    On the GN FAQ page they say that they have Keurig machines and it costs $10 for 4 cups.

    Why can't I bring my own K Cups?

    You can bring your own K-cups! I did last trip and am bringing some this upcoming trip too.
    The ones that are supplied in the room are packaged in a box so just move this box to the side and use your own! :thumbsup:

    Yep, you can use your own. Don't forget Keurig's are also great hot water dispensers. Good for making Starbucks Via, tea, hot chocolate, and instant oatmeal!

    They ARE great for Starbucks VIA. My room last weekend surprisingly did not have any coffee cups in it. I called and asked for 2, and the housekeeper brought me 2 paper cups. I thought that was kind of cheesy for a 4* hotel. Then the next night I had to call and ask for 2 more. Again, paper cups arrived. There also was not any cream or sugar for those $10 Keurig cups.

    That's true... I also like to keep some of those free ketchup packets in my briefcase. Vwala... Tomato soup! Saves me money on lunch!

    Honestly though, having worked in hotels for over 25 years, I'd rather not use a hotel room coffee mug.

    GN Keurig Machines

    When we were there in May we bought the K coffee at Walgreens. Also picked up a couple of cheap coffee mugs there. It saved us space in our luggage to not have to drag it along. As for cream & sugar (splenda in my case) I got that at whatever restaurant we ate in. Our problem was something to stir it with! Oops!

    My friend in his home machine uses Melitta e-filter which is basically the shape of a keurig cup, but allows us to use our own choice of coffee and refil. The cups are screened. It says they are for use with most keurig style single serve coffee brewers so unless the casinos have something unusually styled, they will work. Five of them cost under ten dollars. I bought a box on Amazon and I'll give them a try next trip as the D has the Keurig as well, with $2.50 charged per cup.

    And you think they clean the inside of the machine or decanter differently? People use cups and coffee decanters every single day in hotels all over the world and do not get sick. I personally think it is an overblown myth. I know in the hotel I work in, I would not hesitate to use a cup in a room. If you work in a hotel that you feel differently about, I would look for a new job, or if you are in management, look for new employees.

    I know we've gotten a bit off topic but.....in my early 20's I was a chambermaid in a resort ski town.....we would wash the glasses and cups with the rag we cleaned the bathroom with and whatever cleaning solution we were provided with :eek:....let's just say that I ALWAYS re-wash the glasses & cups in any room I stay in now with soap & lots of hot water !!!

    To be safe, it is probably a good idea. I hope your housekeeping supervisor was canned though, lol. I am sure it happens everywhere, but as a routine, shouldn't be accepted even by the worst hotel company (not naming names). At least the Keurigs are a little more sanitary than the old machines.....I think. We have just started using them. I will keep an eye on the housekeepers to see how they clean them. Our hotel, and all hotels should, have racks of glasses and cups on each floor. They are replaced everyday when the room is serviced. Dirty ones go through the dishwasher.

    I have to say I like the disposable coffee cups in the rooms as i usually brew my coffee and leave the room right away to start my day. Don't think I'd want a ceramic mug walking around outside :haha:
