I wanted a reasonable place to stay while checking out the St. Pete beach area. Postcard Inn fell into a few searches and seemed like a good value online plus the photos were appealing. On the cool place scale, this place is a 10. The 60's era hotel is decked out in vintage Florida surfer dude decor. It's designed for... More

My daughter and I stayed here for a girls beach weekend. This place is really fun. It is an older hotel that has been redone. It has a beachy, 60's - 70's feel...very nicely done. The rooms are decorated with things I remember growing up....big lamps, hanging beads, bright colors. Has a great beach shack bar, nice pool area, fun... More

We were looking for a low budget holiday, and having found this hotel on Expedia we booked with the hotel direct. It looked quite funky but with great facilities and in an ideal location. However, we did not expect too much due to the price. When we arrived we were amazed - the decor is comfortable and modestly stylish applied... More

This hotel is everything we ever wanted while staying at St. Pete. It is large and they pay attention to the details. The "beachy" atmosphere of the rooms really stands out. The rooms are clean and simple, very well maintained. The decor is just very inspiring to remember you are on vacation at the ocean rather than visiting your tacky... More

We rented a couple of rooms for New Years Eve when we heard about their great party and hotel. We had a great time and the rooms were so cute! The party was fun, good atmosphere and the weather was perfect. We will definitely go back another weekend for a little staycation!

The decor is all done in retro surf style - which we found really cool and refreshing. The lantern garden and fire pit area was very private and relaxing not to mention unique.

Nice rooms...they make the best of a small space. The public areas are really cool and the restaurant is fantastic! It was too cold to use the pool but the beach bar was popular. Can't wait to come back in the summer!
