    Default room availability

    Which sentence is more appropriate for a reply from a hotel receptionist to a guest?


    1) Please note that room availability is subject to change at any time,
    and rooms may not be available at a later time.


    2) Please note that rooms are available on a first come first served basis.

    Thank you.

    Default Re: room availability

    Both are equally appropriate, depending on the circumstances, because they mean different things.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
