I was here for a week long business meeting. A good night's sleep and a nice restaurant with very nice staff. I enjoyed the hotel and the neighborhood. At the end of my stay I was surprised with a $25 per night resort fee on my bill. The desk person nonchalantly said that it had to do with the timing...

We know the local area pretty well and wanted a place to get away to the beach for a night. The Postcard Inn seemed like a good, affordable choice and the buzz around town is that it has a cool mid century vibe. Pulling up, the front is great and adheres to the mid century aesthetic. The lobby is really...

We stayed over the long MLK weekend. Enjoyed the hotel, the only complaint is that the walls are super thin. Our drunk neighbors kept us up quite awhile. We had a Garden View room and there was a wedding out on the lawn that went on for hours. Again, more noise than we cared to be around for such an...

I live in the area, and wanted to entertain a guest at the beach and not have to pay an arm and a leg for a room. So, PCI it was. We actually had a great time. It's not fancy, and I wasn't expecting fancy. We spent three nights, and it was crowded. You can tell it's an older hotel....

We are camping at Fort DeSoto and wanted a beach day. We had stayed at the postcard in a couple years ago but didn't get to enjoy the accommodations there so decided to have lunch at the tiki bar. After having lunch which was excellent we went to the beach where Nick set us up very nicely on the beach....

Location at the beach is excellent. The only thing that is subpar is the hotel itself. It is like dropping a Days Inn in a nice location. Two floors with stairways in 3 locations to get to rooms. No elevator. The thermostat in the room I think is for looks only to make it look like your doing something. I...

Had a great time everything was great. Beach attendant John was awesome went above and beyond to make our days at the beach enjoyable. He was also very knowledgable about the area when we asked if he knew where to go he gave us plenty of options both near the beach and down town. Over all stay was excellent room...

Great hotel with great staff. Easy walking distance to a variety of bars and restaurants. Bar staff were great. John did a great job with the beach rentals. Stay pool side if you can, a worth while upgrade. We will come back.

This place is not they tell you it is. Bugs in our room, pool not working, not at all updated like they claim. Had to leave and get another room elsewhere! So disappointed! It's not a family resort, geared more for the college crowd. I give it a thumbs down!!

We stayed here a couple years ago and I liked it, but my husband didn't. I heard there had been improvements--I convinced him to give it another shot. I actually canceled our reservation at the Dolphin and booked PCI instead. Big mistake. AFTER we checked in, we found out the pool was closed (and had been, for a week). The...
