Positive Reviews

Quiet and convenient location

For many former guests, the location of the El Patio Motel is one of its biggest advantages. Positioned centrally in Key West, the motel is a short walk from the beach, restaurants and attractions like the popular Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. In addition, the neighborhood is considered quiet and peaceful.

Accommodating and cooperative staff

The staff at the motel has helped produce a lot of positive reviews from previous visitors. The customer service is generally considered to be welcoming and nice, while the staff will assist in all ways that they can to improve your stay.

Clean and cozy pool area

The El Patio Motel's outdoor swimming pool area was well received by most past guests. The pool is said to be clean and relaxing, and the surrounding greenery helps further enhance the ambience of this part of the accommodation.

Negative Reviews

Basic and dated throughout

Whilst the El Patio Motel is intentionally designed to resemble a 1950's-style building, a variety of past visitors have felt that the accommodation was dated in unnecessary areas. Furthermore, the limited amount of room amenities and public facilities has also been a disappointment.

Bathrooms very small

Many former guests have bemoaned the private bathrooms at the motel. Their reportedly small size has made it awkward to not just move around comfortably, but also to even store toiletries sufficiently.

Effective but noisy air conditioning

Although it is supposedly effective in suitably controlling the temperature of the rooms at the El Patio Motel, a sizeable number of previous visitors have slammed the loud and bothersome noise produced by the air conditioning units.
