This motel did the job! It was a 10 min walk to the furthest point south of the USA land marker. About the same fo reach the less populated end of the main 'strip' It was a great motel apart from the building work at the back which were about 2 yards from our door. They weren't too intrusive though... More

My husband & I stayed here 3 nights/4 days. We were kind of on a budget so we decided to stay here based on the cost of the rooms & other people's reviews on trip advisor. I would like to say it was an older motel but it was very clean. I always pull down the sheets/blankets & check them... More

The hotel is old but is very clean. No breakfast included. Who looks for a room only to sleep, this is a good option. The front desk staf is very friendly and give you a lot of hints from Key West. The bed is not too good.

A bit off the beaten path in Key West so it is quiet and it is a great bargain, too. It is a small, old Deco-style motel with free parking, a pool and very helpful, friendly owners. In need of some fixing up but nothing that should deter a budget-conscious traveler from staying here. It is clean and comfortable -... More

This was a very last minute trip planned and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. When I travel to the keys I usually stay at the Marriott or the Hyatt , and decided to give El Patio a try. I was so pleasantly surprised. This was one of the most charming hotels I've stayed it. It is... More

Art Deco!!! very roomy and lots of space to hangout if needed. We had an easy stay at this quiet location and could walk or bike ride everywhere very easily. We quickly realized how loud the downtown area could get so we were grateful to be far enough away to be able to rest when needed. Helpful staff. Fridge was... More

This little motel is charm at its best. Courteous employees and very very clean. I loved it. Going back there on my next trip to the keys. Affordable very close to shopping areas, bars and restaurants.

The El Patio was a decent stay - certainly for the money (as compared to all other Key West Accomodation we could find) it was a very good deal. It's location is the best part - close walk to Duval, but in a quiet neighbourhood. It was clean and relatively comfortable - pool was ok, rooftop deck kindof nice. Don't... More

My first trip to Key West and this motel was located within walking distance of everything. I would suggest taking the Old Town Trolley for travel and not the Conch train as the stop is just a block away. If you are only interested in a place to crash and not luxury this is a great place. The room doesn't... More

My spouse and I stayed here for two nights in May 2015 based upon the recommendation of fellow international travelers who stayed here in 2013; and based upon the review in the book, "The Florida Keys, A History & Guide," my edition from 2003. Obviously outdated. I am somewhat hesitant to offer my personal critique, since it seems that many... More
