When we pulled up it was quaint...

I love El Patio Guest House. I have stayed there about 8 different times in the last 3 years. Every visit has been great, Angela treats you like family. My father even had a medical emergency on one trip last year, and Angela did everything possible to help accomodate us during this emergency. The location is great, only 2 blocks...

I have not been there recently but I have stayed at the El Patio guest house for many years. We have always found it to be Very clean and safe. The location is good, but most of all we were always treated like family by the owners Angela & Jesus Martinez. Our vacations there were among our best vacations ever.
