We've stayed at this hotel twice. Both times because they were much more affordable than other hotels in the area and we could still walk to the heart of the historic district. This hotel has a great retro, Spanish feel with a bougianvillea canopy dripping over the pool area, lush gardens and cactus all around. They have a great rooftop...

We had a great time! Don't believe every review you see, especially another review of El Patio complaining about "rude management" saying "don't be loud." Thanks, folks, you must have been the LOUD IDIOTS at 2, 3, or 4am on the rooftop deck with a boisterous party. You woke me up, and I was two stories away on the ground...

We were a little wary to stay there after reading some of the reviews, but having been to Key West many times, we are very familiar with how things are there. Many places are simply older. The El Patio at New Year's is an excellent value! The staff was very nice and friendly to us, we had no problems at...

Considering hotels in Key West are through the roof, El Patio is an ok place to stay for a night or two. Rooms sort of resemble a 1950s cement cell with terrible phone reception. I booked this hotel mostly due to the Wifi, which is a hotel standard these days. To my surprise, the router was down and there was...

Owners EXTREMELY rude and unfriendly. Rooms very small, beds not comfortable, ants all over the bathroom floor. Many rules and restrictions making for a less enjoyable stay. The best part was the top deck, but don't be loud. I Do not recommend this establishment. Key west is a laid back, beautiful place, this motel was anything but laid back!

The rooms smell - and mind you, not of roses. Linen ancient. So are the bathrooms. If you like ants, definitely go for it. If you don't care for indoor insects, choose a different place in Key West to stay. El Patio cleverly put itself online, while many better places didn't - shortly before Christmas 2011 there were vacancies all...

This is a very quite motel and well worth the money. They are cheap and in a residential area. The pool area is private. Once given your room key, you will walk into the center courtyard of the motel which is serene, lush and tropical with a fountain and seating area. We had Room 4 - the two queen beds/two...

I stayed here for Fantasy Fest with 2 friends. None of us were expecting much given the prices during that week, so we knew it wouldn't be good. However, even the low standards were missed by a substantial margin. Bugs on the sheets (no, not kidding), ants all in the room, absolutely disgusting. My advice would be this: If this...
