“El Patio, Key West”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Decent place to stay if you are looking for a budget hotel closer to Duval than more expensive hotels. Rooms were basic, however clean and the bed was comfortable. Room did have a frig.but no other amenities. The roof top patio was a nice place to relax at night under the stars. Hotel does have a decent size pool and the beach is near by. The staff was extremely helpful and provided great information on where to eat and places to see.

The rooms were clean, the staff lovely. If you are looking for a reasonable place to stay, this is the place. There are no amenities, a coffee maker would have been nice. It was close to the beach, and a short walk to Duvall.

El Patio was a last minute reservation in a sense. The crowd was much older as their site says, 30+ and it definitely looked it. The lady who checked us in could be little friendlier and staff wasn't very welcoming. The rooms were decent but definitely not worth the price so you know you were paying to stay in Key West opposed to the room itself. The outside was the best feature.

Room Tip: Book your rooms ahead of time in the outer areas close to the beaches of Key West.

We had a great time here! Beautiful roof top patio, nice pool and close to everything. The staff couldn't do enough for us! Going back in a couple weeks. Would highly recommend! Only a short distance from Duvall Street and they rent bicycles so you don't have to drive and search for parking.

Room Tip: Stay on the ground floor.

Very nice older hotel/motel. Fifties Art Deco style. Very clean, decent furnishings. Close to beach and Duval Street. It has nice landscaping and a patio on the upper deck. Swimming pool and free Wi-Fi. Good price for the location.

If this place were along the highway some place you'd pay much much less. Think 1950's road side motel. The rooms are clean and basic, the staff nice, the pool wonderful. But the room rates are ridiculous and the motel is a hoof and hike from anything. For the same prices, if you book early you will stay in a much nicer place.

Room Tip: They all seem nice, we faced a wall along an alley.

We spent the night at El Patio and were quite pleased with the location, friendly staff, and lovely, vintage furnishings. I liked the tile, wicker furniture, and the TV in our room had just been updated. There was also a nice refrigerator in our room. Our room was clean and comfortable. We didn't use the pool, but it looked clean. It was fun staying downtown in a great city, and many of the attractions we saw were within walking distance from the downtown area of Key West. I would recommend this hotel to other travelers for the value and quaint decor.
