My husband and I stayed in Room #8 at El Patio for the Offshore Race week (GO TEAM SUNPRINT!) We were pleasantly surprised with this charming little oasis considering the price! It's not the Marriott, but it's EXTREMELY CLEAN and SPACIOUS. No, it's not updated and fancy with the latest and greatest décor, there's not even a coffee pot...but the... More

This was our first visit to El Patio and I booked it based only on internet reviews and their own website. When we arrived, we were so pleasantly surprised! This motel is away from the busyness of Duvall, but still walkable with bikes available to rent. The staff was incredibly helpful and the room was clean and spacious. The best... More

Let's start by saying my husband and I are both back to basics people who love the style of old Key West. Also we are avid campers and outdoors people. This is the first motel we have stayed in where we really felt like real KW to us. If you are looking for fancy rooms, this is not it, but... More

My husband and I have stayed at the El Patio three times in the last year and will return again. The hotel is located close to many attractions. Bicycle rental is available on the property, and the swimming pool is clean and relaxing. I love leaving the windows open and letting the beautiful breeze flow into the room( in November... More

centrally located, however, the room I was in (#1) didn't have a microwave or coffee maker. The smell of humidity inside made it almost impossible to sleep the first night. I left the windows open and the AC fan on the second day, and the night was more bearable, when I closed the windows and turn the AC to regular... More

For the past several years I have come to Key West and and chosen to stay elsewhere for a variety of reasons, mainly based on info available online. This year I chose El Patio, and I regret not staying here on all my previous trips. Friendly staff, nice location, relaxing pool that was clean and private, and a spacious and... 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.

Though the staff were friendly they were indifferent when it came to guest satisfaction. Our original room was decent (and on the first floor) but had shower water coming up in the bathroom. We were relocated to another room they called a suite. It was simply a wall in between two beds. This actually made the room harder to cool... More
