Overall good - including the excellent staff! However, the room smelled a bit like mold and I couldn’t tell where it was coming from: Maybe the old flooring under the laminate flooring? Maybe the heater??

Everything was as expected except they charged me more than the price I booked at. Told me there was a resort fee that was not included on travelocity. I don't like underhanded practices.
