Where's the dollar?

Three men check into a hotel. The room cost $30 so they each split the cost and pay $10 each. They go to the room.... In the meantime, the clerk realized he made a mistake and should have charged the 3 men $25 for the room. So he went to the room to give the me the $5 he owned them.

Before he knocked on the door, he thought to himself, "This is not going to work, three men and 5$ won't divide up right." So the man pocketed $2 and gave each man $1. So now, the men have paid $9 each or $27 for the room and the clerk has pocket $2.

$27 + $2 = $29...... Where's the other $1

The other dollar can be found in the first comment :-)
