El Presidio Inn Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 45 Tucson B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 February 2012

I recently had the opportunity to stay at the El Presidio for a couple of days. It's a secluded oasis in the heart of the historic district, in downtown Tucson. Our cozy cottage was so comfortable, and just outside was a warm courtyard, totally surrounded by lush plantings and trees. When we arrived for our first breakfast other guests were raving about the previous mouth watering meals served. After sampling the gourmet entrees served that morning, I understood their exuberance. This charming B&B made it difficult to leave for our next destination. Patti is a wonderful host, and is helpful in every way possible. It was a true joy to meet Patti and enjoy her accommodations.

We stayed for 3 nights in late January in the carriage house. Accommodations are inside a lovely courtyard with flowers and a very tall Mesquite tree. The owner, Patti Toci, attends to every detail, providing bottled water, snacks, etc. The carriage house was beautifully decorated, with a separate sitting room. The pictures on the website give you an idea of the surroundings but cannot do justice as to how nice everything really is. When the weather cooperates, outside seating is available to enjoy the beautiful views. Patti is also very helpful in recommending restaurants or other activities in the area. The location is in the historic area and just a block or two from a great Mexican restaurant, El Charro. The prices are inclusive of tax and very reasonable for such a quality accommodation. As other reviews state, the breakfasts are fantastic, beginning with fresh fruit and followed by french toast, some type of egg dish, and either bacon or sausage.

We are repeat customers of this gracious and charming Bed and Breakfast. Built in 1886 and kept in immaculate condition, you will step back in time and slow yourself down. Devastatingly great hot breakfasts. Today was banana stuffed croissant french toast, eggs with baby potatoes, and bacon. Yum! It is also very reasonably priced for a top tier, full service experience that is in the heart of the Presidio Historic Disctrict!

After reading the previous reviews we were really looking forward to our stay with Patti, we were halfway through a 3 week tour of the area. What a delight to stay in this beautiful home. We stayed two nights in the coach-house, full of beautiful furniture and china, what a change from all the hotel rooms. The garden was beautiful by day, but magical at night when the lights came on. Pattie is a wonderful host and a great cook, and it would have been so easy to spend all day just chatting to her. We arrived as strangers and left as friends and hope one day to go back.

We would like to be original, but what can we say apart from what was already said? Cathy is a very charmant person, her breakfast is delicious, her house is very comfortable, cosy, has a beautiful garden and is very well located. We recommend El Presidio to everybody. Martha+Olivier
