... for key not working. At this point I said I new I had paid but unfortunatley when I pulled my receipt out it had only one night listed on it. Like I said earlier should have checked it better before signing.

In the end decided to argue the point for a while though given the receipt I really didnt have much to argue with and though it wasnt a lot of money I had paid it. In the end the manager at reception called here her manager who heard my story and in the end asked me ...
