Positive Reviews

Quiet and convenient location

With its position in a supposedly peaceful area of Studio City, the location of the El Patio Inn was appreciated by most former guests. As well as Universal Studios Hollywood being just five minutes away by car, other popular attractions in the area - such as the Hollywood Sign and Warner Bros. Studios - are in close proximity to the hotel.

Accommodating and welcoming staff

Recent visitors to the hotel were generally full of praise for the service that they received. The accommodation's staff members were regularly judged to be friendly, obliging and helpful when dealing with all manner of questions and requests.

On-site parking is a bonus

The complimentary on-site parking was appreciated by most of those that used the facility during their time at the El Patio Inn. With one space reportedly guaranteed per room, getting parked at the hotel was rarely an issue for previous guests.

Negative Reviews

Rooms rough around the edges

The condition of the rooms was criticized by various previous visitors that stayed at the El Patio Inn. Whilst they were clean for the most part, problems with the rooms include worn carpets, malfunctioning cable channels and a lack of electrical outlets.

Disappointing breakfast

Breakfast was often a frustrating aspect about staying at the hotel for past guests. With the accommodation's complimentary breakfast typically consisting of just pastries and drinks, the variety and attention to detail was seen as severely lacking.

Wi-Fi at a poor standard

The quality of the El Patio Inn's Wi-Fi was regularly lambasted by former visitors. Not only were the download speeds described as painfully slow, but some even struggled to access the Wi-Fi provided by the hotel.
