For the price I paid for the room I expected a lot more. Don't believe the sign on the website that says you get free breakfast. I got charged $3 for something I thought was free. The staff for the most part was friendly, however my experience at checkout was horrible compared to other hotels I have stayed at. I...

Tahitian-Resort, Management at Holiday Hotel & Resort, responded to this review

Dear Guest, I am extremely sorry for the misleading information on the website but this is due to the fact that it is still under development (as you might have gathered from some of the incomplete pages on the site). The site was accidentally released for general use. The hotel is going through complete makeover since being acquired by the...

Lets just say this Hotel is nowhere near the beach. The closest public beach is 10 miles away. It is reasonably close to the bike trails but in a not so nice part of town. When we checked in we noticed many long term local residents and the property was not very clean. We got to our room and when...

We are the new owners of the Tahitian Resort since August 2006. The place has gone through complete refurbishment and is now owner-operated with more attention to details and service. The Tahitian provides good facilites with tranquil 75-foot pool and landscaping. Though we are not beachside, we are however conveniently located to a number of beaches and other attractions. We...

OK, if you want the Ritz, this is not it. But for the money you cannot beat this resort. OK, maybe it's not really a resort, but a two-story U-shaped hotel. Girst, the room is adequate, nothing fancy, threadbare carpets, older furniture, but the AC worked fine and the room was a little more spacious than a normal motel room....

I booked two rooms at this hotel because of all the great reviews. But it was so bad, we couldn't stay there, and instead went to the Quality Inn down the street and thankfully they had rooms. The woman at the front desk at the Quality Inn used to work at the Tahitian and said it used to be the...

New ownership from August 2006. The hotel has gone through complete refurbishment and has received a very favourable response form their recent guests. Being owner-operated it will provide closer attention to details and service. We hope you can re-visit us in the near future and see the changes for yourself. Thank you.

I LOVED the Tahitian Resort in Holiday/ Tarpon Springs. The price is why I booked but I was VERY pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It is an older hotel but nicely painted and clean and neat, the staff could not be more helpful. The pool was great, clean and just the right temp. The made to order breakfast was just...

Best Western Tahitian Motor Lodge Tarpon Springs: Date: March, 2005 Reviewer: A TripAdvisor Member, Suffield, CT This past March I returned from a 5-night stay at the Tahitian. The Tahitian is an older resort; however, the service provided by the staff, the club lounge and resturant was incredible.

We stayed one night in this resort and had to leave for something a little better. The motel is old but could use a makeover. The air conditioning even when on high-cool isn't any cooler than using a fan. No Internet service in the rooms because they don't use phone jacks, but have the old fashioned permanent cord in the...

I gave this an overall average rating of 3, but here is the break down of this rating. The pool area with the tropical landscaping is definitely a 5. The breakfast is as good as it gets for free so that's a 4. The friendliness of the staff is a 3. The cleanliness of the rooms is a 4. Sounds...
