I paid more to have a room along the river. When we arrived we noticed dead bugs on the floor and walls. As we started looking around more, there was MOLD growing on the ceiling. There was an area where trim along the floor was missing and wires were exposed. I was okay with the room being outdated but the room was disgusting. When I addressed it with staff they were very polite, they stated they have trouble with mold in the rooms along the river. That is concerning to me! They offered to move us to a different room, but it had cobwebs and was not clean either. After seeing the second room, they gave us our money back with no questions asked which was great. Staff was kind but I will never stay at this hotel. I read reviews saying the rooms were outdated but spotlessly clean, so that is why I booked this hotel. This is NOT the case.

Probably the only good thing about this place was the indoor pool, but they could also change the temp everyday not every other day. Also would be convenient if they had a microwave in the rooms

Had to ask for towels after placing dirty towels outside as asked. Room had an odor. Difficulty adjusting water temperature in shower. Temperature varied from hot to cold without manually adjusting. Front desk staff was friendly. Housekeeping staff didn’t want to give replacement towels.
