We stayed here while touring the Keys. Only 4 days wish it was weeks. The hotel has been totally renovated. Brand new. We stayed in suite, ocean front. It was lovely. Great mattress and bedding. Bathroom was nicer than mine at home! All appliances are brand new. Very very clean hotel inside and outside. They have daily housekeeping, provide everything from robes to use to qtips and cotton balls. Shampoos, soaps, paper towels provided, bathroom towels are not that real cheap ones.. You don't have to rent umbrella Or chairs, they are provided and located on their small beach. Water shoes are even provided. Staff is accommodating and helpful. Groundskeeper never stopped. Wonderful bathroom, shower, makeup table. Great furniture. View wonderful too. I can not say any thing negative about Glunz. Laundry just feet away, I was even able to buy roll of quarters from front desk, didn't have to go to a bank! All floors tiled, which is so easy to clean, they are not slippery either. Pool very nice too. My only suggestion to them would be to extend pool, hot tubs hours till at least 11pm.

Room Tip: Get a suite.

If you are looking for a family-friendly getaway this is the place! Beautiful ocean views, sandy beach, pool-very relaxing. The hotel was recently remodeled, very "key west" style with bright rooms and comfortable beds. We had an oceanview view room 3rd floor on the corner. You can see miles of ocean from our room The staff were outstandinbg, especially Michael, Roxy, Roxanne and Kendra, they made us feel right at home and recommended great restaurants too, including the restaurant adjacent to the hotel-delicious food by the way:) If you are looking for a hotel that is not wild and crazy, but are looking for tranquility this place is for you.

Absolutely fabulous hotel! One of the best hotels I have ever stayed! We had a one bedroom room with a kitchen and living room. The room was beautiful, colors were bright and cheerful; upscale all the way: art, linens, bathroom tile and fixtures, furniture, TVs, appliances, and furniture. Ocean view, nice pool, and beach. Would highly recommend this hotel. Considering the prices in the Keys, this was a good value.

You're super for giving us such high praise! Our goal is to be the only place you think of when planning a Florida Keys trip. The décor and room appointments are just some of the things that set us apart. We are truly happy that you had a really grand vacation and will look forward to your return visit, soon, we hope!

We stayed here the week of May 13th 2013 for our anniversary. I've been traveling to the Keys for vacation for over 15 years & this is one of the nicest places to stay. It is a very safe & quiet area with a good swimming beach too. We don't care for the crowds in the Key West area so this area is always a favorite. The staff at the hotel were very friendly & helpful. Rooms had just been remodeled & were awesome! Absolutely recommended.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on the way back to Miami from Key West - and from the moment we saw the beach & pool area we were over the moon with our choice of stay.
We had booked an Ocean View room - and were extremely glad we had - the beach is truly gorgeous, with bright white sand and a nice amount of sunbeds to laze about on.
The pool was also a nice area to relax in - especially as the hotel was quite quiet at the time - which made for a very relaxing few hours cooling down.
Nice bar next door to enjoy a cooling beverage or two too - nice location considering the size of the tiny island its located on.
