Run down with lots of construction! It was sooooo noisy every day and the rooms are very run down. Elevators take forever because you have to share with construction workers. Breakfast was good and staff was excellent in the morning! Front desk was rude about the issues... they should really be closed during these updates. Everyone we talked too was...

Check in was easy and although the hotel is older they are making major renovations. The front desk personnel explained the renovations were being done during the week but I was aware when I made the reservations. The restaurant seemed okay and only ate breakfast there. Would like to come back when renovations are complete.

Stayed one night as a walk-in on the last night of a road trip from New Jersey to Tampa. When we called from the road in the afternoon, Lisa quoted a great walk-in rate and said there would not be a problem arriving that evening. My husband checked in and we brought our bags to a really nice poolside room....

I stayed for the first time at the Aku Tiki in August of 2016 on vacation with my in-laws. We had reserved 3 rooms for a week and they gave us a great rate, especially for the value!

We stay here 2 times a year. One week in the spring, and 2 weeks in the fall. The people are the most accommodating and the friendliest people I have met in a long time. They go out of their way to make your stay a pleasure. The building is old but they are trying to remodel in some ways.
