• Hotel Rooms  (Information updated 3-15-2023)

    The Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino is the venue for the conference and where our largest block of rooms is located.  We have also been able to arrange for a small room block, with a limited number of rooms, at the Margaritaville, next door to the Golden Nugget for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights, June 13, 14, and 15.  If you are interested in this option, please note, there is a limited number of rooms in our block, and the nightly rate per room is a little higher than at the Golden Nugget.  Information for each hotel and the protocols for making room reservations are detailed below.


    Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino Room Block Information

    The Golden Nugget has a block of rooms being held for the MASSP / MASEA / MSASPA conference. The hotel room block will remain established until the cutoff date, May 29, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. or until the room block is depleted. The group rate is not guaranteed to be available after the cutoff date or depletion of rooms.  For those whose room is being paid for by a tax exempt district/organization, a current letter of tax exemption must be provided to the hotel.  It can be sent in with the payment if mailed in advance of the conference or brought in with the payment at the time of check-in.

    To make a reservation by phone, please call 1-800-777-7568 and provide group code S230337 for the MASSP / MAESA / MSASPA room block rates.  For rooms reserved by phone, there will be no initial charge on the credit card used to reserve and hold the room/rooms. 
    To make room reservations online, use the link below. No group code is required if making a reservation online.
    PLEASE NOTE, if your reservation is made online, the first night's room rate and applicable fees will be charged at the time the  reservation is made on the credit card used to reserve and hold the room.

    Upon check-in, a credit card or debit card will be required for an incidental deposit of $100 per stay.  If no incidental charges are made to the room during the hotel stay, then the card will be credited with the $100 deposit upon checkout.

    Guests have until check in to amend their departure date without penalty. After this time, should a guest depart earlier than indicated, there will be a $50 early departure fee that would be considered an incidental charge and debited on the credit/debit card mentioned in the preceding paragraph.

    Check-in time is after 4:00 p.m. and checkout time is 11:00 a.m.


    Margaritaville Room Block Information:

    Reservations at the Margaritaville can be made by calling 228-271-6377, Extension 3055.  Our block is listed under the Mississippi Association of Secondary School Principals.  Be sure to reference this when calling. The price of  each room is $175.10 plus all applicable state and local taxes and a resort fee of $19.99. A credit card guarantee will be required for each individual reservation.  A $100 incidental deposit per night is required upon check-in. If the funds are not used, the deposit will be released upon check out.  Please note, if a room is being paid for by a tax-exempt district, then there must be an up-to-date letter of tax exemption provided to the Margaritaville before check-in.  If you have any questions about this, please clarify them at the time your reservation is made.


    Individual room cancellations must be received no less than 72 hours prior to arrival in order to avoid forfeiture of one night’s room and tax.
    ... The hotel agrees to send at no charge confirmation of reservations and/or reservation changes to the registered guests within seven (7) days of receipt of such information.
    … Room block and reservation procedures will be loaded into the hotel’s central reservation and/or property management system.
    … Name changes to reservations may be made 72 hours prior to arrival at no charge, if there is no change to arrival and departure dates.
    … CHECK-IN TIME is 4:00 PM and CHECK OUT TIME 11:00AM.

    Please note this: should we not sell all of the rooms in the block by May 12, 2023, then the price of the rooms will go up to $229.00 plus all applicable state and local taxes and fees, even if reservations have already been made.   Hopefully, we will be able to fulfill our block number so that does not come into play, but keep this in mind.
