My family and I took a summer vacation at Postcard Inn and had the most wonderful time! We had fantastic rooms with great views. We enjoyed the restuarants on locations which made us feel so relaxed and restful because we never had to leave! My personal favorite aspect was the vintage beach decor. It made for a fun and friendly... More

The lobby decor is very hip, retro 70"s with swag lamps and a surfing theme. I was quoted a room rate of $170, but when I asked for the best rate, I got the same room for $120. Outside courtyard music blared until I called to request it be turned off at 10:30 pm, beach bar band played until 11:00.... More

We got a 3 night deal on Living Social and tried the Postcard Inn for the first time. The room was very large and comfortable although very chilly (we needed a space heater). It is retro California surfer decor. The beach is beautiful and the hotel has a large outdoor space with chairs and firepits for sitting outside and relaxing.... More

This was a great little hotel for the price. First off, I think their prices are cheap for being right on the beach, secondly, I love the fun party atmosphere! When I go away I want to enjoy myself. Sounds to me like the complainers are a bit too old to be staying here and need to move down to... More

What a pleasant surprise it was to find a motel on the beach that was like a throwback to the past with current amenities. The place itself is U-shaped which allows for a courtyard in the center with tropical trees complete with white lites that are glowing at night. Lovely. And they have a stack this high of classic board... More

Loved the decor (1950s surf beachy). And the mattresses were so very comfortable. Throughout our stay, everyone we interacted with could not have been more perfect. I always feel attitudes come from the top, and the owner/manager must be very exceptional and service-oriented. It shows! Everyone seemed to actually enjoy working there and performed their jobs well. It was so... More

We loved everything about this hotel except the rooms. The first room the toilet would not stop flushing. We were moved to a nice interior room. Room was clean & very simple. The AC did not cool very well, and the walls are very thin. We could hear our next door neighbor snore all night. On the other hand, the... More

We love this place and definitely would stay here again! I would just like to let the readers here know that the courtyard rooms and the poolside rooms are the way to go. We stayed in an outside standard king, and weren't too thrilled with the room. But we love the hotel, the restaurant, the tiki bar, and the location... More

PCI is funky-retro and has a great beach bar. The pool is wonderful. The people at the desk are nice. The ocean is gorgeous and the location is spot-on. However, the room we had was not very comfrotable, and the cot for my child was old and all metal springs, and without good sheets. The bathroom was super- tiny, and... More
