My friend and I had a great time staying at the Patriots. It was like staying at a friend's house--the staff was super courteous when we arrived, we had absolutely no problems, and the room was perfect!
When we got there, the staff was waiting for us--seriously like we were family! I think one of them even said "Good, you're here!" (or at least that's my recollection!)
Parking was a breeze--we were able to park right next to our room, so the car was in full view all the time.
What's more is it was within EASY walking distance of everything--restaurants, shops, and bars (my friend & I were on a dive bar mission--totally accomplished). AND the price was way better than anyone else.
Bottom line: If you're looking for a unique (not chain hotel), affordable, and charming place to stay that's right next to the middle of everything (close enough but far enough not to be noisy) and has great beds, this is for you. That they treat you like their close friends is the icing on the cake!
