I stayed at the Postcard Inn from 10th to 17th November 2014 with my fiancee and I couldn't fault a thing... The hotel is is easily reachable from the airport (we hired a car which made our stay even more easier) and is located on Gulf Boulevard right on the beachfront. From the moment of check in to the moment... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights over the weekend last week and had a nice experience. I am not sure why so many people are complaining about their stay. I would like to address some of the negatives I have seen on here. From check-in to check-out we had no problems. When we arrived, I had misplaced... More

Not sure where to start really!! Having arrived around 8pm on a Wednesday evening and checking in everything seemed to be ok. It did what it said on the tin I suppose. My first impression was it was an old Motel that had been given a facelift!!! The staff seemed friendly enough (that changed). So although there were a few... More

We had booked this motel as a package deal with British Airways under two separate bookings. Within our group of six was a ten year old and we are all 32+ in age. Everything started off ok, we were there for some relaxation and some sunshine duringFlorida's quiet period. I agree with a lot of comments on here, it has... More

I stayed there for 2 nights and would have left upon entering but we had a group of 8 that had flown in from different areas. The rooms actually had a foul odor and we complained and received no feedback from management. They never even came to check. It was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. The odor... More

My family and I recently popped over the bridge from Tampa for a quick getaway. We were pleasantly surprised to find all we would need in one stop to the PCI. The decor was surfer chic and was a nice break from typical, franchise hotel chains. My entire family found something to do with an on-site restaurant, nice sized pool... More

Stayed at the postcard inn on Friday November 08, 2014, unfortunately we didn't get there until late that night and thought we would just deal with the room, only to really be able to get a good look the following morning. PostCardInn has got to be the most pathetic, rundown excuse for a hotel that I've ever seen. The name... More

Escaping the London winter the 'Postcard Inn on the Beach' offered the perfect fly 'n flop holiday. After reading some recent negative reviews we took the opportunity to get in touch with the Postcard Inn in advance of our arrival to express our slight concerns about noise, dodgy air-con and cleanliness.
