It was a cheap place with walking distance to "Southernmost US point". Do not expect any luxury, amazing looking special room. The room was clean and good to just go to bed at night. I stayed there for one night with my fiance and 3 year old son.

We stayed in six hotels on a recent tour of Florida and this is the one that I wouldn't stay in again. However, our rooms were on the ground floor on the shade side of the hotel which made the rather outdated rooms seem even more dark and gloomy. If we had rooms on the top floor next to the...

The location of this hotel is good if you like walking but the rooms are certainly not good. The room we got was worn and dirty. The front desk staff is slow and not helpful. I do not recommend anyone to stay here. There should be no problem finding a better place than this. The price during our stay was...

Yes, this hotel is a bit of the dive, but that only adds to it's character. The grounds are lush and tropical, and it's a great location for the price. It's a bit of a walk to the beach (10 minutes-ish). It's very close to the Southernmost Point, and about a mile to the main tourist area in Old Town....

I have always wanted to go to key West but I always postponed any trip there because I could never find a good deal on any Hotel in key West even during hurricane season. I hate overpaying for a room that I will only sleep in. Well after I discovered El Patio I was finally able to take my long...

I took my granddaughter and her friend to Key West from Aug. 1-5. We stayed at The El Patio Motel. I felt like I had gone back in time, and to me, that was good! The location was perfect. The beds were very comfortable. The grounds were clean and green. Beach was a short walk. Our rooms were very large....

El Patio was a pleasant surprise given what we paid for a two bedroom room. Yes the motel is hotel, but it has a retro feel and they work hard to keep things clean and pleasant. Front desk staff was always professional and friendly. It was just what we needed to hangout at the Keys for a weekend with our...

A small little motel off the busy path. About a 10 minute drive to Duval Street but too far of a walk. The room was small & old, but clean with white wicker furniture. Cute little pool with beautiful flowers hanging overhead. Free parking and bicycle rental. Not near any restaurants. You get what you pay for here.... a small...

I booked this motel for four nights, and two rooms. We had hoped that it would live up to the reputation of the pictures and the reviews. The two rooms were booked via direct call to the motel. My charge card was charged immediately for two room, and when we arrived and moved in, we discovered that this location left...
