We chose to stay at the Casa Marina for our annual Meeting of the Minds fund raiser, but we were not prepared for the additional charges that were not explained before we finalized the reservation. First, they tacked in a $25.00 per night resort charge for using their (unheated) pool with NO WHIRLPOOL! Then they tacked on an $18.00 per night self parking charge, or a $25.00 per night valet parking charge. so the $199.00 per night basic room fee actually became a $243.00 per night charge for the basics. And this does not cover the fact that there was no free coffee. The free expresso was the grossest thing we have ever tried, like drinking cardboard coffee in a cup.
The fact is that you could get out of the parkig charge by parking on the street just on the other side of the wall from the self park lot, and they did provide our group with a free shuttle to get back anf forth from the hotel to the Key West facilities, but the down side will never offset the extra charges. In the future, we will booka room at the Truman Annex.
