Stayed at Glunz Ocean Beach Resort for a few days last month- super nice place, very relaxing, right on the beach (which is one of the nicest we have visited in the keys). Plenty of towels, chairs, tables & umbrellas. Pool and hot tub were also nice- with drink service available from the bar/restaurant next door Havana Jacks. Food was...

Great location. We arrived a bit early and Heather got up to see if our room was ready. It was not so we went to the beach bar for a bite and a drink. Great grouper sandwich and they even had Narragansett beer. Being from New England we thought that was funny. Helpful and friendly staff. Watched the sun come...

We have just returned from our 5 night stay here & loved every minute! This hotel is right on the beach, the rooms are spacious and the owners have thought of everything! We arrived early for check in but it wasn't a problem. There's enough sun beds for all so we had an hour on the beach waiting! Our room...

We chose this hotel bc of the price of the room & location in Marathon.The front desk girl knew what days/dates we were staying & not once, ever, did she say the prices change based on day. Switch & Bait. She gave us the total price with taxes & fees but at check out, it was much higher. Never will...

This is a new one for us. On any travel review websites, we have never received a complaint of misleading or misquoting prices. There appears to be some sort of misunderstanding or a failure to understand which has caused your frustration, and for that we are sorry. Our property is one of the most credible resort properties with a long...

Oddly I wrote my first review for this hotel a few weeks ago and it has vanished. So again -> The hotel is very nice. There is definitely pride of ownership and a dedication to keep an old hotel neat and clean. For the keys, they also have a great beach. My only issue? -> As with many hotels you...

Best place of any on the Keys. Friendly. Clean. Accommodating. Best beach. Returning next year and bringing the family! Key Colony Beach is a hidden paradise. Good fishing there and close by. Gluntz is concerned about the coral reef and does something about it. Very important and we thank them for that.

We wanted a small, beach front hotel or motel for our one night stay in the keys, and this property fit the bill! The garden suite was roomy for 3 of us, and the restaurant on site was amazing! (oysters and lobster tail....yum!) Definitely will be back--private beach with smooth sand, dogs allowed in garden suites, price point was reasonable...

The hotel is a very short drive off Hwy 1 so away from all the traffic. Our 2 queen bed room was on the 3rd floor with a great view looking out over the ocean. The room was not huge but big enough for the 4 of us and very clean. It was a bit pricey but comparable to similar...
