Not what I expected

Posted Dec 26, 2014
Pros: I liked the free shuttle ride from the airport and to the port of Tampa for the cruises.
They provided us a free shuttle ride from the airport. But there was a crazy lady on the ride with us who tried to get to know us and wanted to spend time with us later. There was a wild, crazy party going on at the hotel when we got there. Women dressed in wild outfits and drunk. Our room was pretty gross and so was the hotel. The pictures make it look better than it is. We were glad that we were only spending one night there. They provide free shuttle rides to the cruise ships, but all the best times were fully booked. We didn't want to leave at 9am, the only shuttle time available, since we were so tired from our flights getting to Tampa. There were drunk people constantly walking around outside our room late into the night while we were trying to sleep. For dinner, we walked to a pleasant Thai restaurant that was less than a 10 min walk. We also went to a liquor store and bought water and soda to bring on board our Norwegian cruise, as you are allowed to bring your own beverages on board since they charge you extra for bottled water, alcohol and soda.

Vacation

Posted Dec 17, 2014
We stayed here the night before we went on a cruise. This was a very nice place and we want to stay here again for a longer period of time on another vacation. We loved our stay and really enjoyed ourselves.

Built like an old motel. Entry area is unimpressive. Nice pool area. The beds are too soft and not comfortable. The television did not work in two consecutive stays.

Pretty, clean, and very comfortable hotel

Posted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Probably the cleanliness and proximity to everything we needed.
Cons: Nothing...it was perfect for us!!!
Location: There is so very much that we did and that you can do in the area - Busch Gardens, Dali Museum, seasonal events, aquariums, restaurants...
My fiancee and I couldn't find a Best Western or Holiday Inn that wasn't completely booked, and then I found the Tahitian Inn - it is a TREASURE and we enjoyed our stay very much...convenient and central to everything in Tampa and the surrounding areas, as well!!!

Close to Airport

Posted Oct 24, 2014
Pros: It was clean and everyone who worked there was extremely helpful.
Cons: Let guests, especially older guests, if the room you are giving them adjoins with another.
Location: Location was convenient to many activities. Only problem was the amount of traffic during the earlier morning and later afternoon hours.
Hotel was close to airport. Room was nice. Only problem, it was an adjoining room. When other guests stayed in the adjoining room, it was very noisy for us. If the hotel had told us in the beginning that our room adjoined another one, we would have asked for a different room. Other than that, the hotel was nice.
