The pros and cons of this place are about equal. Check in went smoothly, when I needed housekeeping right away, they came in about 10 minutes. However on several days, housekeeping didn't clean our room until after 5pm when we were coming back from the beach needing to shower and had to wait outside for them to finish. I think... More

We stayed here with our 3 grown children. Big rooms, clean room/facilities, fun vibe! The hotel is within walking distance of many amenities and is beachfront too. A great choice for lodging on St. Pete Beach!

I really would like to give Postcard Inn a better review. It's a good property, well located, laid out well. The concept is clever and stylish, it's just not being executed well, kept up, or managed properly. The rooms are run-down and dated (although the surf memorabilia and vintage furniture is fun). The interior lighting is poor. My king bed... More

OK, we all say it in the reviews, it's not The Ritz!! This is an old motel that was converted to a kitchy, comfortable beach hotel. The key to happiness here is to get a poolside room. Wander down to the beach bar for a great view and great service from friendly and attentive bartenders. Have a grilled mahi sandwich... More

This hotel is reminiscent of the old beach hotels. It's not super fancy but it has so much character. The lobby has family friendly games and multiple seating areas. The courtyard is very nice and a great way to relax at the end of the evening. We had a great time! I would go back and I would recommend this... More

Dear Theprettyer: It was good to read that you and your family had a good time at the Postcard Inn. I am sorry about the beach chairs but they are owned and managed by a 3rd party who rents them out. I hope you choose the Postcard Inn in the future if your travel needs bring you back to the... More

My family had been wanting to stay at the Post Card Inn for years and finally got the chance. Pulled in the parking lot and there were two cop cars up front. We walked into the lobby and a guy was obviously drunk and had a busted in nose and blood all down his shirt and shorts. The staff seemed... More

Stayed here for 2nd week of our holiday. Although it was relaxing, the room clean the staff lacked the usual american can do attitude. When we booked this hotel we thought it was picture perfect but unfortunately it is geared towards the younger college/school generation. The beach was beautiful....7 miles of white sand. The food was ok as was the... More

Stayed at the postcard inn for 3 nights, first impressions great but as time went on more flaws with this hotel became apparent. Firstly we arrived at the hotel at 1pm to be told check in was not until 4pm, a little late we thought but ok if that's the policy.. At 5pm we were still waiting for a room... More

This is a 60’s era motor hotel that has been upgraded. It is in good condition, but this is a budget oriented hotel, not the Ritz! Rooms were quite big, and the fridges can hold 48 cans of beer! There is a nice pool with plenty of chaise lounges; beachfront bar is nice – but they need to kick up... More
