After arriving after midnight, we had to get up at 5 am and found we had no bath towels. They charged us $2.50 for two cups of coffee made in the room. The ac was barely adequate, and the elevators are small. The carpets in the hallways are not very clean, but the room was. The staff is friendly, and they have computers with free Internet. The location in the center of town is great, and they have security at night.
