My wife and I stayed at the newly renovated Postcard Inn. It was formerly known as Holiday Isle Resort and Marina. You would normally stop here to go to the big tiki hut . You would stop and get a rum runner on your way to Key West. The hotel had been extremely run down over the past twenty years. Well let me tell you. Not only should you stop here you should stay here. We stayed in room 135. It was an awesome king room with a wonderful ocean view. The room was stylish and roomy. The bed was quite comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and well kept up. The new management has done a wonderful job and they were all, quite helpful. We had a wonderful time and would gladly stay here again. The only minus if it is one is that there was always a large crowd and always a band playing. The entertainment stopped at 5pm. That was kind of a disappointment. It did not take away from us having fun though. So, if you are going to the keys and don't want to go all the way to Key West try the Post Card Inn.

Good Day Dosentplay, Thanks for staying at Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina at Holiday Isle, and for taking time to post a review. So glad you enjoy the enhancements we've made. Our Tiki Bar and restaurants continue to be a popular stopping off point for folks traveling down the keys. I get a little bummed when Micah and his Barstool Sailors end their set as well! They play every Sunday from 1p-5p in the Tiki Bar. Certainly a great way to spend an afternoon! We hope to see you again soon. Wish You Were Here, Jason

I felt like I was back in the Movie Cocktails with the tropical setting and the bar. Loved the rooms. Place is awesome for cyclists, outdoor lovers and a person who enjoys a relaxing drink in a laid back atmosphere with really cool adults.

Jaws Raw Bar now has a new menu which is extremely over priced and not kid friendly. The older bartender is rude every single time I have been. I will not return to eat there. However, rooms are very nice and hotel and beach staff great!

Greetings Beth21Keys, We appreciate hearing the good as well as areas to improve. I'm extremely disappointed to learn of the negative interaction you had with a Raw Bar bartender and be assured I will follow up appropriately. Our Chef has recently added some delicious new items to the Raw Bar menu - at various price points - and there is a little bit of something for everyone. Stay tuned for even more new items soon. I invite you to give us another try and please feel free to reach out to me directly so that I can personally oversee the details. Best Regards, Jason

My husband and I traveled here driving down from Miami. The bars were super cool, and I recommend the burger at Shula Burger. We really loved the boutique feel of the hotel. Though the door to our room didn't seem to seal well, it was a bit loud. The staff was friendly. I recommend an oceanview room as well. Our bathroom did have these tiny ants running around, but I found this at another hotel further down in the keys. Not too bothersome, but I saw a few others made the same comment. Drinks are a bit pricey, but we are on vacation...

Dear DoLittleDigger, Thanks for making Postcard Inn Beach Resort in Islamorada a recent getaway from the Mainland. We're glad you and your husband enjoyed relaxing with us! I've shared your comment about the tiny bathroom sugar ants with our pest control partner who treats our guestrooms monthly - it's a seasonal thing Florida Keys residents and visitors experience every once in a while. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon. Wish You Were Here, Jason

Girls weekend to Islamorada for the 1st annual Rum Runner Run. What fun!!! The boutique charm of the Postcard Inn, gorgeous location, and friendly staff made it completely understandable why everyone we met said they never wanted to leave! Very relaxing trip, we are already planning the next visit!

With regard to beach front properties, this is a decent one. Good, clean and reliable. In this price range, its pretty darn good. Not the best hotel I've ever seen, but a decent place! Really fun beach style bars, a few of them, and a few pools. Hardly a high end luxe (which is where I tend to stay$ but I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.

If you get an ocean view room, you'll get a nice view of sunrises!

Location on Islamorada is good, right in the middle of thing. Drive to Key West in a few hours. Nearby Marina for fishing, and water sports facility right on the property.

Room Tip: As always, I suggest the best room category you can afford. If you don't need ocean view howeve...
