Stayed here for 2 nights in a double room. The room is definitely no frills, but I felt like it was a nice value. To get to Carolina Beach you walk one long block, three short blocks, and across an overpass to the side of the road where the resorts are. Angela is wonderful. Some of the bedding was a...

We spent 3 days at this little "Diamond in the rough" This is definately for the modest traveler looking for a quite retreat and looking to get away from the MegaResort!! Our room was cozy and clean...50's like decor with a fridge that kept my beer cold...13" TV with many channels...a super cold AC...an OK bed and a hot shower!!...

The owner is wonderful and friendly. This is my second trip at El Patio with my friend. I love the area. The room is small but very clean and the owner is extremely friendly and goes out of her way to make you comfortable.

This was my third time staying here and as usual the owner Dona Angela is a sweetheart. She is always willing to accommodate my needs since I am disabled, and she always has time to chat with me and my friend about areas where we should go and visit. She is always helpful, and I don't see her as the...

My least favorite part of Puerto Rico is San Juan. That being said, when our flight was canceled last minute because of weather, we were in a frenzy trying to find a place that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg (chain hotel). Luckily, within seconds I was able to do a quick search on my phone, and found El...

It was only $69 for a double (twin beds) and $60 for a single. Walking distance to the beach (5 min). Only 10 rooms, so you have the pool to yourselves. The pool is small, but big enough to cool off after a hot day with a number of deck chairs to read and relax in. There is a small...
