“Great littke spot”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

One thing the Florida Keys lacks are resorts with a true beach. Fortunately Key Colony is different.I have stayed at three of the hotels here but the Glunz by far is the best option. It is newly remodeled.The rooms while on the small side are nice. The standard room has two queen beds, a nice bathroom, 32' flat screen tv and free WiFi and music around the resort. We are staying at the beach level standard and we are just steps from the sand and water.They provide beach chairs and umbrellas on their beach. You also have a great fishing pier and bar/restaurant next door. My family makes it a habit to stay at Key Colony 2-3 weekends a year and from now on this will be our spot.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money to get beach level view. Eliminates the need to go up and down the stairs when...

I have nothing but high praise for this property. Everything is clean, stylish and new! Appreciated the refrig, micro and coffee maker in the room as so many hotels dont include that. Tiki bar next door was great but definitely try Sharky's! Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Property is so small that I dont even think the ocean view room upgrade was necessary.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! I appreciate your mention of the room as being fine for everything. Although the suites are fabulous, if you're traveling on more of a budget or just want to use your money in other ways, our standard rooms are well equipped and you are so right that the size of the property lends itself to enjoying everything no matter what kind of room you have. It's true that great things come in small packages! Thanks for staying and we'll see you next time around!

The pictures did not do justice to the quality of furnishings and personal touches made by this family owned hotel. Customer Service was genuine, helpful, and always present. Staff frequently would ask how your stay was going. Our suite was more than comfortable, clean, and stocked with top of the line pots, pans, appliances, etc. Great views, clean beach, high quality loungers, pier, neighboring Tiki Bar-Restaurant, and great location made our stay most delightful!

Room Tip: A suite on beach level is well worth the additional cost. The view is magnificient!

The newly renovated hotel is family owned and absolutely adorable! The beach is one of the best in the keys (I'm a native Floridian) and the family environment here is fantastic. Everything is clean & updated. The pool isn't very big but perfectly sized, especially when you have a beach at your disposal. There are plenty of games to play on the beach and beautiful blue hammocks & beach chairs to lay on.

We will definitely be coming back!

Our family really enjoyed staying in the King Bedroom suite! The room is beautifully decorated, staff is friendly, new appliances, incredibly comfortable foam sleeper couch..... the list goes on. We enjoyed our view to the ocean and the two steps to the beach. Great place!

Very nice, clean hotel, away from the highway. The staff was helpful. It has a really nice beach and pool area. It is also next to a very nice restaurant/bar. The only issue was not having any cream/sugar available for the Keurig coffee maker in the room.

We love the compliment! We agree it's super here! You should have all coffee condiments in your room; if that didn't happen, we're so sorry and will circle back with housekeeping. Just for future reference, the front desk has a ready supply of extras; we aim to please!

We have been coming to the Hotel for 6 years now. The Glunz Family who had visited for years bought the resort, completely renovated it and transformed it from good to exceptional in 2013. The suites have a separate room with king size bed and the family room has a full kitchen and comfortable pull out queen couch TV and comfortable chairs.. As you step out of your room, you are on the beach with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. We have seen dolphins cruising close to shore on many occasions. The restaurant and bar next store are convenient as well as a fishing pier. This location in Key Colony Beach is centrally located, 1 hour from Key West and 1 hour from Key Largo. The staff is very friendly, caring and accommodating.

Barry S.

Room Tip: Choose the Suite. It costs more, but well worth it for the view.
