My family of 16 stayed at the Tahitian Inn for one night before our cruise. If you want a fun, quaint, historical motel....This is your joint! This is NOT the HILTON or a 5 Star Luxury Hotel. However, it IS the Perfect place to Start off a Cruise or Vacation. The owners and the Staff will put in you that...

If cruising from the port of Tampa and you arrive the day before the cruise and are looking for a place to stay, then the Tahitian Inn is the place for you. The rooms are nice, large, comfortable and clean. Reception is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is available but not complimentry which I believe is offset by the free...

We stayed here on Christmas Eve after our cruise. We were exhausted and had no transportation so we were stuck here. The rooms were filthy. We found out the next morning when we awoke covered on bites that we had been sleeping with bed bugs. One of our family member's rooms had roaches and other flying insects. When we complained...

We stayed 1 night, 12/23, prior to our cruise. We had seen that they will pick you up at the airport, and then drive you to the cruise port the next day (included in the price of your stay.) This was perfect for us and frankly, why we picked the hotel. Rooms are well appointed, staff friendly, and the price...

The only plus here was the friendliness of the staff and the fact they accept pets. The room was not clean, esp. the bath and the smoke detector (required by law, I believe) was missing. My room was on the 1st floor and they have these metal plates in the walkway outside which mad a lot of noise when suitcases...

Great hotel to stay in before a cruise - the best deal I could find with airport pickup shuttle and cruise port shuttle. The hotel rooms are a little outdated but are very clean and functional. It was a bit of a bother having an outside room as any noise on the balcony is very loud, especially at night, but...

Stayed in Tampa at the Tahitian after a busy holiday visit. Floor of room was tiled ...no carpet. The bathroom was large but very dated around 1960's blue tile. Furnishings were dated but bed was comfortable and TV was large. Did not have time to take advantage of Spa. Landscaping is well done and appropriate.

Stayed here pre-cruise. Transportation was prompt and courteous. Very accommodating staff to our large group of about 20. Nice hotel w/ decent rooms. We had to switch rooms because the air conditioner was frozen and therefore not blowing out any air. The switch was immediate and they even helped us move all of our stuff into another room. The pool...
