Checked in on 9/5. Expedia charged my card on 9/4. Even though I already paid for the room, a day in advance, using Expedia, they needed to see my driver's license and take an imprint of my credit card. Then I was asked to sign a form that was somewhat blank because they had printer problems. Oh, I also had to give them my phone number. When I refused to sign the form because I couldn't read what it said, I said they could catch me in the morning when I can read it after they fixed their printer. Then we left to go to a wake. They effectively locked me out of my room, even though my stuff was in it because I didn't sign their form.
BTW, carpet was filthy and the drape was broken so I couldn't close it completely. When I signed the form, after they fixed the printer, they gave me two keys that worked.
Now, if I can only remember not to use Expedia again, and never stay at a Howard Johnson's again, I'd be ahead of the game.
