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... More

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.... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We picked this motel because of the value. This is a great traditional Key West motel. The front desk staff is great and ready to help in anyway possible. The only thing I think they could do to improve the rooms is put a microwave,coffee pot and some curtains in the rooms. We will return again to sta here. Thank... More
