Full deposit due 7 days prior to arrival. If you cancel inside of 7 days prior to arrival the full deposit will be forfeited. For stays during holidays and special events a full deposit is due 30 days prior to arrival. If you cancel 30 days prior to arrival the full deposit will be forfeited.


Opal Key Resort & Marina provides self-parking for $30 per day or valet parking for $40 per day. Please note the clearance height of the garage is 6’8″. We do not have parking available for oversized vehicles or trailers. Please check with us in advance to provide options.


The credit or debit card used for booking must be the same card presented for payment along with a valid photo ID upon check-in. In addition to the deposit(s) taken prior to arrival, a pre-authorization amount will be placed on your card at check-in. This is a temporary hold of a specific amount – it is not a charge to your account, but it can create a hold on those funds or against credit availability. We also may charge your card for any damages to the room or premises you or your guests cause. Once your actual incurred charges are posted at check-out, based on your bank, credit card company, or institution’s policy, it can take anywhere from 24 hours to 30 days for the original pre-authorization amount to be removed. It is your responsibility to be aware of how your bank, credit card company, or institution handles all of your transactions, including pre-authorizations. The hotel will not be responsible for any delay in releasing funds, or returning availability or any fees or charges by your bank, credit card company, or institution as a result of your use of a credit or debit card. We are unable to remove pre-authorizations directly through our hotel. We do not accept any third-party billing. This policy applies for all reservations.
