The pleasant owner greeted us eagerly at the door with a deep southern charm that could not go unnoticed. The courtyard we entered was lush with beautiful plants and a pleasant trickling fountain that welcomed a variety of birds for a bath. Our rooms were plentiful with necessities and added comforts. They carried a deep coziness that rang true to... More

The hostess, Patti, makes you feel right at home at El Presidio. The courtyard offers such a delightful respite from the city heat, and the birds love to visit there, too. Inside, our room was actually 2 rooms: the comfortable bedroom with a well-supplied bathroom, and also a lovely reading room! The breakfasts Patti made were amazing! One morning she... More

The inn is lovely, and the large, enclosed courtyard is a true oasis, but the best part by far is your delightful hostess, Patti. She is so friendly and caring...and a good cook too! A different, gourmet breakfast is served every morning in plentiful portions. My husband especially enjoyed the heaping plate of bacon that accompanied the main courses. The... More

First of all, there's the location. El Presidio is located on quiet streets in old town Tucson and is a perfect base for exploring old Tucson on foot. Don't miss the reconstruction of the original Presidio. The Tucson Museum of Art is a few blocks away as are some excellent restaurants. Cars may be parked outside (with a permit that... More

Patti the owner is the perfect host, greeting us & checking our likes &... More

We were mainly interested in the Sonora desert experience and found El Presidio with its perfectly restored old buildings and beautiful garden a perfect oasis to relax after a day of hiking. We thoroughly enjoyed our spacious appartment and great breakfasts - watching hummingbirds enjoying their nectar breakfast as well - but most importantly, Patti Toci is a perfect host... More

The space is beautiful, in old town in Tucson- loved the location and had lots of fun at the breakfast table with the other guests. The art and antiques are delightful, and the house and grounds have been restored and maintained in a delightful way.

This is a real gem of a B&B. The courtyard is totally private and just filled with plants and flowers. Patti is a wonderful host and her breakfasts are not to be believed. It is in the Presidio district and is an easy 7 block walk to the Convention Center or the Opera.
