Upon arrival we found the room to be filthy, after expressing our dissatisfaction they changed our room and charged us another $45.00 for the upgrade. No alarm clocks, no hair drier, exceptionally, small bathroom, no wake up call, limited parking, filthy rooms- observed housekeeping washing several floors with the same bucket of water, could not use computer to print boarding...

Nice motel in a residential area, a bit dark at night walking back from Duval St. Very clean but bed creaks and groans like my back does now. Paper thin walls and pets are allowed, to bad it was such a barky lil fella. Garden was very nice!

Very good rooms and lovely beds. Good location close to the beach, but no breakfast places or restaurants close by. Long way to the city center.

The hotel was fine, but we let them know we had to leave one day earlier than planned due to a mix-up in our return flight. The hotel, despite the six days notice, charged us the total amount for that night. Their policy states a three-day cancellation, but apparently if you have arrived that doesn't count.

Visiting the Florida Keys is much more authentic when you avoid the cookie cutter chain hotels and stay at authentic Florida Keys Motel. I am a bicyclist and I ride the Florida Keys often. I found the El Patio Motel several years ago and have never been disappointed. It is clean, affordable and far enough away from the craziness of...

I stayed here a few times throughout the years, and have to say this must be one of the best motels I have stayed in! The gentleman at the desk was very nice to show me a room the first time, just so I could picture what I was "getting myself into." I must say I was always impressed with...

I stayed here on the advice of a coworker yet found myself utterly depressed at the state of the place. It probably hasn't been renovated since 1940. The linens were far from fresh and the bars on the windows left me wondering. Don't count on using the Internet - the network key doesn't work and the front desk isn't the...

It appears as though our modest motel was not really what you were looking for. We understand that our motel is not for everyone, but we try our best to accurately describe our establishment. We are a modest, clean and quaint motel. If ever there is ever a problem, we hope that our guests inform us about it, so that...

I stayed for a week at the El Patio just before Christmas. I've waited a month before posting a review because I wanted to be able to give an objective opinion. There were things I really liked about this place, others not so much. Pros: -Cost - I looked a long time before booking my reservation and there just wasn't...

We stayed there this weekend and really enjoyed it. This is an old FL motel that has been kept up nicely. The gardens are beautiful and the we enjoyed the rooftop deck in the mornings and evenings. The rooms are clean and comfortable with original Cuban tile. The motel is situated on the south side of the island close to...
