Great find at the last minute

We annually go to visit relatives in a small town outside of Frankfurt that has a limited number of local hotels. Since we visited "both sides" of the family in one day we left later than expected--around 10 PM. I thought my daughter had already booked a hotel, but this turned out to be wrong. We booked online and drove to Gasthof zum Biber directly arriving around 11 PM. Despite the fact that the website had booked a "triple room", the manager had none left. Without a second's delay, he escorted us to 2 separate rooms, each with king-size beds and asked if that would be ok--telling us about the mixup on the way and explaining there would be no additional charge. Each was clean, well decorated and had their own bath. We were extremely happy. The next morning the breakfast was great--even including scrambled eggs and bacon--a rarity in Germany. When we checked out we bought some of the locally made "rose-hips" jams, syrups, etc. in the Hotels gift shop. Overall a great experience! Oh, and although we spoke German, the manager was quite fluent in English as well.
