Four of us stayed in a suite; it was very nice. We were not on top of each other;had two tv's so we didn't have to watch the same thing. Loved the huge pool. It was open until 11:00 pm. Very good and economical drinks are served poolside. On weekends they have cookouts. It is enjoyed by the young and old. You feel as if you are in a secluded area but you are convenient to so many things in Tampa. On a return trip I will be back. It is not 5 star but you are not paying for a 5 star room. All staff were friendly and helpful.

Spent 9 daysin June 2012 visiting family in Tampa. The Tahitian Inn was recommended by family members who have sent business associates to the Inn and also have booked successful parties there. My stay was enhanced by the Inn's attention to cleanliness both interior and exterior. The excellent the dining quality,the location and the consistent level of excellent customer service. I will be staying there again, no doubt about it. Please take a look at this moderately sized hotel with its affordable prices before you stay at any larger national hotel chain. You won't be disappointed.

We stayed here before and after a cruise and it was not a great experience. We waited at the airport for over 45 minutes after calling to say we had our bags. Then when we tried to reserve the shuttle back to the airport we were told it was not during shuttle hours and we had to pay for a cab. The rooms were ok but it is an outdoor corridor entry for most of the hotel. It was a little deceiving from the website.

Hotel M, General Manager at Tahitian Inn Hotel Cafe & Spa, responded to this reviewResponded 27 July 2012

Just to clear things up we do offer a FREE shuttle for our guest but it is advertised on our website and our Front Desk Agents always make the guest aware that the shuttle only runs 9am to 9pm. Once we direct the guest to the correct terminal we make the driver aware to head that location for pick up. Typically it takes 15 to 20 minutes to get to the airport or cruiseport, but the FREE shuttle is first come first serve.

I stayed with my family of 5, which included 3 boys: ages 9 to 2. Everyone had a great time!
The room was perfect for us: big, clean and comfortable!
The pool experience was awesome. Lunch and drinks poolside were tasty with excellent service.
The shuttle service was so handy and convenient.
Look forward to coming back.

We had a 1 night park-n-fly package at Tahitian Inn and I highly recommend it. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. The shuttle both to and from the ship terminal was prompt and on time. The lounge sounded fun with karaoke but with kids in tow, we only observed from the hallway. The only thing that could have made it better would be a free continental breakfast for the cruisers. I did not have any reservations about leaving the vehicle there and all was safe and sound when we returned.

Room Tip: do not stay in ground floor rooms near the back entrance to the lounge
