I took a real chance – coming to Key West for the very first time and by myself. I was coming upon the one-year anniversary of my fiance’s unexpected death; and I knew that I had to be somewhere special on that difficult day. A friend at work mentioned to me that her friends loved the Key Lime Inn. From the ease of booking the reservation on their web site, the friendly email reminders they sent me, the quick and easy check in to the sorrowful checkout and good bye’s with the staff; I knew that this was a special destination.
I was looking for a nice quite respite where I could find peace and centering. I found it. The hotel is centrally located to everything I wanted to do. I was able to easily walk to all four corners of the island – I am not kidding (over 60 miles of walking in a week) I saw everything that a tourist would want to see. The hotel was always just a short stroll back from any destination for a quick undisturbed nap – so I could go back out for more.
The staff were wonderful. They were so nice, and so understanding of my situation. I was often alone with my grief and their smiling faces brought me back to the real world. The room was clean, well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast every morning hit the spot for a day of adventures. In the evening, the neighborhood was quiet. I didn’t do a lot of swimming; but the pool was convenient and comfortable (temperature controlled).
I will be back to Key West and I will be back to the Key Lime Inn. The hotel and staff are a permanent part of the memory of this week of centering and I will always be grateful for how much the Key Lime Inn helped me to get back into the world of the living – after a year of grief and sadness.By: Jeffrey Miller on January 2, 2015
