Why We Love This Hotel

  • 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
  • A few areas of the property were renovated in 2018; including the bar, restaurant and lobby
  • This inn is known for its party scene, ideal for grabbing a drink or chatting late night

"Location was great. Fun and relaxed atmosphere. Rooms were ok. However, we couldn't control the room temperature. Buildings were a little run down as well. but great place to stay if none of that matters to you."

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. Guests here like to have a good time and the scene in and around the hotel is often vibrant. Rooms are done up in bright colors and cheeky patterns. Some have wall-size murals of riding the waves, while 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. For those who feel compelled to leave the comfort of a beach chair and the party scene of the resort, downtown St. Petersburg and Tampa offer museums, professional sports teams and entertainment such as the Salvador Dali Museum and Busch Gardens.

Loved the location and ambiance, it was los back and we’ll cared for. The rooms could be cleaner (phone and remote were horrible) but the nice decor made up for it. Loved the beach and the common areas
Other Comments
We offered room service and the service part was lacking. Food got there late and cold, there were no salt/pepper added for the eggs, and no sugar included for the coffee.
