El Presidio Bed and Breakfast, and its owner Patti, is the best getaway you can get in Tucson. We're Tucson residents, but wanted to get away for my birthday and we stayed at El Presidio. It was fantastic and we highly recommend it. We can't say enough good things about it. Not only is the location so amazing and close...

After introductions, our proprietress Patty Toci said, "Think of this as your own home." That began a lovely 5-day stay in an historical, Victorian home, decorated to the hilt for the holidays. Patty remained attentive for the whole stay to our preferences and needs. She even picked grapefruit from her tree in the back yard per my breakfast request. All...

This beautiful, historic Inn is such a magical place. Patti is the most gracious hostess and serves the most incredible breakfasts. Should you find yourself needing a place to stay in Tucson, this should be your number one choice. We'll definitely be back! Thank you, Patti!

We stayed two nights here and were extremely happy. The room is homey and quaint but has satellite TV and free internet. The bathroom is modern and fully equipped. Breakfast was plentiful and Patty, our host, made our party and the other guests special breakfasts and was as helpful and friendly as anyone could expect. This is a really nice...

We stayed with Patty at the El Presidio for 3 nights in October and, in a four month long trip, it was one of the highlights of our trek. The property is absolutely gorgeous, the room was private, quiet and beautifully done and the breakfasts were delicious (and huge)! The B&B is located perfectly to explore Tucson and especially the...

El Presidio is located in downtown Tucson in the historic district and a short walk to the new light rail. It is a very convenient location with excellent nearby restaurants and other amenities. The b&b is an oasis in the heart of the city. It is an historic building, with an enclosed courtyard, surrounded by large stone walls, suggesting a...

We stayed two nights at El Presidio Inn. What a wonderful B&B. The historic house and its beautiful courtyard is a real gem and a perfect location in the heart of Old Tucson. We stayed in the Carriage House room -- tucked away in corner location, with a private little corner of the courtyard -- perfect place to enjoy a...

El Presidio is a charming old inn reflecting the the cultural heritage and architecture of old Mexico and located in the historic district of downtown Tucson. Most guest rooms open onto a lovely cobblestoned courtyard nurtured with an abundance of flowers. A fountain and a cat or two add distinct flavor. My room was in the main house, and was...
