          sascharasin
          Does the manager not think that with the preponderance of awful reviews about his hotel - rather than calling guests "unethical" because they used the card they wanted to use to book the room - a card that was accepted for the purposes of guarantee, and was perfectly valid but not the card the guest wanted to use to pay for the room - he should maybe take ownership of his abysmal management skills - resign his position and perhaps try working as a cashier at walmart instead? Or does he accept that he has lied more than once about his hotel (for example - lying and saying that if there is a problem - they call the guest (see other reviews) - they absolutely do not - even if a guest is coming 400 miles to stay at the hotel.)
