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 had a blast. Staff amenities drinks and beach was top notch. Would definitely come back on a return visit. The time of year allowed us to have the resort mostly to ourselves. Impressed with the amount of vegetation also.

Wow! What a PERFECT destination! The Post Card Inn was amazing! When we first arrived, the General Manager and staff had a welcome gift for us for our anniversary that was just so sweet. We were there five days and enjoyed the delicious drinks and honestly, the best food at the shack, on property, and Nicole was fabulous! The room was perfect and had all the beach 🏖 vibes and decorations. We enjoyed lounging on the beach, were able to see some beach volleyball as a tournament took place one day, and as you can see... even on a cloudy day, the view was merely breathtaking!! The white sand and waves didn’t disappoint. The one thing to top it off was the friendly staff. Seriously, the general manager, Chris, was so kind and not only checked to see how we we’re doing everyday, would take the time to talk (my hubby can be long winded with his stories 😂) and give recommendations for places to see and experience around town. Thank you, Chris, Nicole and staff for making our anniversary trip so special. We look forward to another visit soon. Book this place, it’s worth it! Read less
