How to Conversation Reservation in English

Sample Conversation
Receptionist:    Thanks for calling Quality Inn. Morine speaking.
Caller:    Hello. I'm interested in booking a room for the September long weekend.
Receptionist:    I'm afraid we're totally booked for that weekend. There's a convention in town and we're the closest hotel to the convention centre.
Caller:    Oh, I didn't realize. Well what about the weekend after that?
Receptionist:    So... Friday the seventeenth?
Caller:    Yes. Friday and Saturday.
Receptionist:    It looks like we have a few vacancies left. We recommend that you make a reservation, though. It's still considered peak season then.
Caller:    Okay. Do you have any rooms with two double beds? We're a family of four.
Receptionist:    Yes, all of our rooms have two double beds. The rate for that weekend is $129 dollars a night.
Caller:    That's reasonable. And do you have cots? One of my daughters might be bringing a friend.
Receptionist:    We do, but we also charge an extra ten dollars per person for any family with over four people. The cot is free.
Caller:    Okay, but I'm not positive if she is coming. Can we pay when we arrive?
Receptionist:    Yes, but we do require a fifty dollar credit card deposit to hold the room. You can cancel up to five days in advance and we will refund your deposit.
Caller:    Great, I'll call you right back. I have to find my husband's credit card.
Receptionist:    Okay. Oh, and just to let you know...our outdoor pool will be closed, but our indoor pool is open.
