Its 82 rooms are decorated with an island theme, including Polynesian shutters, porcelain flooring, and dark wood furniture. The Tahitian Inn is a simple, affordable, locally-owned, and convenient option while exploring Tampa and St. Petersburg.
The ambiance at the Tahitian Inn stands out above the more standard corporate-owned chain hotels. It has a cute outdoor pool area with a raised deck, and the water is heated for year-round use. Torch Bar is onsite and serves poolside, island-themed cocktails. The drink list includes Orange Krush with vodka, orange juice, lemon-lime soda, and triple sec; and the Cucumber Freshness with cucumber vodka, strawberry, cucumber, and soda. All of the refreshing cocktails on the drink menu are reasonably priced, and everything tastes better while relaxing in the sun beside a pool.
Pach’s Place is an on-site restaurant. that serves breakfast and lunch options. Although it does not offer room service, orders can be picked up between 6am and 2:00pm, Monday through Friday, and until 2:30pm on Saturday or Sunday.
