El patio was very close to Higgs beach which was a very nice beach. A lot of the times I have been to Key West in the past I just visited duval st and did not really pay attention to the beaches. It was nice to start off our day at the beach which was only a couple blocks away. El Patio is also close to duval st. (the slower end) but it was nice not to hear people partying all night long. We walked up and down duval the first couple of nights but decided we needed to rent bikes to keep doing it. The motel rents bikes right at the front desk which i found to be a much better way to get around the island oppose to moped which can be harder to find a spot to park.
The beds were a little stiff and noisy but other than that the place is great. It really has a key west feel to it. I don't know what is up with any of the bad reviews. Do people actually expect to stay at one of the cheapest and convenient motels in key west but get everything you get at a 800 a night hotel? If you want 24 hour room service than this isn't the place for you. But I didn't go to Key West to be laying around in a hotel either.
