"Used to be our favorite"
We were really disappointed after our most recent stay at PCI. We stay there every time we go to St Pete which is about every other month. There has clearly been a change in management or something because the cleanliness of the room we stayed in was drastically different from any other time we have stayed there, as well as other small differences we […] noted throughout our weekend there. We hope it was just a bad instance there- and will probably try going back since it was once our favorite place to run away to. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location but old facility needs renovation"
The location was great. However, set your expectations a little lower since this property looks like a 1950s motel. For the price, I expected an "ecclectic" but renovated hotel. The bathroom was ridiculously small and still had that 1950s pink toilet (although the toilet seat was replaced with a white one). The shower barely trickled out. Seriously, […] it took about twice as long as normal to shower since it took forever to rinse the soap/shampoo off. The staff was friendly, so that's a plus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wasn't too pleased"
We had a GREAT TIME! But not much of that is contributed to the hotel room itself. But everything around the hotel including the hotels beach bar was amazing and a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Has potential....needs updating!"
If you're looking to party on the weekends, than this is your place. During the week-calm. Poolside rooms are convenient (beach, pool, Tiki bar), but definitely needs some updating. AC unit kicked out some funky smells and the tall pillows keeps your neck at an uncomfortable 90 degree angle. Overall, the poolside room$$$ was worth it, just wish they […] would refurbish.

I wanted to get a hotel in the beach an I got a hotel on the beach with a beach bar. Nothing fancy but will do the trick.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you like to hear everything that is going on in every other room then you will like this place. It's way too loud, parking is a headache, and they had no extra pillows. We had 3 total for our room. I won't stay there again. My friend got a nice 2bedroom condo for way less down the beach about a mile.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was ok, but not worth the price. Querky fun atmosphere wore off quickly once you realize what luxuries you gave up to stay there for the same price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I didnt like it, Overpriced, overrated"
This is one of those places, that goes by the title "On the beach", yes, what they dont mention is that they got the worst beach piece of Saint Pete, plus the worst location, being almost at the end of the island. This is a fraternity hotel, with lots of young people getting drunk, noisy and not a resting place in any sense. Extremely pricey, and not […] a good choice. By all means think it twice when choosing this place Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"BEST MINI VACATION EVER!"
This was a great place, and the customer service manager, Frank, was amazing. He really helped us out when we had an issue and it was handled quickly once he was informed.

everything was great from the extra pampering at poolside (ice water, wet eucalyptus cloth, etc) to the very uniqueness of the hotel. would definitely go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great deal for the money. Steps from the beach. Pool was beautiful . Rooms clean. They did have a shortage of pool towels so you might want to bring your own. Very clean. Can't wait to go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Third vacation here - and will come back"
This hotel lacks some frills but the location and ambience more than make up for not having a fridge or a modern bathroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay at the Postcard Inn and plan on going back with family and friends. While the hotel is obviously an older establishment and from the exterior looks a little rough, we were pleasantly surprised and very happy with the quality of the rooms and furnishings. The lobby has a European charm with many historical elements […] incorporated into the design and decorations. Old photos, books and refinished furnishings are found throughout the open lobby. The hotel has a very large pool and great beach. This hotel was a great find for us and one we will continue to visit over the years. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only Place I'll Stay"
What a great experience. The room was a unique art-deco, clean, and comfortable, the beach bar was so cute, volleyball nets, right on the beach, the pool was great. I literally have not one complaint. Upon arrival, the staff was running behind on getting the rooms ready for check in, so we just changed into our bathing suits in the lobby bathrooms and […] were beach bums until the hotel staff called to let us know they were ready for us. Not an inconveneince at all! Great location and within walking distance of all the other hotels, shops, ice cream and breakfast places. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A truly regrettable experience"
Within 5 minutes of checking into this hotel, we were on the phone trying to get into another one. While the lobby is somewhat nice, (in a retro sense) the actual room was horrible. The room we got was not only dirty, but ridiculously outdated, and rundown. It looked like they took an old hotel, put up photo wallpaper, a few surfboards and called it […] retro. The fixtures are old and rusty, the room hasn't been cleaned maybe ever. To be honest I got the creeps, and I don't usually get the creeps. By the way, there was NO A/C! The only positive, is the beach behind the property which is a plus, because you will not want to spend much time in your room! My friends, don't be fooled by the 3.7 rating, these are not 3+ star accommodations! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not for children"
The property itself has a lot to offer. It has a 2 places to eat and a 2 bars one in the restraunt and one on the beach. The one on the beach has live music. This is attracts many college age and young professionals that are still in the I wanna get hammered stage! They have a great pool and free wifi. The staff is amazing... The hotel is a bit old […] and they do their best to update it! People can bring small dogs. My husband and I came with our 12 year old daughter. She was very uncomfortable with so many college kids partying( very drunk... Making comments to anyone they could get attention from) needless to say my daughter chose to leave and spend the night with friends off the beach. The drunks can be heard in your room. The walls in the bathroom are paper thin you can hear a full conversation of your neighbors Names and everything. The morning is wonderful... All the drunks are still sleeping and the few family's go to the pool and enjoy it and the beach front. They have volleyball nets and pool tables and a firepit and a little library. This place would be awesome for college or young professionals. Not so much for the family! Not because of the hotel but because of the other guest who frequent!

This hotel reminds me of country clubs back in the day when the whole family could go and have fun, including the pets. I went with girlfriends and had fun. I enjoyed the lobby of games when we were rained out from the beach and pool. Good low key setting. Old fashioned look which we appreciated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice, but way, way over priced. This is not a $200 a night hotel in any way shape or fashion, in any season.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best Party Location"
I had an amazing time in one of the pool side cabana rooms. It was perfect in the middle of the action. I would highly recommend this hotel for a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great beach hotel/motel. It is a little more noisy in the summer, but the atmosphere is really laid back and nice to be in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a nice hotel. I liked how close it was to the beach. The resturant was amazing. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We booked through another site at first and was not thrilled when we first checked in. Had some concerns but have to say the staff went out of their way to make things right. Yes, some areas are in need of attention but don't forget they are right on the beach. We had an awesome room attendant~catered to our four legged Daizee. Beach did have some debris […] left behind from beach goers, pool amazing especially when served frozen grapes and frozen euculypus washcloths to cool off. Tiki bar not so impressive but the Toasted Monkey two buildings over was AMAZING from the staff to the food and entertainment. Food in main dining room of PCI was good. I would stay again, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Wish they had a continental breakfast or room service for meals. Everything else was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our overall stay at the Postcard Inn was great. The weather was fantastic and the staff was accommodating. It's a very laid back, have a good time type of place. A few things to remember... The rooms don't have any refrigerators, so don't forget to bring a cooler. The walls are very thin, we were able to hear an argument from the room above us like […] they were standing in our room fighting. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean hotel. Great bar on the beach and nice pool. Wish room would have a microwave and fridge. and staff was a little blunt when trying to deal with a credit card issue. But overAll fun timeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Old facilities but a nice stay"
The rooms and facilities were dated, but the staff and proximity to the pool and beach were excellent. The PCI bar is a dive, but a good time. We were there without the kiddos and I would recommend for singles or couples, pretty loud for couples with small kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
Pros- The location is great with access to many restaurants, bars, and of course the beach. The pool is a great size with plenty of seating. If you have kids the hotel staff does a great job of keeping them entertained. The room was clean and comfortable and the housekeeping staff was accommodating. Cons- You have no privacy and can hear everything […] that goes on in the room next to you. It can be bothersome if you aren't on the same sleeping schedule. The beach bar is disgusting and smells like sewage. Everyone at the bar was complaining of the smell and the bartender said there were problems with the septic lines that ran below the bar. Being that the pool is next to the bar it also smelt like sewage and the stench came and went with the wind. We went to the hotel next door for drinks and they had a much nicer bar with a lot of entertainment. As long as you set your expectations you will not have an issue with your stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful time. We loved that the hotel made us feel like we were at the beach and not in a standard modern hotel you would find in Chicogo or Toranto. Many locals hang out at this hotel/beach bar. They had live music every night. There isn't a whole lot to do in the area besides volleyball, boat rides and other various water activities but […] if that's all you're looking for, this is the hotel for you! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great stay. Only gripe was that the room was not yet available at check-in at 3:30pm and they never cleaned our room! Not good for a beach hotel with all the sand that is brought in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sub par experience"
After a much anticipated stay at PCI, my wife and I were displeased with the quality of the hotel and the crowd that was staying there. It seems as though there has been one to many parties at the hotel and it hasn't been kept up. The courtyard and lobby are very inviting and the rooms are very retro but the floors are filthy and a/c units seem outdated. […] If you are looking to have a great time outside of the room, PCI is a great place to stay but if you like to sleep well after a long day at the beach I would reccomend other accommodations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed for only 1 night on Memorial Day weekend. The vibe was great. The room decor very cool, the lobby welcoming and hip. The bar by the beach an awesome place to hang and have some drinks. On the holiday weekend there were a lot of young spring breaker types so I was concerned about room noise at night. But after Midnight the hotel was very quiet. […] No complaints. Nice spot to feel like you are back in the 80's. It's the closest thing in Florida I've found to a Cali vibe. Similar hotels in Miami are hip and cool, but usually an extreme of either uber polished (Standard Hotel) or so loud you cannot sleep (the many Collins Ave/Ocean Drive hotels on South Beach). Postcard Inn was perfection. Hip, cool, fun, good facilities, and just rough enough around the edges that I felt like it's my second home. I'll be back. If you have kids under 18, honestly I would not suggest this hotel. If you like a quiet spot with a chain hotel polished feel, probably better stick to one of those. If you are looking to have some fun, a few drinks, and enjoy summer on the beach- this is the place for you! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Like a huge beachfront frat resort."
Typical Florida beach motel with a fresh remodel. Not bad if you're wanting to party and be close to the busier bars. If it's a quiet getaway you're looking for, try a few beaches north. Not a bad place by any means, but geared for a younger crowd.Genuine Expedia guest review
The place is a dump, was 80 degrees in the room for four days and we had to check out. It was torturous!!!!' If you like sleeping on the same sheets for four days, and no service. Then go there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst hotel and service"
There was no air conditioning when I checked in and the guy at the front desk failed to mention this. I am 4 months pregnant with twins and had two small children with me. Parking was also terrible. I had to park in an overflow parking lot way on the other side of the hotel, so it was a long walk to haul my luggage with two kids. I would not recommend […] this hotel to anyone! We ended up checking out the same night due to no a/c. It was a huge mess!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good and bad"
The hotel was great during the week but on the weekend it was like being at a nightclub The pool, bar and beach in back of hotel was packed with 18 to 30 year olds drinking and having a good time. It's fine if you don't have kids with you but if you are bringing kids I would stay elsewhere. Our room was in the outside near parking area and you could […] hear everyone walking by and all conversations so we were awake very early every morning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
When we checked in they didn't have our reservation showing. It took quite a long time and PCI blaming Expedia, but they finally found it and we were on our way. The rooms were horrible. You cannot control the temperature due to central air conditioning. No ceiling fan either. It was so hot that we complained and they gave us a box fan. The bathroom […] was a tiny square that cannot fit two people in it at the same time. Both the sink and the tub drain were very slow. You stood in a foot of water every time you took a shower. Once we had neighbors occupy the room next to us, our vacation really took a turn for the awful. We could hear every word and noise clear as if they were right next to us. Lucky for us they were up til 3 or 4am each night! Had to sleep with the tv on just to get some rest. Also, prepare yourself for the weddings on the weekends - which are also loud. The beach area behind the hotel is costly. Chairs and cabanas are not provided to guests even though it's run by PCI staff. A cabana with two chairs will cost you $45! However, it is the "it" spot on the beach. It gets packed and fun! Arrive early to get the best spot. Overall this hotel has a very laid back, young, surfer, hippy feel to it. The photos on their website make it out to be waaaay better than it actually is. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Post Card from Post Card Inn"
Picture shabby chic taken to a ridiculous level. The only thing this place has going for it is the location. This however, does not warrant the price of the small and outdated rooms; cleverly decorated though they are. The quaint beach bar would be a nice relaxing place if it were not for the filthy conditions and the uninterested staff whom are far […] to focused on hamming it up with the locals to render anything remotely approaching customer service. The vibe at the beach bar approaches something like a over 40 crowd trying to reenact a bygone spring break, frankly it's creepy. My self and my fellow paying guests were largely ignored while trying to order drinks. The price of the room cannot be justified. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall good experience. Enjoyed the stay. Great room on the beach for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hip spring-breaker hotel on St. Pete Beach"
PCI is unmatched in its design and decor with touched like surfboards in each room and hammocks by the pool. It has become the destination for the college crowd but it's also one of the nicest hotels in the area. We were really disappointed though by the amount of trash from PCI guests on the beach. PCI emptied overflowing trashcans but left the piles […] of bottles/cans to blow in the wind. They say someone cleans the beach each night but they really need someone on watch all day. It's the most litter I've seen in a long time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Young People Hotel"
Staying at this hotel was very good. Only 2 things we didn't like so much: we arrived at cinco de mayo, which is a very busy day and noisy party. And that we had to pay 37 USD for 2 chairs and ambrella at the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean neat basic accommodations."
I was quoted a price by Expedia of $577.95 plus a hotel administrative fee. I was charged an administrative fee of $39.20 by the hotel, which I paid upon check out. The hotel also charged my credit card an additional 246.01. I called the hotel and was told that I was only charged the $39.20 admin fee and no other charges; however, my credit card bill […] reflects these additional charges. I plan on calling my credit card company on this matter to get these added charges removed. I hope you will also look into these additional charges. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Happy 3 day vacation"
Yes it is an older hotel, but they have gone to great lengths to make it cute and appealing to the younger generation. Our group was thrilled with the stay. Now, the walls are paper thin and you can hear all the surrounding noises, but the hotel staff was very happy, pleasant, and accommodating! Over all thrilled with stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good for spring break goers"
I stayed with 3 girlfriends of mine - wanting a girls weekend trip on the beach. Location was great! Pool and beach were great! I will confirm what I've read on other reviews- walls are paper thin- you hear everything. And Sunday Funday's brought a very young crowd. Long waits at the bar and very crowded beach sitting. It was a unique hotel- staff was […] pleasent. If you park outside of gate (extra cars will have to)- DONT move it or you will have to pay on high volume days. If you check in at night you can avoid the extra fees and keep car parked for the duration of your stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
