Old Town Key West is a step outside the modern, hectic world we live in and into a funky and eclectic world of 24/7 summer in the tropics. The island has plenty of old world charm to support this experience. El Patio is right where it should be and everything it needs to be for the traveller who wants to... More

We stayed at the motel for the third time. It's very basic accomadation but it's cheap and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a great location, about a 5 minute walk from southernmost point, southernmost beach and east Duvall street. It's about a 15/20 minute walk to the other end of Duvall street (where Mallory square and... More

We spent a week here and thought we'd gone back to the 60s! We liked the floral lino floor, tired wicker, and wispy towels, they contributed to the non-pretentious ambience. Fabulous location, close enough to Duval Street, but not that close that drunken revellers kept one up at night. Helpful staff made the minor irritations, like the maid service not... More

Decent place, off the beaten path, rooms clean and comfortable. A little dated, and shows its age, rooms typical 60's style, just the necessities. We didn't go to Key West to sit in a room and watch TV, we went to spend time in town, so this is perfect. Prices very reasonable considering it is Key West. Would stay again... More

Where do I start. First of all I had to find a place to stay in Key West with old sister and husband. Reviews were mostly favorable and I had a budget of less than $200 a night in winter. Not an easy task. The onlu way I could meet their budget was a 2 BR "suite". The "suite" was... More

This was our 1st time in Key West. El Patio is par for the course for the area. It is a very rustic area, El Patio is close to Duvall St. That is the main street and has LOTS of action and restaurants. The way this motel is priced, compared to other places, is on par with the other small... More

Okay, so this may not be everyone idea of a great Motel, but my husband and I loved it. Yes, it is a blast from the past. You feel like you've been transported back in time to the 40's or 50's. The room was spacious, had wonderful retro tile and good AC. Only two things that I would improve: The... More

Visited this motel with friends for a 2 night stay whilst visiting USA. The rooms we were allocated were huge with a refrigerator and kettle as standard. My wife had to ask for a hair drier which was delivered to our room very quickly. This motel reminded me of late 1950's or early 1960's style and was immaculately clean. One... More

This isn't our first trip to Key West, but was our first stay at El Patio and it will not be the last! We felt welcomed the moment we arrived! If you are anticipating a 4-5 Star, it is not. What it was is a well kept, clean older hotel. Our room was huge and exceptionally clean! No musty smells,... More

Stayed here on a few occasions, first time was around 8 years ago and keep going back. Very relaxed here and close to Duval, good location for everywhere really. Love the rooftop area and the pool. Altogether a great place to stay with friendly staff who are happy to help and clean comfortable rooms. Hope to be back next year... More
