“The Keys”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Great place to stop off if your driving down to Key west, rooms are clean with great views over the private harbour, nice sea front bar also great water sports.

Room views over the harbour are great and for the price are really good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for harbour view if you like peace and quiet. Also try the fish restaurant over the bridge, the...

Got a Deal on this resort from Groupon, I wasn't sure I read the reviews on trip A , well we got a room in the 200 building because of the special from G but hey the room was So Clean and over looked one of the pools, it wasn't heated but that was OK, the view was nice, We used the Big pool that was heated and overlooking the beach and Ocean, it was a really nice resort I would go back! There's not much for kids to do in the keys I feel, but kids would like this resort, jet skis, Kayaks, cool boats to rent, grassy area to play frisbee ect. updated really nice decorated rooms !! Nice bar at the pool, the food was really good at the resturant I had the fish tacos, my dad had a nice burger. Nice Resort.

Room Tip: Try to get a deal on groupon ! building 200 was nice overlooked a nice green area, with pool.

The Postcard Inn is a great place to get away during the winter months!! We had a lovely king room with a balcony on the ocean. We were able to enjoy lovely sunsets and wall as sunrises. They have many wonderful activities to choose from. You can rent jet skis, relax with a message on the beach or rent paddle boards or kayaks. This resort is one of only a few that offer a beautiful, clean beach that you can swim from. Our highlight was the wonderful snorkeling trip with Patrick!! We were able to see so many beautiful fish and were able to swim with a sea turtle!!! I highly recommend this resort, but just be prepared that a lot of people go there to drink and party it up. The people in the room next to us came back after last call at the Tiki Bar and decide to continue the party with about 10 to 12 very loud people in their room. The music was full blast from their radio. After asking them twice to please be quiet we had to call the front desk. Management came up right away to handle the situation. After yelling nesting names at us the party finally broke up about 45 minutes later and all was quiet again.

I would not recommend this trip to families with young children during spring break. People there really like to party.

We chose the Postcard Inn because of its location - approximately half way from the mainland to Key West (where prices are considerably higher). The room we rented for three nights was OK - the bathroom was less than OK (mold on some grout lines, big chip in bathtub, shower faucet was broken) - the carpet on the bedroom floor was stained and looked dirty.

Other than the negatives listed above, the positives were several: beds were comfortable, the TV worked fine, the grounds were lovely - especially the beach area and the pool. My wife and I feel that the positives outweighed the negatives - so we would stay there again. The Postcard Inn is not a deluxe 5 start facility, but for what we paid we feel received a good value for our money.

Room Tip: Since there is no breakfast provided at the Postcard Inn - we recommend the Island Grill just a half...

Room smelled, couldn't quite figure out the smell but there were other complaints of it so it I think it was coming on from the vents. While the bedrooms were remodeled the bathroom was not. Small vanity, old bathtub, old tile floors with what use to be white grout. The closet doors had dusty balls hanging from them and the shelf in the closer was dirty. Truly the smell was the biggest turn off.

On Saturday we wanted to head to bed early but could not sleep as our room was close to the tiki bar that was blaring music all night.

The positives include friendly staff, great view, nice pool and beach. Activities on site or near by.

This place was gorgeous, right on the water with stunning views from an oceanfront room. Plenty to do without leaving the property if that’s what you choose to do. We went in the salt water pool then went jet skiing. The rooms are very spacious. They also have entertainment every night. We went in October and it was quite but that’s what I enjoy.
The maintenance gentleman “Dustin” was extremely helpful and polite. At check in Joe gave us some local maps with some great ideas. At check out they were very busy but always had a smile on. Great Staff -- Thank you Linda

Room Tip: I would get an Ocean view, nothing better than waking up or going to bed with that view.

The rooms were comfortable, clean with a lovely view of the ocean. The bathroom could be updated (chipped paint, etc) but the water pressure was excellent and always hot. The view was excellent, the beach front very well maintained, and there were always deckchairs available. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not a five start resort but very sensible and centrally located for the more budget minded. Very good restaurants nearby. Could be a bit noisy on the weekend when the Tiki bar music is going strong.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, stay away from the rooms closest to the Tiki bar
