Strangest response from a hotel I've ever heard. Maybe a misunderstanding?

You most certainly don't pay in advance at the time of check-in. At least not at a major branded hotel.

Qatari ownership but an Egyptian frontman as far as I understand it!?

Some hotels here in Asia (Thailand, Bali) are certainly cheap but the question is how low you're expecting prices to be?

$40-$50 is still the minimum for a branded hotel after tax.
