We had a great stay at the Tavira Inn, in May. Since we were visiting before the tourist season, the Inn didn't seem to be fully up and running - there is a bar, but it wasn't open, for example. The owner met us at the train station and drove us to the hotel - he also gave us a ride back. He was welcoming and friendly, and even gave us a little driving tour of Tavira, so we would know our way around. His restaurant recommendations were also spot on - we had superb meals for very little money while visiting Tavira.
The location is just outside of the center - you can easily walk to the center in 5 minutes. The Inn has a small salt-water pool, comfortable rooms with free wifi. No breakfast, but there are several cafes close by. Our room had a cute little balcony with a table and chairs - I think most of the rooms have balconies.
Overall, the Tavira Inn is a great value for the price, and the owner, who speaks excellent English - makes you feel immediately at home. The only minuses - and these are very minor in the grand scheme of things - were: the pillows on the bed were not all that great (small and insubstantial - perhaps they just weren't to my taste), and the shower. It proved impossible to use the shower without getting a substantial amount of water on the floor. This was more a problem because I felt bad about flooding the nice bathroom - it didn't inconvenience us in any real way.
