St. Pete Beach

Postcard Inn On The Beach

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • Perched right on the sand in one of Florida's most popular West Coast beach destinations
  • Decor inspired by casual surf shacks, but dressed up with modern comforts and bright colors
  • About a 20-minute drive from downtown St. Petersburg, and less than an hour from Tampa

“Hip, affordable, and resolutely casual” -- Travel + Leisure

Map & Directions

The inn is about a 45-minute drive southwest of Tampa.

Part of “a new wave of stylish, affordable beach hotels" (Travel + Leisure), Postcard Inn on the Beach offers a retro-cool style inspired by the lively-yet-laid-back surfer lifestyle. Rooms are done up in bright colors and cheeky patterns. Some have wall-size murals of riding the waves, others have collages of breezy fashions, beach lifestyle, and sun-soaked locales -- much of the photography comes from local artists. Each room has a surfboard leaning against one corner, along with modern touches like a flat-screen TV and Wi-Fi.

The inn surrounds a happening pool patio, where lounge chairs and hammocks sit beneath palms. The pool opens to a beach bar, serving up tropical cocktails and a lively atmosphere. Just beyond that, St. Pete beach splashes warmly ashore. For guests who must leave the comfort of their beach chair, downtown St. Petersburg and Tampa offer museums, professional sports teams and entertainment such as the Salvador Dali Museum and Busch Gardens.

From the press:
