The complimentary beach chairs are not guaranteed, this would of been nice to know before hand for planning. It is a 3rd party company and they only allow so many free sets a day. After that, you would have to pay for a set. I feel the hotel website should be more transparent about this. Other than that, the location is nice, amenities are plentiful, food is good, service is pleasant.

Staff at this resort are exceptional! very friendly and willing to take care of your needs. Overall a very pleasant stay, grounds, pool, bar, staff and beach access were the best. Rooms are okay, bed was not comfortable but the resort is wonderful.

Went for a one night stay and this hotel had the best rate. There was a loud concert going on all day when we arrived. The room was okay but you could tell it wasn’t very upgraded- very small bathroom. Also, they didn’t have shampoo so they told me to wash my hair with body wash. That was strange. When we arrived home from dinner, there was a live roach in the room on the floor. This was quite upsetting. Thankfully the music stopped at 10pm. The walls were paper thin- we could hear a regular conversation of our neighbors word for word. The pool was nice. Overall, I would not stay here again and would definitely not recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing trip. This seems to be a party hotel.

The property is great. Very beachy & fun. If you are looking for foo foo & fancy, this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for beachy, fun, down to earth, Postcard Inn is your place. Great pool, tiki bar & outdoor games and right on the beach.

NOT family friendly at all. Bathroom is tiny, no room at all. Rooms need serious updating. police there 3 days in a row. Needs a good cleaning, bag of trash laying around at stairs for 2 days.

NEVER AGAIN!! This hotel is a joke. Old out dated rooms, dirty, no room service/cleaning (because of Covid--which is a joke because other hotels are cleaning while you're staying there). There is very little staff but yet they are continuing to book to capacity. Had to wait 2 hours for a room and I got there at 5:30 pm (check in is at 4). Charge $40 for a Cabana on the beach. Bar staff was rude (most of them). Pictures are definitely old so don't believe what you see (like I did). Been to Clearwater/St Pete dozens of times and this is by far the worst place I've stayed.

Needs major updates, dirty, loud, old and took 4 phone calls to get an ironing board. Pictures do not look anything like rooms or resort in person. Stamps bar was not open. Hallways, stairs, rooms, entire resort is old and needs updating. Stay somewhere else. Full of young 20 year olds partying all night. Walls are paper thin. Not a family resort or relaxing at all. Just was not enjoyable for us at least. If you're younger then this is your place. There are a lot nicer resorts in St. Pete. Try the Sirata, Hilton or Tradewinds. They are all nice.

The property over booked our room and the manager did not care. We had to spend the night in the city of St. Pete in a bad area which the hotel paid for. Called Travelocity and they found us a hotel on the beach in treasure island Florida for the next 5 nights. Travelocity was fantastic. The hotel was 10 times better than the the postcard Hotel. A big thanks goes out to JB from the reservations department of Travelocity. He was sincere, professional and very helpful.

If you are looking for a party this is the spot. I was not. If I knew that music would be super loud in the courtyard starting at 8am and not ending till 11pm. The walls are super thin in the room so you hear everything. They were doing something kind of construction on Tuesday morning so that was fun. The rooms are half done. The bedroom areas are nice but the bathrooms were not so great. Not a clean place, Covid restrictions are used as an excuse for poor house keeping. Now for the good. The staff was great. The location is great. It is just the whole party is more important then the relaxation vibe the place had did not sit with me well.
