I loved our time at El Presidio. Patti is amazing and so friendly and welcoming. The courtyard is just such an unexpected oasis behind the gate. Great breakfast. The room was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. Most welcome was the fridge full of water! Look forward to returning.

Patti is an extraordinary hostess. When she opens the big wooden gate into the beautiful and relaxing courtyard, she opens up her arms to welcome you. The B&B is lovely, spacious, comfortable, clean, and very pretty. The beds are so nice. Her breakfasts are imaginative, healthy, and sumptuous. And, once again, that beautiful courtyard with the gardens that Patti works... More

Don't overlook the genteel El Presidio Inn when planning a visit to Tucson. We just enjoyed a single night visit. Once our hostess Patti opens the gate, a most unexpected hacienda style courtyard awaits, right in the heart of the city. Street parking is a snap with the permit Patti provides. The grounds are both intimate and spacious because there... More

I loved my stay at El Presidio. My room and facilities (telephone, TV, Wifi, fridge, local information, library and sitting room) were perfect. The Inn is an old Spanish mansion with antique furniture. The rooms enclose a fabulous courtyard with a fountain, desert flowers & birds; very relaxing to sit there mornings or in the early evening. Breakfast is nourishing... More

The Presidio Historic District in Tucson has real treasure in this lovely B&B. Due to a train running over five hours late, we arrived near midnight and were warmly greeted by Patti, the gracious proprietor of this inn, despite the late hour. The wonderful room, the beautiful grounds, the delicious breakfasts prepared by Patti made for a memorable experience. We... More

We truly enjoyed our 4 nights at El Presidio. We had the gate house room with the kitchenette. It was perfect for our visit. We came to hike at Saguaro National Park and this room allowed us to prepare our lunch each morning. It was quite comfortable with ample closet space. Very clean too. Patty is the ultimate innkeeper! We... More

I have stayed at El Presidio on many occasions and it has always been lovely. The courtyard is very peaceful and relaxing with all the lovely plants and flowers around the fountain. Birds and butterflies enjoy it as much as I do. The rooms are charming, comfortable and quiet. Patti serves up a sumptuous breakfast in her friendly dining room.... More

This is a charming restored Tucson antebellum, with the most beautiful, serene, enclosed garden! We held a family gathering here this weekend for my father's funeral. Patti was gracious, and so sensitive to our needs. The garden has numerous sitting areas that are perfect for gathering and visiting! The accommodations are clean, and decorated so beautifully! And the breakfasts are... More

Spent three nights there. The patio garden was a real highlight and the generously portioned breakfasts were expertly prepared. Patti, the hostess, goes out of her way to include fresh, healthy ingredients (many from Trader Joe's). Our one criticism is that the fruit salads were on the table, uncovered, long before we were ready to eat. Patti works hard to... More

Our group stayed at the El Presidio for 7 nights. We enjoyed the historic significance of the B&B and the garden courtyard was so relaxing and quiet to spend time with our friends.
