Affordable Beachfront Hotel - Postcard Inn

Located on the Gulf Coast of Florida comes Postcard Inn in St. Pete Beach which is not to be confused with St. Petersburg, St. Pete Beach is a six-mile-long island off the coast of Florida.  With flour-fine white sand and shallow Gulf of Mexico waters, the coastline is graced with mellow swells that are excellent for beginner surfers learning to ride.

(Priced from $89 per night)

When Stephen Hanson upgraded a 1950s motel into the Postcard Inn in 2009, he played off the local surf vibe:  The 196 rooms feature a mix of vintage longboards, surfing-themed photo murals, retro light fixtures, and flea market finds, ensuring that no two are alike.  The hotel also has a beachfront pool, shady courtyard, and shuffleboard and volleyball courts.  The Beachwood BBQ & Burger restaurant is notable for the gourmet spin it puts on grilled comfort food, with specials like smoked chicken glazed with apricot barbecue sauce and sprinkled with pickled jalapeños.
