We stayed here right after FantasyFest and the town was relatively quiet. Booking was done a few months in advance. The staff is very friendly and the area is nice and quiet, more residential than commercial. It is close to the water and some good restaurants. Rooms are a good size. The bathrooms are currently being upgraded. AC is window... More

We just returned yesterday from our 5th time staying at the El Patio. We absolutely love it there. George and the rest of the staff go above and beyond to make your stay the best possible. I found this place 5yrs ago when we decided to go on our first vacation to Key West, and we have been going back... More

We stayed for a couple of nights. We were greeted warmly and given our room immediately even though we had arrived early. We were also given information on the motel and key west in general including various vouchers. Our room was downstairs and though small was very clean and had everything we required. Unfortunately, my husband left his suit here... More

I stayed at the El Patio hotel for a week November 2016. The hotel is an older art deco facility with tons of charm! Great location near the Casa Marina and Higgs public beach. Features of El Patio are two room suites and a great rooftop patio excellent for Sun bathing or a quiet relaxing get away spot. A no... More

Very small very outdated if you're looking for a roof and a bed this is it. I've only experienced a bathroom as ridiculous as this one when I was in Europe the toilet is almost under the sink so literally the sink is in my chest while I'm sitting on the bowl. Oh and the zero water pressure. Shower head,... More

We had a blast with my friend. Rooms are clean, housekeeping service great and good location. Just in front of our room was a fountain with a little sitting area where we spent a lot of time in the shade. Always again. Bathrooms are small and a little bit outdated. This is way I give a 4.

It is quite and there are parking space for the guest which is a big plus in key west. The pool is really nice with nice plants around it. Rooms are big but the bath is super small. You can go on the roof and chill there or soak up the sun. Internet is ok.

This was our 3rd trip to Key West and 3rd time staying at El Patio. The front desk staff and housekeepers are always very nice and accommodating. We had an early flight in and a later flight leaving and they made sure we weren't just hanging out waiting to check in. It's on a quiet street, but close to the... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We did not arrive until 1:00 am they left a key for us. Very nice gentlemen. Would recommend highly. Excellent hotel for the price. Not fancy, but well worth every penny.

Okay location.. Cabs expensive .. Call pink cabs not yellow .. The pink cabs are friendly... Not superior property. Be careful of the catus trees because you will slip and fall... Disgusting and not worth your money... Very disappointed.
