We hand a wonderful time, nice relaxing resort. Nice Beach , pool and bar. We stayed in the Garden suites, and were a little concerned it might be a little loud because of foot traffic around the bar at night. However it was very quiet inside the room.

Front desk was beyond helpful and and very knowledgeable. She gave us an upgrade to an ocean view room. They had fire pits and games on beach. Restaurant next to property had decent food and a live one man band that was very good. The only thing we did wrong was not spend more time here.

My husband and I stayed at the Glunz on a recent trip to the Keys. We stayed in a king suite on the third floor and loved every minute of it. The room was very clean and comfortable. We were very happy with the provided extras in the kitchen, which allowed us to eat in a few meals. The pool... More

3rd floor king suite. Beautiful view, roomy, nicely decorated, and clean. Loved the location. We had a rough start at check in, but front desk manager,Elizabeth, helped us settle into a beautiful upgrade after the first night. The sunrises and views are amazing.

We enjoyed our stay very much. It was a convenient and affordable place to use as the jumping off point to an excursion to Key West. The only negative thing we encounter was a bad waitress at the restaurant. Food was good but she wasn't up to the task.

Loved it! Our room was very clean and quiet and the staff was friendly and helpful. The location right on the beach couldn't be better! The only thing that could be improved is some lighting under the fishing pier might make the fishing a little better for the kids in the evening.

Thank you Brian, We're so happy to hear you enjoyed everything about your stay. I know there's some kind of light limit we have to obey to not distract the turtles to our beaches, so we apologize about the lighting. Other than that, we certainly look forward to seeing you again in the near future. More

This hotel is one of the noisiest hotels we have ever stayed in! There are no private balconies, so if you are trying to sit outside you constantly have to stand up and let people, including screaming, running children go past. Not relaxing at all. Then, if you want to sit inside, you can't leave your balcony door open as... More

The location right off of the beach is perfect and hard to find in the Keys. The hotel has been renovated from an older design so the rooms are small. However, we found it charming and fun.
