The Tahitian Inn Hotel Cafe & Spa is a slice of Old Florida in present-day South Tampa. For travelers looking to stay away from chain hotels, the Tahitian Inn is a great choice. The hotel originally opened in 1953 and is now a third-generation family-owned property with a strong Polynesian theme.

Tahitian Inn is located in South Tampa, with convenience to the airport, cruise terminal, shopping malls, and downtown Tampa. Although the entrance to the hotel is off a major street, the surroundings are is quiet and offers a residential appeal. Within walking distance are a few fast food restaurants such as Chick-fil-A and Burger King. Westshore Plaza, Tampa International, Hyde Park, Ybor City, Tampa Convention Center, and more are all within less than a 10-minute drive.

The Tahitian Inn is a motel-sized property that packs in multiple features, but many of those features are seasonal. Locals and guests alike find their way to Tiki Joe’s café at the hotel for meals and entertainment. The small pool is for guests only and offers space for lounging and live entertainment. An added luxury at the Inn is the spa, unlike most hotels, this space is exclusively for hotel guests.

A recent renovation on the hotel’s 82 rooms made them more contemporary with a take on classic Florida. All rooms at the hotel include modern amenities such as free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, microwaves, and mini-fridges. Bathrooms are also stocked with convenient necessities. Upgraded suites allow for extra perks such as mini-bars and a separate living area while Bella Suites feature whirlpool tubs, dining areas, and balconies.

Travel to Tampa and experience the way life used to be, but with modern conveniences, at Tahitian Inn.

4.0 Mediocre
Cons:Leaky faucets, air did not work well loud air conditioner, loud people outside the room. It was very dated over all it was like stepping back in time which some 0eo0le might like but it didn't do it for me. Bed was sub par and not very comfortable not sure if the mattresses were from the 1950s as well. Front desk staff was rude.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Nice, clean room not carpeted

5.7 Fair
Pros:Decorated very well, nice suite we stayed in, The bathroom was great
Cons:Smelled like mildew outside our room there was an old plastic plant that might've been the culprit but we were also next to a spa room so I'm not sure but either way they should look into it
6.0 Okay
Pros:The bar by the pool was nice. We were staying here after Disney, because flying out of Tampa was cheaper. The price was cheap and close to the airport.

8.0 Very good
Pros:It was convenient to get to the airport.
