“Charm and Relaxation Beach Style...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

In need of a fun, easy, relaxing, charming and entertaining escape close to Miami yet a world away? Postcard Inn might be just what the doctor ordered. Located just south of Key Largo and about 1.5 hours from Miami, Post Card Inn is conveniently located on the Atlantic Ocean side of the keys on Holiday Isle. Rooms are spread out over several different buildings all within steps of the sand and water. We had an ocean view room on the 2nd floor. Room was a good size, decorated very stylishly in a beachy / rustic feel, big TV with DirectTV, good bath products and a super big comfy bed. My only complaints were: things can get a little loud with thin walls, internet wifi was spotty. Am already looking forward to my next visit!

My husband & I stayed here 2 nights in November when the weather was too windy for many water sports. Even though not much was going on due to the off season and windy weather, we had a wonderful time. We reserved a Classic King room with no view - Room #321. When we saw the room, our view was the parking lot. It was okay, the room itself was beautiful. We asked if there were any rooms left with a view (the property was virtually sold out due to a wedding that day) and they gave us a lovely room with a harbor view at no extra charge - Room #534. Pictures of the rooms on the hotel website are accurate. They are that nice after the renovation. The staff aims to make their guests happy which we really appreciated. Not far from our rooms, we had propane powered fire pits with nice chairs around it that we enjoyed right near the ocean. The Shula Burger place on site was good for some quick quality food. The bar near our room had a pool table, flat screen TVs, music - live or satellite radio, and very tasty frozen drinks. They had a lot of water sports to try on the property. We wanted to take advantage of water sports in any way we could regardless of the weather so I asked about what we could do in the windy weather. The guys in the dive shop suggested paddleboarding and jet skiing. Jen at the rental area was very helpful and said she could allow me to paddleboard within the boundaries of the ropes and if I didn't like it, she wouldn't charge me. I told her I would like to try it & work off my breakfast. She showed me how to exercise on my board when I was paddling with the wind and I did. I rented it for the full hour because it was fun and didn't require much skill. Very little balance needed. Later, while I was sitting at the umbrella tables right on the beach resting from my paddleboard fun, Kenny approached us with a jet ski offer. We decided to take the tour which was leaving in a half hour and we had a blast. Jim "Rosco" our tour guide was great! He had a dry but funny sense of humor and presented very interesting facts about the environment, shellfish, and pirates during our 3 stops along the way of our 10 mile radius, 1.5 hr tour. He was also very observant, keeping track of everyone, pointing out wild life, and providing hand signals to us as first-timers. This was the highlight of our adventures! Our tour included one other experienced couple and Rosco accommodated us all. He let the experienced riders "fly" while keeping track of us and coaching us along the way. It was well worth the money! Housekeeping was also great providing us with everything we needed and the little extras we requested. All done with a smile.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room with a view. When a majority of the rooms come with a balcony, you want t...

Besides r the fact that the location is amazing, postcard has the Best bartender EVER!! Gotta go see Kim at Floaters! She couldn't be happier, more friendly or more attentive. She makes the best drinks anywhere & does it with a smile on her face. We go back to visit as often as we can (which is still not enough), and the first (& last) place we go is to look for our favorite mixologist!!

Great resort style area with several bars, nice pool, private beach access and plenty of activities. Really enjoyed the cornhole setup playing against other guests. Also very affordable paddleboard rentals on property. Girls running it were amazing and made sure to go out of their way my boyfriend and I were comfortable to head out, even gave us a map of the area to explore. Also had jetskis they were getting ready. Rooms were nice, clean, very enjoyable stay in the Keys!

I loved this hotel! The Postcard Inn is made up of several old small hotels that have been renovated and properties combined. It has that Key West kind of atmosphere where people do their own thing. It is not fancy but has a bit of that boutique hotel kind of vibe. The lobby had a fun feel with computer access, books and games and chalkboard walls you could write on. Also free coffee in the morning. There are three bars on the property. Two are tiki bars, one on each end of the resort that were more like the tree house in Swiss Family Robinson. Both had entertainment so you didn't need to leave the resort. There is an in ground pool which was nice,but the resort is ocean front with a man made beach and several areas to access the water.There is also an ocean front open air restaurant, which is very casual and the food was tasty. The last day of our trip my husband had a sore foot and was limping through the lobby and the desk clerk asked if he was alright and would he like an icepack? I thought that was very observant and went above and beyond the call of duty. Wish I knew his name to thank him!

We stayed at the Postcard in for a second time and this time had an ocean view room. I have to say that the view was amazing, so amazing that I woke up just to see the sun rise. It was a beautiful sight to see!!!!!

The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the manager a gem (Anthony)!!!!! He made sure that our stay was very enjoyable!!!! The beach is clean and the ocean easily accessible!!!

Love all the renovations and not to mention the great music at the tiki hut. Would love to stay here again!!!

Room Tip: Oceanview for sure!!!!! :)
