Natalie, I am very sorry your son can not book a room with out a legal guardian with him. He is concidered a minor until is is 18 years of age. My apologies about not being able to refund the amount paid. Our hotel was sold out and we were not able to recompensate the revenue lost on the room. Iowa Code 137C.25E: Each individual renting or leasing a room, accommodations, or facilities of the hotel shall register, and may be required by the owner or operator of the hotel to show proof of identity by producing a valid driver’s license, or other identification satisfactory to the owner or operator. The identification shall have a photograph of the individual and include the name and residence of the individual. If the individual is a minor, the owner or operator may also require a parent or guardian of the minor to register.
