Hi there ... I'm from Pittsburgh and stay at the El Patio atleast 2 times in the summers. Great Pool, location and Choo-Choo Lounge is fun. It is so close to everything near the penninsula.

I like staying there, because my teenagers and their friends walk to Waldameer. Rooms are basic, but clean and staff is very friendly. Price .. weekends higher, but sunday thru thursday, rates are very reasonable. Give it a try You'll like it

El Patio is a Pitt. I was ashamed to bring my family here. If you don't care about cleanliness and love a party and 50 cent beers, don't care if there are people outside your room all night and don't mind an occasional domestic disturbance or shooting. .... go ahead and stay here.

Oh my- to some of these postings. I'm an Erie resident. The El Patio isn't fancy but its fine. We've been there many times when my father stayed. Our young children have enjoyed themselves. The area is fine, nothing scarey. Choo-Choo's bar is fun. Yes, sometimes people that live in the area come there to have a good time for special events, pool passes, or Choo-Choos, so it may not be the quietest place. Near the Penninsula and Waldameer.

I am from Pittsburgh. I stayed there last year and it was great for the kids. The other guest were fine. The place is fine if you do not want to overpay and your not too stuffy. I have Three kids and they had a blast. Remember that is what vacation is about. Relax and enjoy the cheap beer.

I wrote about this motel awhile back. Look at it only cost $29. The rooms are big. Everything was OK. Not great but OK. Beds were OK, Water pressure was OK. Staff were very OK. I liked this place because it was cheap and I didn't feel afraid. Would suggest that you take a room on the top floor, no elevator but do have a baggage lift.

OMG!!! We walked in and immediately out of our rooms at the El Patio. The good thing is, the manager immediately refunded our deposit and was very understanding for which we were relieved. However, the motel is a total dump. The pool had a bunch of 50 year old bear drinking men surrounding it -- I would NEVER have my children swim there EVER. The adjoining rooms my family reserved smelled like mold, perhaps because the "kitenchette" and bathrooms were moldy?! There were spiderwebs in the bathroom, the floor was coming up in the "kitenchette", the stove was filthy, the refrigerator grotesque, there were moths and various other flying insects roaming about. I went to pull up part of the sofa to see if there was a sofabed and fleas flew out...SPEND AN EXTRA FEW BUCKS AND STAY AT A HOTEL! IT IS NOT WORTH IT!!!

A couple years ago I had nothing bad to say about this place. My sister stayed this summer when visiting from FL. It has become a pit. She had to change rooms 3 times. The kitchenettes were filthy, the stove didn't work, the ceiling leaked. And its not all that cheap anymore. The room with the kitchenette was $109. You can get a room at Residence Inn for as low as $129. She finally came and crowded in with us.
