Just for context, I have stayed in Key West on several occasions over the past twenty years both on business trips and family excursions. Prior to this trip, I have always stayed at either the Casa Marina Key West, Sheraton Key West, or the Westin Key West. I was well aware prior to my arrival at El Patio Motel that... More

If your desperate then MAYBE. Has not been updated in 30+ years. Shower head drips and keeps you up all night. Stand in the court and you can hear every rooms conversation. Have seen closets bigger than the bathrooms. Grunge in every corner of the room. Need a chiropractor after sleeping on the mattress. Spend the money and find a... More

We were 4 in a 2 room suite. Unfortunately there were no windows, just those sort of plastic blinds, so we could hear anyone walking outside. As well the bathroom was super tiny, the smallest I ever sa in a hotel in fact :) Otherwise the room was clean and the location was awesome, just a couple of steps from... More

For what we paid for this room I expected a lot more. I guess there just isnt enough room in key west. The bathroom was so tiny and no room to turn around in which makes it hard when traveling with family. No microwave or breakfast or even coffee/tea included. Even the check in office was smaller than a closet.... More

Maybe in Key West they just don't have high room standards. But the prices are!!!! The room is cold, but old, average 20 years back in time. Shower drips and overall it does not feel clean. But you are close to Duval street, the most southern point, Hemingway House. Just a one time visit worth this hotel.

A large room with a good AC, if it's on all day. The service from the staff is great. Very nice people. The pool area is small, considering all the units. It is clean, which is good. The bathroom is very small. The room lacks the cozyness I want when I return from a long dayoutside. I loved the terrace... More

If you like Hilton or Intercontinental or other bourgeois chains, skip this place. But you'll be missing the Key West charm you came for. Noisy yet efficient window AC, floors in need of a good scrub, and bathrooms out of the 50s. In other words, real atmosphere. Friendly staff, nice pool, wonderful rooftop deck are all great. I'm glad I... More

A really good basic motel for the casual visitor. Bonus is a pool. Not in the busy frontage but in the more sedate suburbs but still within easy reach of all attractions. English people will understand when I say that it reminded me a bit of Butlins. We were given a rollaway bed at no charge for our unexpected extra... More

Stayed here for 1 night due to a short trip down from Miami. Really liked the place. A block of rooms, spacious room, soft bed, silent, great location, free wifi. Small, but fine bathroom. Big TV, airconditioning worked great, refridgerator in the room, all good! And there is a pool! I am a flight attendant and see the most beautiful... More

Stayed 2 nights in a spacious first floor corner unit equipped with 2 queen beds, flat screen tv, table, dresser, mini fridge, closet, and small functional bathroom. It was clean and perfect to just get your nights sleep. We are not the types to hang around in a hotel room so don't need luxury suites. Free parking was a perk.... More
