good value

The shuttle service to the airport was pretty limited and the wi fi service beyond the lobby was non-existence but the room was tidy enough and sufficient for our needs. The location was perfect and staff excellent. Plenty of amenities nearby.

Great Value for Pre-Cruise Stay

We chose the Tahitian Inn because of the availability of shuttle service both airport and cruiseport transportation. The shuttle service with Charles was great! (They could even expand their shuttle service on cruising days.) Service staff at front desk and restaurant were very friendly. Some of the room fixtures (beds) could use updating. We would stay at the Tahitian again.

A perfect get-away, with a historic inn (at least by Florida standards, since it goes back to 1952) and a very cool vibe. The best thing was the fitness center, which was well-equipped and not crowded.

Old time hotel in Tampa

I loved it--a courtyard feel, it is very well kept up older hotel in the middle of Tampa. The staff were great, and there are free hotel transfers. I loved the quiet and ambiance of this older, very well kept property.

Cute but Loud

The hotel was surprisingly up to date for being so old (I live in S Tpa and the hotel has been there all my life) It was cute, I am not a huge fan of outside entry rooms. Room was clean, bed was comfy. But here is the problem, the Tiki Bar at the pool was supposed to close at 10, it didn't! So at 2 am I was awoken by two men yelling profanity at each other, literally brawling outside my door as two females screamed at the top of their lungs. This lasted 20 minutes at 2:30 am. Then this pet friendly room had a dog next to mine who thought barking all night would help everyones sleeping experience. The air conditioner and bathroom fan time out so you can't keep continuous white noise to help keep down the outside noise so overall it was a restless night. On top of that their is no coffee in the lobby or continental breakfast. That is fine but when the bill was more than the Hampton we stayed at the night before and we slept like rocks there and got a hot breakfast. Let's just say we won't be back to the Tahitian. Plus we had a friend staying there is two weeks and he is changing his reservation. I would not recommend this place, its quaint to visit but not wotth the overnight. Sorry TI I wanted to Love you.

Tahitin,,, Just right

Quick business 3 night trip to Tampa, choose Tahitian InnCafe and Spa over recent hotel choices. Good decision. Room ultra clean and quite big, WiFi flawless front desk helpful always.. Lively pool/bar environment after 8 PM, solid restaurant fare and service. Is on the narrow section of Dale Mabry, south of Kennedy... Not really an airport lodging, but not far from TPA either. At regular rate is a good Tampa destination at the promo I got it was a superb option. Way to go Mr. Pumello.
