    As far as checking in under 21, I don't know. A simple call via there 800# would get you the answer.

    So let me get this story straight! Your reservations we cancelled because of a problem with Your credit card and Was Not Their Fault! They tried to contact you to correct this and you didn't give them a phone number they could reach you at and Was Not Their Fault again! Then when you finally arrived they didn't have a room for you but found your accommodations at another hotel and You Gave Them One Star through no fault of theirs. You seem to be a difficult person to please, I know one thing though and that's you owe them an apology for your bad review rating and a correction of that review if possible. It seems to me that if I were rating you as a reviewer I might give you only One Star.
