Set in the downtown historic district, El Presidio combines Victorian detailing with adobe walls nearly two feet thick. After years of painstaking restoration, innkeepers Jerry and Patti Toci opened their doors as a B&B in 1985, offering elegant guest rooms extensively appointed with antiques and collectibles, and a flower-filled courtyard highlighted by a traditional fountain.

Our family stayed here for 3 days. We were attending our son's wedding back in April. Still to this day, I cannot stop talking about the B&B. The courtyard is breath-takingly beautiful and peaceful. Patti is an absolute delight - she is in our prayers everyday. The food was wonderful and the rooms are lovely. Hopefully, in the near future, we will come back. We are now spoiled.

We had a lovely stay in this outstanding B and B. Patti is a gracious hostess and the breakfast was delicious. The courtyard is beautiful with many flowers and a charming fountain. Location is within walking distance to many sites.

We stayed at El Presidio for a full week, but wish it could have been much longer. Besides being the loveliest B&B where we've ever stayed, with a lovely courtyard garden, beautifully appointed and comfortable rooms, and delicious breakfasts, the real charm of the inn lies in the warm and welcoming personality of its hostess/owner, Patti Toci. We were made to feel right at home and felt really spoiled by all the little extras - water, juice and sodas in our fridge, trail mix and other goodies on our kitchenette counter - and the beauty of the garden, with its comfortable chairs and even a friendly cat to bid you welcome, all unequaled by anything we'd experienced before. Patti's knowledge of local history and her advice regarding places to visit made our Tucson stay unforgettable. Can't wait to return!!

My sisters and I stayed here and had the most enjoyable time. Patti is full of information and is proud of the persidio community. The rooms and home were great. The gardens were wonderfull even in Aug. We felt welcome and confortable. The breakfast was so delicious. We will visit again when we are in the area. You can't go wrong staying here, enjoy!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the El Presidio Inn. Patti was a most welcoming host and keen to make us feel at home. The house is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Our room was spacious with a large en-suite and separate private sitting room. Every attention to detail was taken. The breakfasts consisting of fresh fruit, freshly cooked omlettes, pancakes and bread along with coffee and tea were delicious and we were enouraged to help ourselves to beverages whenever we needed them. Patti is very knowledgeable about the Tucson area and keen to offer recommendations of what to do and see and where to eat. We would strongly recommend this Inn and look forward to returning in the future.

Our hostess, Patti Toci, has created a most wonderful experience at her B&B, a wonderfully restored turn of the century home with the most delightful and unexpected courtyard. Cozy fully appointed rooms and breakfasts you must experience! Our four nights there were just heaven. Patti is the most knowledgeable and charming hostess. We hope to be back soon!

I couldn't be happier about my stay at this bed and breakfast. Patti was so friendly and helpful in everyway. She made you feel so welcoming and really wanted you to have the best time in the city. The room is great, only that the temperature control is a little tricky to play with (either too cold or too warm), but not a big issue. Just a lovely, lovely stay.

I have stayed at El Presidio B&B twice now and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It provided a quiet, beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. The food was great, the amenities very generous and Patti is a delightful hostess and great cook.

Stayed three luxurious nights in this beautifully decorated 19th century home. The spacious cobblestone patio is laced with lovely colorful flowers and plants. Each breakfast Patti warmly serves is absolutely delicious. Our rooms included a separate private seating area which was nice and comfy for me being an early riser. First class!
