“Great little hotel ==> very friendly staff !!! : -)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

The staff was from the beginning always very friendly and helpful.
our room was nice size and absolutely clean. Great value for the money.
The pool area is very nice if you just want to relax. Close to Duval Street.

By accident I left my lights from my truck running for 3 days. My trucks battery was dead when we wanted to leave.
My girlfriend ask the lady at the receptionist for jumper cables. She provided us in no time with the cables and one of her staff
members helped us jumping my truck. Very nice people.
We had a great time and we will stay there again.

This hotel is dangerous! How can anyone rent an unsafe room unless you don't care? We stayed in RM 26 on April 18, & the key for the deadbolt did not work, & still could not be deadbolted from the inside from dryrot. This was the last room left! Plus, the little push button on the door was the only protection you had. There was plenty of foot traffic & people trying to open our door. It was loud so they were probably tipsy. So unless you want to take your luggage with you when you travel, would you want to stay there? We decided to leave & find some place else immediately. Plus, the beds were old & the shower soap holder was so black, you would think it was from paint, when it was not cleaned properly. Now before someone reads this & says so what, there is no crime in Key West, think again. A man was stabbed in the lung on Duvall Street on April 23 for no apparent reason, so things do happen in Key West. Sure I was trying to save a buck, & thought it would work out, but think about your loved ones first

Room Tip: check the door closes properly, To me if you notice an apparent problem like this, & the motel...

I booked a room here (overpriced by the way) because the BB I normally stay at was booked. Well, from first impression the place looked ok, just the basics, it is too far from the best bars on KW, if you are not on a bike it is going to be a very, very long walk down Duval. The rooms are not very clean, bathrooms are disgusting, toilet didn't even have a lid, mattresses are hard and if this wasn't bad enough, when we came back to our room at night there were roaches running all over the floor and bathroom. Office closes early so we were stuck with the roaches for the night. The next day we went to address this problem as diplomatic as we could and the rude staff said that roaches are common in KW, HOW RUDE AND DISMISSIVE. The best thing they could do for us was to switch our room. The next room had no roaches but it smelled horrible, not cleaned, same filthy appearance as the last one. I've been coming to KW for the past 20 yrs and never experienced this level of filth and rude behavior anywhere I stayed. Unless you want rude treatment, roaches, and a filthy place when u are away from home, STAY AWAY FROM THIS DISGUSTING PLACE, there are plenty of great BB's which by the way give you continental breakfast unlike this trash, this place won't even give you a cup of coffee.

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.
