Great hotel with great service! a short cab ride to duval st. it has a great beach and pool. The employees are very nice. i have stayed at the westin and here and i chose here. The breakfast buffet is very good.
- Free Wifi
My wife and I visited in early May. The front desk staff and the bellmen were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The hotel is very well maintained for its age, and dining outside near the Gulf of Mexico is a wonderful experience. It has the perfect ambience for Key West and for making memories.
It will be my choice should I return again to Key West.

Hotel was just Ok. The carpet and hallways are in need of updates. The room was just ok, the view was of the A/C unit and roof, so wasn't really worth the cost of an expensive room. I wouldn't call this a Waldorf Astoria hotel, so if the connotation is a luxury hotel, this isn't it. The restaurant was good, and a great experience being able to eat a good tasting meal right on the beach. The walls and floors are paper thin.
Definitely need more than 3 days in Key West!!!
The hotel was beautiful! Had two pools, one for adults, the other for families. Great poolside service and loved that you could request lounge chairs for days at a time. Room was much bigger than what I had expected, we stayed in a room with an ocean view..wish it had a little more of a view, but we weren't in the room that much anyways for it to matter. Service was excellent, Nick at the front door was great, always remembered us and helped us to make food decisions by offering local suggestions! Would definitely go back!
Only small down side...the beach. There is sand and blurb water, but you can't walk from the sand into the water, you access the water from the pier. The pools made up for it and would not stop me from going back.
My wife and I stayed at the Casa Marina for 4 nights starting May 15th. We had a grand ocean room with a balcony and it also included the breakfast package. I was apprehensive about our trip to the hotel as i read many negative reviews about the Casa Marina. This was our first trip to Key West. The property was located on a small beach on the "quiet side" of the island. My understanding is that most of the hotels in KW do not have a beach or have a small beach.
The highlight of the stay was the breakfast buffet which was excellent. The room was clean and we loved the balcony which had 2 lounges and 2 chairs. The pool was not crowded during our stay. We also enjoyed the hammocks.
The exterior views from the hotel are excellent. The only negative during our stay was a dinner which was supposed to the Toes in the Sand that was cancelled due to wind conditions. We had dinner by the pool and we had a terrible waiter who only interacted with us to take our order and then we did not see him until the check came
Upon arrival to the Casa, we carried our bags into the lobby… Something I thought would have been done for us… But anyway… We arrived with our party, 2 other couples. It was our wedding weekend. All three rooms were not ready, and ours was suppose to be an upgraded room, since we were getting married, but our friends got it. They graciously switched with us, but all weekend, they kept getting our champagne that was complimentary and strawberries..Something that wouldn't normally be a big deal, however, it was a hassle having them bring us that stuff every night.
The second day, after we had our chocolate covered strawberries the desk sent up (for free), ANTS had invaded our room and took over the plate the strawberries had been on. We didn't put the plate outside the door of the room, so they were all over everything! Even though we were on the 3rd floor.
The resort, pool, and beach area was nice. But the bar and food in the restaurant were WAY over priced. I had some delicious peel and eat shrimp at the resort, but everything was very expensive. The grounds were clean, and on Easter Sunday the whole place got to hunt eggs with the kids, a super fun gesture. I thought we could have stayed somewhere much cheaper for what we got. With the name and price I expected much more. We still had a beautiful wedding weekend and our guests had a wonderful time, but the Casa was not for us.
