The Casa Marina is by far the nicest hotel on Key West. The rooms are newly renovated and comfortable and the hotel has the largest and best private beach on the island. My boyfriend and I just returned from a week in Key West and the Casa Marina is what made our trip really special. It's perfectly located - far enough away from Duval St. that you aren't bothered by the party animal fray but close enough that you can enjoy a nice dinner and stroll back to the property.
The beach is what really sets it apart. It's beautiful and the staff is remarkably attentive. They bring around free water, a frozen cocktail and ice pops everyday to cool you down. There are almost hammocks along the beach so you can lay down and relax and listen to the waves.The Sun Sun restaurant is affordable and serves fresh light food - which is hard to come by on the island. Overall, the staff was warm, friendly, polite and very hospitable.
Overall, I would definitley go back and if you are looking to save some money on a beach vacation Key West is a great place to go and the Casa Marina is the place to stay. Oh - if you are thinking about upgrading to a beach front room - do it and request a room on the ground level. You'll have a little patio where you can watch the sunrise and sunset.
