Our night bell rings to a cordless phone always by my side. We do get quite a few late travelers looking for a bed. And yes I get often the remark, can you do better on the price, answer No. But if the guest is argumentative I tell them the motel down the highway discounts like crazy, go see him ! ( I understand he is always cranky) Heh, Heh, heh cruel but comforting to me. Over 10 years the night bell has been quite rewarding, financially.
