friendly, always there, and worked everywhere including maintenance (lol) she helped me fix my door issue first night! Other than the phone not taking messages from my mom who called to check on me, everything was perfect!

Dining tip: In Hotel

Breakfast lunch and dinner served on premises. Do NOT expect fast service on the weekends - they have every local in the area I think goes there, (because of the great food) but unless you're on vacation like I was, slow service.

decent for the money

upon check-in, the staff was very friendly and welcoming... made me feel right at home. the room was enormous which is always nice, but could have definitely used some updating. the lighting was not good, the water pressure in the shower was terrible, and they need to do a better job of sealing the doorway because I could hear the girls talking at the bar quite clearly while I was trying to go to sleep (although the bar closed by 1am so it could have been worse). that being said, the bed was quite comfortable, and there was a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in the room which is always a nice touch. location is relatively convenient to downtown and Ybor, and the restaurant serves a good hearty breakfast. not luxurious by any means, but overall a good value for the money. I would stay here again.

home away from home

My son goes to school in Tampa, so I go regularly to see him and I always stay at the Tahitian Inn. The staff is so friendly (from maids up to the owner!) and that makes me feel good. I love the pool area and outdoor bar and service. I always feel so welcome there.

Staff was the best - were very helpful and pleasant. Would have liked to have a breakfast where you didn't have to pay for it. Have great relationships with local cab drivers to basically have personal chauffeur. Would def recommend.

Not great, but still nice and comfortable place in a good location.

I spend a whole week in this hotel (which is more like an upscale motel), and found it to be well located, not too far from airport and other areas of interest in the city. The rooms are spacious and clean, but a little bit too dark. However, the biggest drawback is the air-conditioned which is old and very, very noisy. The windows open to the outdoor corridors, so you if you open them you will hear all the noise and anyone passing by can see inside your room. Security can be a concern because the rooms are can be accessed directly from the street (no need to go through reception) and there are no safe boxes in the rooms. In any case, it is good value for money, and it is a good option for staying at when in Tampa for a few days.

Great, Average Hotel!

I needed a hotel close the places I needed to be. I didn't want an expensive hotel, the Tahitian Inn Cafe and Spa meet all the requirements I was looking for.The room was huge, decent bed, cable, refrigerator, coffee maker, extra pillows and cover. Very nice tiki pool with bar, small exercise room with a lot different equipment, and a spa. Overall good non-expensive hotel close to dining and shopping.
