"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.

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Started off rough but ended a lot better."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We did not get our room until 8pm (4 hours after check in) and after a long day of travel we were ready to be in our room and settled. Room was very difficult to find in the dark. Limited number of pool towels. Rooms were ok. Location was good!

"I would never recommend postcard inn on the beach to anyone nor would I ever return."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
In my mini years this was the worst experience I have ever had and staying at a motel hotel. The room was clean the bed was nice the room was small. When I checked and no instructions were given to me how to get the gate up in order to proceed to parking. It was a true fiasco.

"Under Staffed"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Terribly understaffed. Over ran by spring breakers and the new guests couldn't get rooms until 8pm at times. Our rooms were not cleaned while we were there which was 6 days.

"Quite, friendly, surf style atmosphere."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We only stayed one night here. But due to covid the reatraunt wasn't available or outside food area. Did have a little coffee shop. It was a clean, quite room with the courtyard view. Great area to sit in shade and relax. Nice pool and great beach access. The building is little outdated and older but was a decent stay for the area.

"Convenient, Simple, Boutique ish."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Overall, I thought the convenience of the property with the pool and the beach was perfect! I enjoyed the pet fee was a flat $75 for our entire stay. The Cabana rooms are worth it just for the outside private lawn chairs! Love it! Most COVID conscious employees did well instances where nose exposed or not wearing mask at the bar, coffee shop and pool attendants. Most employees walking around complied. Occasions where front desk staff would have to pull up mask when we approached. No regulations of guests with mask walking on grounds except for lobby. To improve: minor holes to be patched from moved handles, etc. a better designated area for dog walking (we just had the perimeter of the parking lot too hot for dog paws). Overall, enjoyed my stay! Would recommend.

"Room for improvement but overall decent hotel."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Our overall experience at Post Card Inn was good. Our room was ready prior to the check in time and the room was clean upon arriving. The beds were advertised as queen, however, they were fulls. Although the lobby does seem to have been updated recently, the rooms/bathrooms were neglected. The bathroom was extremely small and the water pressure in the shower was less than ideal. Our biggest complaint however was the lack of house keeping. When checking in, we were offered a $5 daily voucher to opt out of house keeping but we declined, as we knew staying four night, fresh linens, emptying of trash cans and sweeping of floors from any sand, etc., would be necessary. Although we opted out, unfortunately getting service was still difficult and wasn't provided until we were forced to speak with the front desk and complain. The pool area was clean with plenty of chairs but the lack of servers walking around, especially on a holiday week resulted in frustration and lack of revenue for the hotel because we weren't able to order/buy as much as we would have with readily available servers poolside. We made the best of our trip but considering the price per night, likely we will book elsewhere nearby when returning.

"Some shocking added fees."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
While the hotel is clean and has nice amenities, the added on fees were mind blowing. A and #x24;150 fee put my card on hold for and quot;incidentals and quot;, plus there was an additional and #x24;37 dollar per day resort fee. These charges were over and above the standard daily fee and #x28; and gt; and #x24;560 for three nights and #x29;. While I enjoyed my stay, I doubt I will return due to the inconvenience of the additional fees that were added. It seemed very much overpriced.
