    Hotel Bill

    Next time you think your hotel bill is too high you might want to consider this:

    Husband and wife are traveling by car from Key West to Boston ...

    After almost twenty-four hours on the road, They're too tired to continue,
    and they decide to stop for a rest.

    They stop at a nice hotel and take a room, but they only plan to sleep for
    four hours and then get back on the road.
    When they check out four hours later, the desk clerk hands them a bill for
    $350.00.

    The man explodes and demands to know why the charge is so high.

    He tells the clerk although it's a nice hotel, the rooms
    certainly aren't worth $350.00!
    When the clerk tells him $350.00 is the standard rate, the man insists on
    speaking to the Manager.

    The Manager appears, listens to the man, and then explains that the hotel
    has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center that were available
    for the husband and wife to use.

    'But we didn't use them,' the man complains.
    'Well, they are here, and you could have,' explains the Manager.

    He goes on to explain they could have taken in one of the shows for which
    the hotel is famous.

    'The best entertainers from New York , Hollywood and Las Vegas perform
    here,' the Manager says.

    'But we didn't go to any of those shows,' complains the man again.
    'Well, we have them, and you could have,' the Manager replies.

    No matter what amenity the Manager mentions, the man replies, 'But we didn't
    use it!'

    The Manager is unmoved, and eventually the man gives up and agrees to pay.
    He writes a check and gives it to the Manager.

    The Manager is surprised when he looks at the check. 'But sir,' he says,
    this check is only made out for $50.00.'

    'That's correct,' says the man. 'I charged you $300.00 for sleeping with my wife.'

    'But I didn't!' exclaims the Manager.

    'Well, too bad,' the man replies. 'She was here and you could have.

    heres what I have to add

    Hotels have 2 rates, their standard rate and their walk out rate and usually depends on availability, time you check in, special events, and other things. For instance the hotel I work at has a standard rate of 139 for a regular room. We are the nicest hotel in Waco and the newest. Our walk out rate is 109 which I offer if we have plenty of rooms to sell and its slow. If its almost full or a part of a big group, I usually do not deviate from the standard. But dont expect to come into the nicest hotel in Waco and pay the same price as you would at the Sandman motel. Just tonight I offered the walk out rate to a couple and they griped about it and said they could go to Motel 6 for 70. Its just like going to On the Border and telling them you can get a burrito for 99cents at Taco Bell. Even though this situation was only comical, you wouldnt believe how many times it really happens.
