Very retro and quite quaint. Had a very good experience. Definitely a party vibe on the weekend! Family friendly with lots of games out in the lobby...which even had a fun photo booth! The restaurant and snack bar had really good food. Sara out at the tiki bar made some great drinks and Jessica inside the restaurant bar made a... More

Just came back from a one night stay at PCI. It has a great location with a hip, fun vibe. This being said, I don't know that I would return. My husband and I are in our late forties with teenage children. The crowd that was there on Saturday was definitely not what we were expecting. It was packed with... More

Pictures are misleading. Overall, the place seems run down, the room had a weird smell, and we couldn't walk outside without smelling the horrendous dumpster. I'd also like to mention that the housekeeper was very rude because we didn't "put up the do not disturb sign." That being said, the tiki hut and bar were fun and beach access was... More

Recently stayed four nights at Postcard Inn on the Beach and absolutely loved it!! We rented the luxury cabana bed from John who made the experience even more enjoyable and relaxing as he took such great care of us! John was courteous, incredibly helpful and checked on us frequently to make sure everything was perfect. Can't say enough great things... More

At first, from the car-park, this hotel likes like any other one, but once inside one can appreciate the very eclectic style of decor! The hotel has a retro decor, with plenty of original maritime items hanging from the wall, which makes it quite unique and interesting! The reception has a very large wall with bookshelves and a large wooden... More

Postcard Inn is an older hotel actually probably a landmark, but what a beautiful place located on St Pete Beach. The rooms are older, but they certainly know how to take care of you. Brand-new mattresses definite plus. They a beautiful pool and a fabulous tiki bar. The restaurant was fantastic as well as the side grill located by the... More

Booked two nights here very last minute. I read the mixed reviews so I was not expecting much, I'm glad I didn't. Check in was painless and quick. The lobby is decent looking. I requested a garden view but got a fabulous view of the parking lot. We got a room in the second floor and I'm glad that my... More

Thank you for your review. It appears that our retro boutique hotel is not a good fit for you. It is very different then most hotels which is what is so appealing to a lot of our guests. It reminds them of what travel was like in the 60's through the 80's. I am sorry you didn't like our concept. More

Hotel is in a great area with a great beach. The rooms are quite basic with old bathrooms and thin walls. Beds are hard. Access is through side entrances. Beach is great there. Food is ok and bar is ok too. Pool is old. Reception area gives you the feeling of retro design. Wifi is slow but free.

Thank you for your review. PCI is a retro hotel that was just went through a huge renovation that was completed in February of this year. All of the bathroom vanaties and flooring has been replaced along with a bedding package. The restaurant and bar both were renovated along with new branding and menu in the Boathouse Kitchen & Bar.... More

This resort has its good and just okay points. This is why I have given it a 3. It was a busy 4th of July weekend and the staff did very well at maintaining the revelers and the grounds. The pool area is wonderful and I love the open access to the beach. I also loved the location for viewing... More

Thank you for your review. You made some great observations of our property. We agree all rooms should have a refrigerator. In the very near future all our rooms will have a taller mini frig. We also have a microwave in all the poolside rooms and in the lobby for guest use. We find the tile floors much easier to... More

First off, the location is excellent and pool is nice right on the beach. Second, staff was very friendly and lobby very nice. Unfortunately the level of quality stops there I am afraid. I was charged $10 per day for a refrigerator despite being told it was included prior to booking. They credited the $20 which I am thankful for.... More

Thank you for your review. We are in the process of getting complimentary refrigerators for all guest rooms. We are a smoke free hotel so I don't know why your room would smell of smoke unless someone was standing right outside your door smoking. We do have two designated smoking areas which we do our best to police but some... More
