This motel is far from any luxury or even fair accomodations!!! The room had rust stains everywhere! There was a nasty bottle opener in the middle of the wall! The bathroom is about 3x5. You can sit on the toilet, reach the sink and the shower all at the same time. The closet with the rusted water heater was larger...

I input all the information in their submit form (which is not user friendly). I inadvertantly put the wrong date, but the correct day, month and year. I received an email back with only "Wrong Date". That's IT! Here's a hint: ---> "Thank you for contacting El Patio. Unfortunately, the date you unputted into the request form appears to be...

We rented bikes from the motel as soon as we checked in. It was great being able to ride all over town without having to look for parking. Being that we unknowingly booked this hotel in the middle if Fantasy Fest, we appreciated that it was in a neighborhood away from all of the craziness, but still a couple of...

If you're looking for luxury, keep looking because you won't find it here. However if you are looking for a consistently clean, friendly, and inexpensive (for the Keys) place to stay while in Key West then El Patio Motel is probably your best choice. Luckily we live in Florida, so it's easier for us to steal away and head south...

We stayed during the week so the prices weren't sky high. We were with 4 adults in a suite. The brochure says that the beds are queen size but they were wider. Service was good there is no breakfast but there many places to go. The motel is about fifteen minutes walk from southern most point and Duvall street. And...

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 However, our rooms were on the ground floor on the shade side of the hotel which made the rather outdated rooms seem even more dark and gloomy.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....
