not so bad

The hotel is pretty old but still in good shape. The staff is friendly/helpful and the rooms are clean. The only real problem is the noise level at night. The rooms are not very sound proof so you can hear all activity in the parking lot and from the inconsiderate neighbors...

Misleading, Not Worth the Money

The website pictures were quite misleading. I felt tricked. This is a MOTEL with doors that open to the outside, as opposed to a HOTEL. The room was extremely dated including an older bed, room furnishings, a well used box-style TV, and a blue toilet, tub, and tiled 1950's bathroom. The shower barely had any warm water and that only lasted 5 minutes. (Motel 6 has better bathrooms.) The tile bedroom floor, squeaky bed, thin walls, and old, rickety air conditioner made for the most uncomfortable motel stay I have had in years. If my money had been refundable I would have left! With a discount I paid approximately $100 per night which was ENTIRELY too much! I was highly upset when I saw the room. Please do not waste your money, look elsewhere!!

Great location and nice pool area

The place looks nice and the location is great, but the walls are paper thin and for two of our four nights it felt like our loud next door neighbors were in the room with us. Also, unless we showered at really off times the water never got hot enough, also the water pressure wasn't that great. The beds weren't very comfortable either.

Spa in the city

My friend had an early flight out of Tampa so we were looking for a cheap- but nice!- hotel for the night. We were pleasantly surprised with the Tahitian. As an extra treat we had scheduled spa treatments. My friend raved about her facial and my massage was excellent! Since it was late when we finished, we just popped into the cafe for a light dinner- delicious! And our server, [...], was great!While the Tahitian Inn is basically a converted motel, it was clean and comfortable. The only downsides to the room itself were the old heating/cooling unit and the bathroom. Those old units turn off and on throughout the night with the temperature never seeming to stay where you want it. And while the bathroom was a little spruced up, that did not make up for the lack of water pressure in the shower. But overall, it was a great hotel for the price.

Our Stay at Tahitian

We really enjoyed our stay. Loved the pool, the rooms were clean, and if you wish, you can participate in go green with linens. We plan on staying there again, and recommend this hotel to others. Not far from the airport, easy access to shopping, freeways, beaches...

BEAUTIFUL AND NOT EXSPENSIVE

The hotel was beautiful. It wasnt exspensive. Family own business. They pick you up from the airport if you need it and if you are taking a cruise they will drop you off at the cruise port. My friends and I stayed for a day. We had a small problem with the sheets but they can right up and changed them. [...]
