coffee situation in rooms

What's the coffee situation in the room? Is it k-cups? Is there creamer available to purchase in the hotel gift shop?

It is K-cups. I know they have creamer (powder) and sugar/sugar alternatives in the room. However, I am unsure if they creamer for sale at the hotel. I did not see any in the gift shop at PBH or RPR.

They had an individual liquid creamer in our room at the RPR last week to go along with the k-cups. You can get milk in the gift shop or purchase some creamer at the Orchid Court lounge in the mornings when they have the a la carte breakfast. They have it in a large dispenser.

As other posters have said, its K cups. We packed individual packages of liquid creamer in his preferred flavor - I know international delights and coffee mate make these - and this worked great.

We always take our own coffee maker and supplies. We have to have our coffee.

Is it safe to assume the coffee is complimentary?

What they put in your room is complimentary so you don't have to worry about that. I believe it's just if you ask for more more more! that they begin to charge you

They used to put a tray of extra K-cups in the top drawer above the bar cooler in the room. Is this no longer the case?

I don't remember seeing any coffee maker in the regular room (not suite) at Cabana Bay. I had a refillable mug that I filled at the Bayside Diner.

I'm not keen on hotel room pot coffee makers; k cups are less gross. I may not have noticed.

When did they start charging you? We've always requested more and received free of charge.
