We recenly spent 4 nights at the El Presidio. Just walking through the old wooden gate and into the enclosed courtyard relaxed us - with its stone patio, fountain, flowering plants and trees. Our room opened directly into the courtyard and it was a joy to step out our door and have a glass of wine sitting in the quiet, enclosed courtyard. One feels very secure in this facility.
Patti is a very welcoming host and her breakfasts leave no room for lunch. She also thoughtfully stocks the room with snacks and drinks. We even had a small, well-equiped kitchen as part of our room.
Location is perfect for walking in the historic district as well as downtown; road traffic in the area is surprisingly light. Highly recommended.
