Postcard Inn on the Beach

St Pete Beach, Clearwater and St Pete

The hotel

Hip and most definitely happenin’, Postcard Inn on the Beach remains true to its surfer-cool, 1950 motel roots. U-shaped with an impressive swimming pool and a grove of mature royal palms at its core, it joins a new wave of stylish hotels at affordable, bound-to-please everybody prices! No two rooms are exactly alike, although all have vintage furniture, flat screen TV, high-speed Internet access and murals or a photographic collage of all things surfing-orientated on the wall. Try some regional American fare for dinner at the Stamps Lobby Bar and Restaurant. There’s also a beach bar and snack shack down by the ocean so you can grab a drink and a hot dog whilst soaking up the sun. Downtown St Petersburg is a few minutes away or spend time at the beach, indulging in a variety of water sports, including that all-important surfing!

We stayed here for one night to celebrate a friend's birthday.For the room price, I expected a nice room. What I actually got left a lot to be desired. We had a garden view king room; the walls were paper thin and I could hear every conversation our neighbors were having (and they weren't overly loud), the bed felt old, the pillows were lumpy, and everything was just extremely dated. The one positive is that all the employees that we interacted with were very friendly, and were trying their best despite being short staffed. One particular employee that I want to mention is Hannah in the lobby bar...she was fun to talk to, made great drinks, and provided good advice on a nearby restaurant that could accommodate our large group at the last minute. She is a stellar employee and PCI is lucky to have her! Read less

Dawn was super friendly and very helpful when we had questions! We forgot our key to be able to drive out of the parking lot and she took time out of her break to help us. All of the pool staff was fun and friendly. Each day there were activities which made the pool area fun. Jenna, the pool drink attendant, was always smiling and very friendly.

We had so much fun watching and participating in the belly flop contest. Jeremy, David and Tina made it a blast. Loved the free gifts! Can’t wait to come back again! I wish we could stay longer to see the rest they have planned. Would recommend coming here again❤️

Dave was absolutely amazing!!! We attended the liquor lab and had the most wonderful service! He wanted to ensure that we found the perfect drink and took his time to ensure that we were taken care of… 1st time and the Postcard Inn and from what I’ve witnessed- best service on the gulf coast! Thank you for making our vacation perfect!!!
