We did a girls trip in the Keys and tried to do a mix of nice and value lodgings. My friends initially made fun of me for booking El Patio, but quickly changed their minds. Is it 4 star? Definitely not. But it was clean, the room was large, it had a fridge and the pool was nice. It was... More

My husband and I were very much looking forward to our stay at El Patio Motel. Unfortunately, we never made it there. 1 day into a 14 day vacation, while staying initially at a more northern location, my husband's mother passed away unexpectedly. With such short notice I was not sure El Patio Motel would be able to help us... More

We stayed one night. Key West is pricey, but this seems more reasonable at around 200usd. The rooms are "vintage", but clean and comfortable. Nice pool. Location is good within walking distance of most things. Wifi was acceptable. I could stay here again.

We picked this hotel because it was the closest to the historical centre that we could afford. It turned out to be perfect. We love Old historic houses and styes,so this place ticked all the boxes. We stayed in room 9 downstairs and it was great. The ned seemed new and was super comfy. The room had a good size... More

The outdoor deck was under repair,,would have enjoyed sitting out there. jEff at the front desk was helpful on Friday night when our smoke alarm was going off.A bit... More

One of the cheaper places to stay and a bit of a walk to lower Duval. Very basic, and while it has an in-room fridge, there was no coffee maker. Our room was large, with 2 rooms with a bed in each, but no where else to sit.

As other reviewers have stated, this is no Ritz Carlton. Hell, it's not even a Hampton Inn. But myself, like other reviewers have also stated, found this little gem by searching for the most inexpensive hotel in Downtown Key West. When you start looking for hotels in Key West, you'll find that, unfortunately, inexpensive in Key West is actually pretty... More
