Postcard Inn: We Define 'Beach Vacation'

Postcard Inn on the Beach is in the business of happy memories. The days when road trips ruled and beach vacations were a treasured ritual are still in style here.

The location? Postcard perfect, right on St. Pete’s famous sugar-sand beach and close to shops and restaurants.

The PCI experience? Classic good clean fun, with an enormous pool, games, and lively common areas for chilling, chatting and sipping a cocktail. Our retro-chic design is a bit quirky, a tad witty, and always colorful. A friendly vibe infuses the whole place.

So let your hair down, stick your feet in the sand, and let the kids run wild. Happy memories are on the way.
