My first impression of the outside front of the hotel, how unique, cool! Then you drive to the side of it, you enter the room from the outside parking lot for half the rooms, where the doors are heavily painted blue to cover up age. Our FIRST room was nasty!! The door barely shut and when locked, you could still... More

If you are looking for an affordable hotel ON the beach that also has character, then this is the place for you! The rooms are so much fun! Great pool are and tiki bar but best of all it's on the beach ! Stay here !!

I spend one night at this hotel with my family. If you get a room with a garden view, it's the perfect one. I liked the way that they build the hotel and how the rooms were decorated. The pool was great, very big and they had a smaller pool for little kids. We enjoyed the bar as well, staffing... More

I found this hotel to be quite quaint + eclectic with its circa 1950's surfer decor. In my search for accommodations for our trip I did read several negative reviews about PCI. I contacted PCI management via e-mail with my concerns, he addressed them and assured me they were isolated incidence. I booked our week long stay with PCI and... More

My wife and I travelled to St. Pete Beach with another couple during our Fall Break. We chose PCI because it looked relaxed and got a great price. We were in a Garden King and loved the room although bathrooms were small but didn't take anything away from our stay. I would highly recommend PCI for couples looking for a... More

This is a beach bar hotel with a mix of people who mostly come and stay to enjoy the atmosphere. This is NOT a place to come and get rest. The court yard music starts at 10am and doesn't turn off until 11pm. At check-in (4pm) you might be lucky and get your room or you might not (2hrs) late.... More

We stayed at Postcard Inn (previously Travelodge) this year for 5 Nites. We stayed here about 3 yrs ago when it was still the travelodge and had a good experience at that time. We were on the first floor on the North Side of the building which the parking lot accesses the beach and people walk back and forth to... More

I found this hotel to be adorable and just as the website potrays. Positives include: cute decor, nice courtyards, nice outdoor bar area, snack bar area, free coffee in the lobby, friendly staff, mix of all ages, lots of places to just lay around relaxing, and great location next door to very popular larger resorts. We were upgraded from a... More

The Postcard Inn is a blast from the past...LOTS OF FUN, but it's important to know what to expect... The hotel is older and has not been remodeled to today's standards, but it is clean with funky decor. It's like being back in the 1960's. It's also very lively and not a place to go if you're looking for peace... More

WHAT A SHAME - THE PHOTOS MADE US THINK IT WAS SO NICE! We were looking for a nice 3 day weekend. Waited an hour to check in after check in time, was greeted by hot air, sticky floors, urine smelling bathroom, dirty stained quilt and no where else to go by that time. If you are the younger crowd... More
