Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Postcard Inn on the Beach

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"We got married at the Postcard Inn and our experience was no less than exceptional."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We got married at the Postcard Inn and our experience was no less than exceptional. When we arrived at the hotel and was greeted by a friendly staff and a scenic lobby overlooking a courtyard lined with string lights. Our room was next to the pool, which had a private seating area right outside our door where you can view the sunset. The room was picturesque and had every amenity you would need for a weekend getaway. The cute beachside bar made the best rum runners for our guest. The only complaint I have was getting married on such a cold weekend, but the Postcard Inn had that covered with ample outdoor heaters at the bar. They even called after I checked out to let me know I left something behind in my room and offered solutions for me to retrieve my belongings. I'm definitely going to visit this hotel again.

Verified Reviews of Postcard Inn on the Beach

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Family reunion of 25 people."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
During the week this is a very family friendly place. On the weekend it got a little noisey at night when families were trying to sleep. Beds were very comfortable. Registration staff (Emma) was great. Our cleaning people, Sherrea and Dave, were super. They have a large area in the lobby where you can gather for cards, games, pizza party, etc. On the whole we all had positive things to say about The Postcard Inn on the Beach.

"Excellent Stay!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Hotel looks just as it does in the pictures. I was with a large group and except for being cold or hot, we all had a nice time. The hotel is an old building but it was clean, the grounds were beautiful, the lobby was comfortable and breakfast was great. I have no complaints. The staff was more than accommodating to our group and we had a blast at the beach bar! It's a pet friendly hotel so there is no carpet. We stayed in the "garden" rooms and I slept pretty good!

Property Description

Offering 196 surfer chic guest rooms, our vintage 50"s style hotel provides the perfect location for hosting special events and group stays. From weddings to corporate get-a-ways, our atmosphere and staff offer the right "vibe" to help individuals relax while making lots of memories.Our upstairs private room, the Sunset Ballroom, can accommodate up to 150 people and has two adjoining boardrooms as well as access to a 1600 sq. ft. terrace. Located off the Lobby, our most unique space (the Garage) can host up to 70 guests banquet style and comes with fully functional garage doors. If outdoor space is what you are looking for the Postcard Inn has over 30,000 square feet of outside space and a white sandy beach large enough for a tented event, beach concert or team building events. Food and Beverage Onsite:The Boathouse Bar & Kitchen Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For a low-key atmosphere along with poolside bites such as burgers, 'dogs, pulled pork & other short-order offerings, guests can visit the PCI's Beach Bar & Snack Shack.
