    The beds were comfortable. A pool look nice but it was raining so we can test it out. We were in Late and out early in the morning so it's hard to say.

    There was no elevator. And it stops to get up to the second story were so slick that people are falling. You had to walk like a penguin everywhere because all the floors were extremely slick. The cleaning staff is extremely loud and sound like they're fighting early in the morning.

    rooms were spacious, ac was good

    only problem was someone's dog started howling in the middle of the night which got our two little pooches started. no fault of the hotel, I guess you take your chances at pet friendly hotels

    People were very nice.

    Hard bead, cheap towels, no soap and a very loud a/c unit.

    Restaurant was very pleasant to visit and Staff members were very polite and helpful. King size bed was very comfortable. Pool was great.

    There was some sort of smell odor that was always lingering especially when we enter the room. Other than that it was great. I like that the Air Conditioner was place in the back away for the Bed.

About

Overview

The Tahitian Inn Hotel Cafe & Spa is a slice of Old Florida in present-day South Tampa. For travelers looking to stay away from chain hotels, the Tahitian Inn is a great choice. The hotel originally opened in 1953 and is now a third-generation family-owned property with a strong Polynesian theme.

Tahitian Inn is located in South Tampa, with convenience to the airport, cruise terminal, shopping malls, and downtown Tampa. Although the entrance to the hotel is off a major street, the surroundings are is quiet and offers a residential appeal. Within walking distance are a few fast food restaurants such as Chick-fil-A and Burger King. Westshore Plaza, Tampa International, Hyde Park, Ybor City, Tampa Convention Center, and more are all within less than a 10-minute drive.

The Tahitian Inn is a motel-sized property that packs in multiple features, but many of those features are seasonal. Locals and guests alike find their way to Tiki Joe’s café at the hotel for meals and entertainment. The small pool is for guests only and offers space for lounging and live entertainment. An added luxury at the Inn is the spa, unlike most hotels, this space is exclusively for hotel guests.

A recent renovation on the hotel’s 82 rooms made them more contemporary with a take on classic Florida. All rooms at the hotel include modern amenities such as free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, microwaves, and mini-fridges. Bathrooms are also stocked with convenient necessities. Upgraded suites allow for extra perks such as mini-bars and a separate living area while Bella Suites feature whirlpool tubs, dining areas, and balconies.

Travel to Tampa and experience the way life used to be, but with modern conveniences, at Tahitian Inn.
