“Unique hotel that satisfied my needs.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

We just needed a room for a night that was on the beach and clean. I'll admit I was a bit skeptical at first because of the three star rating, but overall I was very satisfied. Rooms were clean and the location was good. Only negative I have is that the walls are kinda thin so you can hear everything around you.

Dear Unique Hotel that Satisfied my needs:

Thank you for sharing your experience with other readers. I am glad the hotel met your needs and that you enjoyed your overall stay. The hotel is looking to replace the guestroom windows next year with double pane windows, which will have an impact on cutting down outside noise.

Thank you for sharing your experience and I hope that you will consider the Postcard Inn if your travel needs bring you to the St. Pete Beach area.

Regards,
Paul Herbert

LOUD. People outside your room all night..look out the window and the loud people includes motel staff changing garbage and socializing with the drunks outside your room.

People are heard from other rooms like they are sitting in the room next to you.

Toilets flushing and loud pipes banging every time the toilet water recycles. Sand in the bed when we pulled the blankets back. Water from who knows where running along the floor in front of the dresser.

Keep scrolling the search for hotels and pass this one by unless you don't mind getting zero sleep and no respect from other guests or staff.

Dear Keep Scrolling for Motels:

Please except my apology that we were unable to exceed your expectation during your stay at the Postcard Inn. I have passed along your comments to the manager who oversees the night cleaning crew so he can educate them on the importance of ensuring the quiet hours are enforced.

I hope that you will consider the Postcard Inn if your travels bring you back to the area and give us the opportunity to change your impression of the hotel.

PCI has a lovely pool, easily accessible beach and beautiful garden area that make it a place where families can play and relax. I have been several times with my grand children and family and enjoyed it very much. The staff are very friendly and accommodating to guest. I plan to return.

Room Tip: Rooms around the garden area are quiet and comfortable. Rooms around the pool may be a little more...

The place is like a bad episode of Spring Break girls gone wild. The atmosphere is definitely NOT for couples seeking beach romance and certainly not for families. The rooms were retro & not clean at all- running water in broken shower, somebody else's greasy hair dirt behind toilet- stains on bedspread from ---???
We left. Had a lovely stay down street at the Sirata.

Dear Party Central:

Please accept my apologies that we did not exceed your expectations during your recent visit at the Postcard Inn. The resort staff is diligently working and we have made many changes to the resort operation to curb non-resort guest from having access to guest only areas of the resort. We have experience significant improvements in this area in the past month from all of our hard work.

I hope that you will give us another opportunity if your travel needs bring you back to the St Pete Beach area so you can experience all of the improvements we have made.

We had a great trip. Loved the music all day and the beach just right outside your door.... beautiful scenery and loved the decor. We spent some time alone this time but plan to come again with our kids. There is alot for them to do at the hotel.

This hotel is way better than a 10 stars snobby resort, specially if you are in your twenties or still young at heart. Post card inn reminded me of the cool hip youth hostels of Europe. Its very hip, trendy and clean. The staff are super nice and helpful. The location is right next to the major bars and restaurants. Also the price is ridiculously affordable. I had a wonderful stay and I'm looking forward to visit st. pete's beach again and to stay at this awesome hotel!

Stayed here with my wife, 2kids ages 10 and 14, and got a seperate room for the in laws. We had a BLAST!
Best drinks on the beach, everyone is there to have a good time, and the LIVE music is awesome! We ate on property and the food wasn't white tablecloth, but exactly what i was looking for.. The staff was more than accomodating, and went out of their way to make sure my in-laws were comfortable in their room as well.. My father in law has to use oxygen so they made sure he was comfortable and had the necessary extension cords.
If your looking for a nice place to take a family vacation that has something for everyone, i would highly recommend PCI..
