I would agree with the other poor review on here. We usually try to find hotels on the cheaper side, but this is by far the worst one we have ever stayed at. From all the good reviews, I'm not sure if we just got a bad room or what. The faucet was falling off the sink the shower was... More

Very clean and quiet. Nice place to stay and sleep...like home. Next time I will choose El Patio again. :)) There's a Spanish Bakery ( Panaderia España) near the place, with good food, pastry, and wines. Try the caldo gallego soup!

I stayed at El Patio on multiple occasions. It's a great value. The bed was comfortable, you can walk to the beach, the pool is nice, the staff was very helpful every time. If you think you won't be spending much time in your room (which you shouldn't because you should be at the beach drinking pina coladas), then this... More

The place is conveniently located away from the main street of where all shops, hotels and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a double room. The room is definitely no frills, but I felt like it was a nice value. To get to Carolina Beach you walk one long block, three short blocks, and across an overpass to the side of the road where the resorts are. Angela is wonderful. Some of the bedding was a... More
