Postcard Inn on the Beach in St. Pete Beach Florida

One of my favorite things to enjoy in life is the sun setting over the Gulf Coast. I feel very lucky that I can enjoy that more frequently now that I live in the Sunshine State.  

Our family has enjoyed many vacations stays along this Florida Coast. I like how each beach has its own feel about it. One of my favorite Florida beaches is St. Pete Beach. My first visit was in 2008 when Bryan and I enjoyed a stay at the Don CeSar. This visit back to St. Pete Beach included my oldest daughter. We time around we were looking for something a bit fun and hip for our teen, and Postcard Inn on the Beach was it.

Our visit for the night was on a Sunday in October. I thought it would be a bit quiet and slow, but once we walked in the lobby you could get a vibe that the place was happening.  I absolutely love the classic Florida look about this motel. They have pulled off a class surfer throwback look and yet modern and stylish at the same time.

The Postcard Inn is a classic motel with rooms facing a courtyard and rooms facing the parking lot.  They even have rooms close to the pool that have their own little courtyard some come with a hammock to enjoy.

The theming of the resort extended into the rooms. The surf theme was cool and the photos on the wall were a nice touch. Our room overlooking the courtyard had two queen beds and a sofa. There was a mini fridge as well. I found the room to be quite spacious for the three of us.

Once we were settled in we had to go down to the beach. First, we checked out the pool. There is plenty of seating to be found poolside and its location next to the outdoor bar makes it convenient to grab some drinks to enjoy while lounging.

The beach bar was quite crowded and we had a hard time getting service so we decided to head down to the beach and enjoy the view. The sun was getting ready to set and folks up and down the beach were waiting for the beauty of the sun setting over the water.

Once we enjoyed the sunset we headed back to the lobby to see about getting a drink inside at the PCI Bar & Grill. We bellied up to the bar and took a look at their drink menu. We had much better service inside, so that was a bit reassuring. It was nice to see some local beer on the menu.

For dinner, we were originally going to check out a local brewery and grab a bite there, but we enjoyed ourselves so much at the PCI Bar & Grill that we decided to get our daughter to join us for dinner there. We had a tasty meal and were happy we stayed put at the Inn.

The next morning I got up bright and early to enjoy a run along the beach. I love the beach in the morning when everything is fresh and everyone is ready to start the day. The beach at Postcard Inn is large and there is plenty of space for people. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas if you'd like. There's volleyball by the bar and you can sit in these oversized beach chairs to take in the view of the Gulf.

While we were only there for a night we really enjoyed our visit. I'm looking forward to coming back with my other kids. Though the hotel seems as if it is geared to a younger crowd I did see other families of all ages enjoying what the Postcard Inn on the Beach had to offer. The Inn is a great value and fun place to enjoy St. Pete Beach.
