Thumbs down Hand at Bellagio 1/3, different line would've been better?

I was playing at the Bellagio, full ring 1/3. I had around $215 at the time of the hand. I'm in late position, I raise to $12 and I get two callers from UTG and mid position.

Pot is $36 and my cards are A/10 of clubs.

Flop: 5D - JS - 2C ($36)
Action: UTG bets $20 into the pot and player from mid position calls, as do I.

Turn: 5D - JS - 2C - QC ($96)
Action: Checks around to me, I bet roughly $45 into the pot. Player from UTG raises to $90, I call.

River: 5D - JS - 2C - QC - 8S ($276)
Action: UTG checks and so do I, he tables J/10H.

So, I know I played the hand quite poorly. The UTG player was betting into pots and I felt he was opening up somewhat light. The player in middle position was playing relatively straight forward, not really pulling any moves. I had a tight table image as I was showing down decent hands before this hand and not playing too loose. I took down a couple of smaller pots beforehand, and the last time UTG check raise so small he missed his draw. So, where can I play differently? Drawing to a potential broadway, Ace and clubs kept me in the hand. Any less outs and I would have folded to the raise.

And, this was meant to be posted in the No Limit section. A move may be necessary.

I agree with my pre posters. Calling flop is a leak, although you get great odds.
There arent many turn cards that improve your hand.
The Qc is the best card you couldve hoped for.
As played, you have to call the turn given the odds and raise size.
A shove is -ev against his raising range i think.

you shouldn’t have had $215 at the time of the hand.

I think that we'll find a significant amount of donk bets on the flop to be fairly weak holdings. I'm either raising the flop or folding. But leaning more towards folding. Though if I am raising then I am obviously firing a second barrel on the Q.

Also, always have at least 100bb in front of you if possible.
