                      Location was good. Right on the beach and close to the places we needed to visit. Walk to restaurants. Wildwood inside hotel very good.

                      We were put in 2 rooms right outside the entrance because of the mess up with the reservation. Big Mistake. There is a Ping Pong table within a few steps of our rooms and even tho the staff told us they shut it down at 9pm, I had to call both nights. Upstairs guests were extremely loud or it just might have been the thin walls. Although hotel is remodeled, still very dated bathrooms and pool area.

                      Our experience there was quite good, inspite of the unsesonable cold weather. Might return when it is warmer and a better value.

                      We had a fantastic dinner at the BBQ restaurant! Loved the music playing all day in the courtyard and the beautiful lanterns strung in the trees. Nice atmostphere and the pool was large and spacious! The lobby area was so comfortable, my husband and I found ourselves relaxing and reading from the great selection of books on the display case. It was a great get-away and we would visit the PostCard Inn again, especially since it was so nice and clean.

                      I wasn't crazy about the fact that people can carry their drinks into the pool. We were traveling with kids and would rather not have had drinking in the pool, however, we came during the week and it wasn't too crowded. We would visit again but only during the week, we were told that the weekends are not as family friendly as it is during the week.

                      Friendly manager. Location. Excellent staff in beach snack bar.

                      reception staff poor and hardly looked you in the eye. Suspect lack of experience which is a real shame given the look and feel of a really cool hotel in the style of a surf shop or hollister type place. Room had potential if some what tired in its up keep but overall nice location. Found that the hot and cold taps were set up wrong way round. I did mention to reception (as I collected a hair dryer as not standard in a room) and were quite condersending in my mention of it saying some of the maintainance team had a sence of humour. Fine we all have but perhaps training in customer care would have resolved this in a constructive way to the people paying the bills. Overall nice hotel and location.

                      I liked that the hotel was really close to the beach.

                      I did not like the fact that the pictures were deceiving and the walls were paper thin and could hear everyone. Not only could we hear our neighbors, but we could hear upstairs and down a few rooms. I could hear other people's conversations and when they were using the bathroom, which in itself, was a sad one. If I knew the pictures would've been that misleading I wouldn't have spent over $100/night there. I would've only spent like $60 to $80 at the most. Aside from it being right on the beach, it sucked! And the beach bar was a joke. The bartenders were rude and we waited for 10 minutes to get a drink order! There was a total of 25 customers and everyone already had their drinks! Apparently, we were just being overlooked. I'm sure my boyfriend and I look under age, but the fact is we are both 27 and I'm sure we were older than the bartenders. I asked for a whiskey shot, and asked for Hennesey and the lady corrected me and said it was a Cognac. I was shocked, because obviously I'm not a heavy drinker and she gave me this dirty look like I should know that. In other words, they didn't have it and if she wanted to make some money, she should have suggested a different shot. Needless to say, we bought only one drink each and left her a dollar. Regardless, the room was paid for and not satisfying but we stayed for both the days it was reserved for. I would definetly not stay there again!!!

                      Location, laid back, sunsets, live music Cute decor

                      Showerhead needs replacing- single stream refrigerator doesn't work (yes, it was plugged in) no hairdryer thermostat doesn't work, air conditioning not under our control. Bad pillows. but mostly- noisy neighbors throughout nights (literally) and staff not motivated or willing to correct- we even offered to change rooms. We finally bought ear plugs and endured through the last night, we won't go back. Too bad, we have a daughter in college nearby and we hoped to find a place to stay for visits over the next few years. This isn't it.

                      I was extremely disappointed with this hotel. The rooms are very noisy ( no sound insulation), the water in the bathroom shower would change super hot to cold off and on. For the price rate one would expect to have at least a coffee maker in the room but nooooooo to that. They did not offer complimentary breakfast either ( even at the cheap horrible Comfort Inn they offer breakfast), the staff at the Post Card inn was not very gracious with their customer services skills when I asked for ice, since the 2 (only) icemakers in the hotel were not providing ice because they could not handle the volume of guests. The hotel had a snack shack that offered only greasy horrible food ( it would close from 10:00 to 11:00am), the hotel restaurant was ok but very expensive for what they were as lounge style. The room service was horrible, they left a clorox dripping rag on the top of one of the room shelves and it bleached my shirt. For that the manager offered me $50.00 off of my room rate which at the end it was mean less. I ended up paying the same amount posted on my reservation. I am very irritated, I feel cheated for my money and to top it all up at night by the beach there were rats everywhere, and day time they would charge $6.00 per hr to lay on the chair by the water. Imagine that???? Can it get any worse???

                      Grounds were well kept and scenic; beach was groomed and close. Food and drink were highly accessible; room was comfortable and overall the poalce was eclectic in design and retro in decor.

                      There was no fridge in the room and no hair dryer. The young crowd was a bit noisy after midnight
