While I certainly agree with your payment policy or as the host put it "no pay, no stay"- my issue is that there was no notification and no willingness to meet half-way or in good faith. The issue was not that my credit card was "bad" but rather AirBnB had not updated my card info even though I had updated it. I offered to write a check while the issue was sorted out with AirBnB -nothing more nefarious- just as a measure of good faith. While trying to deal with AirBnB on the phone in the hosts dark driveway I was told that I had to deal with it then and there and quickly, as the host was leaving the area shortly. Listen, I understand that sometimes things like this happens, but as a host myself, I would have handled this more delicately, especially if I had known that a guest was at my home and potentially stuck without a place to stay, or in the least I would have attempted to resolve the issue with AirBnB myself (which the host did not). I found it odd that upon my initial inquiry she asked for everyone's full name and drivers license numbers, but as this was a last minute work project, continued nonetheless. I found her attitude to be very unpleasant and unwilling to help resolve this issue with my 3 colleagues. They are filmmakers, as am I, thus we are a "crew". And as someone who frequently uses AirBnB I can say with no apprehension that next time I'm in the area I will find another place to "crash".
