Can you reserve a hotel without a credit card?

ANSWER: Policies for reservations are set by the hotels so you’ll have to call the individual hotel and ask.  Hotels have a policy as to what’s required to make a reservation as well as a refund policy for cancelled reservations etc. Many hotels charge a deposit equal to a night’s stay plus tax immediately upon receiving a reservation.

The credit card is the easiest way for hotels to easily fulfill both of those policies. In some cases a hotel will take a check or wire transfer deposit most frequently for events that are non-refundable.
