Over the 5 days I was there I found the staff more than accommodating and generous with their time. The pool, beach area and rooms were always kept clean and refreshed on a continuous basis. The location was great with Key West a short drive away without having to deal with the crowds.

The Glunz, what an odd name, is a bit off the beaten path but well worth they time and money. When we began our last minute search for an affordable room at the very height of the tourist season in the keys, we didn't find lots of options. When we came across the Glunz, it seemed too good to be... More

We were in the Keys mid-March and Spring Break was heating up. My husband and I were winging it through the Keys and discovered the relatively quiet and tucked away from the main drag area of Key Colony. After a quick call to the resort we booked a room for a night. We weren't there ten minutes before we decided... More

I can't say enough good things about Glunz. It was clean, welcoming and a perfect location for our trip, which was based in Marathon but had us visiting up and down the keys. The room was basic and comfortable, and included all the amenities we needed, and more. We had a toddler with us and when it was time to... More

This hotel and resort was exactly what we were looking for a quick get away weekend. It reminded me of another that we visit every year and thought, why not try it. It's adorably perfect and the staff is amazing and anxious at assist in anyway the can. Very welcoming, clean and quiet. I'd highly recommend and already have to... More

We chose this resort because of ability to have a suite including a kitchen. It was an outstanding suite. Kitchen was great with everything necessary to make cooking simple and efficient. The suite had been recently upgraded with high end furnishings that were great. I have difficulty sleeping in all beds, and found this one to be excellent. Overall this... More

It's Spring Break and accommodation is scarce, we managed to book a room at Gluntz's via the Internet and we were not disappointed. The room was ocean facing, clean, two queen beds, adequate bathroom and some kitchen facilities ( microwave, coffee maker, fridge) My only criticism is the price but everything in the Keys seems expensive, the further south towards...

The room had been updated shower and kitxhen, staff was great even had... More

The Glunz Ocean Beach Hotel and Resort on Colony Key, which is a small key, ocean side, about mid Marathon Key, is a Florida Keys gem. This family owned resort has everything one needs -- sandy beach, pool and hot tub by the ocean, a Tiki bar, restaurant, fishing pier, and even an adjacent liquor store fully stocked. There is...

Stayed overnight at the end of the February with two friends while on a quick road trip around the Keys. The room was not overly large for three people sharing, but it was very clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. Not surprisingly, the place has a friendly feeling I expected from a family-owned enterprise. I think the highlight is the beach/pool... More
