Taking a Reservation - Đặt Chổ



Receptionist: Thanks for calling Quality Inn. Morine speaking.

Caller: Hello. I'm interested in booking a room for the September long weekend.

Receptionist: I'm afraid we're totally booked for that weekend. There's a convention in town and we're the closest hotel to the convention centre.

Caller: Oh, I didn't realize. Well what about the weekend after that?

Receptionist: So... Friday the seventeenth?

Caller: Yes. Friday and Saturday.

Receptionist: It looks like we have a few vacancies left. We recommend that you make a reservation, though. It's still considered peak season then.

Caller: Okay. Do you have any rooms with two double beds? We're a family of four.

Receptionist: Yes, all of our rooms have two double beds. The rate for that weekend is $129 dollars a night.

Caller: That's reasonable. And do you have cots? One of my daughters might be bringing a friend.

Receptionist: We do, but we also charge an extra ten dollars per person for any family with over four people. The cot is free.

Caller: Okay, but I'm not positive if she is coming. Can we pay when we arrive?

Receptionist: Yes, but we do require a fifty dollar credit card deposit to hold the room. You can cancel up to five days in advance and we will refund your deposit.

Caller: Great, I'll call you right back. I have to find my husband's credit card.

Receptionist: Okay. Oh, and just to let you know...our outdoor pool will be closed, but our indoor pool is open.
