My girlfriends and I recently stayed at the El Patio Motel in Key West, FL. Although the hotel is an older structure, the room was clean, convenient to the beach and the staff was very friendly. The bathroom was small, but clean and plenty of hot water. They will provide a coffee pot in room if you ask for one.... More

Great location. Practically in the heart of Key West, just like 5min away from the action. We went on our Harley and enjoyed out time. It was also clean and tidy. Management was very helpful, and polite. My only complaints are that it was a bit out-dated, and a over-priced. Definitely coming back.

We left it late to book accommodation in Key West and consequently had little choice other than the El Patio Motel which was one of the very few rooms we could find. By Key West prices it was reasonable, near the beaches, although quite a walk from the centre of the town. Yes, it is ten minutes from Duval, but... More

Being budget accommodation I expected at least a certain standard but the standard double room we were given , despite booking it months ago was beyond a joke. It was on a back street with no window. Just frosted glass and grilles. The floor was disgusting and obviously had needed replacing several decades ago. I put my shoes on to... More

On an island of high-priced motels and hotels, we chose this one for its "low" (by Key West standards) rate and its location near the southern beaches. It is in a very pretty quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance of Southernmost and Higgs beaches, the Butterfly Conservatory, and the art galleries and restaurants of southern Duval Street. The motel's pros... More

We stayed for two nights in January. The room had a queen size bed in the front room, a TV,decent size, and a small table with two chairs, and a small fridge. You walk through the front room into another bedroom with a dresser and a lamp. The small bathroom was located by walking through the rear bedroom. The mattress... More

The upside of our stay is I read the reviews and knew what we were getting into. The down side is that the bad reviews were closer to the truth and the good ones. We stayed here because we could not find another hotel or B&B in Key West for the weekend we wanted to visit. I decided to take... More

I don't want to spend my last dine on accommodations when I travel. We chose El Patio because we got a discounted rate since we were part of the KWLS. Even without a discount, it's the best value in town. We were in room 30, the studio with a kitchen, living room, separate bedroom. It was perfect. Although we didn't... More

We went from Miami to Key West by car and booked in advance the El Patio Motel to sleep one night. We found a clean and organized room, with a refrigerator and air conditioning working well. The room was very old, antique tiles, antique sink, faucet old. but everything worked well. Highly recommend for a night due to the cleanliness... More
