Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina
Ranked #9 of 19 Hotels in Islamorada
Reviewed 23 November 2012

We were here for my sister’s wedding. I work in the industry so my standards are fairly high and the rooms (bathrooms in particular) could use some love. It seems they renovated the living area but as many hotels do they didn't spend money on the bathroom, which to me other than the bed is the most important part. Just wish companies wouldn't overlook this.
We had a suite in the main building and the view was outstanding. For a getaway party experience this was a nice place to stay. Unfortunately you can hear the music from the Tiki Bar in the room, and if you are up most of the night partying this is not a big deal, if you’re not this could be an issue. They did move my mother before even checking her into a room knowing that noise could be an issue and they have a sign at the check in desk about the noise. It was nice to have the raw bar on site for food and several bars, the beach and pool area were very nice too. The wedding was small and the site was very nice. I am not sure why they allowed the jet skis to keep running back and forth by the dock when they had a wedding going on but otherwise it was a very nice night. Little dark at the reception, maybe battery operated candle lights would be better than flame that went out with the wind.

Service at the tiki bar was poor, the bartendars really seemed to have blinders on. The front desk and housekeeping staff were all very nice.

Overall a nice place, I am sure I am more critical than the average person, I only wish that I had better night’s sleep and that the bathrooms had some attention since 1970.

NortheastTravelbug, Greetings from Postcard Inn Beach Resort at Holiday Isle. Thank you for staying with us and we always appreciate feedback, particularly from industy colleagues. Our recent renovations were focused on areas we thought would have the most impact on our guests to enjoy a Florida Keys getaway, and we're making continuing improvements to all areas of the resort. My apologies for the poor service you experienced in our Tiki Bar and be assured we've followed up with the team as appropriate. Our goal is that every guest feels relaxed and comfortable during their time with us. We tried some extended band hours in the Tiki Bar over the holiday week, and based on feedback we've received we've returned to our original format. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you should your travels return you to Islamorada. Best Regards, Jason

Beware $15 hidden charges, eventhough on the travel websites we booked on said it was free. Then they stuck us in room 430, this room was the size of a large shoebox 8x14, we barely had enough room to put our luggage. The room didn't have dark window shades, it was near vending machines and washer/dryer. No ice in the ice machine. I should have taken pictures.

Room Tip: If you want to pay an extra $50 to upgrade room + plus the $15 hidden charges

Good Day Jon D, Thanks for trying Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle, and for providing us with feedback about your stay. Understanding where we can improve is extremely important to us. We have two guestrooms at the resort, 430 and 431, that are smaller compared to our other rooms and feature one queen size bed. They are listed on our website as a "Classic Queen" with one queen size bed. We have ice machines throughout the resort, and unfortunately sometimes folks will fill up their coolers with this ice, leaving a machine empty for a bit. We do sell bags of ice at our convenience store located at the front of the resort. We'll create some new signage to place on the machines, promoting this option to our cooler carrying guests. Our resort fee is disclosed on every site that we are aware of and feel free to contact me directly to let me know where you booked, so I can follow up appropriately. Thanks again for the feedback and we hope you'll try us again should your travels return you to the fabulous Florida Keys. I'd love for you to stay in one of our King rooms. Best Regards, Jason

We spent three days at Postcard Inn and will go back. Props to the maintenance department, which responded immediately to a few small problems (e.g., battery low in the safe). 200 character minimum, so this is the fill.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 300 or 400 building if you have an aversion to late-night music. (Fair's f...

What a great place! Perfect for that lazy vacation when getting up for breakfast - served at the open air bar - is the most strenuous thing on your day's agenda. Heated pool, fire pits, tiki torches - all right on the water.

Stayed in room # 348 which was great room closest to beach but not at ocean front price. Could just see ocean around palm trees. Close walk to Rum Runners Tiki Bar. Room was nice. Beds were very comfy with soft & firmer pillows & nice covers like you get on a cruise ship. Lots of chairs by pool & beach. Beach & pool was clean. All staff was very nice. Beer prices were good. Liquor prices were $7.50.

My husband and I made reservations along with another couple for 2 nights, 3 days. We had a fabulous time, lots of fun! Wonderful view! It was fun and we will go again!! We traveled to Key West one of our days and saw the sites there, only 77 miles from our room. The Tiki Bar was hopping with dancing and live music which was very very good! Drinks were awesome!!

Room Tip: Upper room on ocean view is beautiful
