Not sure here, as Expedia wouldn’t give me anything without the booking card number… but since they don’t have my card number through AirBNB, my guess is booked it with their own card and put me as the main guest. I was required to show my drivers license and provide a credit card for the deposit at check-in (One of the red flags) — I’d imagine one way to stop it would be to require the name on the card to match the guest checking in. Because the deposit was under my card (But the guy at the counter insisted the stay at least was pre-paid) I couldn’t abscond with the towels in a form of petty justice.
