          There will be 3 adults planning to stay for 5 nights some where around August 22, 2015. I am planning to book a room with Standard Two Queen Beds. If I fully paid my room before I check in, may I know how much should I pay for the deposit during I check in? I would like to pay the deposit in cash. Thanks.
