Room smelled of mold. Asked to change rooms since my son is sensitive but they said all rooms were full.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Liked: Staff & service
The location was great; staff were helpful. They did not clean the room between days which surprised me; I am assuming this is the new eco-way to go but generally hotels would at least tidy up, take out the trash, and re-make the beds . And the bathroom tub has black gunk in the seams which made me feel like I could not take a bath.
