This beautiful, historic Inn is such a magical place. Patti is the most gracious hostess and serves the most incredible breakfasts. Should you find yourself needing a place to stay in Tucson, this should be your number one choice. We'll definitely be back! Thank you, Patti!

Easy to find; easy to park; Owner Patty there to make the stay enjoyable; room clean; internet fine; grounds lovely; breakfast really good....at the time we wanted it; two quality restaurants within a couple blocks; the downtown "action" easily walkable; city quiet in the morning which was good for an early jog; price competitive. See, all good here.

Breakfast was plentiful and Patty, our host, made our party and the other guests special breakfasts and was as helpful and friendly as anyone could expect. This is a really nice... More

We stayed with Patty at the El Presidio for 3 nights in October and, in a four month long trip, it was one of the highlights of our trek. The property is absolutely gorgeous, the room was private, quiet and beautifully done and the breakfasts were delicious (and huge)! The B&B is located perfectly to explore Tucson and especially the... More

El Presidio is a charming old inn reflecting the the cultural heritage and architecture of old Mexico and located in the historic district of downtown Tucson. Most guest rooms open onto a lovely cobblestoned courtyard nurtured with an abundance of flowers. A fountain and a cat or two add distinct flavor. My room was in the main house, and was... More

Stayed for 3 nights in El Presidio. Location is great in old Tucson in a historic house with an unique private patio. What makes it excellent is the personal service and lovely breakfast of owner Patti. All the information and personal touch you need. Felt very welcome. Highly recommended

My wife and I stayed five nights in October 2016, the stay was the highlight of our two week holiday in the USA. Patti upgraded us at no extra cost, she is a brilliant hostess, always had a smile, asked where and what we had done, gave us excellent advice on where and what we should do in Tucson. Breakfasts...
