If you are expecting a star rated hotel, go somewhere else Out dated rooms...kaka.... bug infestation in bathrooms.... This place is like the NFL...not the National Football League....more like the NO FUN LEAGUE...... Take your hard earned money and find the same priced cleaner and more accomodatiing hotel in the area. Looking out for everyday average joe.

Guests who have been evicted generally don't have anything nice to say about a place! Guests who are disrespectful of our staff, our rules and our guests are not welcome to stay at our property.

My room wasn't ready when I arrived so I looked around. The office staff was nice, the pool looked lovely and the upper deck was cute. After some sight seeing, I returned to the motel. The room was disgusting. It is a '40's motel with the original floors all stained and gross, and unfortunately the original mattresses and bedspreads. I...

Guests who have been evicted from a property generally don't have anything nice to say about it. They are welcome to stay elsewhere. We prefer to accommodate guests who respect their surroundings, our staff, as well as other travelers.

if you're expecting a 5 star hotel, go somewhere else. This is just the basics. Standard room had 2 beds. Clean-ish washroom however it was really small. The beds and sheets were clean - no problems there. The garden courtyard that our front door looked out on was really nice! No problems with our room, and all the staff were...

El Patio Motel is located in a residential area near the southern part of Key West (away from the commercial madness that is Duval Street). Due to a minimum age requirement, the motel is very quiet for those who prefer this sort of environment. The room (with Queen size bed and small refrigerator) was a bit small and the lighting...

If you're on a budget, this is definitely the place to stay! It's within walking distance to everything you want to see and do in Key West and if you're an independent traveler who doesn't expect any frills and want to enjoy a more genuine atmosphere in Key West, you couldn't be better off. The rooms are clean and spacious...

The place has a good location within walking distance to mostly anything in Key West, it is a small town after all. Decent place for the money, would stay there again and it is old school, which is fine with us. Kind of bright in the rooms at night from security lighting though.

We were looking for a good value location to stay in Key West and this turned out to be just that. Hotel is in a quiet location but at the same time within walking distance of Duval Street. The rooms are large, ours happened to have two seperate rooms with a double bed in each one, and are furnished adequately...

We are budget travelers and we are always looking for a deal. This was one of the lowest priced rooms in Key West and we were pleasantly surprised. The place is clean and the location is great.
