We planned a cruise out of Tampa and although some of the reviews on the Tahitian weren't that good, we decided to give it a go. The grounds are lovely. The hotel a little dated but our room was clean and the king bed was comfortable. The staff very friendly and helpful... We loved the pool area... The restaurant was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 March 2016

I stayed here while waiting for relatives to arrive, making a late reservation via Expedia. During this stay, I decided to stay an extra night instead of choosing a new hotel. The staff was very friendly and cordial, seemingly anticipating my every need. They offered great suggestions on where to go and what to do along with places to avoid...

Simply not what is advertised. An older motel that needs some serious TLC. The staff was friendly and courteous when we checked in, but the facilities just are not good. There was very loud construction on the street beside our room all night, though clean the place was very run down, and killed 2 roachs in the bathroom!

Not sure where to start, but we had a terrible experience here. First of all, the walls are SO paper-thin; it sounds like the people in the room next door or outside in the parking lot are actually inside your room. I "listened in" to every word on several phone calls outside as well the tv show they were watching...

We stayed here the night before our cruise. They have a shuttle from the airport and then to the cruise terminal the next day. In addition, they picked us up from the cruise terminal at the conclusion of our cruise! All the staff are friendly and helpful.

This is a hidden gem. An older property that is well taken care of. Staff is wonderful. Great pool area with a tiki bar. Very good drinks too. Love it here. We will be back!! Great value too. May not be a 5 star hotel but who needs that.? This has a bar and restaurant and Tiki Joe that grills...

We landed in Tampa and stayed here for only one night, but during that time we met many friendly staff members. It was Super Bowl Sunday and there were quite a few people by the pool bar. Brooklyn was an adorable and efficient bartender. We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed but the off duty cook suggested Uber Eats...

This hotel had great reviews, offered shuttles to the airport and to the port, so we booked one night. The staff was very friendly, check-in was fast, the room had everything we needed, including room service for breakfast. But the hotel is not 4 1/2 stars. Don't get me wrong, it has all the necessities, including a cute pool area....

Do not believe there was a remodel. This place is lower than a Motel 6. Unless you are desperate to save $ - go elsewhere, run, do not walk. Staff is sweet and friendly however that does not make up for old furniture, very old mattresses, yuck, double yuck!!

Stay was fine. Tahitian Inn is located about 5 miles from MacDill Air Force Base and convenient though traffic and construction on Dale Mabry can make the 5 miles a 20-30 minute trip. Ask about the construction ongoing along W Dale--you'll awaken to beeping of construction trucks. Room was okay--tile floor--equipped with fridge, microwave, and coffee service (with those condiment...
