“I love this place.”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

I loved my stay at El Presidia Inn Bed and Breakfast. Our room had a small kitchen, large bathroom and very comfortable bed. The central courtyard was a joy. Our host Patty was most gracious and attentive to our needs. Breakfast was hot and delicious. The coffee was wonderful. Donna S

My husband and I stayed in the Gate House Room at El Presidio Inn and had a wonderful time. Patti, the innkeeper, is an incredibly kind and welcoming hostess who takes great pride in her historical property and truly cares for the welfare of her guests. Our clean and cozy room included a sitting area, kitchenette (with snacks and cool drinks waiting for our arrival), bathroom and bed. My husband was able to easily access the wireless internet and prepare for his business meeting in the quiet and comfortable room. The beautifully restored home has a wealth of history (which Patti lovingly shared with us) and is located right down the street from the famous El Charro Mexican restaurant. She cooked us a delicious breakfast and made us feel like family. I plan to stay again in the future!

El Presidio is located in the old historic precinct of Tucson. Its quiet and very close to the centre of the city. Patti is very warm and makes you feel welcome from the very first minute. Patti went out of her way to fit in with our needs by cooking breakfast a little earlier than usual as we had an early train to catch. Thanks Patti. The rooms are not ultra modern but everything works fine and is very homely. The courtyard is magnificent and provides a safe and relaxing oasis if you just wish to chill out.
Ask Patti to steer you to a mexican restuarant nearby if you are into this type of meal as its authentic and the food is superb.

Yes, it's hot in Tucson in July, but El Presidio Inn is a cool and restful oasis. The courtyard is pretty in the daytime with its shade trees and fountain and colorful flower pots, and it is just magical at night with small twinkling lights. My husband and I have stayed there many times over the years when we have been in Tucson for concerts and other events. Patti is a friendly and thoughtful hostess, keeps the rooms meticulously clean, and prepares truly memorable breakfasts. It's easy to walk to the Art Museum, the Fox Theater, the historic districts, the old train station, the 4th Avenue Street Fair, and many other downtown Tucson attractions. This is our getaway home in Tucson.

El Presidio, with its beautiful landscaped courtyard, fountain and unique details provided a
perfect spot for our Tucson experience. Patti's warm hospitality, delicious breakfasts, great
directions, and local information made for an outstanding visit. The location made it so easy
to walk to local attractions.

Staying at El Presidio Bed and Breakfast was truly a treat. Patti is a wonderful hostess who pays attention to every detail of your stay. The breakfast provided each morning was fresh, home cooked, and tasty! Patti was able to provide information on where to eat and visit in Tucson, and even helped book reservations for dinner. The house itself is absolutely beautiful, and the room was very clean and comfortable. The courtyard and fountain are very nice, having coffee in the morning and watching the birds. The best part of staying here, is being in the center of the historic district, within walking distance of downtown. Overall, cannot say enough good things about the B&B. highly recommend.

This is a true gemstone in the desert. Our host Patti was wonderful, friendly and so helpful. Our room in the historic El Presidio Inn in the center of Tucson was beautiful, quiet and Patti provided so many thoughtful amenities...and the breakfasts prepared by her "were to die for". To come back to the quiet, inner courtyard after a day of site-seeing or hiking to sit, relax and listen to the water from the fountain and watch the hummingbirds flit from flower to flower always provided a tranquil end to our days at El Presidio. The true gem is Patti.
