This it! I have used my credit card for my children using rooms from Mi clear to Ca. Most had information and took it by phone from me should the kids be short on cash! This Motel refused to take the card by phone, When I called them they said if I reserved a room with my credit card, I could do that.But they still would have to see my card. Well, you know your cards are checked out and you have your information on the back. Thnka alot motel 6, we have decent collage kids in route to college and I am the proud nana who will help them? No thanks to you! I hope your corp. office see's this!
